Special Guest Review by Chris
- Matrix shows that when blacks and women (Morpheus and his crew) run the
show, progress is at a standstill. Even though they may be strong (a huge
advantage over the unaware masses of the Matrix as seen in the very
beginning). They may even have all the information (they know the truth and
how the matrix works) it isn’t until the white man (Neo) comes onto the
scene that the goal is accomplished. The movie has a soundtrack dominated by
the music of the young white youth. It’s hard-core head-banging rock and
it ROCKS! The makers must have been aware that rap "music" would
have severely detracted from the movie. Rap "music" also quickly
loses its replay value. White music (disco excluded), never loses its replay
value. The movie can be watched years from now and not have a passé feel to
- The cast includes:
- Neo: The white hero that shows how it is supposed to be
- Trinity: The white female who is in every mission in
the movie and falls for Neo. Shows that even when surrounded by diversity the
white male is the only one that will truly inspire love for a white woman.
- Morpheus: The black leader of the crew who never plays
part in a dangerous mission, except in the end and that wasn’t planned. He
parades around in black leather and shades playing the "cool" role.
In fact he’s much like the blacks of today who spend all their time building
that image of status when they truly have nothing.
- Tank & Dozer: Two black brothers born in the free
city of Zion. They show no ability to do anything but monitor the computers
and they lack the skills for that.
- Switch: A butchy looking white woman that plays
virtually no role in the movie. Possibly depicting the side of homosexuals.
- Mouse: He is the meek character. Never the less he’s
a white male that designs the training programs that are vital for
preparations on missions. Otherwise he is just a target for the SWAT team.
- Apoch: A Hispanic looking male that does nothing but
drive the car and play the disposable character. The immigrant depiction is
- The first scene has Trinity, a white woman, in the Matrix on a mission by
herself. Therefore she (the white woman) is the most competent one for the
- The agents detect Trinity even though the movie leads one to believe that
avoiding detection and detecting them, the agents, is possible. And who is
at the helm of the controls? Morpheus, the supposedly all knowing black guy.
This won’t be the first time he screws up.
- The policemen on the scene are all white and the neighborhood doesn’t
look like prime real estate. The computers know what the most likely
scenario should be for a realistic world or maybe the perfect world for
there are virtually no black faces in the entire movie.
- The Agents are the computers anti-virus program. Painting them white has
to coincide with the psyche of the masses caught in this web. They represent
authority with a calculating intelligence of the highest caliber. The well
being of the Matrix comes before the agent much like the patriotism of
whites. Only the intellect and might of the whites would have an impact of
fear and respect that the agent program needs to project. Blacks have always
been a self-serving race. They squandered centuries of trade with the
neighboring continents for trinkets and inferior weapons to show off or raid
their tribal neighbors. They themselves supplied the slave trade and were
the most vocal upon its demise. Every instance that civility has been shown
to them they have reverted back to barbaric antics, every time. To have the
agents black would not be believable, just laughable.
- Trinity, the white woman, without panic outmaneuvers the agents even
though they were merely twenty feet from her at the inception of chase.
- We meet Neo, a white guy, who has fallen asleep at his computer in his
never-ending thirst for knowledge. Stereotypical whites image that’s true.
His search is fruitful and is told to follow a girl with a tattoo.
- Neo meets Trinity at a nightclub. She turns out to be a very well known
hacker in the underground. This is an impressive show of intellect to Neo,
as it should be. She informs him that they want him to join.
- The next day he is late for work and apologizes to his boss. We find out
here that Neo is a competent software programmer, showing intellect, for a
very successful software company, showing high status in the workforce. Neo
is very smart, computer savvy and he is of course white.
- At his desk Neo receives a mobile phone via courier service warning him
that the agents are at the door, on his floor! Question is, why didn’t
they take him after the nightclub scene? Or… if there was enough time to
have a phone mailed to him to warn him of danger why not forewarn him sooner
some other way? Never the less Morpheus is in charge again in this scheme
that goes awry. Neo has two choices. One is to walk ten to fifteen feet on a
window ledge some sixty stories up with nothing to hold onto and wind gusts
blowing about or get caught. And Morpheus is still supposed to be seen as
the all-knowing genius? Sure, whatever.
- The agents take him, bug him and let him go. Neo wakes in his room and
answers the phone. It’s Morpheus! The agents just put a tracer in Neo. The
agents know, or at least highly suspect, Morpheus has, or is, contacting
Neo. Logic concludes the phone would be tapped. Why doesn’t the
"great" Morpheus mail him another phone (mobile phones are harder
to be traced as logically deduced from the office scene)? He then tells Neo
that he has spent his whole life looking for Neo. Here it shows that no
matter how much his reputation and crew revere Morpheus he knows he is
incapable of obtaining the mental level needed to overcome the matrix. We
hear variations of this throughout the rest of the movie for Neo is
- Now Neo is "The One" and the group responsible in retrieving
him, the savior of mankind, are a duo of white people with a Hispanic
chauffeur. Again, whites are the only one responsible enough for the mission
at hand. They debug Neo and take him to Morpheus.
- Morpheus is now seen and he’s black. He gives Neo a chance to back out
from knowing the truth. Neo swallows a pill to learn the truth. The white
mans thirst for knowledge. The pill disrupts his biological readings in the
computer mainframe and from this the crack team of computer hackers, all
white at the controls, pinpoint the location of his pod.
- Neo wakes in his pod and is dispelled then picked up by the gang. A plaque
is seen showing when this hovercraft was made, 2000 AD, and by what country,
the United States. Whites dominate science and engineering therefore their
technologies were invented by whites. The only weapon against computer ‘sentinels’
is an EMP (electric magnetic pulse). What the ship was originally made for
we may never know. Since better weapons are not available we can only
surmise that the manufacturing process is not possible or the white man is
absent from Zion; the free city.
- There are two brothers, Tank and Dozer, that are black on this craft who
are free of terminals on themselves because they were born outside the
Matrix. They run the computers on missions into the Matrix and are as inept
as Morpheus on them. These two brothers are in their thirties at least. That
shows us that for thirty plus years they, the blacks, have progressed
nowhere. They’re wearing scavenged clothing (judged by its looks) and they
eat that gray gruel. All the technology to enter the Matrix had to be
scavenged as well recruiting the computer savvy whites to rig it all
together. The device that takes the bug out of Neo defies logic but whites
were operating it. Then again the inventor that made it could have been
killed shortly thereafter.
- Morpheus informs Neo on the reality of the situation. Artificial
intelligence was created and it took over the world. The premise is a
pessimistic outcome of the technology but it makes a good movie. The
computer system has placed the setting at the height of white civilization,
thus far. To placate the masses they must be in a comfortable setting. What
is more comfortable than the state white civilization has progressed to? You
may ask why then is there a rebellion? There are references in the movie to
sensing that ‘something’ is just not right and they need to seek the ‘truth’.
Letting us all know that nothing is perfect.
- Neo is then seen loading up on martial arts data for ten hours straight.
Morpheus wants a show of knowledge on the subject from Neo and so they join
in battle in the computer. Morpheus seems to be getting the better of Neo at
first as he explains the environment in which they are now in. Morpheus is
regarded as the most knowledgeable on the goings on of the Matrix yet still
is unable to master its capabilities. He knows that Neo, the white guy, is
far more capable of the thought processes needed to take full advantages of
the Matrix. The superior Aryan mind beats Morpheus. They then go to jumping
across building and Neo fails. We learn though, that everyone fails in this
category the first time.
- We then see Cypher, the traitor, making deals with the agents. Who can
blame him when you hear his perspective of the situation? Morpheus has
surely hyped everyone they’ve brought into reality and Neo up to this
point has done only one extra-ordinary feat, beat Morpheus in the martial
arts. A lucky win could be the reason as far as he is concerned.
- Morpheus insists on a trip to see the oracle. They get there and enter the
living room where the future potentials of "The Ones" sit in
practice; all white children catered to by black females (reminiscent of the
elite in the pre-civil war South). The oracle, it turns out, is a
fortuneteller and black. Morpheus’ primitive beliefs caused them to risk
their lives to visit a voodoo shaman. She isn’t helpful at all in the eyes
of Neo. They must have recruited her from a 900 number tarot card company.
- Upon returning from the oracle the black guy at the controls never sees an
ambush in the making as FBI agents have surely readied their positions to
storm the building outside, as the rebels climb the stairs inside. Then Neo
is the one to catch the déjà vu incident not the black guy at the
controls. Even as Neo brings it to attention Trinity is the first to be
alarmed of danger, not the "great" Morpheus. And the black guy at
the controls is still stumped he only yells ambush after the obvious. Mouse
is slaughtered. The rest hide behind the walls.
- The group is detected and an agent grabs Neo. Morpheus subjects himself to
a good ass whooping by the agent and the swat team after pulling the agent
off Neo. Don’t fight white authority. Neo and the rest get away.
- Cypher lucks out and returns to base first then appears to kill the two
blacks at the controls. He then proceeds to kill the team off by
pre-maturely disconnecting them. Up to this point at his vantage point Neo
is still just Morpheus hype, their narrow escape was in no way in part to
Neo heroics. As for the rest of them he could be tired of their humiliating
display of blind loyalty and idolizing of Morpheus the black guy. Cypher
shows his disgust with Morpheus first and retires from the idea because he
knows the agents are interrogating him. He then kills the Hispanic (Apoch)
and the dyke (Switch) depicting what little use immigrants and homosexuals
are. But alas one black guy gets back up and kills Cypher then brings back
Neo and Trinity. They had to get back somehow.
- The agents interrogate Morpheus and complain of his smell. A good slap in
his face after the "you all look alike" comment from Morpheus upon
- Neo decides to go back and get Morpheus. Trinity tells Neo that his plan
has never been tried before. What plan did Neo, the white guy, come up with
as soon as he gets in charge? Go on the offensive! You mean the "great
Morpheus" never had the gumption or should we say lack of tactical
skills, to take an offensive position? Even though he shows a pompous
display of martial arts know-how in the training program with Neo.
- Neo and Trinity kick some computer butt and get Morpheus back. They retire
to a subway where Morpheus and Trinity make it back. Neo has it out with the
agent and wins big time. The agent takes over another body and the chase
commences, as Neo needs to get back to hatch another plan. Again with
Morpheus and the black guy at the controls they fail to be able to warn Neo
that the Agent is in the room where the phone is. Neo is shot and killed.
- Computer sentinels are tearing the Hovercraft apart when they learn Neo is
dead. The crew goes into shock and it is realized that the crews’ loyalty
has switched to Neo, the great white reality. Trinity lovingly hovers over
Neo’s body and tells of her oracle premonition that the one she falls in
love with will be "The One". Now the fortune teller prediction
comes true due in part that the oracle knew that Trinity was a strong
intelligent white woman and wouldn’t fall for a minority. She would desire
a strong intelligent white male to sire her children. The oracle would also
be aware, as was Morpheus that "The One" would have to be white
because all other races aren’t capable of the task needed to be "The
one". So Trinity actually falls prey to what comes natural. That is
whites falling in love with whites. Neo with his superior white brain
overcomes the façade of the non-real and returns to life, kills the agent
and returns to the ship. The EMP destroys the sentinels. Neo the hero.
- Neo, now the leader, shows his superior thought capabilities and that he
has no fear of the agents then shows that flying is possible. To be
Only you can
