Neo's final battle with Agent Smith in Matrix Revolutions.
About this creation
Neo's final battle with Agent Smith in Matrix Revolutions. This is the start of the battle on the rainy street just after Neo's and Smith's first assault on each other. Here we see Neo reeling from the blow and Smith crashing into the blacktop. One hundred Smiths stand watching the battle.
The main picture has a rain effect created with a custom brush in Photoshop. A rather arduous task, but worth it in the end I feel.
Same as the main picture, but without the rain effect. And yes, I agree that it would have looked better cropped tighter, but this resulted in Neo losing his head. When I tried to just crop the right side, it left the picture feeling unbalanced. Therefore, I will just go with an alley on each side of this building.
It is certainly more gothic than the building in the movie, but I went with a bit of artistic freedom on this one. I feel it gives more visual interest in a still shot of this nature.
Amazing! This is one of my favorite movie series! And you captured the last battle perfectly! It is instantly recognizable, the folding asphalt, Neo reeling from the blow, and all the perfectly lined up Smith's are perfect! This will stay in my memory for years to come. A extremely well earned MOTD and 5-5. --John
Hey wait, where's that one "Smith" that was different to the others and... oh right, that was only at Brickworld (snicker... sorry for the "in joke" everyone, you had to be there). Truly a stunning piece of work and well deserving of the BB blog! ~ Chris.
WOW, this is really cool :) I admire how you ended up buying sooooo many smiths just for this creation. I'm planning on posting my Neo and Smith too, exept, I have just the one. Anyway, it looks good! Keep it going :)
THAT's why I could not find any businessmen minifigs on Bricklink... This is a very imaginative thing to build; I mean, you just had the itching to build a fight scene from the last Matrix movie, not that anyone saw it, but this is really cool. I love how you did the pavement bunching up from Neo's impact.
Uh... This is a lot to take in at once. 1) becuase I've never seen the Matrix and 2) the constant repetition with the road, other ..."Smiths", and the building make the uneven space with Neo and Original Smith(?) hard to look at and focus on. Good build though! 4/5.
Well, having seen only parts of the Matrix, I cannot say yay or nay as to the accuracy. However, I can say that this is a great build! Nice effect with the road. Also, methinks that this is another example of your amazing minifig collection (your Highlander Battalion numbers close on 6000, right?)! Keep 'em coming!
