Matrix Reloaded vs TRON

Hi! Don’t know how many of you have had the same feeling, but the more I look at the Matrix (specially reloaded), the more I see parallels with the TRON movie (Neo=Tron, Agent Smith = Sark, MCP = Architect, the love of the hero dies and gets back to life by ‘the one’, control systems, the progression of the quest, the encounters, etc.)

Sure, Matrix has more abstaction levels, a far bigger cast of characters, tons of loose strings, multiple philosophical parallels, etc. I just hope that all of this doesn’t end up like a (mad) “game” or computerized scenario (Matrix = SimLife or SimHumanity) explanation…

Really curious on how the third installment will deliver…even though there is speculation for a fourth one…time will tell!
