Quotes

Cypher: Yeah.
Trinity: Is everything in place?
Cypher: You weren't supposed to relieve me.
Trinity: I know, but I felt like taking a shift.

Goofs

When Neo is fighting Morpheus for the first time (Kung Fu) there is a moment when Morpheus grabs Neo's kick and them flips/spins him to the ground.

Neo does a side kick in to the chest of Morpheus, who catches it, right hand on top, left hand underneath Neo's ankle.

The spin is correct and Morpheus's hands spin Neo and end up with his elbows crossed from the motion of twisting Neo's ankle.

However in the final cut of the scene, instead of having his elbows crossed then going to the finishing stance, Morpheus is already in the finishing stance and Laurence Fishburne has to correct the movement.

He then lowers his arms so his elbows are crossed, then repeats the finishing movement with his left hand above his head and the right hand down by his right hip.


Crazy Credits

At the end of all the credits, the URL for the (now defunct) website of the film is given, www.whatisthematrix.com, along with a password, 'steak'. There's a 'secret' link on the page that requests a password.


Alternate Versions

Neo asks if he can dodge bullets: In the French version, Morpheus answers that when he'll be ready, he won't feel them. In the original version, he answers that he won't have to.
