The Matrix Revolutions

Corrected entry: When we see Neo walk into the Oracle's kitchen, the Oracle asks the little girl to take them to Seraph, in one particular wide shot of the room by the door there are no flowers or vase, yet when the little girl walks past Neo, flowers and a vase have appeared by the doorway. (00:24:15)


Correction: This is not a mistake. In the wide shot when Sati takes the bowl, at the very border of the screen (right side) we can see one of the legs of the table where the flower pot sits. This is visible in the widescreen version. The distance between the table and the door is not obvious because of perspective.


Corrected entry: Why was the Hammer the only ship capable of blowing the EMP when Zion was overrun? Where were all the other ships of Zion? (01:21:05 - 01:22:30)

Correction: The other ships were either destroyed or being overrun at Zion, where they were called to at the beginning of The Matrix Reloaded so the crews could help with the impending invasion. Only four ships were absent from Zion at the time of the invasion: Nebuchadnezzar (destroyed by Sentinels), Logos (crashed on the way to The Machine City), Vigilant (crew killed within the Matrix) and Mjolnir, nicknamed "The Hammer".

Corrected entry: Neo's "sight/vision" after he has been blinded resembles very much the Daredevil "shadow world" from the Daredevil movie; only in orange and yellow like fire instead of blue and grey like shadow as in DD.


Correction: An extremely vague similarity between special effects in two different films doesn't qualify as trivia.

Corrected entry: If you're planning on staying all the way through the credits to get a nice surprise (like in Reloaded), don't. They are awfully long, and there is no extra at the end of them.

Correction: How could pointing out that nothing happens after the film credits be considered trivia?

Corrected entry: When Neo comes to the Matrix in his final fight with Smith, he sees the Matrix world as the One does (The green coding). At the end, when we see a shot through his eyes looking up at Smith, he sees the way we normally do - without the green coding. (Just by viewing the shot, it is clear that we are meant to be seeing through Neo's eyes).

Correction: First of all, it is never stated that Neo can only view the Matrix as code after becoming the One. Second of all, it is nearly impossible in a movie to see if a shot is through the character's eyes or simply from his point of view.


Corrected entry: In the chase scene, right after the ship makes that 90 degree full power turn, they show the female pilot upside down, but behind her you can see cables dangling from bottom to top in a gravity defying manner. (01:11:10)

Correction: If she is upside down, and the wires are dangling from bottom to top, then this it makes sense. And this mistake is already corrected.

Corrected entry: When 'the kid' is talking to Neo in Zion about joining a crew the 'plug' on Neo's neck is gone.

Correction: This mistake has already been submitted and corrected. The plug is still there; it's black and so is Neo's hair. It's hard to see because of Neo's hair colour but it is there.


Corrected entry: There are many references to the first Matrix movie in this movie: signs on the subway that say "Tastee Wheat", the car that Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity are driving in after Neo is rescued is the same one used to take Neo to the Oracle, even the license plate is the same: AA034. The reflection of him looking out is also identically shot.

Correction: It's not that amazing that a movie refers to an earlier one in the series. Tastee wheat is advertised again, all that means is there is more than one ad for it in the entire world. Neo being driven in the same car also isn't a big deal. They've all probably learned how to drive in that exact make and model, so they just load it again and again into the Matrix whenever they want to drive somewhere.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Agent Smith is talking to the Oracle, she is smoking but no smoke appears when she exhales. (00:33:25)

Correction: This is already better explained in Triva. Also, she is still a program and one no longer operating in the context of pretending to be a human. People know she isn't like anyone else, the lack of smoke is probably part of that.

Corrected entry: Just before the kid shoots at the chains holding the gate, while he's on his side, in one shot, in the foreground you see the arm of the APU moving and the kid is in it, in the background. The APU's and the kid's arm movements don't match. (01:17:20)

Correction: They do actually match, although the APU's arm does lag to what the kids arm is doing because of the Sentinel that's draped over the APU's arm.

Corrected entry: At the train station, the writing that says 'Mobil Avenue' on the wall keeps changing, from from the 3rd row of tiles from the top to the 2nd row from the top.

Correction: There is more than 1 Mobil Avenue sign there, and since it was the same background used without being changed, it couldn't have been changed, must've been either your eyes, the angle, or a different sign.

Corrected entry: This relates to the APUs defending Zion. Okay, I counted at least 60 APUs, during the scene where Mifune does his speech(Twelve rows of five abreast). 60 APUs, two guns per APU, makes 120. Plus, there are guns on the tower in the dock, I counted eight turrets with four barrels apiece, so another 32. Now, just estimating, the hole made by the digger is 5-10 meters across, 20-40 feet. The bullets would have to be depleted uranium 'tank-buster' shells to destroy the sentinels. My problem is this: with the number of bullets being fired into the digger entrance, how did any sentinels actually get through to Zion? I'd think the sheer number of bullets flying, plus all the shrapnel and collisions forming from sentinels being destroyed, none would get through.

Correction: Sheer weight of numbers. The initial entry group would be cut to pieces, but, as time passes and the defending guns need reloading, simple chance dictates that eventually some will get through. Once that occurs, the defending firepower will have to split, as some have to focus on the Sentinels within the dock. It's also probable that the Sentinels within the dock will manage to take out some of the defending guns prior to their own destruction. With less guns and multiple targets to consider, less firepower is trained on the entry hole, allowing more Sentinels through, and the whole thing spirals out of control from there.

Corrected entry: During the scene when Smith has cornered Seraph and Sati, you can see that Smith has had his left ear pierced. (00:32:40)

Correction: Is this a mistake? Why can't an Agent can't have a pierced ear? If Hugo Weaving has pierced ears, they should be pierced throughout the movie(probably all three movies), so this wouldn't be a continuity error. Besides, that could just be the way that Agent Smith was written; the choice to give a program a pierced ear or not would probably be incredibly arbitrary to any program, including the one who wrote Smith.

Corrected entry: In the rain battle scene, where Neo is laying on the soaked ground after crashing into the road, Neo's ear is filled with water, in the next shot, the water is gone. Neo's head hasn't moved between the two shots. (01:48:25)

Correction: His head has moved.

Corrected entry: In the final brawl, near the end when the two are flying above the city, after Smith flies around and hits Neo, the rain dissipates, but when Smith goes to fly Neo into the ground, all the rain that would've gone somewhere else is right there again as they fly toward the pavement. (01:47:30)

Correction: When they collide with each other, they create a huge shock wave that forces rain outward in every direction. After that, you see Smith quickly pose, and the rain starts falling down again.

Corrected entry: In the chase scene, sentinels destroy a number of the Hammer's pods, but just before it reaches the gate, they're all active. (01:18:20 - 01:20:55)

Correction: A number of the Hammer's pods ARE destroyed; however several are still lit, and only a few are lit when they reach the gate.

Corrected entry: When Seraph and Sati encounter the Agent Smiths on the stairway the first time Seraph looks down the agents are empty-handed, when he looks again a fraction of a second later the Smiths now all have their guns drawn. (00:30:35)

Correction: I am pretty sure that when you can move faster than a bullet, you can probably draw out your weapon in a faction of a second.

Corrected entry: When Trinity and Maggie are looking at a computer screen in the medical bay, you can see Ian Bliss' character swallow visibly in the background, even though he is supposed to be in a coma.

Correction: Some people in comas can swallow, some cannot; some people can breathe on their own, some can't.

Corrected entry: In the first movie, we see the sentinels break through the hull of Morpheus' ship in a matter of minutes. However, even though the Logos is covered with them trying to get to Gate 3, not one of them cuts the hull to get at the crew inside, even though some of them have been hanging on the exterior of the ship for quite a while.

Correction: The sentinels don't want to risk setting off the EMP and taking out the numerous sentinels in the area waiting to go into Zion. The sentinels would rather disable it from even getting into Zion and causing more trouble. Also, in the first movie, the ship was still and no one was on the guns shooting. In this movie, there are guns on the ship and more people on the ship to fight off sentinels that can get in.

Corrected entry: When Neo punches Agent Smith during bullet-time the raindrops seem to be "suspended" in the air as if time came to a halt. From what we've seen of bullet-time it merely slows down the shot in order to show it in a 360-degree view; it doesn't stop the action completely. So the raindrops should have still been falling, even if a lot slower.

Correction: It was supposed to show that the punch was very fast, indicating a lot of force behind it, more than a bullet.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neo sees the oracle at her home, as the shots go back and forth during the dialog immediately after she sits down, her cigarette pack goes from closed to slightly open several times, until she takes a cigarette, then it stays slightly open. (00:25:00)

Mifune: If it is our time to die, than it is our time to die. But we'll give them hell before we do!

More quotes from The Matrix Revolutions

Trivia: The way it all unfolds with Neo dying at the end and looking at his weakest throughout the whole movie, is a clear reference of the last days of Jesus Christ, in which he looked his most weak and humble. As a matter of fact, Neo, just like Jesus died to save everyone, he even died with his arms outstretched on a dark summit very similar to Golgotha, the place where Jesus died.

More trivia for The Matrix Revolutions

Question: Given most of the Characters are called by their 'hacker' names in the real world, why is the Captain of the Hammer called Roland? Does this have any biblical/mythical significance?

Answer: I think he could be named after the legendary Roland from European mythology. Roland was Emperor Charlemagne's nephew, I think. He and his friend died fighting off the treacherous Moors, supposedly. Roland was really big in medieval beliefs.
