The Matrix script
The Matrix (1999)
Synopsis: Neo (Keanu Reeves) believes that Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), an elusive figure considered to be the most dangerous man alive, can answer his question -- What is the Matrix? Neo is contacted by Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), a beautiful stranger who leads him into an underworld where he meets Morpheus. They fight a brutal battle for their lives against a cadre of viciously intelligent secret agents. It is a truth that could cost Neo something more precious than his life.

THE MATRIX - Rev. 3/9/98 6.


She bursts out of the room as Agent Brown enters thehall, leading another unit of police. Trinity races tothe opposite end, exiting through a broken window ontothe fire escape.


In the alley below, Trinity sees Agent Smith staring ather. She can only go up.


On the roof, Trinity is running as Agent Brown rises overthe parapet, leading the cops in pursuit.

Trinity begins to jump from one roof to the next, hermovements so clean, gliding in and out of each jump,

contrasted to the wild jumps of the cops.

Agent Brown, however, has the same unnatural grace.

The roof falls away into a wide back alley. The next

building is over 40 feet away, but Trinity's face isperfectly calm, staring at some point beyond the other roof.


That's it, we got her now.

The cops slow, realizing they are about to see somethingugly as Trinity drives at the edge, launching herselfinto the air.

From above, the ground seems to flow beneath her as shehangs in flight, then hits, somersaulting up, stillrunning hard.


Jesus Christ -- that's impossible!

They stare, slack-jawed, as Agent Brown duplicates the moveexactly, landing, rolling over a shoulder up onto one knee.
