If you’ve never heard of Vudu, it’s an on-demand media streaming service owned by Walmart. It usually offers new movies earlier than Netflix, but the full selection of older movies and TV shows still lags far behind.
However, what many people don’t realize is that Vudu also has a growing Movies On Us section that lets you watch full movies for free, so long as you’re willing to endure the occasional ad.
The following is a list of the best free movies you can watch on Vudu right now. You can stream any of these via digital streaming boxes that support Vudu, cast them to Chromecast, or watch them using the Vudu mobile apps.
1. The Matrix
This cult science fiction classic (check out these gifts for science fiction fans) features Keanu Reeves as Thomas Anderson, a computer hacker who goes by the name Neo. Once Neo is contacted by a famous hacker named Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), a wanted government terrorist, his entire world turns upside down.
Morpheus brings Neo into the “real world”, a place where humans have been turned into nothing more than a source of energy for intelligent machines.
