This is a surprisingly good book, vastly better than LaVelle's Reality Within the Matrix, though they are both books that basically draw upon the movie(s) for evangelical purposes.
If you are from a Christian background, this book will give you a take on the movie from a reasonably sophisticated theological viewpoint. It is not at all like the dumbed-down fundamentalist exhortations of LaVelle's book.
If the evangelism - even this kind of sophisticated evangelism - annoys you, but you want to learn more about the Matrix movies, this book is still worth a try. It has a lot of information about other belief systems, philosophy, mythology and so on, used in a way that genuinely engages with the detail of the first movie and (though to a much lesser extent) The Matrix Reloaded.
There are better Matrix books around than this one - e.g. Yeffeth's Taking the Red Pill - but The Gospel Reloaded is not a waste of time by any means. Also, it will only take you a couple of hours to read, since it is relatively short and the style is very clear, interesting and easy to follow.
