The human city of Zion defends itself against the massive invasion of the machines as Neo fights to end the war at another front while also opposing the rogue Agent Smith.
Many of the "raindrops" in the final fight between Neo and Smith are actually single lines of Matrix code, similar to those on displays seen in the "real world" throughout the trilogy. This subtle effect was added to imply the Matrix was beginning to destabilize. This visual trick was easily seen on IMAX and larger movie theaters, but can be seen on smaller televisions as banded rain that seems to "jump" like static during close-ups of the fight scenes.
I got nothing, sir. No sign of Niobe or Ghost. Nothin' but blue pills.
When Trinity is shown dying, Neo bends over her and, in doing so, slightly moves her body which, in turn, moves the fake poles that are supposed to have gone through her body.
There are no opening credits beyond the production logos and the title.
When the film was released in theaters, the waste disposal machine shown at the end had red eyes but on the DVD release the eyes were changed to green. The making of documentary on the DVD still shows the machine with red eyes, obviously the documentary used older footage.
