Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Most of the hovercraft captains and crews given how they were KilledOffscreen. They were fairly interesting given their brief screen-tie and could have at least warranted a scene of their final battle (although that might have been more than the budget allowed for). It doesn't take much effort to hope that HesJustHiding! for some of them.


** 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. Once again, this idea was relegated to the video game ''Enter the Matrix'', where Niobe and Ghost fight vampires and werewolves in the Merovingian's mansion.

** Neo dominating them is hardly badass decay. He's the One; look how effortlessly he beats Smith up at the end of the first movie. If anything he has a much harder time fighting them than he should have. Morpheus and Trinity is fair enough.

* FanService or FetishRetardant: The rave/sex scene. The humans are variously dirty and sweaty as they dance in a highly sexual manner, and we see Neo and Trinity having sex with the plugs on their bodies in full view as they do so. May only appeal to a subset of the population.

* NightmareFuel: "There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept." Zion has always been in danger, but this is the first time it becomes clear that the ''entire'' human race has no secure stake in this world, and its continued existence has hung on the mercy of the Machines.

to:

* NightmareFuel: TheReveal that the machines have destroyed Zion repeatedly in the past, and it only exists as a BatmanGambit to bring those who deny the Matrix together, and the machines can periodically get rid of them once their numbers get too great. And if Neo doesn't comply with this cycle, the Matrix will be destroyed too, destroying the ''entire'' human race. When Neo claims they need humans to survive and wouldn't let that happen, the Arcitect coldly tells him "There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept." This scene turns the franchise on its head -- there was never really a war. Zion has always been in danger, but this is and the first rebellion only exists because Zion allows it to, they have the full capacity to wipe it out any time it becomes clear that the ''entire'' human race has no secure stake in this world, they want, and its continued existence has hung on the it's only by their mercy of the Machines.that our species is allowed to exist as a fuel for them, and even then they see us as expendible if we don't get in line.

* 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 that the film runs on RuleOfSymbolism, it likely symbolized freedom of sexuality and life.

** Not enough time is given to Smith!Bane, even though it's his first time in the real world and he's become the thing he despises. It would have been interesting to see Smith!Bane's reactions to a real body; you can see a little bit when he's staring at his own cut hand.

Added DiffLines:

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Although it was used in the film very briefly, Rob Dougan's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qWePX39R40&t=92s "Furious Angels"]]. While not as well known as his other contribution to ''The Matrix'', "Clubbed to Death", it's still a ''super'' badass song.


* SlowPacedBeginning: The battle between Smith and Neo doesn't start until forty minutes later.



* 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.

* HypeBacklash: The first one was so beloved that everyone got pumped up for the sequels, everything was hyped to hell and back... and when ''[[Film/TheMatrixReloaded Reloaded]]'' came up, it made loads of cash but left many disappointed. (So much that ''[[Film/TheMatrixRevolutions Revolutions]]'' couldn't even match the first film's box office.)
