Two researchers in a green alternative energy project are put on the run when they are framed for murder and treason.
The ramp Keanu Reeves runs down during the explosion is located at Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, Illinois. The ramp is located at the IPNS (Intense Pulsed Neutron Source) facility and can be seen in aerial photos on the division's website.
What took you so long?
Eddie Kasalivich: The bridge was up.
In the shot taken from the top of the drawbridge looking down after the cop/stuntman has slid down off it you can see the landing pad quickly pushed out of view by the actors at the bottom.
As the end credits come to the end, the music fades out and a rumble gets louder and louder. This is the start of a shockwave resulting from the massive explosion at the end of the film. The viewpoint is of Keanu Reeves who by now is in a helicopter and comes straight on screen after the last of the credits has gone up. The ground implodes briefly and you hear Agent Ford say "Whoa!".
