In the High street scene a shop with the phone number 0161 displayed which is a Manchester phone number. Middlesbrough is 01642 where the film is set. The card that Lai Lai Zhen refers to when she gets off the phone also has a postcode M14... which is also Manchester. Middlesborough would be a TS postcode. See more »
Why don't we go to the police? Eh? You and I. I mean, you acted in self-defense. I'll speak for you.
Lai Lai Zhen:
Is it my accent? Do I stutter? Is that it? The people who run this, they are more powerful than the police! They will get you anywhere.
But the bodies. People will see the bodies.
Lai Lai Zhen:
There will be an explanation. It won't be the truth, but it will be what people will buy. A madman with a gun, a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, a car crash. That's how the Tournament remains a secret!

A great ride in an exciting world. Unrealistic compared to our own world, but if you want realism - look out your window. In it's imagined world it's realistic. It builds up nicely, a lot of action and some short stops to get your breath - but not so long that you get bored. Plot develops naturally, most people will guess what is coming, but I see no one blaming Matrix for having an easy plot. The action scenes are exciting. The different characters have their methods of killing without getting comical. It's practical, yet with entertainment in mind, in it's approach. Gory enough to remind us that this is not something that would be fun to do, but not too much to drive us away. A very well balanced action movie that deserves a lot of respect. I will watch it again pretty soon.
