THE hold broken, NEO stumbles back over the body, with the three SMITHS in pursuit. He somersaults, comes up on his feet, and jumps to the left, putting one Smith in front of the other two. He attacks, his killing blows destroying SMITH, smashing through his blocks. He falls, and NEO takes on the other two, giving a kick jump that knocks both of them away in one shot.
As he comes down, a wall of Smith's converges from all sides. They stop, leaving a circle around him.
WE PAN BACK to view a sea of black-suited SMITHS flooding the plaza.
AS his hand passes over his face, it is refreshed, anew, perfect again. He surveys the wall-to-wall SMITHS.
SMITH talks with his voice, times a thousand.
"NEO, leave the Matrix. You know not what you're doing."
"Well, is that right?"
HE turns to the METACORTEX building. It's repairing, growing steel girders and concrete skin.
NEO's face darkens.
REALITY SHIMMERS as his anger strikes out at the building. The tops floors burn, and then explode. The explosion rips down the building, slowing, slowing, then stopping.
THOUSANDS of SMITHS are gazing up at the building, concentrating on combating NEO's attack.
GREGORY sees the building exploding, and runs. He smashes through an access door.
GREGORY hurtles down the stairs, one at a time.
EXT. METACORTEX BUILDING
THE building is frozen, mid-explosion. TONS of pieces hanging in the air, suspended only by frozen tendrils of fire and arms of smoke and debris.
THE SMITHS attack NEO. They fight in a massive melee, dying in mass. Meanwhile, the METACORTEX building pulls back together, the damage and flame disappearing as time/space around it is reversed.
