    First, I also liked the movie. I keep hearing people gripe about it, but it was a good movie, answered enough questions, and left some to be thought about. Aside from the Trinity death scene, and the recreation (almost) of the great lobby scene from the first movie.. I thought it was pretty good.

    Anyways, I believe Neo is still alive. I only say that because the Oracle, at the end of the movie, said that one day they will probably see Neo again (or something similar). I also think it would be odd for the scene where he is being 'carted' off by the machines, if he was dead. Looked to me like they were taking him to rest. Remember, he has a "connection to the source". I doubt the little fight in the rain with Agent Smith would have killed him.. but becoming him and being the proxy for his deletion certainly could make him need some rest.

    I see in 3 years they will be handed another wad of cash for another installment. Maybe Neo will be a cyborg... or, maybe he always was!!
    • Well, there's two ways to look at his carting off. If he were dead, why would they cart him off like that? OTOH, if he were alive, wouldn't they be giving him medical attention, have him hooked up to tubes?

      Anyway, if I had to guess, I'd say he isn't dead, just because I expected them to clearly show he was dead, if he were dead.
