|Which is the better film?|
|The Matrix||Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl|
Each is the opening installment to a popular film series, and a watershed film for its genre. Each takes the classic "Hero's Journey" template as it centers around a young hero (Thomas "Neo" Anderson/William "Will" Turner) who initially appears unassuming but comes to learn the truth about his origins when taken under the wing of a ship-captain (Morpheus/Jack Sparrow) who he follows on the path to his destiny. It would turn out that he is vital to the conflict at hand.
