The Animatrix

by Kyle Pope,
I. Final Flight of the Osiris

1) Completely unedited.

Shocked the hell out of me given the raw eroticism of the opening scene.

II. The Second Renaissance, Part I

1) Close-up of man's head being crushed by a robot cut.

2) Shot of mob destroying a fembot shortened. Bared breast digitally covered when fembot's head was being battered in. Nipples digitally removed from fembot's breasts when mob tears off her clothes and shoots her.

I knew this episode and the follow-up were in trouble given the level of violence and nudity.

III. The Second Renaissance, Part II

1) Shot of screaming soldier being pulled out of his battlesuit and leaving his limbs behind cut.

2) Scenes of machines experimenting on human captives shortened to removed scenes of nudity.

3) Shot of humans stacked into a giant battery digitally blurred to obscure nudity.

This is the worst and last of the edits.
