The Matrix

Corrected entry: When Trinity removes the bug from Neo, you can see that the bug is still in its "activated" form and that it is covered in flesh and blood. Trinity immediately throws the bug out the window - the bug is now in its "deactivated" mode and completely clean. (00:24:51)

Correction: The bug only seems to be "alive" to Neo, but is in fact steel and glass. The Matrix makes him see it as a living creature, but once it is out of his sight and out onto the pavement, the bug takes its true form - steel and glass.

Corrected entry: We see Agent Smith shoot at the phone booth to destroy the handset just as Trinity left the Matrix. During the fight scene with Agent Smith, you catch a glimps of the phone booth glass, and it is intact.

Correction: The only clear shot we get of the phone booth is just before Neo's running/jumping multi-kick to Smith's chest, and there's a clear bullet hole through the glass.

Corrected entry: During the shooting scene in the federal building, the camera cuts to a view right behind some guards legs. Neo comes cartwheeling around a pillar and starts shooting. If you slow it down, one of the guards starts falling as if he was shot before Neo even starts shooting at them.

Correction: Before the gun comes into shot, there's a flash offscreen - we can assume he's firing almost as soon as he grabs the gun.

Corrected entry: Tank brings up a schematic on a computer screen that says "eleventh floor," but the Agents trace Morpheus' call and say that they are on the eighth floor.

Correction: Tank's looking for information about the building and is trying to find the 'main wet wall' as Morpheus has asked. As this wall runs up the entire building it's immaterial which level's floor plan he looks at to get the information.

Corrected entry: If an Agent can be anyone still attatched to the Matrix, why do they always appear as the same individuals? Why not just take on the form of someone else and sneak on their prey?

Correction: There's no point as they can be detected as agents regardless of their "digital self". In the opening scene Trinity asks Morpheus if there are any agents, he replies "Yes."

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo is going to open the door to enter the Oracle's house, you can clearly see a camera on the doorknob. There's a sheet over it painted to look like the wall behind it, with a representation of Morpheus' tie too, because he's blocked by the camera. (01:07:40)

Morpheus: You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
