Would Agent Smith work without Hugo Weaving?
The Matrix: Resurrection is just around the corner, guess what? We’ll actually see Agent Smith again. I think it’s a good move since the villain is the sworn enemy of the trilogy’s protagonist. From the beginning, Keanu Reeves’ Neo has been tortured by the Matrix’s top program executor. When Neo had to face his body, it turned into a super awesome power struggle, a kung fu fight that every movie lover will forever remember. Neo then seems to kill his sworn enemy, but that’s not the end for him. Agent Smith challenged Neo again in the sequel “Reloaded” and again in the third film, “Revolution.” With the revolution, Agent Smith finally came to an end, but not before he wreaked havoc on Neo and the Matrix itself. This must be a villain who brought real pain to our guy Neo, and with the resurrection announced, I hope Agent Smith returns. Before I go on, I just want to say that this character would never have become so popular if it wasn’t for Hugo Weaving playing him. I mean, seriously, can you even go wrong with Hugo Weaving?
This guy has worked in some very influential franchises, and with every role he plays, he actually turns into a different character each time. It sounds like the idea of acting, but Hugo Weaving is just on a different level. Try comparing his performance in Agent Smith to that of Elrond or the Red Skull. you can not. It’s a completely different character each time. If that’s not enough for you, remember that he also voiced Megatron in Michael Bay’s Transformers movies. Nice resume, isn’t it? Needless to say, Hugo Weaving’s stellar performance got us hooked on Agent Smith. With that in mind, it’s clear how many Matrix fans are disappointed by the fact that Hugo Weaving won’t be in Resurrections. Like Laurence Fishburne, the Matrix veteran won’t be reprising his role, but his character will be in the movie. Wait, what the hell is going on here? For Morpheus, this other version is a younger variant of the Laurence Fishburne version we all know and love. We’ll take it, but what about Agent Smith? As it turns out, he’s coming back, but Hugo Weaving won’t be playing him. Yes, old news, but if the character returns, who will be the actor behind him?
If you watch the second trailer, it looks like Jonathan Groff will be the new Agent Smith. He’s taking over from Hugo Weaving, which I think is a pretty tough job. Even in the second trailer, you can see how much of the tone Grove is trying to convey the weave. Understandable, because it’s the kind of intimidation that makes Agent Smith such a menacing villain. But if you ask me, that’s what Hugo Weaving did, because only he can do it for that particular character. I have a feeling Agent Smith wouldn’t be able to work without Hugo Weaving. Hey, I could be wrong, I hope I am. Based on what I’ve seen in the trailer, Jonathan Groff seems comfortable with continuing the role, but personally, I’ll be persuaded when I watch the movie. I seriously think it’s a risky move to have a character in the movie without the original cast. Even if the Grove is really good, it still wouldn’t feel the same without the gorgeous Hugo braid.
Should we even hurt our brains by thinking about how Agent Smith came back? I think we should boil it down to the complex logic of matrices. It really doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s all crazy science fiction that we shouldn’t dwell on. For the resurrection, Agent Smith has a new form, which is that of Thomas Anderson’s business partner. Does it make sense? We need to remember that a villain is a program that “dies” once before. He didn’t die because he didn’t really die, but simply refused to be removed from the matrix. That’s why he’s back to fight Neo and stronger than ever. It really wouldn’t be surprising if he came back now, since he’s still a program stuck in the Matrix database. Again, he’s looking for Neo’s head, but for some reason he’s waiting for Neo to live idle in the Matrix again. This new form is his cover, and he’s fully aware of the danger that could be posed if Thomas Anderson remembers his past as Neo. We’ll find out why this new version of Agent Smith takes this approach, so again, let’s not think too much of it. I’m still disappointed by Hugo Weaving’s absence, but that only makes me curious. I still don’t think Jonathan Groff will have the same impact as Hugo Weaving’s performance. However, it gave us a new opportunity to take a new look at the character and show us just how eccentric the Matrix really is. But hey, at least we can expect another epic Agent Smith vs. Neos kung fu showdown. How could you possibly refuse?
