The Matrix Reloaded

During the entire freeway chase, almost every vehicle was GM made. GM donated about 300 cars for use in the film. By the time filming was finished, almost all of them were wrecked in some way.

Monica Bellucci's dress is some what see-thru. You can see that she isn't wearing underwear.

In the highway chase scene, the license plate on Trinity's car says DA203. If you look in Daniel 2:3, which says "he said to them, 'I have had a dream that troubles me and I want to know what it means.'" This is possibly making reference to Neo's dream, because he went to the oracle partly to figure out what his dream about Trinity meant. The biblical text is speaking about King Nebuchadnezzar's searching for the meaning of his dream. In Verse 3, the Nebuchadnezzar says, "I have dreamed a dream." In Verse 5, when asked to explain his dream, he says, "The thing is gone from me" (all this is from the classic King James Version). Near the end of the movie as the Nebuchadnezzar explodes as a result of the sentinels' bomb, Morpheus says "I have dreamed a dream, and now that dream has gone from me."

In the highway chase scene, all of the signs on the road happen to be cheat codes for the video game, Enter the Matrix.

Trinity uses a real hacking engine to hack into the Matrix. She uses Nmap version 2.5BETA25 to find a vulnerable SSH server and then exploits the weakness using the SSH1 CRC32. If that means anything to anyone.

Near the beginning of the film, Agent Smith drives up in an Audi with the license plate "IS 5416". This appears to be yet another Bible reference--Isaiah 54:16--reads as follows (from the King James Version): "Behold, I have created the SMITH that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy." (Capitals are for emphasis).

The visual effects coordinator, who supervised the following shot, explained. Trinity falls out of the power station window, while firing at one agent, who dives out after her. He explained that the shot was done with Carrie Anne Moss sitting in a chair, with her legs stretched out in gynecologist stirrups. A camera on a track ran past and around her, shooting at high speed (so it could be slowed down to 24 fps). The sequence took over 200 shots to complete and was one of the longest non-CGI sequences of the film.

The film's cinematographer, Bill Pope, makes an appearance as the 'sleeping security guard', at the power plant.

When Neo meets the Oracle she is feeding crows. The number of crows corresponds to a prediction for the future (appropriately enough). She is feeding 5 crows, the symbol of sickness (of the matrix or humanity perhaps). More crows arrive with Smith and 6 or more is a portent of death.

Keanu Reeves bought Harley Davidsons for all the stuntmen in the "Burly Brawl".

It may interest any of the fans of Reloaded's female stars to know that, if played correctly, and because it follows the films' sub-plot, the Enter the Matrix game contains a cut scene with a rather steamy kiss between Niobe and Persephone.

In the Merovingian's restaurant most of the walls are made of square pieces of glass. Many of the glass squares are images of the vertical falling Matrix code.

Towards the end of the movie when Trinity is actually going into the matrix on the motorcycle to help turn off the emergency power systems, it appears that the licence plate on her motorcycle said PS352. If you look in Psalms 35:2 (New International Version), it says, "Take up shield and buckler; arise and come to my aid." This could be alluding to how, though he doesn't know it, Neo needs Trinity's help in turning off the emergency power systems so he can reach the door that the keymaker is taking him to, that ultimately leads to the architect.

101 is also the number of the floor where the three have lunch with the crazy French dude.

RTR

When Neo is taken by the agents for interrogation in the first movie, we can see a shot of him in the interrogation room from an array of television sets, which zoom in. That's the same array of television sets from the Architect's room.

If you listen to the Hundred Smiths fight scene, the sound effects used then Neo uses a Smith to knock down other Smiths are sometimes quite comical. At one point, they use the sound of dominoes falling. In another, they use the sound of a bowling ball making a strike.

Carrie-Anne Moss actually broke her leg during training for the Matrix Reloaded & Revolutions. Not wanting to miss out on working on the movie, she fell into denial about breaking it. She drove home and returned the next day before accepting treatment. By that time, her knee had swollen to twice the size. Even when out of action, she was present at training to give her colleagues encouragement. However Carrie-Anne got no sympathy from Keanu Reeves, saying "Everytime I sat down, he would call me lazy. He drove me crazy!".

When Neo, Trinity and Morpheus arrive at the Merovingian's restaurant, the camera pans left oddly from the main table to show a man walking away, looking over his shoulder at Neo. This man is the father of Seti from Revolutions. Kind of interesting, since in Revolutions, the father mentions his meeting with the Merovingian.

The actor who plays Cas is the real-life wife of Laurence Fishburne, Gina Torres.

When Neo is meeting the Oracle, as well as when he's fighting the Agent Smiths right after, there are a bunch of words spray-painted on the fence, walls and bench, two of which are "one", spelled upside-down and backwards, and "role", which has to do with everyone having a role, or purpose, to play in and/or outside of the Matrix.

Quotes

Agent Smith: Surprised to see me?
Neo: No.
Agent Smith: Then you're aware of it.
Neo: Of what?
Agent Smith: Our connection. I don't fully understand how it happened, perhaps some part of you imprinted on to me, something overwritten or copied, it is at this point irrelevant. What matters is whatever happened, happened for a reason.
Neo: And what reason is that?
Agent Smith: I killed you Mr. Anderson, I watched you die, with a certain satisfaction I might add. And then something happened. Something that I knew was impossible but it happened anyway. You destroyed me Mr. Anderson. Afterward, I knew the rules, I understood what I was supposed to do, but I didn't. I couldn't. I was compelled to stay, compelled to disobey. And now here I stand because of you Mr. Anderson, because of you, I am no longer an Agent of this system, because of you I've changed, I'm unplugged, a new man so to speak. Like you, apparently, free.
Neo: Congratulations.
Agent Smith: Thank you. But, as you well know appearances can be decieving, which brings me back to the reason why we're here. We are not here because we're free, we're here because we are not free. There is no escaping reason, no denying purpose, because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist.
Multiple Smiths: It is purpose that created us. Purpose that connects us. Purpose that pulls us, that guides us, that drive us. It is purpose that defines, purpose that binds us.
Agent Smith: We are here because of you Mr. Anderson. We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us. Purpose.

Mistakes

During the scene where Neo is talking to Agent Smith in the park area where Neo was talking to the Oracle, there is a close-up on Agent Smith's face. In his sunglasses you can see a bright white screen to reflect the light onto the faces of the actors. This isn't visible in any non-reflected angles. You can also see the cameraman on the other side.
