By the end of the movie he had physically lost four inches off his waist. Then it's down to the final showdown between good and evil--a martial arts battle in which the good guy gets pounded until he's almost dead, before he finds the inner will to fight back.

In addition, the Matrix scenes' sets were slightly more decayed, monolithic, and grid-like, to convey the cold, logical and artificial nature of that environment. As for artistic inspiration for bullet time, I would credit Otomo Katsuhirowho co-wrote and directed Akirawhich definitely blew me away, along with director Michel Gondry.

Without spoiling the film I think I can mention a few of the more obvious elements. I remember when they took the padding off the concrete walls and asked me to do the scene. Explaining these elements would make this review go on forever so aside from mentioning them I will not comment on them further. I wanted it to follow its material to audacious conclusions, to arrive not simply at victory, but at revelation. DFilm managed scenes that required heavy use of digital compositing, such as Neo's jump off a skyscraper and the helicopter crash into a building. The method of using real photographs of buildings as texture for 3D models eventually led the visual effect team to digitize all data, such as scenes, characters' motions and expressions. The ripple effect in the latter scene was created digitally, but the shot also included practical elements, and months of extensive research were needed to find the correct kind of glass and explosives to use. It's fun, but it could have been more. We are privileged to do the work we do, and are continually thankful for the generosity and support from you, our loyal readers, listeners and friends. Carrie-Anne [hurt] her hip and ankle. It's actually a form of Virtual Reality, designed to lull us into lives of blind obedience to the "system. I've seen dozens if not hundreds of these exercises in violence, which recycle the same tired ideas: Bad guys fire thousands of rounds, but are unable to hit the good guy. The scene was shot successfully a few days later, with Reeves using only three takes. Smith explained on his YouTube channel that the idea was for him to be Neo, while Morpheus was to be played by Val Kilmer. The effects also help in the symbolism of the film and in creating a very dystopian atmosphere not unlike the one seen in Blade Runner and this works brilliantly.

The notion that the world is an artificial construction, designed by outsiders to deceive and use humans, is straight out of "Dark City. You can still get killed, though: "The body cannot live without the mind".

He built on Reeves' diligence, Fishburne's resilience, Weaving's precision, and Moss's feminine grace. Just today I was reading Psalm 37 and thinking about how your ministry provides ways to 'dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Of course, for a program, running is its own reward--but an intelligent program might bring terrifying logic to its decisions. The bullet-time fight scene was filmed on the roof of Symantec Corporation building in Kent Street, opposite of Sussex Street. In my opinion, you bring sanity and order to the wild world of modern day entertainment. By the end of the movie he had physically lost four inches off his waist. It deals with a great many spiritual teachings which have run through human consciousness for centuries.

The production design team generally placed a bias towards the Matrix code's distinctive green color in scenes set within the simulation, whereas there is an emphasis on the color blue during scenes set in the "real world".

However, the surgery still made him unable to kick for two out of four months of training.

Reeves' character's full name is Thomas "Neo" Anderson — Thomas as in Doubting Thomas; Anderson means "son of man"; Neo means "new" or "change" and is an anagram of "One". Joe Pantoliano, a critically underrated actor does a brilliant job of bringing his character, Cypher, to life.
