In Star Wars we also have "The One" (Anakin Skywalker) with special abilities and a prophecy that he will "bring balance". (The Jedi thinks it means he will defeat the Dark side once and for all.)
In Terminator we also have the same story of machines with artificial Intelligence, waging war against the human race. Another dark and clouded future where it's cold and dirty and humans fight desperately for survival.
So please vote guys and girls. Are The Matrix closer to Star Wars (Neo, and all about The One) or closer to Terminator? (war against the machines)
"A triumph equalled only by it's monumental failure"
It's closer to more programs, cartoons, books, historic events/places/time than you and we will ever know. See that room the Architect is sitting in, well watch Transformers: The Movie and wait till it shows a shot of the interior of Unicron.
yeah you can tell the directors grew up in the same era as myself...watching HeMan, Tranformers, M.A.S.K., GI Joe, Silverhawks, Starcom, Heathcliff, Looney Tunes, Super Friends, Justice League, Space Ghost, lol
I love all this stuff.
Yeah once you mentioned something about unicron it hit me...its a lot like that.
ya, with star wars, by episode 4, luke is more like the one, and in Matrix you know only One one, except when the architects says that there has been five more other Ones, but yeah its more like terminator and fighting machines

Has anyone here seen Lain? It's this japanese cyberpunk miniseries. You all should check it out if you get a chance. The WB's said that it was one of their influences for THE MATRIX. And with that I must go now.
i just thought of something, the story in the terminator is machines taking over earth.... but what is the story of the matrix..... machines taking over the earth! that would be cool if they tied the two movies together, it could work!
