Following the events of The Matrix (1999), Neo and the rebel leaders estimate they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. Neo must decide how he can save Trinity from a dark fate in his dreams.
The film's highway chase sequence took almost three months to shoot (longer than many films' entire shooting schedule).
Power Station Guard:
See you tomorrow.
When Neo is fighting the many Smith agents, if you watch the scenes in slow-motion, various Smith-faces are obviously computer animated and/or stunt doubles.
The WB shield/logo is hidden in the green code during the opening CG sequence and can be seen rotating as the camera starts to pull back and dissolve into the face of the clock.
The version shown on TBS dubs the excessive use of the word "Shit" to "Shoot" or "Shucks." It also omits the nudity during the scene in Zion about 25 minutes in and the lines "You're fucking dead!" and "I'm gonna fucking kill you!" have the expletives cut out of the scene. Plus some of the car chase was omitted.
