2 - This title is also available for individual purchase.
3- This feature is composed of the "What is Bullet Time" and "What is the Concept?" features that were Easter Eggs on the Standard DVD release.

The actual content however is unchanged.

NOTES:
Without a doubt the best release to purchase is the Ultimate Matrix Collection. All 3 films plus several bonus discs containing exclusive and at a very reasonable price. The only thing you will be missing are a few minor features that are exclusive to the The Matrix Revisited Standard DVD but the loss is minor. See the The Matrix Revisited entry for details on those features and to decide if you want that Standard DVD release.
