The Matrix is an American sci-fi action movie that was made by Warner Brothers. The movie was released in March 31, 1999. When TNT and AMC bought the rights to air the movie, some scenes were censored in order to get a TV-14 rating. As a result some language was toned down identically.

  • The scene where Neo says "How about I give you the finger?" was changed to "How about I give you the flipper?"
  • The scene that shows Neo flipping off the agent was modified for broadcasts on TNT and AMC. In the AMC and TNT versions the camera zooms in on the Agent, as a result you can no longer see Neo's middle finger.
