    the movie The Matrix. However, the work of Plato, can be seen on having the largest impact on the movie.

    Christian Symbolism in The Matrix After doing some thorough research about The Matrix and it’s parallelistic comparison to Christianity, I discovered that there are many similarities and symbols liking the two stories, the first one being Neo and the comparison to Jesus. Neo is comparable to Jesus every since birth, where he literally born into the real world from the womblike incubator that he's existed in all his life. This reminded me of the “Virgin Birth” of the Messiah. Neo’s real name is…

The denial of truth and reality is used by one’s self-interest to protect and retain their dreams and illusions from being destroyed. The protagonists in the movies “The Matrix” and the “The Truman Show” perceive who they truly are and realize their purpose in life because they choose to discover the truth rather than accepting a delusion.…
