Corrected entry: A real power station in Sydney (the White Bay Power Station) was blown up for the - what else - power-station-blowing-up scene. It was slated for demolition anyway and the film makers requested that they organise it and film it. A lot of people got quite excited about it and turned out to watch it all happen, but in the end it was a bit of a let-down - it's obviously been enhanced for the film.STP
Corrected entry: When Neo meets the Architect, the Architect mentions that the matrix was created 6 times. The first two were disasters, and a solution was found by the oracle for the 3rd version. That means the 3rd version would allow "The One" and a "Zion" to exist; this meant that "Zion" was created 4 times (3rd, 4th, 5th version, and current). The architect mentioned that it will be the 6th time they destroyed it.sksallaj
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo has his talk with the Architect you can see scenes from the original Matrix on the TV screens that cover the wall.
Corrected entry: During the scene in the 100 Agents fight, Neo has a pole which you can hear whistling in the air. However, this is only possible if the pole is open and hollow, which is not the case. Both ends of the pole are closed (best seen in the shot after the agent hurled into the air lands) and the flexibility (best seen when Neo kicks the pole into an agent) suggests that it is a solid stick.Henkie36
Corrected entry: The twins are a reference to Alice in Wonderland's twins Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, someone mentions that the door to the 'Source' is on a floor of the building that cannot be reached by elevator or stairs. Yet when Trinity decides to go into the Matrix, Link tells her to go to the 65th floor. How would she be able to get there without elevator or stairs?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the keymaker gets shot after trying to escape all the Smiths in the hallway, he is shown to have at least 4 bullet holes in his chest. When he is speaking his dying words to Neo and Morpheus he is breathing deep and clear, this would be impossible without choking up all the blood in his lungs.geoffrey schick 1
Corrected entry: When Trinity is turning off the power for the city blocks at the end, she types in "Disable nodes 21-48". No problems here, but when the computer is doing that, you see the computer turn off the nodes or city blocks one after the other. The last shot on the computer shows, though, that node 48 turns is disabled so the process is complete, but then, Trinity says "Come on....please" as she is kind of praying that it turns off in time. It has already turned off. After that, it shows that the lights turn off at least 5 seconds after the computer has disabled them.
Corrected entry: In the highway, when the agent in the police car jumps to another car and flips it over, the wheels keep turning, then there's a quick slow motion and we see the wheels completely motionless, and in the next scene the car is again flying and the wheels are turning around.
Corrected entry: This is another one of those Matrix/Bible parallels. There is a Bible passage that says that disiples are to "set their faces like flint", or show no reaction to, the evils of the world. In other words, they are not to give in to temptations. The connection is that in all of the movies, none of the heroes smile or make many expressions while in the Matrix.
Corrected entry: During the 'burly brawl' scene you can see at certain points that the 'metal' bar bends most noticeably when Neo kicks the bar at agent smith and it rebounds of agent smith.
Corrected entry: in the conclusion of the freeway chase, the Cadillac CTS's gas door cap takes a bullet (look closely), yet the car does not explode.
Corrected entry: In the first Matrix, the characters barely escape the agents with their lives, including Morph who ends up getting captured. The rule is, "You see an agent, you run". Neo is the only one who can defeat them. How is it, then, that in "Reloaded", in spite of the fact that Neo notes the agents are "upgrades", everyone seems more than capable of holding their own against the agents?
Corrected entry: When Trinity jumps out of the window and an agent is chasing her, she gets a few severe glass cuts. Once she is resurrected and back in reality, though, her face seems to be just fine. It was stated in the first movie that every wound you get in Matrix is going to appear on your physical body, too.Grigory the Wanderer
Corrected entry: As Neo, Morpheus, and Keymaker are walking down the white hallway of doors, they encounter Agent Smith who says "Sorry, Dead end". The hallway fills with hundreds of Agent Smiths, and the Keymaker has the empty hallway behind him. The Keymaker turns 180 degrees to run away, but there is still empty hallway behind him. Neo, Morpheus and the Smiths have all disappeared.
Corrected entry: In one scene we see Persephone reapplying her nude/pale pink coloured lipstick while she is in the men's room, talking to the crew. In the next shot, she has a different colour lipstick on all of a sudden. Instead of her lips being nude/pink-colored, they are now lined with a darker colour and not filled in with lipstick.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Link is talking to his wife, the way that his dreadlocks hang over his shoulder changes between shots.
Corrected entry: None of the traffic seems affected by the car crashes that occurred during the chase. It is continuously flowing.
Corrected entry: When Neo flies away from the Hundred Smiths, we see the Smiths watch and start to wander their separate ways but if you watch the Smiths as they walk off (except for the last three) their hair changes from Smith's style to the style of the stuntmen used for the sequence.
Corrected entry: Niobe says that the machines are digging at about 100 meters per hour, their current depth is 2000 meters, and they will reach Zion in 72 hours. This puts Zion at a depth of 9800 meters, or 9.8 kilometers. In the Final Flight of the Osiris in the Animatrix, Zion's depth is given at 4 kilometers.
Corrected entry: In the freeway scene, during the part with one of the twins in the back of the car fighting Morpheus, one shot shows the twin putting a knife against the keymakers throat. If you look out of the rear window, you will see a white van. Then there is a quick shot of Trinity. When the camera cuts back to the twin and the keymaker, the white van is gone and is replaced by a black van.
Corrected entry: During the chase scene on the freeway, the Agent driving the police cruiser empties a magazine into the Cadillac that Trinity is driving. You can see the bullet holes being punched into the car door. Two or three holes are seen hitting in line with Trinity's chest. The Agent weapon of choice is the Desert Eagle .50 AE which would have went through the door, through Trinity, and into Morpheus, if not through him. Yet, the holes appear and she keeps on going.
Corrected entry: When one of the twins has his arm through the door to the car park and the other twin is coming up out of the floor, the other twin flies through the door you can look through him and see that the door is shut and the twin is standing at the closed door without his arm in the door.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo removes the bullet from Trinity's abdomen, the deformation patterns on the bullet are inconsistent with a body impact; the bullet has simply crumpled like an accordion, rather than expand as that particular round is designed to do in a hydrostatic environment.
Corrected entry: When Trinity and the keymaker are about to jump off the overpass you see almost the end of the second half emerge from under the overpass as they jump. By the time they should have landed on the trailer it would have been at least 20 feet down the road but they land at the front of the second half.EMTurbo
Corrected entry: Near the end of the Burly Brawl, Neo leans right back and swings the pole around himself. The top down view of this shows the Smiths come right in close to Neo but in the next slow-mo shot of the Smith jumping up high the Smiths are much further away from Neo.
Corrected entry: When the Nebuchadnezzar is arriving at Zion at the beginning of the film they are just about to go through the gate. Here, Link's face illuminates from the light inside Zion but in the next shot the gate is only now opening.
Corrected entry: In the fight scene between Neo and the Merovingians, Neo stabs one of the guys in the gut and he breaks the railing and falls off the balcony. Neo jumps down immediately after him, and you can see a large part of broken cement pass through Neo's foot unhindered.
Corrected entry: When the neb is coming into Zion, you don't see anyone at the direct base of the gate, you see someone closer to the center of the loading dock. When the gates close, you see a person in a giant mechanical suit and he slowly turns around, and slowly takes a few steps. There would not be enough time for that to get to the base of the gate.
Corrected entry: In the first Matrix movie, the phones they use are Nokia 8910 I think, well whatever they were, in this movie they changed to the Samsung ones, maybe because Samsung sponsored Reloaded?
Corrected entry: In the freeway scene when the agent jumps on the car which then flips over. If you loo carefully you see there is no driver.
Corrected entry: When Neo is talking to the Oracle in the bench, the Oracle puts on her glove in her left hand just before Seraph says 'We must go'. In the following close-up shot, when she stands up, we can see for an instant her left hand without a glove.
Corrected entry: During the Highway Chase scene, several Agents refer to The Keymaker as an exile and try to delete/destroy him. But The Keymaker still has a purpose, to lead Neo to The Architect and The Mainframe so the code Neo carries can be reinserted to save the entire Matrix from a cataclysmic system failure. So why are The Agents (the very programs who are trying to protect The Matrix) following actions that ultimately would lead to its destruction?
Corrected entry: In the scene on top of the truck, when Trinity is starting the motorcycle, she says to the Keymaker to "hop on". But when she starts the bike, a shot is shown of her legs and the lower part of the Ducati. Only one pair of legs ... Note that the wheels are already spinning, so it would have been impossible for the Keymaker to take a seat on the bike at a later point in time.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the Chateau battle, Neo stabs the ponytail thug with a sword and kicks him off the balcony. Neo steals the thug's spear & jumps downstairs as the remaining henchmen follow. The Asian thug then breaks the spear in half with his spiked club. When Neo beats the henchmen with the 2 halves, the spearhead has disappeared.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Smith copies himself into his first body and enters the telephone afterwards, the first person to go through that telephone is holding something in an envelop and says that its really important. He then gives it to Neo, and Neo knows he has to go meet the oracle. How is it possible to transfer an object from the purely fictional matrix, to the "real" world?
Corrected entry: When Trinity hacks the computer system, the program displays "exploiting SSHv1 CRC32". This is the name of a security bug which exists in the real world. But this in-joke backfires because the bug has also already been fixed in the real world; there is no way the exploit would still work in the time of the Matrix.Moose
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo fights three agents intruding Captain's meeting he is flipping around a pole and kicking the big bad guy. However, the agent's body begins twitching in the air well before the kick is actually delivered.
Corrected entry: In the car chase on the freeway, we see a car flipping over, complete with lots of broken glass etc - however the glass is going upwards with the car, as if it was recorded in the opposite direction and played back in the film in reverse, making the shot look slightly odd.
Corrected entry: After the Keymaker is shot, he is shown turning around with little or no blood above his apron, but the next shot has his shirt soaking with blood around the holes in his shirt.
Corrected entry: During the Château fight, Neo hits the bad guys several times with the butt-end of his sai daggers. Wouldn't this fight go a lot quicker if he used the pointy ends?
Corrected entry: In the chase scene Morpheus and Trinity are desperately trying to get to an exit that Link has set up for them, and they are also trying to keep the Keymaker safe. But these goals are not consistent with each other. When they get to the exit they are going to have to leave the Keymaker (a program) sitting on the highway by himself, which would defeat the purpose of rescuing him.
Corrected entry: This happens during the scene when Morpheus cuts "The Twins" car with a sword, and shoots it. Watch how close Morpheus is to the car when he shoots, then when it explodes look around on the ground. There is a wide angle camera shot, and Morpheus is not there any more, even though he was about 10 feet from the car. Then when the shot goes to a higher angle, Morpheus reappears. He also looks transparent and 2D in some of the higher shots of the road.Terri Engblom
Corrected entry: In the first movie, when agents are killed, they revert back to the form of the person that they stole their body off. Throughout Reloaded, especially in the first fight scene (Upgrades), when agents are killed, they stay in their 'agent form'
Corrected entry: The Keymaker gets shot by some 5 Desert Eagle bullets, a weak guy like the Keymaker (even in the Matrix) would have either exploded or flown three feet back. His insides would have been all over the floor.
Corrected entry: This refers to the freeway chase scene where one of the Twins "flies" into the car and starts fighting with Morpheus. During the fight Morpheus twists a seatbelt around the Twin's arm to immobilize it and put him at a disadvantage. Shortly after that the Twin uses a knife blade to cut the seatbelt in order to free his arm. But the Twins can both pass through solid objects like ghosts, so why wouldn't the Twin simply make his arm "dissipate" through the seatbelt instead of going through all the trouble of cutting it with the blade?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo catches Trinity, Trinity is falling from a building with her feet pointing towards the building. Neo should catch her with her feet pointing to his left side, but when he puts her down on a nearby roof top, her feet are pointing to his right side. I can't remember seeing him flip her around in mid-air.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo fights all the Smiths with the pole, he jumps up in the air and impales a Smith with the pole on the ground. When he lands he gets punched back and then runs horizontally in a circle on the Smiths, using the pole as post to hold. If you watch closely, you will notice that the pole disappears when he gets punched, only to reappear right before he runs around with it.
Corrected entry: Part way through the "100 Agent Smiths" scene, Neo is just about to kick one of the Smiths. However, if you look closely, the Smith rises up vertically into the air long before Neo even lifts his head. Its only when Neo kicks him that he flies backwards out of shot. Bad wire work.Phoebe
Corrected entry: In the scene where Morpheus is fighting the agent on top of the semi, Morpheus is about to fall off the side when he reaches out to grab the agent's tie. When he grabs it, the agent tries his best to hold on to the tie to keep himself from falling off the truck and thus saving Morpheus. The agent should have just fallen off the truck to kill Morpheus and sacrifice himself, since agents are programs which can die and still take over another body.
Corrected entry: If the Keymaker is "meant" for all intents and purposes for deletion, and if "The One" is a never ending circle, ALWAYS meant to go to the source - how is The One supposed to get to the Source without the Keymaker? The deletion of the Keymaker would end the cycle, causing the machines to be left without human power, or would allow Zion to grow out of control.Phoebe
Corrected entry: If only Seriph or the keymaker can open the "back doors" to the Matrix, with the special keys - why, and more importantly, how can the many Agent Smiths come through any and every available door at the end of the film? They need the right key to turn the locks. Every one of those Agents couldn't possibly have a key.Phoebe
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo is fighting the French guy's henchmen, at the end of the fight Neo stabs one of the guys with a sword. But if you look closely, the sword is actually not penetrating him at all. It is actually going under his arm.
Corrected entry: Morpheus leans down from the side of the truck and plunges the katana into it. Later in the scene he climbs down onto it, and his head is almost at the top of the truck, he could never have plunged it in that far down. Even later he is able to pull it out again when he leans off the side.
Corrected entry: In the highway scene where Morpheus stands in between the two trucks, the katana is on the left truck. When he catches the keymaker, he throws him onto the truck on the right and then fights an agent on the same truck, but when he is hanging on the side of the truck the katana magically appears.
Corrected entry: In the freeway scene, when they are coming out from behind the truck, the shot-out tire is inflated then deflated again.
Corrected entry: When neo is talking to the Council member because they both can't sleep, the Council member mentions that he doesn't like sleep, and has been sleeping for 11 years so he figures he'd make up for the lost time, this would mean that he was plugged in. But there is no plug in the back of his head, and its not in his hair.
Corrected entry: During the freeway chase sequence, Morpheus is fighting against an Agent on the top of a truck. Morpheus wards him off pretty well considering that he got his guts kicked out by Agent Smith in the first movie. Quite a progress in contrast to Trinity who while fighting against an Agent in the skyscraper gets herself thrown around like a doll and even takes a bullet in the belly. It's never explained why Morpheus has suddenly become so powerful.
Corrected entry: At the end of The Matrix, Neo puts on his sunglasses and looks up. He then just flies. In The Matrix Reloaded, he always crouches as if he is about to start speed skating and causes the ground to ripple around him, whereby he then jumps and does his "Superman" thing (as Link puts it).unkajes
Corrected entry: In the freeway chase where the agent jumps on the front of the car causing it to flip once he jumps off, we see a shot of the car landing on its roof and there is no one in the car.
Corrected entry: In the freeway chase scene one of the twins is shooting at the Cadillac to his left. They are separated by one lane and the twin has a clear shot. Both cars then pull up to another car traveling in the middle lane and the twin's shot is blocked by this tan SUV. The twin decides to shot through the tan SUV and you see blood sprayed on the windshield. In the next shot you see all three cars from the front and the tan SUV flips over forward. There is now no blood on the SUV's front windshield.
Corrected entry: During the entire time that Trinity and Morpheus are being shot at by the twin in the car, we never see him reload his gun, despite the fact that he fires about 350 shots at them from one clip. It can't be due to them being able to bend the rules of the matrix, as eventually he runs out of ammo, looks at the gun in disgust and ditches it.
Corrected entry: Right after the explosion with which Morpheus finishes off the Twins,Trinity voices concern over Morpheus' well being by calling his name. But Link replies by saying that Morpheus is all right and asks Trinity to keep moving. How were they able to speak to each other without using that all important mobile phone? They weren't already connected, because in the very next shot you see Trinity ring up the operator asking for a download on how to hotwire a motorcycle.
Corrected entry: After Morpheus slices the car the Twins are in, you see the car skidding to a stop. The camera cuts back a fraction before the car actually stops, but it's obviously moving very slowly. However when you see the car in the next shot, it's flipping over. There is no way that its minimal momentum would have flipped the car, cut with a sword or not.
Corrected entry: As in the first film, the Agents are firing .50 caliber Desert Eagles. The Agent in the police car fires several shots that hit the car door right next to Trinity. A shot from a Desert Eagle would not only go through the car door, it would probably go through Trinity and hit Morpheus as well.
Corrected entry: This happens in the scene in which Trinity is about to leap off the window, and she runs across an office while an Agent fires at her. Although the side walls of the office are far away from Trinity, the agent hits a LOT of objects that are close to the wall (desks, cabinets, etc). You can see that on the side shots. Considering the distance of the target and the fact that it's an Agent, this isn't very likely.
Corrected entry: The French guy's henchmen tried to shoot Neo, but he stopped the bullets. The guys were about 3-4 metres from Neo, but the bullets were spread across quite a wide rectangular area in front of him. He doesn't stop them very far away from himself, so why aren't they all bunched really close together?
Corrected entry: A lot of people in Zion wear dirty and/or holey clothes (including Neo, who at one point wears a sweatshirt that's more grey than white). But in the scene where Neo asks Trinity not to go into the Matrix, there is a close-up of their hands and you can notice that both have manicured hands and Trinity has clear nail varnish on. How come they can find nail varnish in Zion when there is not enough washing powder to go around?
Corrected entry: During the part just before the twin gets his arm caught in a door, Trinity and the keymaker are by the door, it cuts to Morpheus picking up a sword, then the twin in front of him solidifies. Trinity and the Keymaker go through the door with Morpheus now right behind them, and close it - Morpheus has somehow got past the twin with no problems and is in the car park with them.
Corrected entry: Isn't it weird that agents can easily dodge full clips of automatic machine guns at point blank range yet they can't dodge slower punches, kicks or katana blades?
Corrected entry: In the highway scene there is a lot of extreme driving occurring, which at many times results in cars crashing. Although these crashes occur many times behind our heroes, there seems to be a plentiful supply of fresh cars coming from behind who managed to dodge the accidents and speed up to catch up to our heroes, just in time to be involved in another accident.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the huge number of agents are fighting against Neo, you can see some of them running through a door. On the first shot, the door opens to the left side. The second shot shows the whole thing from above and the door opens to the right side.
Corrected entry: In the chase scene, one of the cars (perhaps the same one above that's missing the gas tank?) that flips end over end is missing its drive shaft.
Corrected entry: Granted, Zion's population is a mix of people freed from the Matrix and people born outside of it through natural means, but there are a lot of closeups of the dancing humans after Morpheus's speech and I did not see one person with any plugs in their arms, chests, or heads aside from Niobe, Morpheus, Trinity, and Neo.
Corrected entry: In the first scene of the movie, when Trinity launches her motorcycle off the roof of the parking garage, we see her flip off, and land with her left leg folded under her, and her right leg straight out. We they cut back to the wide shot, she is standing up much taller, with both legs spread.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo is fighting the Smith clones, he uses a metal pole to bat Agents away. He hits one agent up and through the window of a nearby building. In shots afterwards, the window is seen intact.
Corrected entry: After Trinity steals the motorcycle and turns back heading into traffic, she passes an exit ramp. The yellow arrow painted on the road points up the ramp. Several police cars drive down this ramp in the opposite direction heading right into traffic themselves. So much for public safety.
Corrected entry: When Agent Smith transforms one of the rebels into another Smith, several times during the movie and the original we see characters reading the screens in the real world and being able to tell that there is an Agent, so presumably the operator could tell that the rebel was transformed into an Agent, so why didn't he hang up so Smith couldn't get out?
Corrected entry: This happens in the scene where Neo fights the Frenchman's henchmen. Together, the henchmen shoot hundreds of bullets at Neo, which he stops with his hand. However, when they begin to fight hand-to-hand the bullets are no longer seen on the floor. The bullets reappear later on in the scene.
Corrected entry: In the hallway right before the Keymaker is shot, there are several close-up shots of Agent Smith as he is talking to Neo. At this time, you can see the camera lens in the reflection of Smith's sunglasses (the camera is really close to Smith's face, so you have to look closely, but it's there).LunaDolphin18
Corrected entry: When Neo is fighting the Smiths with the metal pole in the playground, there is one part where Neo and Smith are holding it and it bends as if it were plastic.
Corrected entry: In the freeway scene, when the 2 agents smash the 2 truck together head on, the trucks crumple like a can, and then the trailers do the same. This would not happen, as the trailers are approx. 4 feet behind the truck. At best they would have some damage to the nose, and then jacknife off to the side.
Corrected entry: In the first movie, when Neo is recovering from being unplugged from the Matrix, there is a scene where they removed all of the metal plugs from his body - except for the last one in the back of his head. In Reloaded, all of the plugs are back.
Corrected entry: Throughout both the Matrix, and Reloaded, we see that it takes at least five seconds or more for a normal person to "transform" into an Agent. Yet on the Freeway chase, one Agent transforms from a human into an agent with his arm stretched out ready to fire in about a second, the time it takes to pass an obstruction.Phoebe
Corrected entry: A lot of people might not agree but watching the big rave / dance scene in Zion just did not seem right to me. 250,000 Sentinals are drilling their way towards the city and will hit their target in less then 72 hours. The humans have nowhere to run. Does this seem like a good time to have a party? Wouldn't it be more prudent to prepare the city's defenses or even be working on more of them? I wouldn't care how motivating Morpheous's speech was, I'd be more worried about the machines then my dance routine.
Corrected entry: When Morpheus is pulling the Keymaker off Trinity's motorcycle and onto the truck, he sticks his sword into the side of the truck and stands on it to reach him. However, he sticks the blade in vertically, so the edge faces the ground. Given that the sword cut easily through the greater part of the Twins' vehicle, shouldn't his weight be enough to force that strong, sharp blade down the side of the truck?
Corrected entry: During the highway chase scene, Trinity and the Keymaker jump from an overpass onto the bed of the tractor-trailer carrying the motorcycles. The shot of their jump shows the truck passing under them, moving considerably faster then they are - however, the next shot shows them landing on their feet squarely and not falling backwards. This would have required them to be moving forward as fast as the truck - to have jumped out from the overpass with a forward velocity equal to the truck's - something that the previous shot shows they did not do.
