The Matrix – Is this really religion related

Some people may not think that The Matrix has nothing to do with religion and is just an action packed film with fighting and guns. But when we look at what the film’s storey there are a lot of similarities between The Matrix and religion. If we look at the character Neo he is described as the one in religious words he is the next messiah and dies for the people’s sins and then is resurrected when he comes back to life. There are many religious symbols within the film one example might be at the start of the film were Neo gives a valuable disk to a caller and the man shouts out “Hallelujah!” and says “You’re my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ.”

Although people may think this film is more about Christianity it is debatable over what religion it is trying to represent but overall this film has different religions put into it which makes it unique and can be interpreted by many different religious believers.

So if you haven’t seen it or you saw it but didn’t get the message I would recommend watching this film
