If you freeze frame on the DVD you can briefly see the Name Plate on an Osiris bulkhead that says : Mark IV 16 : OSIRIS : Made in the USA 2097. Looking up the text in the bible it reads: "But when Herod heard this, he said, 'John, the man I beheaded, has been raised from the Dead!'" See more »
Set just before the beginning of The Matrix Reloaded, the crew of the ship Osiris escape a flurry of Sentinels by escaping to the surface where they see the massive drillers begin their descent into Zion. The crew must warn the city before it's too late.
This could have been a spectacular short, but they just don't know what to do. A chunk of the running time is made up of a superfluous fight scene right at the start, and there really isn't much story. The visuals however are amazing (director Andrew R. Jones designed the SFX for Titanic and Superman Returns), even for 2003 standards the motion capture is very photo-realistic.
It's just a shame that it doesn't amount to much.
