    I personally would recommend people to record the The Making of Matrix Reloaded (Documentary) and watch it after the see the film as there is sure to be some spoilers.;)

    Me too! I don't know why i havn't bought it yet. But i bet sales will go up now with the release of Reloaded.

    Just one thing. If its a trillogy, how come its been a few years since the first film but the 2nd and 3rd are coming out in the same year. (So i think!)

    Maybe i've missed something.

    They filmed the second 2 films back to back, to save money on sets etc (I think), so takes longer to film. I think I heard alyia was going to be in it and died during filming so that had to reshoot a load of the films again, could have been something to do with that??

    And rightly so! Shooting someone in the head at point-blank range is one thing: hitting them with your head is quite another!

    I watched this last night, and I was amazed that the special effects actually look dated now! How fast does this CGI nonsense move??

    The fight in the subway looked far less spectacular, and seeing the film for the second time meant I saw loads of continuity mistakes! I was quite disappointed, to be honest.

    And that's before you notice the gaping plot holes...

    I felt that as well, some of the CGI did look dated and less spectacular, but then again I usually think that when watching films on TV, it certainly wasn't in the OAR. I think my vhs copy looked better.

    The final flight of Osiris was stunning and I can't wait for my anamatrix DVD now, how bloody good was the cgi anamation!:eek: At times I couldn't work out if it was CGI or live action it was that good.

    I think the realism factor of animation can be decided on whether or not the lead female is convincing enough to give you a bone!!:D

    Just before The Matrix (and the news) they showed an amazing full length trailer for Reloaded.
    I wish I'd taped it because it was just stunning (most of the scenes were shown without the crappy green tint)
    .
    I wonder if this particular trailer will be on the dvd ?

    The very reason why I did not watch this last night.

    I originally saw the movie without having seen any trailers or reviews I was totally blown away by it.

    I just watched Osiris last night. Stunning computer animation. I thought it was heading for soft porn at the start.

    Kudos to C5 for showing it in the proper ratio. Pity they couldn't do the same for the main feature, but who cares as I have the DVD anyway.

    I take it that the 'making of Reloaded' was the same one that was on ITV2 last week and ITV1 tonight. Good bit of free publicity.

    AFAIK The TV channels don't need to folow the same BBFC guidelines. If a different version of the film exists they can use it (as long as it abides the ITC (I think that it was it called) guidelines).

    It was cut.

    Trinity breaking the coppers arm was less graphic.
