This 2004 documentary, Philosophy and the Matrix, gives a survey of commentaries from numerous academic philosophers regarding what is being presented in The Matrix. Since the Matrix metaphor is used frequently here, it might be well to watch this, especially touching on Neo's aspect as The One, a gnostic vision of the Savior. And then how does this compare to the orthodox Roman conception of the same? According to the seeming consensus, Neo and associates, are struggling against the Matrix's Vanity and Corruption, which has put everyone else to sleep. And thus willing to trade reality for an illusion of paradise. But there is so much more, a tour de force of philosophical concepts.
