Corrected entry: Cypher alerts the agents to the location of Morpheus' base of operations via cell phone tracing. But since the agents can transport to any body in the Matrix that hasn't been unhooked, and they can trace calls in about 30 seconds as we saw at the start, it would have been easier if they had transported to the nearest bodies, got into the building, killed Mouse, destroyed their equipment and then summon the police. All this they could have done in 5 minutes while everyone was at the Oracle, but instead we get a very long, action packed confrontation.
Corrected entry: To exit the Matrix the character must find a secure phone line with which do so, we see this in the subway when Trinity lifts the receiver and places it to her ear and then zips down the phone. However surely to enter the Matrix the same must be true, so who or how is the receiver on the phone lifted in the Matrix for them to enter?
Corrected entry: Tank explains to Neo and Trinity that the reason the agents took Morpheus is because all captains to the ships are given codes to access Zion's mainframe and if an agent gets into the system it could destroy them. In the Matrix: Reloaded though, the Architect tells Neo "This is the sixth time we have destroyed it and we have become quite exceeding at it." Talking about Zion. If the machines have successfully destroyed it in the past six times, why would the agents need to even get into the computer to destroy them when they would just do it later?icounited
Corrected entry: When Neo is on the rooftop, and the helicopter is crashing, he winds the rope around his arm and as the helicopter goes down, it drags him to the edge of the building which is surrounded by blocks of some kind. Notice, when he hits the blocks, the block under his right foot wobbles showing it's not real.DoctorProcter
Corrected entry: Linked to another mistake about Neo's keyboard switching from a normal keyboard to a MS Natural keyboard, look at the windows key (between the ctrl and alt keys) - it has no Windows logo or writing on it.
Corrected entry: When Neo just enters the apartment room and is shot by Smith, the next shot is when Smith fires the Deagle, but the camera is an overhead shot. You see the casing get ejected straight up into the air. This is not possible as the Deagle and other pistols eject the spent casing upwards and slightly to the right over the user's shoulder.
Corrected entry: Worth noticing if you're a Sydney inhabitant: In the scene where Trinity picks up Neo under the bridge while it is raining, the impression you get is that they drive a fair distance before Neo is asked to make a decision by Switch. Neo opens the car door and the camera shot is of him looking up a dimly lit street. For anyone who knows the city of Sydney you will realise quite quickly that the car has not travelled more than 10 feet because the bridge he was standing under is right next to the street he is looking up.
Corrected entry: After the Agents ram the phone booth and brick wall, the truck reverses out. A brick is visible on the engine. A few shots later, the brick's mysteriously disappeared.
Corrected entry: In the beginning after Neo wakes up next to his computer, and the Guy knocks on his door, when Neo answers the door, a chain is hooked across it. After he gets the money from the guy, he shuts the door and goes to get the disk from inside the book, then goes to back to the door to give it to the guy. He opens the door and the chain is not hooked anymore. You don't hear him take the chain off the door before he opened it, and he didn't take the chain off after he shut it, either.TiggBoy
Corrected entry: Morpheus is tortured, drugged, and shot in the leg. Then he's rescued by Neo dangling from a helicopter and dropped onto a rooftop. After Neo pulls up Trinity from the falling helicopter, the talking scene at the end of all of this has Morpheus reminding Neo that "he IS the one". I know this is picky, but Morpheus is very alert, chipper, and looking way to good after having been tortured, drugged, and shot in the leg just moments ago.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film when Trinity sees the telephone box, there is a large lamp-post that she runs past, yet when you slow it down, she's in line with the post not in front of it from the previous shot, also if you pause it or slow it down, you can actually see that the path she just run down has shortened somewhat.
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the film when we see Trinity kick the chair at a cop, it knocks him back a bit and the chair falls to the ground, yet when the scene cuts to a different cop who is just about to fire upon Trinity if you pause or slow it down you can again see the chair flipping over and heading towards this second cop.
Corrected entry: When Morpheus is showing Neo the construct for the first time they're walking down the street beside a construction site with green cloth covering scaffolding surrounding the building. They walk past an uncovered part that has an ATM and the bank logo is a yellow diamond with the bottom-right part being black. This is the logo for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, nowhere near the USA that the events are supposed to be taking place in.
Corrected entry: When Neo is being lifted from the sewer into the ship by the grappling hook, you can see his right leg quickly move away from the edge of the hatch door just as he is entering the ship.
Corrected entry: If the agents can brick up walls by changing the matrix, like in the house after the visit to the oracle, then why don't they just brick the cast into a room without a phone/exit and leave them to starve to death?
Corrected entry: After Neo "wakes up", a grappling hook picks up Neo after he falls into the sewer. It has a different number of arms going up than going down.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo is arrested and brought out of the building we see a reflection of Neo in the mirror on Trinity's bike. We see the agent's right hand on Neo's arm and his left arm on Neo's shoulder, but in the next cut we see the agent's left hand has dropped to nearly his side and though his right hand is still on Neo's shoulder the agent's arm is touching the shoulder from Neo's side rather that from the rear as in the previous cut.
Corrected entry: At the beginning, the Agents ram into the phone booth and brick wall. All three hop out. When the Agent to the right turns to Smith and says something, the white screen is reflecting off his sunglasses.
Corrected entry: A huge mistake in this movie's rules. Agent Smith pulled out a capsule of liquid that transforms into a tiny sentinel that was inputted into Neo's navel. For Neo to see this tiny robot enter his navel would have been impossible based on the plots rules. If this scene and the scenes where the group in the car ejected the robot from his navel were omitted then the movie would have been completely on track per plot rules. Total mistake on editors and writers. Can you see the implications to the movie if machines were able to be in the matrix?
Corrected entry: If Tank can generate all sorts of guns and other weapons in the Matrix, (i.e. right before Trinity and Neo try to rescue Morpheus) why on earth doesn't he generate some sort of bullet-proof vests or body armor. It would be a lot safer, but no one ever has any. (This is especially obvious when Neo fights Smith in the train station.).
Corrected entry: After the lobby shootout Neo calls the elevator. You can see that there is a "down" button, so the Lobby cannot be the lowest floor inside the building. But the elevator crashes there although it should have fallen even lower. Given the brakes were destroyed there'd be no way of preventing it going to a restricted, lower level.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Fishbourne takes Keanu in the programm (with the red woman) and explains the Matrix, he freezes the programm. You can see the pedestrians (pay attention to the people near Keanu and Agent Smith) change positions between shots, although they aren't supposed to move.
Corrected entry: After Neo gets the bug in him, Morpheus is talking to him on the phone and says something about the line being tapped, and how they can't know how important Neo is, otherwise he would probably be dead. He then says "Go to the Adams Street bridge." Now if the line's tapped, why has Morpheus let the bad guys know how important Neo was, and also where they're going to meet him? Also, if the agents then had that info, why didn't they do something about it?!
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.)
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Corrected entry: When the chopper is idling outside the building and Morpheus is now all alone, trying to break the cuffs, the Agents are two rooms over. They still have a clear shot from that room, and Neo is still pointed at the first room. Why doesn't one of them shoot at the chopper at that point? Clear shot at Neo or the gas tank, which prevents Morpheus's getaway in the first place.
Corrected entry: Revolving bullet-time scene with Neo and Agent Smith in the train station. Note the speed they are turning and that of the bullets leaving the gun is identical. This would imply when played in 'real-time' they are moving at the same velocity of the bullets. The bullets should (obviously) be moving at a faster speed.Paul Andrews
Corrected entry: Fact 1: Anyone who is still a part of the Matrix is a potential host for an Agent. Fact 2: Agents can see though the eyes of any "matrixed" human (ex. Agent Smith saw what the subway bum saw). Fact 3: The Agents knew that Morpheus would contact Neo. Taking these facts into consideration, why did the Agents have to plant a homing bug on Neo? They knew that Morpheus wanted to contact Neo so why not just monitor everything that Neo saw, wait until he met up with Morpheus and then take over Neo's body and grab Morpheus for questioning.
Corrected entry: The agents are all computer programs and are good shots, but when Neo dodges the bullets, the first of the agent's shots is well out to his left.
Corrected entry: In the subway fight when Smith and Neo remark about each other being empty,they spin back and you hear the clank of them dropping their guns. But when they are standing, they have their guns back and then throw them away again.
Corrected entry: When Neo is being brought out of his workplace by the agents, there are the three agents walking with him. However, when they show the scene in the side mirror of Trinity's bike, Agent Smith cannot be seen but the other two agents can (you can see it if you freezeframe the DVD).
Corrected entry: If the machines know about the Human Resistance, why, oh why do they not kill humans that awaken rather than let them fall down the drain?
Corrected entry: Around the beginning of the movie, Neo is late for work. You can tell that he's late because he curses at himself. Why would his alarm clock go off at a time when he's late? Surely he wouldn't set his alarm clock to a time when he's late for work?
Corrected entry: Morpheus tells Neo that they don't release people after a certain age, but he did it because Neo is the one. However, later we find out that Cypher has been out of the Matrix for 9 years. This is hard to understand because Cypher is at least 10 years older than Neo. Why then did they release Cypher, if he also was past the certain age?
Corrected entry: If the agents can jump into the body of anyone in the Matrix, why didn't Agent Smith jump into the body of one of the cops who try to capture Trinity at the start? He is told there are cops up there before she takes them out, if he had jumped straight away he would have had her trapped.Shay
Corrected entry: When the gang are running up the stairs in the apartment block and Neo notices a cat twice and claims deja vu, i noticed that the cat walks over a red carpet in the first two shots but when there is a closeup of Neo and he is pointing toward the entrance the carpet is gone.
Corrected entry: As Neo hangs on the ledge of the building trying to reach the scaffolding, he drops his cell phone. Watch the metal part he grabs on to. It bends back and forth against his weight.
Corrected entry: I like how in the movie the agents continue to use one hand to shoot .50AE desert eagles and there being very little recoil. I shot one of these guns before at a gun range and I'm no weak guy even with two hands the gun had a wicked recoil.
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.
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?
Corrected entry: In the scene when the gang are in the bathroom wall, the soldier enters it and the toilet seat is down, then in the next shot it's up.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo and Smith have a western showdown, Smith fires his Desert Eagle atleast nine times by my count, when a desert eagle only has a clip size of 7 bullets. Also no shells discharge from the gun during the bullet-time sequence.
Corrected entry: According to the explanations given to us in the movie, the matrix is a computer generated world that is fed to a person's brain. This also means that anything you think or do, is processed by The Matrix, and the appropriate response is fed to your brain. This opens up a whole can of worms. If Morpheus and his team, are jacked into the Matrix, then they must rely on The Matrix to feed them whatever they see and feel, thus The Matrix must know exactly where they are at any given moment, what they are doing and what they are feeling, in order to provide every person with the correct feed. If this is true, then why does it need Agents to look for intruders, when it so obviously already knows where they are? On the same subject, why would the Agents need to interrogate Neo or Morpheus? They are already jacked into the Matrix so the Matrix already knows everything they know. Yet another Buick sized plot hole, if you ask me...
Corrected entry: When Neo is in his cube and the fedex guy brings him his cell phone, neo is busy working on his computer. However you can clearly see that the computer is turned off.
Corrected entry: Security building scene - as Neo runs he is shown from a side view and the columns are shatering with bullet holes but there isn't one single bullet impact on the wall behind him. The wall is crystal clear.
Corrected entry: In the beginning, when Neo is dodging the agents by running through the cubicles into an empty bathroom, he runs into/by a guy at the copy machine. How come the agents didn't "see" Neo through the copy machine guy?
Corrected entry: When they strap Neo into the chair for the first time to send him to the loading program, they strap his feet down with metal cuffs. When he bolts out of the chair, he is not held down by the cuffs.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo receives the mobile phone in the Fed Ex package, the phone that slides out is a Nokia 8110. When the phone rings he holds it to his ear and presses the button to extend the flap, this feature is on the Nokia 7110 only. The 8110 cover flap does slide down but only manually.
Corrected entry: When Neo is in the ship and they are all at the table eating, the food is described to him as a "single-celled protein..." This is a nonsense statement, single-celled is not an applicable description of a protein.
Corrected entry: If you look carefully at the scene where Neo bursts in room 303 and gets shot by the agent, you can see that there is already blood on the wall before Neo bumps against it.
