Me? An Action Figure?

Why am I a sucker for these silly things? My 8 year old daughter has three diary's filled with drawings. The only thing she has ever written in any of them is "Daddy is funny."

You scored as Neo, the "One", Neo is the computer hacker-turned-Messiah of the Matrix. He leads a small group of human rebels against the technology that controls them. Neo doubts his ability to lead but doesn't want to disappoint his friends. His goal is for a world where all men know the Truth and are free from the bonds of the Matrix.

Why Neo? I suppose it's the geeky, computer-hacking, martial arts, reluctant hero aspects of the character that I most closely identify with.

Actually, I had the funnest time trying to analyze the worldview analogy of the Matrix trilogy without going back to the writers' own comments. It's such a mixture of things and the presuppositional foundations aren't very clear. It's not worth my comments here, but the sci-fi action aspects with ground-breaking cinematographic special effects and a unique context for character development made for fun-to-watch movies. As for reality, I wouldn't want to fight with that trench coat on. It may prevent one from broadcasting strikes, but it could be used to bind the movements of the wearer even by an opponent with average skills.
