Default The Matrix vs The Bible

The Matrix has definate philosophical aspects. However it also had some very strong ties to Catholic and Christain Mythology.

starting with some names
Trinity-the father, son and holy ghost(Morpheus, Neo, andTrinity herself?)

Zion-in the bible this is the Kingdom of God, where the righteous will be saved after the destruction of Earth(pretty close isn't it"

Neo is the One who will save mankind -The Translation of Christ is "The annointed One"

Cypher and Judas share many similarities, betraying their leader , both Cypher and Judas had their fates sealed as Traitors over a meal.

Merovingian-a frankish ruling dynasty rumored to be descended from Christ



The Wachowskis drew a lot from the Bible and other philophies

input? comments?additions?

Well, it's an easy source to make your movie sound more mythological. I don't find it a very religious thing though. Just makes sense to draw on the past and established lore to give your new story some legitamcy.

Those Brothers Are Idiots...They Made A Half Decent First Movie, And Decided They Were Good Screen Writers Or Something...They Decided To Expand The Matrix Universe But Royally Fucked Up...Too Many Characters, Too Many Characters Givin' Too Many, Zion Is The Holy Land, Neo Is Jesus Christ And Morpheus Is The Fuckin' Easter Bunny Speeches....

Jesus Christ People, Don't Be Fooled By That Jackassowski Brothers Are Smart Bullshit...The Endin' Of Revolutions Wasn't Made So You Would Have To Think, And Form Your Own Opinion Of What Happened...The Endin' Turned Out That Way Because They Wrote A Horrible Script, That Was Way Too Thin, And It Fucked Up At The End....

A Piece Of Advice.....EXPLAIN THE PLOT TO ME, So I Can Form Some Conclusions.....Don't Have Me Guessin' At The Plot And Then Try And Understand A Greater Meanin'...

Not Only Did They Not Explain The Cluster Fuck Of A Plot, They Went Over Their Own Heads....Half Of The Movie You Are Tryin' To Guess At The Plot, While Bein' Fed Bullshit Monologue After Bullshit Monologue....

I Fuckin' Hate The Movie, So Many Idiots Up Here In Toronto Fuckin' Runnin' Round With Matrix Books Explainin' Shit..."This Is Like The Bible"...Have You Fucks Read The Bible....The Bible Does Not Consist Of...."God Had A Son, God's Son Died So He Could Save Us, God Made The Bible So A Fuckin' Half-Assed Movie Could Be Made"

Jesus Christ, There Is Soo Much More In That Fuckin' Book...To Compare The Two Is An Insult.....

Just the fact it parallels the Bible shows those two fucks don't have a hint of originality in that script....BTW, Nice Post Kurt....

so maybe the Wachowskis arent smart enough to realize they plagarized the bible and many other ancient works

but for those of us intelligent contributing members of society we can see the parallels

i think there is some distiguishable characteristics between the movie and the Bible, but they're not streong enough to be compared with each other, in my opinion

Hopefully if the title of this review wasn't enough to deter you from seeing this movie, the fact that I just ruined the ending for you is. All you losers who emailed me after I ripped apart the last cinematic train wreck trying to defend the movie with promises of "all the questions" being answered in the final chapter of this trilogy were wrong. Not just wrong like "oops, I'm a philosophy major," I mean wrong like you just invested your retirement in Enron.

Where to start? First, the good things about this movie:


-If you happen to be George Lucas, you can finally rest assured that you're no longer the only person in history to ruin an almost impossible-to-ruin sequel.
-Trinity dies.
-There was a preview for the new "Lord of the Rings" movie.

It took me literally 20 minutes to write that last paragraph because everything else about this movie was shitty, except for the special effects, which aren't as impressive as they used to be. There's something about seeing "bullet-time" special effects in Lebanese music videos that doesn't make it cool anymore.

The dialogue is tacky, not unlike a pregnant woman in a bathing suit (unless you're into that sort of thing, in which case you might find the dialogue strangely erotic). For example, any time a character asked the question "what do you want?" It was always answered with "the same thing you want." The pain you suffer during this movie registers somewhere between being jack-hammered in the face and having scissors jammed into your urethra:



I just remembered how boring this movie was and it's pissing me off. Then this dumb bitch sitting next to me kept getting excited and yelling at the screen "close the hatch, close the hatch!!! Don't let it get you!!!" Thanks moron, I'm sure the actors on screen will take note of that, because they're not just beams of light shot through a shitty projector in a shitty theater in shitty Utah. They should have called this movie The Matrix: Stupid Boring Dog Shit Part III. I give my word to retract 100% of my statements about this movie if the DVD is subtitled "stupid boring dog shit part III." It'll never happen.

Update: I've been getting quite a bit of email from people asking me to post a warning on my review if it includes any spoilers, so here you go: warning, this review contains spoilers.

I haven't seen Matrix: Reloaded or Matrix: Revolutions, nor do I plan on it anytime soon. The first Matrix was ok, but nothing great in my opinion. I've heard terrible reviews from a lot of people, so I won't waste any dinero on the movie....
