Continuity mistake: When Neo finds himself lost outside the castle in the mountains, he calls Link with the cellphone. He then closes the phone panel and the cellphone disappears on the next shot. (01:22:35)

Continuity mistake: In the fight scene between Seraph and Neo, items on the tables are constantly being knocked off and reappearing. In the first long shot, where Seraph and Neo jump from the rightmost table to the one adjacent, a bottle is knocked off, and then reappears. Almost immediately after, during an overhead shot, Seraph knocks one of the flat ashtray-like containers off the table. He moves back, obscuring the place where it was. When he moves forward again, it's back on the table.

Continuity mistake: DVD: In the 100 Smiths brawl, Neo dives backwards about four feet from the ground and a Smith dives at him from the ground to Neo's left. The following shot shows both of them at about twenty feet in the air and it looks like they are descending from the fourth floor of the building in the background.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neo converses with the Oracle, there is the shot where Seraph reminds the Oracle that they should leave. Now you see that when the Oracle gets up, Seraph starts checking the area in front of the bench, looking away from Neo and the Oracle. But in the next shot with all three of them in frame, he is looking directly at Neo while the Oracle moves forward to pat Neo in the stomach. (00:50:25)

Continuity mistake: After one of the agents rips the roof off the car on the expressway, there are some shots that show the interior of the vehicle still dark as if the roof were still intact.

Continuity mistake: The wound and the sleeve of the jacket on Trinity's arm changes after she's cut by one of the twins. When she's cut, the wound and rip in the jacket are thin and diagonal. As Morpheus is calling Link, the wound is not really visible and the cut in the jacket is now larger and squarer, and has changed direction on her arm. (01:21:00 - 01:22:50)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Trinity, Morpheus, and the Keymaker are standing on the bridge, Morpheus says "Trinity, get him out of here." Trinity then grabs the Keymaker and they both jump off of the bridge onto a truck. Then, when the car the twins are riding is heading toward Morpheus, you can see that there are guard rails on both sides of the bridge, however, next when Morpheus cuts the tires on the car the twins are riding with his Katana, the camera cuts a side shot of the bridge, and one side of the guard rails on the bridge has mysteriously disappeared. (01:29:30)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the freeway chase scene when the agent gets out of the police car, there is a far away shot, and if you look at the bridge behind there is a white van that changes positions on the bridge during shots. (01:23:35)


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Link unplugs Morpheus from the Matrix there is a close-up of Link with Morpheus opening his eyes at the bottom of the screen. In the following two shot, Morpheus still has his eyes closed and opens them up moments after he had already has awakened.

Continuity mistake: During the freeway scene, the Twin shoots a black car directly in front of Trinity's car. He shoots on the hood and then a trail of holes are seen going up the windshield. The next shot is one from inside Trinity's car between Trinity and Morpheus, but no bullet holes are in the car ahead.

Continuity mistake: DVD version. In the 100 Smiths scene, a woman enters the courtyard and drops a shopping bag. The first shot shows two tomatoes falling out, one hurtling toward the camera out of the shot and a small box falling out of the bag. In the next shot of the ground, you can see several tomatoes and the box is back in the bag. (00:52:55)

Continuity mistake: During the freeway chase, when the car is crushed by the agent, look closely and you'll see a white Monte Carlo land on top of a mini-van. About 30 seconds later you see the same thing, but up close.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase during a few scenes, the number plates on the truck, Trinity's car and the police cars seem to have no registration numbers.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Agent Smith approaches the metal door. On the wall to one side is the writing "Muz 25", on the other side a wire ends in a light switch. After the fight, Neo kneels in preparation for flight and the light switch has vanished. (00:08:10 - 00:10:45)


Continuity mistake: When the Keymaker opens the door inside the white corridor near the end, you see in the reflection on the doorknob and it shows the corridor, but it does not have any doors in the reflection and there is a white door behind the Keymaker, which you cannot see otherwise when you look in that direction.

Continuity mistake: When the operator on the Vigilant is impaled, at first the bar seems to be coming out of his chest horizontally. When they show him again later as the ship explodes it seems to be pointing much higher up.


Continuity mistake: When Neo is fighting the three agents at the beginning of the film, the ground is really dirty but when he flies off, there's only some papers and the ground is dirty again after that.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Trinity is driving on the freeway, you can see from the interior shot that her door is locked. In the exterior shot you can see her door is unlocked. This is consistent all the way through the driving sequence.

Continuity mistake: In the middle of the freeway chase scene when Morpheus is on the overpass, in one shot the twins SUV has already made it round the bend of the overpass. The following shot they are going around the bend again. (01:25:40)

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.

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."

Question: Whatever happened to the Twins that work for the Frenchman? They do not appear at all in "Revolutions," or at least not as major characters.

Answer: Well, they get defeated. They probably weren't killed, as they reverted to Ghost form (and were still alive when they did it, as they were screaming) which would repair any damage they sustained, but i can't imagine them being willing to go back to the French guy, if he's as powerful as he's made out to be. They're probably just in hiding somewhere.
