TRON: Legacy

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.

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.

It all ends up being a half-hour too much of a just okay thing.

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.

Minor bugs mar slick sound and vision, says our reviewer.
