not appropiate for kids

There are several war scenes very gory and most of the time humans are shown getting run through by hooks.

Animated episode-movie set in the "Matrix"-universe. Some episodes are good, others are bad. Teens and up.

You need to know that "The Animatrix" is an animé/animated episode movie set in the "Matrix"-universe. Unfortunately, not all of them are good. The movie has its violent moments, such as a head being crushed in strong detail (blood and brain matter), but most of the time the violence is not strong. Teens will be able to handle it, for it is animated. Suitable for viewers 12 and up. Though each episode was animated very well, only episodes 2 and 3 were worth watching and they were terrific. The other episodes are so-so.

An ambitious collection of animated shorts based off the Matrix.

Film-by-film ratings: Final Flight of the Osiris (3.5 out of 5): Not much happens. But the CGI animation looks great and the ending is important to the story of the first Matrix movie. The Second Renaissance Parts I & II (3.5 out of 5): A detailed prequel backstory to the trilogy but with a convoluted animation style and no need to be split into two parts. Kid's Story (4 out of 5): A fascinating mini-story involving a seemingly ordinary teen's escape out of the Matrix. I wanted to see more of this character and the art style was really cool. But, a short film is a short film after all. Program (2 out of 5): A stylishly animated filler. Probably the weakest in this collection. World Record (3 out of 5): Another filler, but with even wilder art and a more interesting story. Beyond (4 out of 5): A short that definitely needs it's own standalone film. Colorful, dazzling animation, an interesting main character, and a simple but fun story involving Japanese teens, a "haunted" house, and a glitch in the Matrix. Easily my favorite film in the bunch. A Detective Story (3.5 out of 5): A stylish, moody noir mystery and the only short featuring one of the main characters of the trilogy. The ending doesn't make much sense but it's worth a look. Matriculated (3.5 out of 5): A trippy, bizarrely animated story of a group of humans who try to train and befriend a machine. Not sure if I'd put this at the end of this collection, but it's worth a look. As far as iffy content goes, The Second Renaissance is the most violent film of the bunch and features some nonsexual and not particularly detailed nudity. Kid's Story involves a teen suicide, but nothing more than the actual fall is shown. In Final Flight of the Osiris, a man and a woman have a blind-folded sword fight, which tears their clothes until they're wearing skimpy underwear. This is partially played for laughs. There's also one barely audible use of "f--k" in a panic situation.

VIOLENCE abounds, even sexual - interesting concept

Hi, again, I'm Epicboy21, and from the limited stuff of what I saw, it got inappropriate. First one on the disc is fine, with bloodless martial-arts action (reminiscent of the first movie), but the second one contains the following: humans versus robots, with depictions of blood spraying; the next example is that a man's head's crushed into a big splash of blood in close-up, which it then shows his brain, eyes and teeth chatter out from the explosion; the next one is three men laughing, electrocuting a female humanoid robot and ripping her shirt to expose a breast (no nipple is seen, but the third one's the prime example of sexual violence.). Language is non-applicable from what's seen: it's gruesome, but interesting - if you like the Matrix, that is. Watch it if you liked Matrix. By the way, the proper order of the short films are: 1. The Second Renaissance, Part I 2. The Second Renaissance, Part II 3. A Detective Story 4. Kid's Story 5. Final Flight of the Osiris And the following one as individuals throughout the Matrix war pre-Matrix: 6. Program 7. World Record 8. Beyond 9. Matriculated Thankyou for reading.

Good movie, fine for teens.

This is a very good movie, it is comprised of 9 short films, and most of them are fine, but it dose have some bad things: 1. Lots of animated violence, some of it bloody, The film "The second renesosnse" is WAY to mature and deep for young ones. 2. A female robot briefly has he top ripped off. 3. The language is suprisingly mild. SO overall most of the shorts are fine for younger ones, but only mature ones can handle the second renesonse!

Ummm...

My brothers and I decided to rent this movie when I was 8. It should be rated R for life life robot nudity.
