** Also includes the Twins.
** The Keymaker.

** Also includes The CreepyAwesome albino Twins. It helps that they have one of the Twins.
few memorable action scenes that ''doesn't'' devolve into {{Narm}}
** The Keymaker. Hell, he even got to make a cameo in the MTV parody of the film!



** That bloody rave/sex scene between Neo and Trinity early on in the film. See FetishRetardant above.



** The film has numerous instances where Neo is clearly not in the scene and the entirety of his body is computer-generated. While not necessarily a Special Effects Failure, it doesn't look very convincing, and the fact that the film cuts to slow motion every five seconds only serves to drive the point home.



** The fight between Morpheus and Agent Johnson on top of the truck has some rather obvious GreenScreen issues.

to:

** The fight between Also note that the filmmakers and studio touted the sequels' "virtual cinematography" as a breakthrough on the level of the first movie's BulletTime.
*** To make it worse, when Morpheus is fighting on the semi, they screw up a basic "bluescreen" Job. Good luck taking it to the next level when you can't even handle THIS level.
*** When they do use CGI for that scene, there are still failures, making
Morpheus and Agent Johnson on top of look like battling action figures. Johnson's earlier jumping off a car is similarly something that - well, if they hadn't done the truck has some rather obvious GreenScreen issues. shot in slow motion they might have got away with it for at least one viewing.

* SpiritualAdaptation: Seen by some people as a live-action version of ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' thanks to the usage of magical doors and keys that are important to the plot.

* BadassDecay: The Agents, though still anything but harmless, are much less of a threat than they were in the [[Film/TheMatrix prequel]]. Neo utterly dominates three of them at once during their fight early in the movie, [[spoiler:Smith overwrites]] them without any problems whatsoever, and even Morpheus manages to hold his own for quite a while and without serious injuries instead of getting curbstomped like when he went up against Smith back in the day. Trinity is the only main character to run into some troubles with an Agent, but even then she gives as good as she gets.

** Persephone heavily implies that stories of creatures like werewolves and vampires come from old programs with unusual abilities and weaknesses. This seems like it is foreshadowing a major fight with such things, but nothing really comes from it.

** The Architect was seen by some fans as a perfect description of the creator of the Matrix or some describe him as just an underwritten character. While most casual film-goers hated his long-winded SesquipedalianLoquaciousness speech, Philosophers and intellectuals found it refreshing to see in a film.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The rave scene. Almost five minutes of highly sexually suggestive dancing intercut with Neo and Trinity having sex. And it serves no purpose whatsoever. Though given the RuleofSymbolism the film runs on, it likely symbolized freedom of sexuality and life.

** A lot of people find the Merovingian annoying and this clearly the intent of the filmmakers, but there are even more who like him for sheer virtue of having a more vibrant personality [[DullSurprise compared to the main cast]], some genuinely funny moments, and he only expounds his personal world view rather than [[FauxlosophicNarration everyone else's failed attempts at sounding deep]].

Rumor has it that originally this movie and ''Revolutions'' were planned out as just one long movie, hence the needless filler. Or it just symbolized freedom of sexuality.
