So the "Matrix Reloaded" has been banned in Egypt because it's "too religious".
The censors say that, "in spite of the technology and spectacular special effects, the
movie tackles themes such as existence and creation". The movie "tackles the issue of
the creator and his creations, searching the origin of creation and the issue of compulsion
and free will," it said. This could provocke a "crisis" in Egypt, and strike its "social peace."
What annoyed the censors the most is that they really enjoyed the movie, but were outraged
when they discovered it looked into the origins of "free will". Obviously, religion is sustained by
the anihilation of free will, which becomes only a choice for God.
Quite frankly, if Egypt, Islam and their "social peace" can be threatened by the cheap philosophy of
The Matrix reloaded, then their social peace cannot be very strong.
