Did You Know?


During the movie's chase sequence, an Agent slides neatly to a halt in a standing position. This is actually a blooper. Actor Vaughan Beckley's shoes were worn down to virtually no grip and the floor was wet and, had the shot continued past the edit point, the audience would've witnessed the Agent hurtling out of the frame head first.

In certain shots of the Operator, you can see the edges of the Zion ship set and corridors and desks of the office building beyond in which the set has been built. See more »

The best fan film I've ever seen...
22 February 2004 | by (EL) – See all my reviews

This is probably the prodigy of all fan films. I've seen many, and the majority of them are awful. However, this was an exception. A beautifully done masterpiece.

I actually didn't hear about it until I was browsing IMDB. I came across the title, never heard of it before. Being a rabid Matrix fan, I immediately went in search of a download for it. I found it easily by just visiting their webpage.

The story is pretty brief. It's basically a side story of two side characters from the film moving on a side mission.

One great part about the film is that it's ran by experienced film makers (small or not). They got to do some work with the wires as well as a few special effects here and there. They obviously put loads of time working on this. They even filmed it in the same city of the first Matrix. Check out the site for more details on the making of. There's so much to it.

Don't watch it expecting a clone of The Matrix. Watch it expecting something new, but in the same style of the originals. Enjoy!
