This is a making-of type documentary, found on the second DVD of the 2-Disc release of The Matrix Reloaded, and it is entirely devoted to the section of the movie that took place on the freeway. It consists of behind the scenes footage, interviews, pre-vis and clips from the film. It's well-done, and the half hour it takes is well-spent. You get to find out how they did the several things, as well as get an idea of the experience that it was, for actors, stunt people, and various crew. The processes that went into making the scene work are detailed, and we get insights on the technology used, as well as the immense planning that was an absolute requirement. I won't give any of it away here. This is well-paced, and doesn't waste any time. The speakers all have things to say that add to this, and the entire thing is quite informative. The editing is sharp and spot-on. Devoting 30 minutes just to this one part might seem overkill to some, however, I would say that this is one case where such an action is justifiable, from the sheer epic scope of said section. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the sequence in question. 7/10
