The Matrix Reloaded mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the freeway scenes, the katana Morpheus used as a foot hold to grab the keymaker keeps moving. It was at arm's length from the top when he inserted it; when Morpheus was standing on it, the sword was a whole body length below the top; when Morpheus took the sword out in his fight against the agent, it was back in its original position.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene, when Trinity is driving the cadillac, the Agent in the cop car slams into the driver's side of Trinity's car and the driver's side mirror is bent inwards. When Trinity drives the cadillac onto the exit ramp, the driver's side mirror is back in its normal position.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase, the twins shoot out most of the windows in the car that Trinity and Morpheus are driving in. But every time they cut to a shot of them inside of the car, the windows are intact and there is no shattered glass to be seen.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase, one of the Twins shoots at a car behind them to get it out of the way - the right side of the windscreen (as we look at it) is peppered with holes. From another angle, they disappear, only to reappear as it swerves away. (01:25:55)

Continuity mistake: In the highway chase scene there is a shot of the police cars before they get onto the highway and the cars are Chevrolet Caprices. When they are on the highway chasing Trinity's car, the police cars become brand new Chevrolet Impalas. But when the police cars start to ram her, they become Caprices again.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: There were 3 police cars; two Impalas and a Caprice. The police car possessed by the agents was always a Caprice from the beginning. One of the Impalas rammed into the black Oldsmobile Intrigue which was shot and flipped by the twins and the other Impala disappears after the massive crash scene (probably crashed within the mayhem).

The Impalas were ahead and the Caprice was behind in the tunnel before the highway. Right after the highway scene (when the CTS Swerves between two trucks) however, you can see 5 cars (one Caprice and three Impalas, and one unknown car ) but after that it's back to 2 Impalas and Caprice. So the mistake is three cars turning into five, not the switch between Caprice and Impala.

Continuity mistake: When Neo and the keeper are fighting on the middle bench, one by one the bowls get knocked off - the two on the far corners (left and right) reappear and disappear at least once. Likewise the pot on the right hand table with stick-like things in - that table's completely cleared at one point, but that pot reappears.

Continuity mistake: During the freeway chase scene the Cadillac gets slammed up against the wall and sparks start shooting from the side to show that the car is being scraped by the wall. However, in several quick shots after we see the car gets scraped against the wall, there are only bullet holes and no trace of scraping against the side of the car. (01:28:30)

Continuity mistake: Further to the comment about some of the Smith clones not having Hugo Weaving's face pasted onto them, just after Neo does his back flip into two agents whilst kicking the two either side of him, just after he turns back around towards the camera, there is a very obvious stuntman standing just behind him who looks absolutely nothing like Agent Smith.

Continuity mistake: When the twin leaves the car that Trinity is driving, he is standing on the freeway by himself. You see a flat-bed truck, then a police car, then a red van pass him by. But when they show the shot ahead of him, the truck is still there, but the cop car and the red van are nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neo fights the Merovingian's henchmen he plunges a sword into one of them and pushes him off the balcony and jumps with him. The body falls near an already dead henchman. In the next shot when the others jump off the balcony the body with the sword is away from the first body. (01:16:00)

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene when the Twin enters the car with Morpheus, Trinity and the keymaker the camera view changes between aerial shots and shots from in the car. In the aerial shots the road behind them is completely empty. From the shots in the car you can see several cars behind them through the windows.

Continuity mistake: In the scene of the freeway chase, where Trinity, Morpheus and the Keymaker are in one car on the right side of the freeway, there's a shot from the car of the Twins (two or three lanes to the left), Trinity's car passes a truck, when the car appears again ahead of the truck there is only the driver inside the car, no passengers.

Continuity mistake: As Morpheus walks away from the wrecked car, the position of his right hand, clenched with index finger pointing straight downwards, would indicate he is gripping his pistol. Yet in the next cut to a view from behind him his right hand is empty. The pacing of the sequence suggest he wouldn't have had time to holster it, yet we see him produce it from behind his back after he has sliced the twins' car. (01:25:40)

Continuity mistake: In the Burly Brawl scene towards the begining there is a birds-eye shot of Neo fighting four Smiths in front of him while moving backwards. He continues moving backwards and is hit. Just before the shot changes he is standing on a drain but when the shot does change he is about 3 feet in front of it. (00:51:40)

Continuity mistake: In the shot taken above the Twin's right arm just before the SUV smashes the trunk off the BMW we see that Trinity's Cadillac already made a left turn and is about 70 feet away. In the shot made from inside the SUV just after hitting the BMW, the Cadillac is still taking the turn and seems stuck on the sidewalk. The SUV is about to pass it to the left. (01:20:10)

Continuity mistake: When Trinity is on the freeway and sees the motorbike truck from the bridge there are several cars either side of the truck travelling at the same speed. When they jump over,the top down view shows no cars and also the following shot from under the bridge shows no cars. (01:29:05)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Neo and the counsellor Hamann are holding a conversation at night before entering the engineering level, you can see Hamman's robe's neck changing from wrinkled to unwrinkled mainly on the back side between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Trinity rides a motorcycle and is being chased by the police, we see the cop cars right behind her, almost nudging her back wheel. From behind her, she dodges a car, which crosses the road line and should stack right into the police car behind it, but escapes miraculously unscathed. (01:27:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neo meets the Oracle before the Burly Brawl, just after Neo looks at Seraph and says "so's he", from behind she is leaning her head on her hand, with her hand by her jaw. Then when we see her from the front (instant cut, no time she's not visible), her hand is against her temple when she says "keep going". (00:43:20)

The Matrix Reloaded mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the freeway chase scene when one of the agents jumps onto the hood of the first car then jumps off, the car flips, then a second later as the car is still flipping you can see the gas tank and transmission have been removed. (01:23:45)

More quotes from The Matrix Reloaded

Trivia: 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."

Chosen answer: Obsolete programs are given the choice of deletion or exile. The Merovingian takes them in and, with his abilities to code the Matrix, allows them to stay under his protection.
