R | | Action, Sci-Fi
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.
To make this film visually distinctive from its predecessor, most of the action takes place in the real world; in The Matrix Reloaded (2003), most of the action occurred inside the Matrix.
I got nothing, sir. No sign of Niobe or Ghost. Nothin' but blue pills.
It had been established that Neo was trapped at the train platform not being "jacked in", but lying unconscious, requiring Seraph and Trinity to bargain for his release. Later, as they are travelling through the Matrix (in the city), Neo announces he must visit the Oracle one last time. After their encounter, Neo is seen being unplugged, not lying in the infirmary.
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.
