Continuity mistake: On the skyscraper, when Neo and Trinity kill all of the soldiers, Agent Brown comes to the roof. Neo immediately draws his guns and fires until both of his clips are empty. After that, Neo drops his guns, just as Agent Brown aims at him. During Bullet-Time there are no guns on the floor. When he hits the ground, then the guns are left and right of his legs. (01:41:50)
Continuity mistake: In the interrogation room. Mr. Smith has a green file with him with Neo data accumulated. Smith opens the file and leafs through a few sheets, without removing any, but in subsequent shots we can see that some sheets have been removed from the file and put on the left. (00:16:50)
Continuity mistake: When Trinity confronts the agent on the rooftop and says, "Dodge this", she points her gun to temple of the agent while his head is turned to her. He glances back, but never fully turns his head. The next scene shows him being shot facing Trinity...with a shot in middle of his forehead. (01:42:20)
Continuity mistake: When Neo and Morpheus are in the hallway to see The Oracle, the shot of Neo's hand on the knob shows Morpheus with his sunglasses on. Morpheus is in shot the whole time when the door's opened, and he doesn't move an inch, but in the front shot as he walks through the door, his sunglasses have suddenly been removed. (01:07:40)
Continuity mistake: When Morpheus is being interrogated by the agent alone, the camera switches from behind Morpheus, to just forward of him and back a few times. If you look at the agent's hand on Morpheus' head, you can see that his fingers switch from behind his ear to both sides of his ears as the camera changes. (01:36:25)
Deliberate mistake: When Neo and Morpheus are in the construct place (where it is all white), you can see that Morpheus' glasses are a matte grey and then a second later they are totally reflective. [The shot where Morpheus has flat black glasses was shot with a steadycam. A cameraman using a special camera strapped to his body walks in a snaking path from behind Neo, to behind Morpheus. He passes in front of Morpheus at least once. His glasses were painted flat black to prevent the reflection of the steadycam operator showing up on film. At the end of the shot, you can see the back side of the lens. While doing this scene and saying his dialogue, Laurence Fishburne couldn't see anything.] (00:38:10)
