It wasn't neo on the motobike, it was Trinity. Did they even watch the bike chases?

Surprising poll result.
The scenes mentioned in the article could be considered as better.
IMO, Trinity's motorcycle escape in Matrix Reloaded in one of the best. :jmp:

Did Angie have any stunt for that bike scene?? 'Cause I swear I can see her face while she's riding, and not only in close-up scenes...

:wve:

umm....why did Lara win? Don't get me wrong, I like Lara, but neither of the movies had anything close to as good as the bike chase in the Matrix, or the chases in Last Crusade/Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. She's on a bike for a total of maybe 20 minutes, and there isn't really anything special about the scenes. In one she drives around in slow-mo in her garage, and in the other she drives on the great wall of China. Big whoop.

Neo? The only person on a motorcycle was Trinity. ;)

I don't even remember any motorcycle scene in the TR movies. Just those walking gorilla statues and "emotional" scenes with daddy.

I don't even remember any motorcycle scene in the TR movies.

What?? It's when the enemies broke into her manor and tried to get the artefact back (they did), and Lara went to her garage and down there all the action scene happened. :tmb:

I remember she shot some baddies in her garage with a screwdriver or something like that. I was eleven years old when I watched the movie for the first time and the last time I saw it was four years ago. I really can't remember any motorcycles. :p

It was the only scene in the movie where she slapped the bad guy with her motorcycle... still don´t remember? I don´t blame you... I try to forget these horrible movies too :p
