Where was the machine taking him at the end?
Who knows, who cares. Maybe to bring him back to the humans?? What does that have to do with anything. Did you want them to just leave him there?
Machines will still need power, so how can they survive if the war ends? Mass suicide?
Well now that there is peace, they will work something out. Either side is now not trying to obliterate each other. Maybe humans can use the matrix to go on vacation anywhere! Then the machines get some power.
How can Zion remain as is, the machines know exactly where to go next time?
What next time?
Were the ones Smith formerly possessed still carrying remnants of him as before?
The guy who was taken out had Smith still in him. Smith was annilated by Neo and the Oracle. Everyone at the end was still in the matrix, so if taken out, they would be Smith-free.
Why did the machines decide to help Neo... the Smith clones still provided energy?
Did you not listen to what the Oracle said to Neo near the beginning??? She said Smith was his opposite and is capable of putting all life, man and machine to an end. His power was beyond that of the machines. Which is why Neo said to the talking machine at the end, "...the program Smith has exceeded you"....or something like that.
I know the first chick died, but they did a pisspoor job of explaining the Oracle's change.
True but whatever, you can't blame the directors for the first Oracle dying, they didn't include that in the script so had to think of something simple.
The list goes on, and on, and on....
BRING IT ON
Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.
