The Matrix

We had to watch this movie in Bible class. I know you’re probably wondering why…so I’m going to enlighten you. We were given a sheet of 2 different worldviews & what they believe. Finding them was our goal. After finding them we had to write a 4 page paper on them. It was pretty hard! Now that we’ve cleared it up, let’s get to the review shall we? It’s rated R for violence and language. It stars Keanu Reeves as Neo, Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, Carrie-Ann Moss as Trinity, Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith, Gloria Foster as the Oracle, Joe Pantoliano as Cypher, Marcus Chong as Tank, Julian Arahanga as Apoc, Matt Doran as Mouse, Belinda McClory as Switch, and Anthony Ray Parker as Dozer. Neo is the alias that Thomas Anderson uses when hacking. He gets paid by people to hack and burn copies of different softwares. One day his computer starts typing by itself while Neo is sleeping. It tells him to “follow the white rabbit”. A minute later a knock on his door is heard. He answers it & it’s a group of people who purchased software from him. One of the girls turns around & you see a white rabbit tattoo on her shoulder. Neo follows as he’s told. They go to a club where he meets Trinity. She was sent by Morpheus to bring Neo to him. When they meet, Neo is given a choice of 2 pills…red or blue. One reveals the truth to him while the other returns him to his bed & he forgets everything. He takes the one that reveals the truth to him. He’s taken out of the Matrix & into the real world by processes that I don’t care to discuss because it is quite graphic and gross in parts. Morpheus then trains Neo using software that can be “downloaded” into the individual by shock treatment…that’s Tank’s job. If you die in the Matrix, you die in the real world. The rest of the movie, Neo tries to come to a higher knowledge that he is “the One”. There are some shooting scenes & some pretty awesome effects! It’s rated R for a reason though. The movie made me think! If you want to think, see this movie!
