Weapon And Combat Details Fans Noticed In 'The Matrix' Movies

Vote up the details that hit the mark.

The Matrix trilogy is one of the most action-packed, mind-bending franchises in big-screen history, and for good reason. The Wachowski's pioneered new visual effects. The mythology made us reexamine our perception of reality. Keanu Reeves showed us he knew kung fu. In many ways, the latter has been the most influential, and fans online are pointing out what makes the weapons and combat in The Matrix movies so special. For example, in the first installment, an overhead shot of Neo and Morpheus sparring reveals something about the very nature of their relationship-- their bodies form a yin-yang. In The Matrix Revolutions, during the final fight scene, Agent Smith rears up for a punch just as lighting strikes across his fist, briefly turning him into the Zeus-like figure he is. Some of these details linger in the background. At the end of The Matrix, if you look closely you can see one of the agents hold the other back, signaling that Neo is clearly too powerful to attempt stopping.

    Agent Smith Only Says 'Neo' During Their Final Fight In 'Matrix Revolutions'

    From Redditor u/HagbardCelineHere:

    Agent Smith only calls Neo 'Neo,' instead of 'Mr. Anderson' or 'Thomas Anderson,' once in the whole trilogy - at the very end. This seems to terrify Agent Smith, who promptly loses his mind.
