MPAA Rated R for sci-fi violence and brief sexual content

Sex & Nudity

  • A night club scene where there are several outfits related to the BSDM movement. In the foreground of the nightclub scene, a woman is shown pinching/twisting another woman's bare breasts while dancing. There are M/F, M/M & F/F couples dancing and "interacting" during this scene
  • In the same scene in the background there is a leather outfit woman using a leather sex toy (long stick) to stroke another leather masked person (not clear if a M or F) genital area, the masked person is rocking backward and forward. (around 2-3 seconds)

Violence & Gore

  • Three people enter a room with several people in it and they all begin shooting back and forth: rubble falls from the ceiling, walls crumble, people are hit and blood sprays, and one person is kicked and punched.
  • A man holds a gun on three people, they chase him through a train station, he fires on them, and he jumps in front of a train (he is not hit).
  • Three people fight with two other people exchanging punches and kicks, and one man is shot three times (we see bloody holes blow through the back of his clothes).
  • A man stabs a woman in the chest with a scalpel and she falls dead on the floor with a bloody spot on her chest (we see the scalpel sticking out).
  • Two women are chased by a machine called a Sentinel (it looks like a metallic octopus) and one is stabbed in the leg and then through the back (we see blood pour from her wounds) and she falls dead.
  • One man is shoved off a high platform, another man is slashed to death (we see his face slashed and bloody) by a swarm of Sentinels and we watch him die.
  • A man grabs a woman around the throat and holds a scalpel to her throat, she throws him to the floor, and she kicks him repeatedly in the face (we see a very bloody face with a large open gash across his nose); he then hits her head against a wall, another man holds a gun on them, and the woman is shoved down a hatch.
  • Two men fight, one man shoots at the other man, and one man burns the other man's eyes with an electrical cable throwing off sparks -- leaving the eye sockets scorched; we see reddened, blackened wounds.
  • In a scene where humans are represented as made out of bright, orange light, one man knocks another man's head right off with a metal bar; we see the head exploding in a bright flash.
  • When a man is "jacked into" (i.e. enters) the Matrix we see a probe being rammed into the back of his head.
  • A flying craft crashes into a wall, and the passengers are shown unconscious: we see one person is impaled with metal rods (with blood around holes) and we watch as one character dies.
  • A man begins to glow from the inside, his flesh cracks as light shines through and he explodes into bits and then many other men experience the same fate and we see a large explosion.
  • We see two men lying unconscious on hospital tables with monitors attached to their heads (they are apparently comatose) and one has many cuts on one arm.
  • General mayhem including fighting with minimal blood and some explosions.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The Oracle smokes a cigarette.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Overall, this is a very violent and intense film. Most violent film of the trilogy.
  • When the Oracle program is turned into a Smith clone, 'she' takes of her glasses and laughs hysterically, now in the form of a man. This might frighten young viewers.
  • The final fight between Neo and Agent Smith is VERY intense and doomsday-like.
