In Italy there has always been talk of The Matrix being a blatant rip off of this:

I don't know if it's true since i have never read it, but Disegni and Caviglia wanted to sue The Super Troon Bros after the first movie came out, they didn't because they couldn't afford the legal fees.
The problem with all of the plagiarism accusations that are thrown at The Matrix is its ideas come from a wide variety of different sources, and the core of its storytelling is taken from the hero's journey structure that has existed for thousands of years. It's a lot like Star Wars in that regard; similar to how George Lucas took elements from Akira Kurosawa, Flash Gordon, old Westerns, and other stuff he liked and shoved it all into the hero's journey mold, the Wachowski brothers took elements from Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, anime (particularly the 1995 Ghost in the Shell film), and other stuff they liked and shoved it all into the hero's journey mold.

The story of the Wachowskis' is the Homo's Journey.

How do you make a sequel to perfection?

Some Slav sued WB over this movie. The director, as far as I know, didn't troon out over it.

By fucking everything up and making it as Current Year as possible. Which in this case would ruin the entire message of the original.

Possibly the greatest scene in the history of cinema.
