15 Movie Sex Scenes That Totally Came Out Of Nowhere

14. The Zion Rave - The Matrix Reloaded

The whole Zion rave sequence from the first Matrix sequel gets a ton of flak from fans for being both weird and wholly unnecessary.

Though you can perhaps argue that Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity's (Carrie-Anne Moss) sex scene in the middle of the rave nods towards their greater humanity amid incredibly dark times, that seems pretty damn evident regardless.

The main issue here is that people come to the Matrix movies for awesome effects-driven action, not five-minute rave montages intercut with unappealing B-roll of two actors with middling sexual chemistry rubbing their crotches together.

It feels like deleted scene fodder that somehow made its way into the final cut, and it adds virtually nothing (positive, anyway) to the film.
