I know what your saying... I gonna try and find out the true meaning of that scene cos i would like to know. They either slapped it in there to get the extra publicity [not that they need it] or there's some underlying meaning.

But there could have been ten minutes of story told to us during the orgy/sex scene or just cut the movie ten minutes shorter. But hey like I said loved the movie saw it twice so far I just feel if I was the editor I would have done somemore work and taken out some un-necesary parts! Oh well though!
L8 mates!
i totally agree with wicket. i hate to compare but in StarWars Ep2, they also showed the love that was growing between Amidala and Anakin but they didn't show any sex scenes there. you see, there are a lot of things you can do even without showing those sexual stuff. :o

Amidala and Anakin deserved a sex scene! But no! nobody gave it to them! Then Neo gets one .. and everyone starts complaining.

Hope they get one in the next episode.

Besides not to bash on them nor anything, but to be truthfull I´d say Amidala´s love for Anakin is comparable to HowardPorter´s Zombie fish. That was a soap-opera on heavy VFX steroids. :p

If I were the guy, I would be rocking the Nebuchadnezzar all the frigging time instead of waiting to enter that Nightclub they call Zion.

if it is true what i read a bit ago, then you both hit the truth partially. what i read is this in an article where someone interviewed joel silver (the producer):

first he talks about bullet time (with 120 photo-cams put around the set that make a picture at the same time) so the photos can be used to freeze the scene and then move around freely when time stopped. but that was not even close enough for the burly brawl. they had 100 smith stunt doubles (real and good kung fu fighters) in black "smith clothes" fighting with neo. that was filmed from different angles. that went into the computer, got vectorized and then completely digitalized. the faces got changed with a digital model (created out of high quality film shots of the real face from smith). having the complete scene in fully 3d with realistic fighting (it was real to begin with - at least most of it) had the advantage to use every and any desired camera position and playback speed.

in the end silver mentiones proud that in the first part the matrix was just a vision. and now in the second part they actually created that matrix as a side product.

also it is said later in the article that the 2nd part ends in the middle of the action, because reloaded and revolutions is planned as only one really long movie and not 2 seperate episodes. that is the reason that revolutions comes in november already - not to let ppl wait too long.

oh forgot to mention. i was surprised as well when i read the article. even neos clothes are supposed to be rendered in the burly brawl - wow.

and whenever you think that they switched form real film to cg in that scene, they actually "only" switched from cg that is possible to do with regular film to cg that is virtually impossible to do w/o computer to cg that is better not even tried to shoot in regular film.

very awesome

I read somthing about that. Silver said that he would feel sorry for the fans if they had to wait a year for the next one.
