The Matrix is perhaps the most important (albeit over-the-top) science fiction movie of our time. While it has been blamed for the Columbine shooting and other horrors it actually sends a clear, important message that everyone needs to hear today: your reality is not what it seems.
Instead of giving up when they realize how bleak their reality truly is, the protagonists of The Matrix take on the seemingly impossible task of preserving true humanity for the sake of faith,love, and courage. These heroes follow their leader one step into the abyss at a time showing that these things are much more than words abused by televangelists, politicians, advertisers, and cult-leaders. They are the holy Trinity of human existence.
