Known Trivia

  • Before Garrett Hedlund was cast as Sam Flynn, other actors considered included Chris Pine, Ryan Gosling and Michael Stahl-David.
  • Douglas TenNapel wrote a treatment for a Tron sequel called “Tron: Into The Machine”.
  • In a reference to the first film, a song by the band Journey, “Worlds Apart (Separate Ways)”, appears in the film. The songs in the first film included “Only Solutions” and “1990’s Theme”
  • Shooting the film lasted only 64 days. Post-production, due to the heavy special effects, required 68 weeks.
  • The original character of Yori does not appear in the sequel. According to online media Sci Fi Wire: “Fans have been lobbying for actor Cindy Morgan to be in the movie”. There are active campaigns online, such as “Yori Lives” on Facebook, which is independent of Cindy Morgan herself. She did, however, make an appearance in character as Lora at the WonderCon viral event. It was revealed that Lora had married Alan Bradley.
  • The building featured as Flynn’s Arcade in TRON was in reality the historic Hull Building in Culver City, CA. As of 2009, when this sequel was made, the location looked very different from its appearance in the original film. So, the movie makers opted to painstakingly recreate the original interior and a portion of the exterior in Vancouver instead, with the rest of the location filled in with CGI. The exterior even includes the “Space Paranoids” billboard on the roof, but with the addition of the “TRON” logo – in-universe, TRON is an arcade game that Flynn created after the events of the first movie.
  • The wardrobe budget for this film was $13 million. One custom suit alone for the racers cost $60,000.
  • As seen in the theatrical trailer, Sam’s childhood bedroom features an original 1980’s Macintosh computer, toys from the original TRON, and a poster for The Black Hole (another film from the same era as TRON, and a similar Disney foray into science fiction with cutting-edge at the time special effects, including computer animation see trivia for The Black Hole). Director Joseph Kosinski’s next project is a remake of The Black Hole for Disney. The film also ties into the history of the “TRON” films because originally, for the first film, Disney wanted proof that Steven Lisberger could not only direct, but proof that the back-lighting effects to have the live action characters glow worked. Disney lent Lisberger and his company props and costumes from “The Black Hole” (which had recently wrapped) to use for their test film.
  • The popular TRON arcade game (a tie-in to the original film) makes an appearance. However, the console shown is credited to the in-universe software company Encom, rather than the real creators Bally-Midway.
  • After years in “development hell”, the first indication that Disney was serious about creating a sequel was the showing of a “VFX Concept Test” teaser at Comic-Con 2008. The teaser showed the updated light-cycles, and revealed Jeff Bridges as Flynn and CLU. The title revealed was “TR2N”, but by the time the teaser was released (officially) online several months later, the title had been changed to “TRON: Legacy”.

Goofs: Continuity: When Clu is talking to Castor/Zuse in the bar, Castor/Zuse's skin changes from blue to Caucasian and back again between shots.

Plot: The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father's creation turned bad and a unique ally who was born inside the digital domain of The Grid. Full summary »  »

Story: Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, 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 20 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.Written by ZootCatchy  

Synopsis

Synopsis: The film opens with a flashback to 1989 as Kevin Flynn – now the CEO of ENCOM – tells his son Sam a story about his adventures in the Grid and about how he, Tron and Clu discovered something amazing and miraculous. Sam asks about it but is told to wait for next time as Kevin leaves for work. It then cuts to a montage of events and news reports about Kevin’s disappearance, which has not only jeopardized ENCOM’s future, but orphaned Sam.

In the present day, the now-adult Sam breaks into the ENCOM Tower and , despite the efforts of the board – including the son of Ed Dillinger (uncredited Cillian Murphy) steals Encom’s new software, releasing it online. After being chased to the top of the tower by a security guard, Sam reveals himself and attempts to freefall off the tower only for his parachute to snag on a traffic light, and he is arrested shortly after freeing himself.

Sam eventually makes bail and returns to his apartment and is met by Alan Bradley, who tells him about a page he received from his Dad’s office in the arcade. Reluctantly following the tip, Sam locates a hidden doorway behind the arcade’s Tron game which leads him to a secret workshop. He begins searching through his father’s computer and unknowingly activites a digitizing ray which transports into the digital world. As the confused young man takes his leave and steps out onto the Grid, he is spotted by a Recognizer, and the programs within assign him to the Games.

He is taken down to the Armoury Sirens, to be clad in armour and given an Identity Disc. Upon arriving in the Disc Wars Arena he narrowly manages to survive and spends his final round battling against Rinzler, who recognizes Sam as a User after seeing him bleed. Clu, who has been watching the events, has Sam brought to his lair. As the two talk, Sam believes he is speaking to his father. However, Clu denies this and has him sent to the Lightcycle arena while a mysterious figure watches them.

Sam is teamed with several other programs in the ensuing race againt Clu and his followers, but ends up as the sole survivor of his group. He is saved from deresolution by the stranger who – while driving away in a Light Runner – introduces herself as Quorra. She takes him to a secret hideaway "off the grid" where Sam is reunited with his father. Over dinner, Kevin answers Sam’s biggest question, regarding where he went all those years ago. Kevin relates how he was able to access The Grid, and brought along Tron, as well as Clu to help him create his perfect world. Kevin also reveals that the miracle he mentioned before his disappearance was the birth of ISOs – a brand new form of program created by the Grid itself. However, altercations arose when Clu felt ‘imperfections’ were rampant on The Grid. Clu then proceeded to take over by ambushing Kevin and Tron. Tron protected Kevin, but was derezzed in the process. Kevin then escaped into seclusion, but also was witness to Clu destroying the ISOs, as he believed they were not part of the perfect plan.

Later, Sam argues with his dad as he believes they can still make their way to the portal – which will remain open for eight Grid-world hours – and return home, but Kevin objects, citing that this is exactly what Clu would want: a prime oppurtunity to steal Kevin’s Identity Disc and use the information stored inside to manipulate the portal. Kevin is also certain that it was Clu who sent the page to Alan.

Realzing that Sam is frustrated at being unable to help, Quorra tells him of a program called Zuse who could be of assistance. His mind made up, Sam takes off in Kevin’s Lightcycle and keeps guards off his trail by handing the lightcycle away to another program as a distraction. Unfortunately, Clu traces the vehicle’s point of origin and investigates Kevin’s hideout only to find it empty.

As Sam explores the city he crosses paths with the Armoury Siren known as Gem, who offers to take him to where he needs to go. He accepts and they arrive at the End of Line Club. Gem calls on club owner Castor who reveals himself to be Zuse. However he betrays Sam to Clu and although Quorra and Kevin intervene, Quorra’s arm is derezzed in the ensuing brawl, Kevin’s disk is stolen as the trio escapes, and the club is ultimately bombed when Clu double-crosses Castor and Gem.

Kevin and Sam continue to argue over what to do next and decide to take a Solar Sailer to the portal. As Kevin reconstructs Quorra’s arm he reveals she is in fact the last ISO. As Sam and Kevin bond with each other, Quorra reboots her system and finds out that Kevin saved her.

The trio eventually find the Rectifying Room and realize Clu is making an army by forcibly reprogramming programs to escape into the Real World to "perfect" it. As they try to find their way out, Kevin recognises Rinzler as his old friend Tron, who was not derezzed, but has lost his memories after being reprogrammed by Clu. Quorra then passes the men her disc and distracts Rinzler so that they can track down Clu. Meanwhile Clu has Kevin’s disc in place and as he is revealing his grand plan to his army, he is presented with – and insulted by – Quorra. Upon recognizing her as an ISO, Clu dismisses her after mentioning he has something special in mind for her.

After the Flynns contemplate their next move, Kevin seeks transport for them to escape in while Sam makes his way up to Clu’s lair and takes Kevin’s disk. After a failed attempt to quiz Clu’s henchman Jarvis on Quorra’s whereabouts, Rinzler returns to the lair with Quorra and engages Sam once again, with Sam emerging victorious after knocking Rinzler off a ledge. Sam and Quorra use a digital wing-like parachute to make their escape and meet up with Kevin in the Light Jet hangar. Clu then finds the disk gone and derezzes Jarvis for letting them escape before he and his henchmen give chase in their own Light Jets.

Sam is sent to the turret of the jet and manages to blast everyone except Rinzler and Clu out of the sky. As he is ordered to fire at Sam, Rinzler begins to regain his memories of being Tron and turns against Clu with the battle cry "I Fight for the Users!" As the pair battle in mid-air, Clu wins and flies after the heroes once again while Tron is left sinking to the bottom of the Sea of Simulation, being restored to himself in the process and regaining his white circuit coloration.

As the trio head toward the portal, Kevin asks Quorra to do something for him. Upon reaching their destination they are confronted by Clu, who insits he was simply following the directive Kevin programmed into him: to make a perfect world. Kevin rebutts, stating that he made a mistake in doing this and apologizes to Clu for realizing too late that they couldn’t perfect the Grid. However, Clu attacks him and the bridge to the portal breaks off, separating the group. Clu then tries to steal Kevin’s disk but is surprised to find Quorra’s disk, and chases after Sam and Quorra as they activate the portal. Just before Clu reaches them, Kevin absorbs his counterpart into himself, destroying them both and engulfing the Grid in a tremendous explosion.

Back in the real world at long last, Sam keeps the master key in the form of a microchip-shaped necklace and pages Alan, telling him he was right about everything and will take control of ENCOM with Alan as chairman. As he leaves the arcade, he finds Quorra outside and she asks what they will do now. Sam then takes her on a ride on his motorcycle, showing her the real world.

    TRON: Legacy has been one of the most promoted films of the year. Witha monstrous budget (around $200 million) and reports saying that Disneyis worried that the film isn't tracking as well as they'd hoped, theinitial thought process from these rumors is that the TRON sequel willopen to a disappointing first place weekend much like the most recentChronicles of Narnia film. As of this writing, I haven't gotten aroundto seeing the original film. I wanted to, but thanks to Disney it waspretty much pulled from every retail store imaginable whether youwanted to rent or purchase the film at least until next year. The urgeto see TRON: Legacy didn't really sink in until around the time thethird trailer was released. While the Daft Punk score has interested mefrom the beginning, TRON: Legacy just seemed like another overratedpiece of eye candy that fan boys were getting excited about. The thingabout first impressions though is that they always have the opportunityto be wrong.

    The glorified TRON sequel is getting a lot of mixed reviews from mostmovie critics. The problem seems to lie within the way the film iswritten and its screenplay. To tell the truth, you don't see a movielike this for a great story alone. The special effects are the mainattraction and boy, do they deliver. The way programs disintegrate whenthey're disposed of, the light cycle battles, airborne chases, and themany fight sequences in the film are just a small example of thedazzling display of some of the most exceptional and impressive specialeffects ever seen in a cinematic feature. As with most films that havebeen presented in 3D lately, the 3D effect probably isn't necessary toenjoy a film of this magnitude. It'll be just as entertaining if yousave yourself the extra $4 and see it in a conventional theater.

    The writing didn't seem as bothersome as much as other reports say. Itcertainly wasn't the best, but it seemed like enough to add just theright amount of depth to TRON: Legacy and give it more of a backgroundthan most films revolving around spectacular special effects. Therewere a few lines that bothered me. The main one being when Alan firstvisits Sam and Sam says something about his father probably eitherbeing dead or chilling in Costa Rica…or both. Wait, what? It justgives you this Weekend at Bernie's flashback with Bernie being replacedwith Kevin Flynn's limp carcass. Some of the lines Jeff Bridgesmuttered just made him seem way too much like The Dude from The BigLebowski, which seems awesome but really has no place in the TRONuniverse. Saying things like, "Check this out," or, "Radical, man,"followed by that stoner laugh of his really didn't help matters much.The weak points of the way the film is written are rectified with theway the film never lets your attention out of its choke-hold. You'll bedrawn to the screen the entire film; that's practically a guarantee.The right mindset for a film like this can make or break your opinionof the film. If you don't have inflated expectations and don't expectmuch more than impressive special effects, then you'll probably walkaway pleasantly surprised. I actually had a similar mindset duringAvatar, which seemed to also suffer/take advantage of groundbreakingspecial effects being more consuming than the story and had a similarresult.

    The cast is about as developed as can be expected. The real star of thefilm is Garrett Hedlund, who does a pretty decent job of carrying thefilm and being generally astonished that not only was his father alivebut the extraordinary world he always talked about actually existed.Jeff Bridges' performance isn't nearly as strong as his portrayal ofRooster Cogburn in True Grit, but he does have his moments. He seems toshine during his reunion with Hedlund and his strongest scenes are withHedlund alone while being rather flat the rest of the time. OliviaWilde's Quorra is interesting, as well. There's an intriguing twist toher character, but her fascination and curiosity revolving around theworld Sam is from is what gives her character heart. Michael Sheen didseem a bit too over the top at times as Castor, but that may have beenthe point. The biggest surprise was seeing Cillian Murphy cameo. Givenhis strong outings in films like Sunshine, Peacock, and Inception, itjust left me wanting to see more of his character in futureinstallments assuming this film does well enough to warrant a sequel(or sequels).

    TRON: Legacy is certainly the special effects extravaganza it's beenmade out to be all year. Its fantastic effects certify the sequel asbeing the most visually appealing film of the year. While the writingof the film isn't quite as polished as the special effects, therecertainly seems to be a good enough balance to keep the film afloat anddeliver an extremely entertaining way to kill two hours. As far as eyecandy goes, TRON: Legacy is an incredible and all around awesomeexperience.

    And it was worth it.

    I was 9 years old when I saw TRON in a dingy cinema in Fareham, I washooked then, and I always dreamed they would make a sequel.

    I was seriously worried though, I mean, Escape from New York wasanother of my favourite movies and I got all excited about the sequelto that… and left the cinema mortified…

    Not this time.

    This was like an old friend coming home.

    There are a lot of comments about this movie having a poor story,personally, I disagree. It was a father and son story, any more on topof the other sub plots going on would have been too much.

    It's a hell of an experience for the sences… when those Recognizersflew overhead the cinema shook… immersive, entertaining… everythinga good movie should be.

    Roll on Number 3.

    Kevin Flynn (Bridges) is the CEO of Encom and the world's best videogame developer. One night he simply vanishes without a trace and leaveshis company in chaos and his young son. Fast-forward 20 years, SamFlynn (Hedlund) is a rebellious 27 year old and a thorn in the side ofRichard Mackey (Nordling), a suit trying to take over his father'scompany with the help of a software designer (an uncredited cameo fromCillian Murphy). Though Sam is the heir, he refuses to play an activerole in the decision-making process. Alan Bradley (Boxleitner) meetshim one night with the news that he has received a page from KevinFlynn's arcade – a number that has been disconnected for 20 years. Thusensues the inevitable investigation into his father's whereabouts andSam's transportation into the world his father has created and beentrapped in for decades.

    Where to begin? Tron: Legacy is a visual feast for your eyes and anauditory pleasure thanks to Daft Punk and Joseph Trapanese. Thesoundtrack feels ethereal almost and fits perfectly with this new worldwe have been introduced to for the first time (or the 2nd time ifyou've seen the 1982 original).

    3D, for me, is a recent scourge that has been infecting and affectingthe movie industry. Yes, maybe it is a more lucrative avenue for themovie industry after the setback of heavy piracy but enough is enough!Joseph Kosinski, however, had a vision (and an architectural degreebehind him) to give us a mouth-opening, simply beautiful world with thecorrect blend of 2D and 3D! It is quite simply worth it just to go forthe visuals.

    What the movie makes up for in spectacular imagery, it lacks instoryline. Maybe I should have watched the 1982 version as so manypeople have pointed out to me but even without it, the plot seems alittle disjointed. The underlying connections to the real world arenumerous such as The Holocaust, God complexes, evil doppelgangers andmore. You are left with more questions than answers as it is neverrevealed just what it is about this world that would "changeeverything" in the real world.

    Jeff Bridges is great as both the villain and hero and his computeranimated self is simply amazing although at the same time off-putting(this might be the Uncanny Valley hypothesis at work). The actingoverall is not anything to write home about (no Oscar winners here) butHedlund as Sam Flynn holds his own against a more charismatic JeffBridges. Quorra (Wilde) provides a potential love interest and the keyto changing our world and a doe-eyed innocent view of life that isendearing.

    This is a movie that should be simply taken for what it is, a panderingto the original fan base whilst garnering new ones, one not to be over-analysed but simply to be marvelled at with a group of friends. Theactions scenes are just jaw-dropping with light cycles (that I wish Iowned!) and deadly Frisbees amongst other things. Disney took a risk tocontinue a series almost 3 decades later rather than going for the easyoption of re-imagining it. A wise move.

    WARNING: SPOILERS *****************

    Visually, a feast, but a leisurely script leads to a muddled climax.

    A fan of the original since 1983, I had been looking forward to thisfor a long time. The trailers & stills looked very promising. Sadly,while it looks good, some questionable decisions have been made, andthe film doesn't seem to know what to do or where to go.

    Some of the original concepts seem to have been dumbed down foraudience acceptance. Programs, formerly living a uniquely digitallifestyle, sipping energy from pools, worshiping users, are now justlike regular dudes with funny clothes. They work, sleep, eat, drink,and go to clubs.

    Perhaps this dumbing down is why this film poses more questions than itanswers.

    Why has the digital world taken on analogue characteristics like dust,atmosphere & functionless water?

    Why do the digital Recognizers, previously smooth, humming machinemenaces, now have exhaust flames & jet engine noise?

    Why do light cycles sound like they have gasoline engines?

    How can a totalitarian digital society have "homeless" programs (whodrink from brown paper bags yet)?

    Why do all the programs now leap around and pose exactly like Asianmartial artists? Just, why??

    How were the Isomorphic algorithms going to change the world?

    How was CLU going to conquer the world with a bunch of computerprograms who were good at throwing disks?

    When young Flynn switched off the server, was the world destroyed? (ifso, shouldn't he have waited, since (a) the threat had been stopped,and (b) in case there were still some of those useful ISOs surviving,especially since he (and the audience) have no clue as to how to usethem?)

    If hours in the digital world were minutes in the real one, and in thereal world it's been 20 years, does that mean that old Flynn had beentrapped for up to 1200 years? (which might explain why he's channelingThe Dude from "The Big Lebowski")

    The biggest disappointment for me was the almost complete absence ofthe title character. By the end of the film, I still wasn't sure whereTron was. I had to read some summaries on the Internet to find out.

    I would have preferred it if Tron, in his last act, saved the day.Sadly, when he did (briefly) appear, he was ineffective and pointless.

    I was a fan of the original Tron. Original ideas and logic have beendropped for populism & eye candy. The subtle humor & in-jokes areabsent. This is a disappointing followup.

    I have never seen the original 'Tron', nor do I really know much aboutit really. I've only heard the movie referenced on occasion (like thatone episode of The Simpsons where Homer's trapped in the ThirdDimension and he asks if anybody saw the movie 'Tron', and everyonesays "No."). The previews for 'Tron: Legacy' looked visually stunning,and I'm happy to report it does not disappoint in that regard.Everything seen inside "The Grid" is a wonder to behold, a visualfeast. But is this the only thing the film has going for it? Well…yesand no. As far as the characters/actors who portray them areconcerned…

    Garrett Hedlund is good as Sam Flynn. Yes, he has to utter some clunkydialogue along the way and is a bit stiff at times, but he serves therole well enough. At times he reminded me of Hayden Christensen asAnakin Skywalker (what with the pulling out of lightsabers…I meandiscs, donning of cloaks, etc) – though not half as bad as him.

    Jeff Bridges gives a solid performance as Sam's dad, Kevin Flynn. Theonly thing that detracts from his acting is his digitised clone, Clu.No matter how hard they have tried to create a youthful-looking JeffBridges using computer magic, he still looks like a "cartoon" (assomeone in the audience put it). While it's annoying, it would have atleast been tolerable if it had been limited to just the scenes insideThe Grid. However, the movie starts in the the real world with a"young" Kevin Flynn telling his son the story of Tron/The Grid, and youcan plainly tell the drastic difference between a real and fake JeffBridges. It's so obvious, and very distracting.

    Olivia Wilde kicks butt and looks great doing it (in her skintightcatsuit with neon highlights and her asymmetrical wig) as the warrior,Quorra. She seems to be having a lot more fun with this role than shedoes with that of Thirteen on 'House'. Quorra has a slight naivetyabout her in regards to some things, and displays a sense of childlikewonder on occasion (especially the end), which gives her some depth.Wilde and Hedlund share some good scenes together, and her character atleast gets *some* development – which is more than I can say for thealbino-like "Siren", Gem (Beau Garrett).

    Michael Sheen is memorable as Castor. While he does tend to "ham it up"a bit, it's nonetheless a delightful performance.

    Apart from the animation of Young Kevin Flynn, there are a couple ofother 'minuses' of the film, like the dialogue (which is oftentimesaverage) and the fact that the film itself does seem to drag inspots/go on for a bit too long.

    However, the visuals *do* almost manage to make up for most of thefilm's faults (almost). The movie looks stunning – after we get pastthe kinda boring beginning and are transported along with Sam insideThe Grid. Light Cycles, Light Runners, all mode of "Light"transportation make for thrilling action/chase sequences. Then there'sthe "games", that mostly seem to involve throwing discs – whichresemble Xena's round killing thing – at each other, causing those whoare hit to "derez" (ie. cease to exist). Another 'plus' for this filmis its excellent score. It adds SO much to the movie.

    The film is entertaining enough, but probably not the non-stop actionsome people are expecting/hoping for. If you're looking to kill acouple hours watching something that's visually pleasing (but, at thesame time, may give you a headache/sore eyes thanks to the 3D), then'Tron: Legacy' is worth checking out. Fans of the original may or maynot like this movie, I'm not sure, but I know that for someone likemyself – who's being introduced to the world of 'Tron' for the firsttime – it was quite something.

    Right off the bat I'm going to say that I didn't see the first film.Obviously I've heard from a lot of people saying that they need to seethe first film before watching this one, seeing as this is a directsequel to a nearly 30 year old cult sci-fi film. But, seeing that Ididn't have time, I decided to watch the sequel anyway.

    Now keep in mind that Disney took a HUGE risk in making a sequel to amovie that is not very often talked about when it comes to movies asopposed to many blockbusters today. The first TRON had no famousfranchise to speak of (apart from the real games inspired by it).Adding to the danger is the film's budget – reportedly between US$ 200- 300 million. With that kind of money you'll wonder what exactly wasDisney hoping for with this film.

    Nevermind the fact that the story is a bit unfocused and could berounded up in a more polished way. Nevermind too that the fantasticworld and great ideas aren't expanded upon some more, as well as thefact that the script could use a little bit more originality.

    Also, not forgetting some good (in Jeff Bridges' case, great as alwaysas he plays two very different characters with perfect emotionalresonance – proving that he still has the chops to carry a big movie)performances by the cast – with Garrett Hedlund showing great leadingman potential and Olivia Wilde looking great and cute to boot. MichaelSheen, Beau Garrett and Bruce Boxleitner (apparently returning to hisrole from the first film, so it seems) all give good support.

    No sir-ee, what you pay for – and what you get in spades – are thespecial/visual effects. Goodness me, this is quite possibly the bestspecial effects I've seen all year, and that's saying something. I haveto admit though, the CGI that makes Jeff Bridges young look jarring,but that is overshadowed by the compelling, groundbreakingspecial/visual effects that really bring you into the cybernetic world.Who doesn't want to take a ride on one of those fantastic, futuristicvehicles? Who doesn't want those awesome light-cycles or one of thosedueling/data discs? It is possible that, like "Avatar" a year ago, thisfilm can be a game-changer for special/visual effects alone.

    It's a real treat for the eyes, and it's even better in 3D which issplendidly used to flesh out the dimensions and graphics of the cyberworld bring you even deeper into the world instead of things merelyflying out to you and post-production conversion like in SO many 3Dmovies (Note that in the 3D version, there's a disclaimer before thefilm starts, saying that parts of the film are filmed in both natural2D and 3D as they way they should be. Just so you know, this shows thatthe filmmakers care for what they want to give you).

    Very ambitious architect-and-designer-turned-first-time-filmmakerJoseph Kosinski hit a home run with this film, crafting anextraordinary and spellbinding world of escapism that looks slick,stylish and extremely cool to watch. Kosinski and the production teamfill the cyber world with heaps of imagination and the result is whatyou see on screen. And here I thought Hollywood would recycle certaindesign patterns (plot patterns still need work though). Kosinski is atruly visionary filmmaker that one really has to keep an eye on.

    The production design is on par with the special effects, it is nothingshort of spectacular and perfect. The cinematography which is big andwide and best of all NOT shaky allows you to savor every moment of SFXgoodness. The superb sound effects serve to complement the visuals andthe electronic world, and all for the better. Daft Punk's varying butatmospheric electronic/orchestral score all but suits the film's moodperfectly with its techno beats and soaring string during moments.

    Overall, this is perhaps a fine way to end the blockbuster season of2010, and this is a definite must watch for all looking for an escape.The special effects alone are worth the price of TWO movie tickets, andwith that I say, give this one a try, even if you haven't seen thefirst one. It aims to entertain and to dazzle the audience, and itsucceeds brilliantly. Excuse me while I rent the first one now.

    Overall rating: 75/100

    I say this because he is the best part of this film. He is the only onewho actually gives a performance worth watching and the only reason Igave it three stars instead of one.

    Now for the rest of this godawful mess: The first film had an actuallyinteresting and sustainable premise, namely, a formerly free system,steadily being corrupted by an increasingly bloated AI Master ControlProgram, with dual protagonists in the form of the fish-out-of-waterFlynn and the heroic security program Tron. The film dabbles withtheology, philosophy, and the nature of existence without ever becomingham-fisted or preachy, and, while flawed, manages to tell a crackinggood story in (for the time) ground-breaking style.

    Legacy, on the other hand, manages to take that once-sturdy premise andtwist it into some sort of muddled Hitler allegory, with no clearmotivations for the heroes *or* villains, no clear explanations forexactly why Clu went bad, and, most of all, no clear explanation forjust what the hell Clu thought he was gonna do in the real world. Imean, he did know the light cycles and light jets and stuff wouldn'twork, right? He did realize that bullets would be perfectly capable ofkilling his solidified programs, right? He did know that his plan wasthe most *idiotic plan in the history of idiotic plans, right*?!!

    Moving on to the extremely sloppy plotting, a sleazy chairman of theboard and Ed Dillinger's son are introduced early in the film and neverseen again. *Ed Freaking Dillinger*! Think about that for a minute. Theson of the man whom Flynn presumably sent to prison at the end of thefirst film is introduced as working for the company of the man who senthis father to prison. He "fixes" something Flynn's son does as a (lame)prank, concocts a solution to the prank, and is *never freaking seenagain*! This is only the first of many plot threads which areintroduced and left unresolved in the finest Disney potboilertradition.

    I will not even get into the complete asspull represented by the"ISOs," whatever the hell they were, since I couldn't follow thegobbledy-gook Bridges was forced to spout in that scene. Let's just saythat they're an anvilicious Jew analogy and leave it at that.

    All of this complete mish-mash of utter crapola leads up to one of theworst, most anti-climactic endings in recent cinematic history. I tooktime out of the retching I was doing at Bridges' awful performance (oneminute he's playing it straight, the next he's The Dude– make up yourmind and stick with one, willya?) to marvel at the sheer hatefullameness of this blatant sequel set-up.

    There is so much more I could say about this waste of time, money, andopportunity, but I will end by saying that this film left my childhoodmemories like a Saturday night after Atilla the Hun hit town: raped andmurdered.

    Tron is on it's way to become the most over-rated movie of 2010. It's acandy-wrapped insult to intelligence, as well as to the original.

    First, the visual effects. Although they look stunning in theirall-black-and-neon style, there's not much original about them. It'schases and fights like we've seen a zillion times before. The worstthing is that most original idea from the original Tron is dropped. Inthe 1982 version, the light bikes were making sharp 90º turns withoutlosing any of their phenomenal speed, really like electrons moving overthe grid of a computer chip. It gave them an unpredictable anddangerous feel, and the impression of an eerie universe where normallaws of physics don't apply. In the new Tron, however, everything looksmuch more realistic. The bikes ride like normal bikes, planes fly likenormal planes, and people die like normal people. Except for the factthat they disintegrate into little square pieces… Whoo, surprise!What is supposed to be a world of competing digital programs, is just adark street with people walking around in funny dresses and plasticumbrellas. Yes, it even rains, and there's bums with (how modern!)plastic bottles. The good guys are white, the bad guys are red. Exceptfor that eccentric (read; gay) disco owner who turns out to be atraitor… No, I can't say I've been visually surprised once.

    Then the story. It's the kind of script that does away with reason.Facts are stated in sentences like "My disk is the key!" or "The portalis only open for 8 hours!" or "It will change the world! Science,quantum mechanics, religion, everything!" without explanation. The mostridiculous are the "ISO's", some tribe of digital people who 'justappeared out of nowhere', whose last surviving chick becomes of majorimportance because daddy says she must -at all costs- become human. Allfor no apparent reason, other then filling a void script. But ouradolescent hero doesn't need reasons or explanations, because allsolutions to his problems are handed to him on a silver platter anyhow.When the going gets rough, there's always a car or a train or somepretty girl appearing out of nowhere to take him exactly where he hasto go. All he has to do is comply. It's no adventure, it's plainboring.

    But sometimes it looks nice. And the abundance of little stupidities inthis film, like the paper pig they're having for digital dinner, makeit funny. So I guess you could say it provides an enjoyable evening!

    Tron Legacy is so bad, that if I had been in Jonestown and they wereshowing this film, I would have drunk the Kool-aid half way through thefilm to end my life.

    The lines are so bad, the acting is borrowed from every blockbusterthat was a success before this film (think Star Wars, Raiders, Attackof The Clones..etc.) the idea is, if they show you familiar themes withfamiliar frames and a music score that is supposed to be avant-gardebut comes up sounding borrowed and repetitive. The Film wants to beBatman, and a video game at the same time, and it never makes sense.For a film that's about computers, the computers seem awfully stupidand the Users even more idiotic…

    Save your money and see Yogi Bear at least that movie has no pretense.

    First thing I want to say is that I was very annoyed that they onlyshowed it in 3D at the theater. It was a waste of extra money: I keptmy glasses off during the intro and when they were in the digital worldI didn't really notice when it was 3D.

    The story wasn't interesting. It was annoying that it hinted at theHolocaust and Hitler (or any other fascist leader, doesn't matter):"genocide" of the ISO's, one person leading the rest to "perfection". Ididn't see why Clu would bother entering the real world. If he can senda page to someone in the real world, he might as well just hit thesystems of countries or banks, whatever — what Master Computer wantedto do in the original.

    The characters were cliché and flat. It almost seems like movie makerstake the same characters but put them in another jacket and story everytime. There wasn't much dialogue and it still sucked. They used stupidone-liners you might've heard before. (Maybe not the exact same words,but the reaction to a certain situation, the way and the tone in whichit is said is the same in a lot of movies.) Tron, or Rinzler didn'tmake sense to me. OK so, first he was a good program who believed inthe users, then a while later in the New System CLU turns againstFlynn/users and turned Tron into Rinzler. Rinzler's hunting down Sam,but then, in their…aerial pursuit.. he changes, goes "…I fight forthe users!!" and crashes into Clu. Maybe I missed something, but Ithought that was very random. (And why does his head whir?) The digitalworld itself was pretty wrong. You got that computer-feeling in theoriginal Tron, but in Tron:Legacy it felt more like being on anotherplanet. Dust blowing up, wind, curves, spilling blood (that drop), …it all seemed wrong to me, because I always imagine a computer world tobe more straight lines, 010101,pixel, etc.

    I had the impression they were advertising in the movie as well. Ipad,Nokia, mascara, … I wouldn't normally care, but it was obvious whenone of those girls were staring at the camera for a second too long.

    The only good thing about Tron: Legacy was the film score. Daft Punkdid a great job! It really fit the idea and gave the right feeling. Istill feel thrilled when I recall the intro of the movie. I almost wishthey had just made the movie themselves, they would've done a betterjob.

    I'm not surprised that Tron wasn't a good movie. It's obvious that it'sjust another dump Disney made purely for the money. The Disney from mychildhood is pretty much dead now.

    Anyway, if you haven't seen Tron: I wouldn't bother. Especially not ifit's only in 3D; it's not worth the extra money. Unless you like DaftPunk and want to listen the music while eating eye candy.
