The Matrix's Bullet-Dodging Scene, Faithfully Recreated in Lego

Illustration for article titled The Matrixs Bullet-Dodging Scene, Faithfully Recreated in Lego

Neo and Agent Smith dodge bullets inside the Matrix. But this version doesn't star Keanu Reeves and Hugo Weaving; it stars superpowered Lego men in this frame-for-frame, stop-motion recreation of one of The Matrix's most famous scenes.


In honor of the 10th anniversary of The Matrix, a group of fans recreated nearly 900 frames of the film. The entire sequence is animated "in camera," with no wire removal, no Photoshop, and no special effects other than what can be created with the Lego blocks themselves. The entire project took 440 hours, and you can see videos of the laborious process on the project website.

You can also see a side-by-side comparison of the Lego version with the original:

Am I the only one who wanted the bullet to hit him in the but and not the leg? If you notice the agent never takes his eyes off Neo when Neo is shooting but Neo looks backwards. He was just asking for a metal enema.
