Hugo Weaving Wasn't Totally Sold On The Matrix Resurrections Script, But That's Not Why He Isn't In The Movie

Hugo Weaving has played an almost absurd number of memorable characters in big-budget blockbusters over the years, but his role in the first three "Matrix" movies rises above them all. From the moment he steps on screen, Agent Smith is a force to be reckoned with. Cold, robotic and increasingly egotistical, everything this guy does is absolutely fascinating.

Even though the first movie ends with Neo (Keanu Reeves) seemingly killing him for good, filmmakers Lana and Lily Wachowski seemed to realize how much they'd struck gold with the character. Not only did they bring him back, but they brought him back a lot. In "Reloaded" and "Revolutions," Smith has the power to turn other people within the Matrix into carbon copies of himself, which means that the sequels are filled with moments where multiple Agent Smiths are hanging out in a single shot.

"Revolutions" ends with Smith being defeated (again), for good this time.
