Where did you watch this movie?

In the near future, a computer hacker named Neo discovers that all life on Earth may be nothing more than an elaborate facade created by a malevolent cyber-intelligence, for the purpose of placating us while our life essence is 'farmed' to fuel the Matrix's campaign of domination in the 'real' world. He joins like-minded Rebel warriors Morpheus and Trinity in their struggle to overthrow the Matrix.

When Agent Smith is interrogating Neo, after Smith has sealed Neo's mouth shut and he is backed into the corner, when the camera cuts back to Smith you can clearly see a reflection in his glasses of Neo still sitting down in the chair.

Revealing Mistakes
In the jump scene when Neo is running at full speed, you can see the CGI cutout of him from the background. It looks almost like a net around him.

After Neo is shot by Agent Smith, Trinity leans close to whisper. Her hair begins to fall over her face. Cut to another angle and her hair is back in place again.

Revealing Mistakes
During the fight scene in the subway, as the Agent is about to punch through the concrete post, the section to be punched out is clearly visible.

Factual Mistake
During the flashback scene where Morpheus is describing to Neo the "peak of civilization", cars can be seen driving on the left hand side of the road. This is due to the filming location being Sydney, Australia; and in fact that footage is of the Sydney Harbor Bridge.

Numerous differences between sunglass reflections and the surroundings.

The doorknob at the Oracle's apartment is installed backwards. The screws are on the outside of the door, allowing a passer-by to take off the plate and remove the doorknob. Normally the screws would be on the inside to prevent this.
According to The Wachowskis, all animals in the Matrix universe are computer generated images.

The spring-loaded cell phones used in the film were Nokia Stilleto's or 8110's. These phones were produced in limited quantities and were only available in Europe and in Australia.

While asleep (inside the Matrix) at the beginning of the movie - one of Neo's illicit computer searches revealed that Morpheus had eluded authorities at Heathrow airport.

Carrie-Anne Moss was a cast member of the short-lived television show Matrix (1993).

Carrie-Anne Moss auditioned with the scene in the nightclub where she first approaches Thomas Anderson.

Neo/ Thomas Anderson wakes up during the course of the film seven times.

The first film to be shot in the then just-opened Fox Studios in Sydney.

The visual effects comprise roughly 20% of the entire film.

Chow Yun Fat turned down the role of Morpheus.
