The Matrix
The Matrix mistake picture

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)

The Matrix mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the 3 agents visit the roof top where Neo saved Trinity from the chopper, you can clearly see the camera crew in the agents' sunglasses. (01:47:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo is at the office, while in his cubicle, he gets an express delivery. As he signs for it you can see another arm laying on the desk behind him. In the next shot he hands back the clipboard, you see it is only him and the delivery man. [Only visible in 4:3 format.] (00:12:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When Smith sits down with Morpheus he says 'I want to share a revelation...' Here the white screen is visible in the left lens of his glasses. It is also visible in both lenses at one point. (01:33:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When Trinity's getting arrested (near the start) and two cops are kicked into the wall, you can see a wire around the cop on the right leg area, to make him fly across the room. (Seen clearer in slow motion.)

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo and Smith have a fight at the train station, before Smith drags Neo by the legs and tosses him onto the train track, he punches Neo into another wall. Just after he does this, a red piece of equipment is visible to the left of the screen, being pulled quickly out of shot.

Visible crew/equipment: In the Oracle's house, when Neo is watching the spoon, a reflection of the camera is visible on it.

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo is in the car and asking Trinity if she's seen the Oracle, the white reflective screen is visible in her glasses where the windshield should be.

Suggested correction: No, that is the windscreen. If the sun was shining directly onto the windscreen, it would appear bright in a reflection.

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo receives the cell phone by FedEx delivery, the hand of a sound technician leaning on the back of the cubical is visible in the lower-left of the screen. This is only visible in the full screen VHS version.

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the Subway fight there's a shot of Morpheus, then of Neo, then in the next shot of Agent Smith the white screen is visible in the right lens of his glasses. (01:49:45)

Visible crew/equipment: Bad idea to have mirrored sunglasses in the movie. Look into the lenses of the agents, Neo, Trinity, and any one else who has them, and you can see the camera perfectly.

Suggested correction: There are barely any shots with the camera in someone's glasses. If you want to submit a visible equipment mistake, be more specific.

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo first holds the little boy's spoon the white screen is visible in the reflection. (01:09:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo is crawling round the side of the building after Morpheus's phone call, there are two shots from his point of view. In the second one, close to the black pipe, the square camera is seen in the reflection. (00:15:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Smith and the other Agents turn round in the corridor at the end the white reflective screen is visible in Smith's left lens as he is turning. (01:59:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Smith is interrogating Morpheus in the police building, the two Agents come in. When one of them says, "He doesn't know," the white screen is seen in his glasses.

Visible crew/equipment: When Neo and Morpheus are in the training program with the girl in the red dress, after Morpheus has paused the program you can see a camera and a black fabric cover around it reflected off Morpheus' sunglasses for a considerable amount of time. Noticeably in the shot considerably close to his face while talking. (00:58:00 - 00:59:00)
