Master LEGO builder Snooperking spent 160 hours creating a remake of the lobby shootout scene from “The Matrix” and, well, he pretty much nailed it.
Snooperking, known for his other LEGO remake of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer which was released in November 2014, decided to take on the most iconic sequences in the Wachowskis’ 1999 film. To jog your memory, the lobby shootout scene has endless guns, one-armed handstands, and Trinity crawling up walls like a boss.
Safe to say, it was the very same scene that made every girl, boy, as well as “cool couple” wish that they were either Trinity, Neo, or Trinity and Neo.
According to Snooperking, who posted the 4-minute odd long YouTube video up on Reddit, the entire stop motion project took him about 160 hours over a whopping total of 3 months. Not only did he recreate the popular “The Matrix” scene in LEGO, he also made 2 behind-the-scenes videos, revealing that one 6-second shot took him “over an hour and a half to film and edit in Photoshop”.
The biggest difference was that while the Trinity (played by Carrie-Anne Moss) and Neo (played by Keanu Reeves) remained poker-faced throughout the actual scene in the movie, the LEGO minifigs’ smiles couldn’t be avoided. In terms of sequence, however, Snooperking got the LEGO remake more or less down pat, save for a surprise at the end.
But we won’t spoil it for you 😉
