I stumbled upon a website today that was dedicated to pointing out movie mistakes and continuity errors. I couldn’t resist – I just had to read about their findings with regard to The Matrix. It is definitely a funny and interesting read, and listed below are 10 of the funnier ones. You can read the full list here: http://www.moviemistakes.com/film808.
- When Neo is entering the Oracle’s house, you can see the reflection of the camera in the doorknob.
- When Neo is on the scaffold and drops his phone, initially it drops toward an empty street but in the next shot the street is filled with people and a parade!
- When Morpheus and Agent Smith are fighting in the bathroom, Agent Smith punches a hole in the wall but in the next scene the wall is intact.
- The safety wire is visible in Morpheus’ sleeve when he is rescuing Neo from the helicopter.
- Neo originally worked at “Metacortex,” but the second time we see the company sign it says “Meta Cortechs.”
- When the 3 agents go on the roof after Neo saved Trinity from the helicopter, you can see the camera crew reflected in one of the Agent Smith Sunglasses.
- When Neo fights Agent Smith in the subway, he wipes blood on his hand but seconds later the blood had mysteriously vanished.
- After Neo walks out of his meeting with the Oracle, the cookie she gives him has a bite out of it. But in the next scene, the bite was missing and the cookie was whole.
- When Neo was rescued from The Matrix, his ear was pierced.
- When Neo is doing his virtual training, you can clearly see 2 cameramen reflecting off his Neo Sunglasses!
Believe it or not, this is only a small part of the overall list. If you have a chance, check out the full list, it’s pretty hilarious!
