Special Features
There are no supplements on Disc One of this two-disc set, but mind-bending special features found on Disc Two start with a 22-minute making-of featurette that plays when selecting Preload. The Matrix Unfolds is a five-minute look at The Matrix phenomenon that includes the trilogy, The Animatrix, and the video games, as well as offering interviews with cast and crew members. Freeway Chase is a 31-minute in-depth deconstruction of this incredible action and effects scene in The Matrix Reloaded. The last featurette on the first menu page is a 10-minute design and advertising featurette titled Get Me An Exit. Moving on to the second menu page, there is a 28-minute promo and making-of the game Enter The Matrix; and the 2003 MTV Movie Awards ever-coveted opening parody, this time starring Justin Timberlake and Seann William Scott. (Hilarious spoofs of years past include The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring with Jack Black and Sarah Michelle Gellar and Star Wars: Episode I

  WSR Narrative Review
Special Notes:
Also available in a 1.33:1 (4:3) version.

Story Synopsis:
If you can make it past the first fight and some lengthy conversations about nothing coherent, "The Matrix Reloaded" picks up where "The Matrix" left off...with Neo (Reeves) and Trinity (Moss) finally revealing their true feelings for one another as they follow Morpheus to Zion

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is sharp and detailed, with textures that can, at times, appear impeccably rendered. The details in clothing like thermal shirts and patent leather; and facial features like unshaven beards, pores, and Laurence Fishburne
