“The Matrix Reloaded” movie has been banned in Egypt because of its “violent” content and “religious themes.” The Egyptian censorship board says the storyline may cause religious “crises” in those who watch it.

Egyptian censors say, “Despite the high technology and fabulous effects of the movie, it explicitly handles the issue of existence and creation, which are related to the three divine religions, which we all respect and believe in?” The movie “tackles the issue of the creator and his creations, searching the origin of creation and the issue of compulsion and free will. Such religious issues, raised in previous times, caused crises. Screening the movie may cause troubles and harm social peace.”

Critic Wael Abdel Fatah says, “The press launched a campaign to stop showing the movie, saying that it reflects Zionist ideas, and promotes Jewish and Zionist beliefs.”
