  摘要 The Matrix trilogy is about mankind’s revolutions against the hegemony of technology. Subversive political messages against technology and current capitalist system are abundant in the trilogy. However, the trilogy itself is the very product of the most advanced technology of Hollywood cinema, a giant capitalist system. Therefore, the complex relationship between humanity and technology along with the political messages are the aims of this thesis. Starting with the visuality in the trilogy, this thesis demonstrates how the pastiches of popular culture elements are achieved by advanced technology. And The Matrix trilogy as a cyberpunk work in the late nineties fuses traditional American cyberpunk with Japanese cyberpunk. This notion of fusion is also demonstrated in the narrative structure of the trilogy. Given the narrative structure of a classical Western, the trilogy relies on a composite hero, who has qualities from the opposite sides, to solve the ideological conflicts. Besides the conflicts between mankind and technology, the conflicts between humanity and capitalism are also solved by Neo the composite hero. Therefore, The Matrix trilogy provides no escape from the matrix of technology and capitalism.
