The Matrix Reloaded

Corrected entry: A real power station in Sydney (the White Bay Power Station) was blown up for the - what else - power-station-blowing-up scene. It was slated for demolition anyway and the film makers requested that they organise it and film it. A lot of people got quite excited about it and turned out to watch it all happen, but in the end it was a bit of a let-down - it's obviously been enhanced for the film.

Correction: The power station wasn't blown up - just a set on the site. The power station still exists and was recently used a filming site for The Great Gatsby. "Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority is undertaking conservation works including roof repairs to the buildings to make them weatherproof and reduce further degradation to the remaining internal plant and equipment." Wikipedia.

Corrected entry: When Neo meets the Architect, the Architect mentions that the matrix was created 6 times. The first two were disasters, and a solution was found by the oracle for the 3rd version. That means the 3rd version would allow "The One" and a "Zion" to exist; this meant that "Zion" was created 4 times (3rd, 4th, 5th version, and current). The architect mentioned that it will be the 6th time they destroyed it.

Correction: No there was always a Zion, the humans were simply waking up en masse necessitating Zions rapidly recurring destruction before the 3rd Matrix.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Neo has his talk with the Architect you can see scenes from the original Matrix on the TV screens that cover the wall.

Correction: The camera shows this a few times, so this isn't trivia.

Corrected entry: During the scene in the 100 Agents fight, Neo has a pole which you can hear whistling in the air. However, this is only possible if the pole is open and hollow, which is not the case. Both ends of the pole are closed (best seen in the shot after the agent hurled into the air lands) and the flexibility (best seen when Neo kicks the pole into an agent) suggests that it is a solid stick.

Henkie36

Correction: The flexibility has nothing to do with anything since this is the matrix were buildings ripple like a pond when helicopters crash into them. The pole only needs to be open on one end to whistle, and it is. Even if it wasn't, again, this is a computer program simulating real life, not actual real life where real physics apply.

Correction: There is no corrolation between the twins and tweedle dum / dee. Dum and Dee fight between themselves, are overweight and very childish. The Matrix twins bear no similarity at all. You might as well liken them to any twins featured in any story.

Corrected entry: If anyone's wondering what happened to Tank, this story might help explain: http://earthlink.eonline.com/News/Items/0,1,11831,00.html.

Correction: This website doesn't exist anymore.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the keymaker gets shot after trying to escape all the Smiths in the hallway, he is shown to have at least 4 bullet holes in his chest. When he is speaking his dying words to Neo and Morpheus he is breathing deep and clear, this would be impossible without choking up all the blood in his lungs.

Correction: Because he's a program, and he knows it. He knows those aren't really bullets, just more programs. And he knows that those "bullet" programs are designed to render his programming inoperable. That's why he's "dying," but he's not choking up his blood because he knows he doesn't really have any.

Corrected entry: When Trinity is turning off the power for the city blocks at the end, she types in "Disable nodes 21-48". No problems here, but when the computer is doing that, you see the computer turn off the nodes or city blocks one after the other. The last shot on the computer shows, though, that node 48 turns is disabled so the process is complete, but then, Trinity says "Come on....please" as she is kind of praying that it turns off in time. It has already turned off. After that, it shows that the lights turn off at least 5 seconds after the computer has disabled them.

Correction: If you send an e-mail to yourself, you don't receive it instantly. Even though you get a delivery confirmation, it still takes time for the information to travel. The computer tells Trinity that the nodes have been disabled, but the information has not reached the nodes yet. This is what she is anxiously waiting for.

Corrected entry: In the highway, when the agent in the police car jumps to another car and flips it over, the wheels keep turning, then there's a quick slow motion and we see the wheels completely motionless, and in the next scene the car is again flying and the wheels are turning around.

Correction: The wheels keep turning, then there's a quick SLOW MOTION and we see the wheels motionless, which then start turning. There is obviously hardly any motion in a slow motion stage.

Corrected entry: After the agent crushes the Oldsmobile, the entire front is totaled, but when the agent jumps onto Trinity's car the front of the CTS has only baseball glove size dents. Trinity's car should have suffered the same fate.

Correction: When the agent crushed the Oldsmobile, he probably applied extra force for more momentum.

Corrected entry: This is another one of those Matrix/Bible parallels. There is a Bible passage that says that disiples are to "set their faces like flint", or show no reaction to, the evils of the world. In other words, they are not to give in to temptations. The connection is that in all of the movies, none of the heroes smile or make many expressions while in the Matrix.

Correction: This isn't true. After Neo fights with Seraph, he says "I had to be sure." Neo replies "Of what?" Then Seraph says "That you were the one." Neo grins while saying "You could've just asked". They make few expressions, but they make them.

Corrected entry: During the 'burly brawl' scene you can see at certain points that the 'metal' bar bends most noticeably when Neo kicks the bar at agent smith and it rebounds of agent smith.

Correction: These are literally superhuman beings (inside the Matrix at least). Bending a metal bar is nothing for them, especially Neo. Look at the strength he displays in knocking a Smith clone into a second story window with one arm. Bending the bar a little with a kick is nothing.

Corrected entry: In the freeway chase, when the agent's police car is shooting Trinity's and pushing it against the side, you can see a (pretty big) microphone next to the police car's rear-view mirror. This happens in the multiple takes of the scene we see from inside this car. (01:24:35)

Correction: This is not a microphone but a handle for the spotlight that most policecars have equipped to their car.

Corrected entry: In the Matrix, Morpheus says in the Matrix it's 1999. That means at the latest, in this movie it could be 2000, with 6 months passing mentioned by Morpheus. Yet there were cars from 2001 to 2003 on the freeway.

Correction: Those cars are later models in the real world, but obviously the world of the Matrix isn't the same as the real world and it is possible that those models of cars were simply made earlier in the Matrix.

Corrected entry: in the conclusion of the freeway chase, the Cadillac CTS's gas door cap takes a bullet (look closely), yet the car does not explode.

Correction: Despite what you've seen in movies, shooting a car's gas tank or related fuel lines does not guarantee that the car will explode.

Phoenix

Corrected entry: In the first Matrix, the characters barely escape the agents with their lives, including Morph who ends up getting captured. The rule is, "You see an agent, you run". Neo is the only one who can defeat them. How is it, then, that in "Reloaded", in spite of the fact that Neo notes the agents are "upgrades", everyone seems more than capable of holding their own against the agents?

Correction: More capable? Trinity gets beat up pretty badly and Morph, even with a sword, needs a hand in defeating the agent.

Corrected entry: When Trinity jumps out of the window and an agent is chasing her, she gets a few severe glass cuts. Once she is resurrected and back in reality, though, her face seems to be just fine. It was stated in the first movie that every wound you get in Matrix is going to appear on your physical body, too.

Grigory the Wanderer

Correction: This seems to be an odd point in the matrix. In the first film, where Neo gets shot repeatedly in the chest/stomach, the wounds don't appear in the real world. It seems that only wounds that the body can re-create easily (such as when neo falls, he spits up blood, his body could create this by biting his tongue or cheek or something) actually appear in the real world, but the effects (pain, death in extreme cases) still carry over as these are controlled by the mind. So the wounds wouldn't show up on Trinity's real body, but she probably still feels some pain.

Gary O'Reilly

Corrected entry: As Neo, Morpheus, and Keymaker are walking down the white hallway of doors, they encounter Agent Smith who says "Sorry, Dead end". The hallway fills with hundreds of Agent Smiths, and the Keymaker has the empty hallway behind him. The Keymaker turns 180 degrees to run away, but there is still empty hallway behind him. Neo, Morpheus and the Smiths have all disappeared.

Correction: Just before they meet Agent Smith they turn 90 degrees ('Here, just here') into another identical hallway. When the Smiths appear the Keymaker backs up to the intersection and looks to his right, then left and then turns into the original hallway they turned out of, hence Neo, etc., would be to his right as he turned 90 degrees.

Corrected entry: In one scene we see Persephone reapplying her nude/pale pink coloured lipstick while she is in the men's room, talking to the crew. In the next shot, she has a different colour lipstick on all of a sudden. Instead of her lips being nude/pink-colored, they are now lined with a darker colour and not filled in with lipstick.

Correction: Her lipstick doesn't seem to change color - it is always pale pink.

Corrected entry: In the highway fight scene between Morpheus and an Agent, the truck they are riding passes the same energy plant seen in the background at least twice. And at times it seems they are about to pass it and in another shot it's far away again.

Correction: The truck passes the plant only once.

The Matrix Reloaded mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the freeway scenes, the katana Morpheus used as a foot hold to grab the keymaker keeps moving. It was at arm's length from the top when he inserted it; when Morpheus was standing on it, the sword was a whole body length below the top; when Morpheus took the sword out in his fight against the agent, it was back in its original position.

Morpheus: Does the Commander have a plan for stopping 250,000 sentinels?
Niobe: A strategy is still being formulated.
Morpheus: I'm sure it is.

More quotes from The Matrix Reloaded

Trivia: In the highway chase scene, the license plate on Trinity's car says DA203. If you look in Daniel 2:3, which says "he said to them, 'I have had a dream that troubles me and I want to know what it means.'" This is possibly making reference to Neo's dream, because he went to the oracle partly to figure out what his dream about Trinity meant. The biblical text is speaking about King Nebuchadnezzar's searching for the meaning of his dream. In Verse 3, the Nebuchadnezzar says, "I have dreamed a dream." In Verse 5, when asked to explain his dream, he says, "The thing is gone from me" (all this is from the classic King James Version). Near the end of the movie as the Nebuchadnezzar explodes as a result of the sentinels' bomb, Morpheus says "I have dreamed a dream, and now that dream has gone from me."

More trivia for The Matrix Reloaded

Question: In the final trailer and on the UK DVD menu there is a shot of Neo putting his glasses on and it going to 'Matrix view'. Does anyone know why this shot was cut from the film,it's cool.The background looks like the 'Burly Brawl' location. Could it have been at the beginning of that? Any knowledge of this out there?

Answer: This was made just for the trailers. The same part (without the Matrix code) can be seen when Smith says "suprised to see me?" to which Neo replies "No." and puts on his sunglasses before the Burly Brawl.
