* CaliforniaDoubling: In the scene in which Neo says "I used to eat lunch there. Good noodles", the car is clearly driving through the Chinatown end of George Street in Sydney's CBD. Of course, you also see the Sydney Tower and the Maritime Services Board control tower on the city's skyline.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The world inside of the Matrix is in the year 1999, and it certainly looks very, very '90s. The computers are all boxy, the monitors CRT, and the mobile phone that Morpheus first calls Neo on is big, blocky, and has an antenna. The club that Neo meets Trinity is dripping with IndustrialMetal aesthetic, and the credits song is by Music/RageAgainstTheMachine.



** The Wachowskis wanted Creator/JohnnyDepp for Neo, while Creator/WarnerBros wanted either Creator/BradPitt or Creator/ValKilmer. Creator/EwanMcGregor turned down the role of Neo, as he was filming ''Franchise/StarWars Episode I: Film/ThePhantomMenace''. Creator/DavidDuchovny turned down the role of Neo to make ''Film/TheXFilesFightTheFuture''. Creator/NicolasCage turned down the part of Neo because of family commitments. Creator/TomCruise was also considered. Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio turned it down, supposedly because he was concerned about the amount of special effects.

** The “mental projection” of the Matrix would have been plot-relevant, with Switch (the butch blonde woman and only other woman in the crew besides Trinity) appearing as a woman in the Matrix, but [[WholesomeCrossdresser a man in the real world.]]
