One Baaad Messiah

E. J. Park has done a brilliant piece on Neo’s qualities as messiah. Our black-clad Matrix-redeemer is someone even St. Peter could love—and much more appealing than Jesus. “Neo’s reluctance and kick-ass power are the perfect messianic combination.” (E. J. Park, “One Baaad Messiah: Neo-Christian longings and the satisfaction of kung-fu saviors,” Killing the Buddha, May 2003)
