Continuity mistake: When Morpheus fights Neo in the training program, Neo is pushed backwards and slides along the floor. In the close-up, his head stops level with one of the black stripes on the floor, so that his eyes are looking at it. In the wide shot in which Morpheus jumps in slow motion through the air, Neo's head is past the line so that it is level with his chest, as if he has slid forward further, despite having stopped previously. In the close-up, the line is again level with his eyes, but when we see Morpheus' knees crashing into the floor, Neo has again moved forwards such that his head is no longer level with the line. (00:50:45)
Continuity mistake: When Morpheus shows Neo the agent training simulation, the girl in red turns into an agent. When they pause the simulation you can see the reflection of Neo with a gun pointed at his head in Morpheus' glasses. When you look in one shot there is a visible white line/mark (scenery?) between the gun and Neo, in the next shot it is gone and then right at the end in the final shot it's back again.
Continuity mistake: When cops are in the room with Trinity at the beginning, just before she attacks the first cop, the chair she sat in is really close to the table, yet when she is in the air its a lot further away from the table. Also, the cop holds in his left hand a torch, which disappears when Trinity goes up for the kick. (00:02:50)The-Immortal
Continuity mistake: During the rooftop scene check out the tiling situation. When Neo takes two bullets, he falls to the ground. He lies mainly inside one tile, even the left gun fits in. (And it's on a vertical line) His top hand lies just on the line. Now, watch again when the agent is dead. All of the sudden he's in-between two tiles, and the gun is now on a horizontal line, but not a vertical. (01:46:36)
Continuity mistake: When Agent Smith is seen the first time, he is talking to the old cop outside, then begins to walk away and the other agent follows. The cop turns his head to continue to look at the other agent when he is walking away or past him, yet in the following shot the cop has his head turned, but the other agent is still in sight and is just barely walking past him.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, when Neo is having the conversation with his boss about his arrival time at the office, when the camera is on Neo, his hands are behind his back, when the is on his boss (showing Neo's back), Neo's hands are in front of him. They're all instant cuts - no time for him to move. (00:11:35)
Continuity mistake: After the helicopter smashes into the building and Neo saves Trinity, they look at each other and you can see smoke from the building. After that, Morpheus is talking to Neo. You can see several shots of him and Neo talking and behind them, the building and its windows are still intact. (01:46:50)
Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film when Morpheus directs Tank to load the Jump Program note where Morpheus and Neo land on roof of building. Aerial view shows them landing some distance from the building but when the camera cuts to the first close up they are standing right next to the building. (00:51:30)The-Immortal
Continuity mistake: When on the roof, Neo fires at the enemy agent, who dodges all his bullets, but the windows of the building behind him are undamaged. (01:45:36)
Continuity mistake: During the fight scene in the train station between Agent Smith and Neo, after a lot of fighting Neo is thrown back and throws up blood. He then gets up and wipes it off with the back of his hand. Straight after that, it isn't visible anymore. It's completely vanished. (01:56:30)
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film we see Neo in the chopper firing the mini gun through the window at the agents. In one particular shot note the metal chair pulled out from the desk which falls over after being shot at, then a few shots later is suddenly back upright again. (01:43:30)The-Immortal
Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film when we see Morpheus and Neo have entered the Matrix in a scene that begins at a city intersection with a "Walk/Don't Walk" Traffic Sign. Just as the cross the street, Morpheus is speaking to Neo, the next shot looks over Neo's shoulder back towards the intersection, it is no longer visible, as though they have traveled farther down the block than physically possible in the time allotted.
