Matrix, The - Blood Splotch
Near the end of the movie, when Neo is shot by Agent Smith the first time, there is a bloody splotch on the wall of the hallway behind him. However, Neo does not get pushed up against the wall until he is shot the second time. It doesn't show the blood splotch again until Neo slides down the wall to the floor. This time, the blood is streaked down the wall where he slid. Apparently, they didn't clean the blood splotch off the wall between the last take and the one they used in the movie.

Okay, he got shot in the back, the bullet went probably mostly through his body, and close to the other end. With this force, a shot of blood came out of his back, the same would happen to any other human! Besides, in slow-motion of the first shot, you can see the blood come shooting out of his back.

There was a blood splotch on the wall because HE WAS JUST SHOT! The blood is splattered against the wall from the bullet! The bullet goes through him and carries blood onto the wall.

Actually the blood on the wall is supposed to be from the bullet exiting, what I can't figure out is why there are no bullet holes in the wall.

Maybe the bullet got stuck in his back, and the exit wound for bullets is always like 5 times bigger than the entry wound, especially with a bullet that size.

The bullet went *through* Neo. But the blood sploth on the wall looks really big. I wouldn't expect a bullet to carry that much blood. And Neo is too far from the wall for that blood to have squirted out of his back on his first bullet. Ok, I'm gonna go puke now.

***AHEM***if a bullet goes through you(or several in Neo's case) your back will bleed. and if you fall against a wall the blood from your back be on the wall, and if you slowly sink down to the floor while leaning on the wall...well you get the idea. Neo maybe the one but he still has a human body.
