Well, for one thing "1984" and "The Matrix" have very much in common.<br><br>1. Both have society of oppressed people.<br>2. Big Brother is evident in both books.<br>3. Power. Much of both books is spent on "Power". Who will be in power of people and society, the world.<br>4. Each story has one character who alters the direction of the society.<br>5. Each story has a battle between good and evil.<br>6. Each story has very negative opinions about technology and the future of the world.<br>7. Each story has political battles as well.<br><br>There are differences of course, but that is because George Orwell's "1984" is a more pessimistic look at the future of mankind and "The Matrix" has a brighter view.

Currently i am doing an essay for my liturature class and i am comparing "Enemy of the state" to the 1984. I believe this movie has more similarities than the matrix. If you comparing the matrix with 1984, then you have go into philosophy ( Rene Descartes).
