Once his body is awaken it's discarded by the machines and a small team of rebels are there to collect him. They introduce him to the real world. "The Matrix" set new ground on slow-motion filmmaking. The film won four Oscars: three for sound and one for visual effects.

  1. "Neo" played by Keanu Reeves. Neo is the hacker who turns out to be the 'Messiah' who will awaken people from the Matrix. Kenau started his career playing in guest roles on television shows and made for television movies. It wasn't until he landed the lead role in the film "Speed" that he became a bonafide star. As a "Matrix" cast member that put him on the international star stratosphere map.
  2. "Morpheus" played by Laurence Fishburne. Morpheus is the leader of rebels who had been searching for "The One" who would lead the team to victory over the machines. Laurence has been acting since the 70s and has had a long career in movies, television and voice-overs. His role as a "Matrix" cast member made him internationally known.
