It seems to me that the movie is a mix of Xian prophecy with Buddhist philosophy. Oh, and a dash of Hinduism for flavor.

I was watching the matrix tonight. I've seen the other two. The second was crap. The third? Well, the third was pretty much a cross of every religion on the planet. Kinda funny like that
I had a revelation tonight. Any mods readling, and the rest of you reading, are probably thinking this belongs in BTS. But I have a twist for y'all.
The next time you watch the matrix trilogy, look at it from a hindu perspective. My contention is that whoever wrote and directed (I don't keep up on these things, don't really care) the Martix trilogy was a hindu. Not only were they hindu, but they were trying to express their beliefs through the movie.
Throughout the movies there are numerous religios references. The first movie is veryvague, but as the trilogy goes on, it gets more specific. Look at the train scene with Neo, with they guy explaining hinduistic beilefs along with bhudist beilefs. The first one is vague, however, but the plan is there. It's exactly how I would go about bringing people to my beliefs without knowing. I would start with a hook and a worm, and then reel them in. Ask most movie buffs, the first MAtrix was phenominal, the second two were a joke. However, there are references in the first movie which reference the second two. There was a conscious plan there.
If you watch the movies through a hindu perspective, you'll understand where I'm coming from. They contend, in a way, that every religion is right, yet they're really being led by another something that none of us can see. Every religion is right........or wrong.
Obviously, I disagree with this, which may be why I saw that. My only request to y'all, especially TheNeo, just beause of his name, is that you watch the trilogy with this mentality. You might be shocked.
