The Matrix ReloadedClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Matrix Reloaded is the second film in the Matrix sci-fi triology. It has intense and prolonged sci-fi violence and peril, including fights, car chases/crashes, guns, and martial arts. Characters are killed (sometimes more than once). There's some swearing ("f--k," "s--t," "prick," "damn," "hell") and a deeply romantic sexual encounter (briefly graphic, with breasts/butt exposed). Many characters are strong, brave, loyal, and intelligent.
- Sexual Content
- Some passionate kissing, one sexual encounter (not graphic) with partial nudity (her bare breasts, his butt).
- The Matrix Reloaded has many huge fight scenes-- especially ones with clones (Neo must fight 100 Smiths) -- zillions of explosions, and a 14-minute car chase and crash scene on a freeway, with bad guys who can turn themselves into ghost-like wraiths. The characters are constantly in extreme peril, some die, and one wounded character dies but is brought back to life.
- Relatively infrequent use of words including "f--k," "s--t," "prick," "damn," "ass," "hell," "Jesus" and "Christ" used as exclamations.
- Social Behavior
- The Matrix Reloaded explores the difference between destiny and choice and whether choice is "an illusion created by those with power."
