Corrected entry: When Neo throws up blood in the Matrix during the fight scene between him and Agent Smith, Neo also coughs up blood in the real world. Trinity says something like "He's killing him." and tears a piece of her shirt off to wipe away the blood on his mouth. Look carefully at Neo's mouth while she is doing this. Funny how there's no blood there.
Corrected entry: When Neo comes back to life after being shot by Smith he stands up and is shot at by the agents, the bullets are only 9mm Parabellum and not .50AE, .44, or .357 which are the only calibers that Desert Eagles take. (Those being the agents' guns.) (02:05:05)
Corrected entry: When Neo surprises Cypher, he can't read the code, and Cypher says "I don't even see the code any more" indicating that he took time to learn it. Since they can download vast amounts of information (combat techniques, chopper piloting, ...) directly into the brain, why don't they make a disk to learn the Matrix code?
Corrected entry: Just after Neo puts his glasses on at the end there are several shots from above. If you look closely (pausing of DVD probably best) you see that the shadows change drastically in the last high up shot. The street corner has many shadows in the first couple of shots then in the first high up shot the whole street is in sunlight with no shadows anywhere. (02:03:50)
Corrected entry: When Morpheus and Neo is in the "Agent Training Program", they were walking in a crowded city. Notice that you will see that almost every pedestrians walking in the street show up twice. This is obvious when the agent pulls out his gun and the scene paused. You will see the same person with bald head just below Neo.
Corrected entry: During the scene with Neo firing the mini-gun you can see both the empty cases and the disintegrating chain for holding the bullets falling down in the shot from behind his feet. However, when the shot changes to under the helicopter, none of the dark grey links are falling, only the cases. (01:44:00)
Corrected entry: When Neo and Trinity rescue Morpheus there is a massive amount of water coming out of the window. Surely if the window wasn't blown out the water would just flood the level if there was actually a fire. There is way too much water to be there from the time when the sprinklers started to when Morpheus jumps out.
Corrected entry: When they are discovered in the wet wall why not just slide down then? As they are attempting a getaway this would be the way to do it and as they've been discovered they don't need to be quiet anymore.
Corrected entry: When the silver substance from the mirror begins to creep up Neo's arm as he's preparing to be "awakened," it's moving at a controlled, regular speed. Once it goes underneath his shirt it speeds upif you compare it to the normal rate the stuff is moving you'll see it should have taken more than a secondbut is back to normal when you next see it going up his neck
Corrected entry: How can Cypher be in the matrix making the deal with agent Smith if the Nebuchadnezzar is in hiding from the sentinels and out of "broadcast depth" as Morpheus says in the next scene when they're all eating in the room. That's when Morpheus tells Dozer to bring the Nebuchadnezzar back to broadcast depth to go see the Oracle after Cypher makes the deal. I doubt Cypher could drive the ship without everyone waking up.
Corrected entry: How can people possibly know what they look like (their 'residual self image') if they have never actually opened their eyes? It must be a pretty big coincidence that each of the characters look identical in both the Matrix and the real world.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, Neo gets shot in the chest and blood splatters on the wall behind him, but no bullet holes appear on the wall. If the bullets are going through him, there would be bullet holes on the wall. If not, then blood should not be spraying out his back. (01:57:40)
Corrected entry: When Neo and Trinity are on top of the lift, Neo shoots the cable so it will fall down and blow up, and both of them would be lifted up by the counterweight which normally supports the lift. Lifts have brakes so that they can't fall, even if the support wire's cut. Neo only shoots the cable, he doesn't break the brakes, so why does the lift fall? (01:40:50)
Corrected entry: In the Oracle's apartment, when the child picks up the spoon, the convex side is facing Neo. As he hands the spoon over, the concave side of the spoon is facing Neo. (01:11:34)
