The 9 Elements of film: The Matrix
The Matrix is centered around the main protagonist Neo. Neo is in his late twenties, with a nine to five job working at a software company as a programmer. He has always felt something just wasn't right about the world, and he felt it goes further than the injustices of worldwide hunger and war. One late night while coding some not so legal material for a friend he gets a chat request from someone with the sign name of Trinity.

Morpheus, one of the main characters of the story believes "The One" is Neo. This film gives the main protagonist some fairly short and silly lines. But they fit well with his character. While I do not think Keanu Reeves is in any way a good actor, he fits...
