Question: Morpheus points out that he has seen agents punch through brick walls, during his fight with Smith, Morpheus is punched several times, now the rebels in the matrix still experience pain and can die, so shouldn't a punch from Smith, who we seen punch through brick walls in the subway scene, shouldn't the punches that hit Morpheus kill him? Or at least break his face so badly he ends up brain dead?
Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: When Smith interrogates Morpheus, Smith says "I must be free", the other 2 agents come in and say "what are you doing", what's this about? Why were they concerned with what he was doing and why does Smith seem less "robotic" than the other 2 agents, it is like he has actual wants and needs?
Question: When Kimberly's friends died first in her vision she and her friends died last, but why were they killed before everyone in reality?
Question: There are 2 scenes in this film that reminded me of Shaun of the Dead, the first is the scene in which they use times to aim and shoot, they use the same funny specific times like "11:45" etc. The second is the having characters who look like the main characters. Has the director ever commented on inspiration from Shaun of the Dead, is it a nod or a ripoff?
Question: When Obi-Wan is told by Dooku that the republic is controlled by Darth Sidious, he does not immediately believe it. Later in the movie he mentions it to Yoda and Mace Windu and he remarks that it does not feel right. Why were the Jedi not able to connect the dots and figure out a pattern when Palpatine stayed in office longer than he should have? That should have been a red flag. Are the Jedi not clued in at all?
Question: In the film, the way the actors and actresses are dressed refers to the late thirties (rain coats, Panama hats, sophisticated dresses), why?
Question: After Seabourn Legend is way past the oil tanker, it heads straight for the island. There were sailboats all around. So why didn't the other half of the passengers just jump off the back of the ship away from the propellers? That way they can be saved by the sailboats.
Question: Are we to believe that an entire battalion of SS troops with a lot of panzerfausts (as shown when they march) are unable to kill one stationary Sherman? Even if there would be many inexperienced soldiers drafted at the end of the war they can't be that bad right?
Question: Later on in the film, Matt says to Gabriel that it would take him months to download the data unless he eliminated the congestion and then realises that the fire sale was to do just that... Kick everyone off all the networks so that Gabriel can use all available bandwidth. But Gabriel hacked into the Government the night before, which triggered the servers at Woodlawn to download the data as a backup. If it would have taken months to download the data BEFORE the fire sale, why were the Woodlawn servers able to download the same data in less than a day?
Question: Doc has always been firm about not wanting to create some sort of paradox. Was he not at all worried that eventually someone would go into his barn looking for him and find his giant refrigerator and his model railway with the car that said "TIME MACHINE" on it? I know he stayed behind after he rescued Clara so could have removed all that, but the original plan was he was going to hop into the DeLorean with Marty. We know he definitely left the model railway there as Clara picked the car up which prompted her to go after him.
