Rating & Content Info
Why is The Matrix rated R? The Matrix is rated R by the MPAA for sci-fi violence and brief language.
Violence: Many scenes depict violent conflict, often involving a barrage of guns. Many people are shot, some with blood effects. Other scenes portray property damage with implied deaths. A character kills other characters by “unplugging” them from support equipment. Three men use fantastical torture methods on a character they are holding captive, including having his mouth removed and a “bug” inserted into his navel (we later see the bug removed, with some blood effects). A character in a phone booth appears to be run over by a truck. Characters practice fighting using martial arts techniques.
Sexual Content: A man places his hand on an unconscious woman’s clothed breast. We see obscured non-explicit nudity of a male character.
Language: Some scatological and other mild terms are heard. Christian terms of deity are used as expletives.
Drugs/Alcohol: Fantastical drugs are depicted.
