Matrix Reloaded, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Pretentious sci-fi tale set in the 22nd century about a messianic computer hacker (Keanu Reeves) who leads a band of rebels (including Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss) against the artificial intelligence which has enslaved humans in a virtual-reality world, generated by evil computers bent on destroying mankind. While raising intriguing metaphysical questions and boasting mind-blowing special effects, the Wachowski brothers' sequel of their 1999 box-office hit is mired by a convoluted plot, wooden performances and a jumble of mythological-religious allusions made less palatable by the film's glamorized, video game-like violence. Fantasy-style violence, a shadowy sexual encounter and some profanities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
