When Neo takes the red pill he is now awaken in the "real world", where he finds himself in a gooey sperm filled pod that is attached to one of hundreds of towers holding other pods (also filled with humans). He looks around him and then a Machine comes and checks him out, sees that he's Keanu and probably realizes that it doesn't like his movies, and flushes him. Then as Neo's floating around in a sewer somewhere (I didn't know robots can produce excrement), the crew of the Nebukadnezar pick him up and start training him. Here's the question:
Why does he get released by the Machines?
According to the storyline, humans get freed all the time, going through the same experience as Neo did when he got flushed down the toilet. It happened to the whole crew of the Nebukadnezar. So when they get "freed", WHY do they get freed? Ya get what I mean? Imagine this: you're my friend and you're in prison. I wanna get you out but I can't because obviously I hate the guards and they hate me (and the guards also hate the human prisoners). So all of a sudden, the guard just lets you (my friend) out of his cell and flushes you down the toilet and then I just happen to be standing outside of the prison walls waiting for you. Why the hell didn't the guard just kill you (my friend) instead of letting you out for no damn good reason??? I mean obviously there's a war going on between the Machines and the humans, so what the hell?!
This was bothering me all last night as I was watching The Matrix on HBO (and in HD thanks to my new Sony Bravia, suh-weet). I just hate little things like that that get by in movies. Don't get me wrong, I am in no way a dominMatrix who gets a huge boner over the movies, but I just thought I would pose this question. If anybody has any good insight as to WHY the damn Machines let Neo out of their posession, then please, do tell.
