When Smith and Neo are running at each other in the rain for the final battle, the camera focuses behind their feet in slow motion. You can visibly see both lines of Smiths on either side of the street. However, you cannot see their opponents, just the feet of whoever it is focusing on. See more »

Initially, I was expecting the movie to be more plugged into the matrix than unplugged from it. After deciding to go back and see the movie a second time with that expectation already established, I watched it again and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I understood then that the movie really required to be primarily "unplugged" in order to make any type of sense at all and close the trilogy. It didn't hurt that the second viewing was on an IMAX, as well. The sound and effects were simply amazing once again, and in spite of all the negative reviews out there, I am satisfied with the trilogy as a whole. I look forward to adding the DVD to my collection; it will be well worth the investment that is required.
