In the opening (and one of the closing) scenes of The Matrix Reloaded, Trinity jumps backwards out the window of a skyscraper shooting at Agent Thompson, and he immediately jumps out after her, shooting wildly.
Now, as Agent Thompson first saw her while he was on the elevator, he knows:
- They're on a really high floor, and presumably that there's nothing but tarmac below.
- Nobody but The One could survive such a fall, and she isn't.
- She will die on impact.
With this in mind, apart from being a really cool shot to put in the trailer, why would Agent Thompson bother to try and shoot her to death instead of letting her fall to her death unaided?
