Lego does the Matrix - Stop motion re-enactment of the famous bullet dodging scene!

Lego = cool
The Matrix = cool
Lego + The Matrix = very cool

LegoAgentJones has created 'Lego Matrix Trinity Help.' 'After around 440 hours of work, and just in time for the 10th anniversary of the original movie release' this is the 'Lego version of the famous Bullet Time dodge scene from The Matrix.'

This gets even better when you see the Lego / Matrix stop motion re-enactment scene alongside the original Matrix film scene:

and if you are wondering how to go about making something like the Lego Matrix stop motion film, then these videos will give you a flavour of the effort that goes into making a film of this nature:

There are a wide range of other Lego / Matrix videos on YouTube but this is arguably slickest stop motion Lego Matrix video yet. More can be found at

Other examples of Lego Matrix films include:

SteveDowdy1's animated Lego Matrix film from Dec 07

rhaustein's 10 minute, full film Lego interpretation of the Matrix on YouTube (Dec 07)

and the highest view count has been achieved by Plugz (uploaded in Apr 06) with 'LEGO MATRIX' achieving 1.3m views on YouTube

Users spend many many hours making these films, with people doing it for love rather than money - 440 hours spent making a 6 minute Lego film is the kind of product engagement marketers can normally only dream of! However, Lego has a special place in many peoples hearts (including mine) and I think people will continue to use it for stop motion filming for a long time to come.
