TRON: Legacy 3D

A sequel to the 1982 Disney sci-fi film Tron, that pioneered CGI animation. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges, returning from the original), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), Sam and Kevin embark on a life-and-death journey across that black cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

Looks great. Sounds great. So what?

Nice visuals, cool fashion, gorgeous models and a slick soundtrack make for a great music video... But a film needs a little more. Anyway, Jeff Bridges is his reliable self (and his younger self too for that matter) and aside from that and the aforementioned music, fashion and design, this bored the pants off me... But then, I thought all the STREET...

So Awesome

The effects are awesome in this movie! If you want action packed computer geeks playing arcade games this movie is for you. dont expect an oscar winning storyline but this movie isnt about the storyline its about entertainment for those who watched the first tron and reliving their childhood or showing the next generation a fun blasting entertaining movie

Aaron Yaps needs a nap

I found this to be a thoroughly entertaining movie as did my partner. While it's no Shakespearian bore fest that Aaron loves it was a welcome break from reality. After reading A.Y's snarly attack I thought bugger it I'll see it on the IMAX in 3D and was rewarded with a great follow-on from the original that I saw decades ago. Ignore the flicks review -...

Definitely watchable

Very watchable but overall the film had real potential that it didn't quite rise to meet. The story was very much in keeping with the original film I thought, although the effects were good and the visuals strong. I thought that (like the original) the storyline lacked intensity. The soundtrack has been a great hit at home though, I have been hearing it...

wanted more

For what it was I really loved this film. I didn't expect a complex plot or lots of computer jargon so was happy with what there was. I went for the FX, music and awesome sets. I was not let down by these. The 3D was OK. more light cycles and fights in the battle zones please. Jeff was funny. totally recommend.

What film have some people been watching?

I don't understand where reviews under 3 stars are coming from. This film was visually arresting with a awesome plot that starts to connect a bit more on a human level, something that the original film didn't do, though i guess that's one of the messages. I think plot-wise, a lot more was at stake, and it made it a compelling watch. It's safe to say, I was...

Bowie would have made this film.

As the film developed you could start to see a terrible plot unfolding. Oh but he games, so many so fast, what more could one hope for. But that slowly dropped off. There was only one single light cycle scene. There was a character named Zeus, who seem like he was trying so hard to be David Bowie but was not quite getting there. Verdict, it didn't need...

While 21st-century effects and a cutting-edge dance score make this a stunning virtual ride, the underlying concept feels as far-fetched as ever.

A sequel with far less color and cinematic imagination, and many more bells and whistles, including a freakishly special-effected Mr. Bridges going mano a mano in cyberspace with the grizzled real deal. Twice as much Jeff Bridges does not necessarily mean twice as much entertainment - bummer.

Tron: Legacy, a sequel made 28 years after the original but with the same actor, is true to the first film: It also can't be understood, but looks great. Both films, made so many years apart, can fairly lay claim to being state of the art. This time that includes the use of 3-D.

A triumph of art direction, sound design and Gallic phat beats, but could do with a script upgrade and fun.exe patch.

The light cycles, the killer frisbees, the vinyl body suits, the god-awful dialogue, the cod mysticism, basically everything 12-year-old boys of all ages loved the first time around is back.
