Not just an action flick, this film is replete with
spiritual metaphors and subtle messages. Neo (an
acronym for One) finds himself falling down the
proverbial rabbit hole as he learns the true nature of
He is believed to be the one who can break the system
(aka The Matrix) but he has to go through many
trials and tribulations before he can even come close
to reaching that state. Some would say this film shows what it may take to release the ego, but you will have to make that discernment yourself, if you so desire.
If you don’t like action movies or violence, then you can
either fast-forward through some of those scenes or put it on mute and read the subtitles. Actually, after you watch it at least once, I recommend re-watching it with the sub-titles because there’s so much spiritual depth to this movie it’s nearly impossible to get it all in just one viewing, let alone several.
This movie is definitely one of the best-kept secrets for spiritual movies in the last decade. Be sure to also check out the other two movies as they go deeper down the proverbial rabbit hole.
