The Red Pill or the Blue?

  • Dec 7, 2005
Rating:
+5
Keanu Reeves plays Neo Anderson (a name which means "new man"). Is he living "for real"? Or is he caught up in a computer program that dictates his reality?

He has a choice between the blue pill or the red pill: will Neo "wake up" to the truth despite the possibility that it will shatter reality as he knows it? Or will he choose to remain asleep and oblivious? This is an overtly New Age theme: will humanity evolve past illusion and conditioned responses?

Other fascinating mystical themes include the nature of reality and truth, Biblical themes such as Messianic salvation, spiritual re-birth, and resurrection.

Replete with major eye-candy and stunning fight scenes, this is a movie heavy on the symbolic--especially concerning the names. (Trinity, Zion, Neo Anderson, Morpheous, etc.)

This is one movie that never gets old!
