The Game Has Changed.
Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy and daring son of Kevin Flynn, investigates his father's disappearance and is pulled into The Grid. With the help of a mysterious program named Quorra, Sam quests to stop evil dictator Clu from crossing into the real world.
I hated this movie when I saw it at the theatre. I liked it when I bought one more ticket a week later. I loved it when I re-watched it again yesterday.
The reason was, as it often is, mismatched expectations. The plot here was clearly written in BASIC with a lot of GO TO statements, and the actors feel as incompatible as various 8-bit platforms of the early 1980s. Someone once quipped, cynically, that the legacy of Tron: Legacy was only two things: a) the soundtrack and b) Olivia Wilde’s haircut.
There’s, however, so much more. Tron’s virtual world, made of glass and neon, is beautiful, meticulous, and enthralling. The visuals, the sound editing, the soundtrack all make it…
I keep coming back to this flick.
I've got love for you if you like this movie.

I can not even explain to you how much I love this movie. Sure, the young digital Jeff Bridges face is disgusting and the plot is god awful, but it's seriously one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. The lightcycle scene and Kevin Flynn's hideout are like my new porn. And don't even get me started on the soundtrack! Daft Punk have created a thing of beauty with that one. So turn off your brain and just enjoy the eye/eargasms.
An actively flawed and messy film in the digital age about the quest for perfection through a digital world (and more)..... but that's probably just one of the reasons I love it so much.
Not as lively in it's spirit/visuals as Speed Racer (nor as smart), but goes on a similar shelf nontheless.
Oh yeah, and the music is like, ridiculously good.
I have a real soft spot for the original Tron. The story might be weak and the film has some major pacing issues but I can't fail but to be transported back to a time when I first saw the film and how it's pioneering visuals transfixed me as a child. Unfortunately the older I become the harder I find it to look beyond a films major failings and to just be transported to a fantastical place. It does happen sometimes, Speed Racer being a good example, but sadly, try as I might, I was unable to see Tron Legacy through the eyes of my seven year old self.
The film does get some things very well. The Daft Punk…
Slightly more than eye candy, slightly less than good, never-the-less it looked and felt like what TRON should be. If we're all being honest here, the first one wasn't that great either but I like it now as much as I did as a kid. If I were to show Legacy to the kid me, I know he would like it as much as adult me.
Let me see if I've got this straight...
Flynn Sr. builds a digital world that human beings can enter. Inside this digital world are programs designed to resemble human beings. Because of the complexity of this virtual world, human-like programs naturally evolve from simple programs. In other words, Flynn didn't intend to create these programs, they just appeared. So... there are humans, intentional programs, and unintentional programs within "The System". Pretty impressive concept. This is the concept the entirety of the movies plot is based off of. There's just one thing I noticed that went unacknowledged. At the end of the movie Flynn Jr. and an ISO (unintended program) escape the system through a portal back into reality. This is…
Checked it out again in 3D in the home theater and I have to say it was better than I originally remember. The CGI Jeff Bridges is hit or miss but the rest of the effects are still very cool.

"It's bio-digital jazz, man."
Like the 1982 original, Tron Colon Legacy is a riff on other better adventure sci-fi, but, unlike Tron, it doesn't have the advantage of being on the cutting edge of, well, anything. Computer tech has advanced so far in the past thirty years that pretty much everything in Legacy seems quaint and not all that different than other tech obsessed blockbusters. I mean, sure, the visuals are well rendered (except for the young Flynn/Clu face replacement stuff, which is an uncanny valley nightmare), and the soundtrack by Daft Punk is a pleasant novelty, but the main story thrust is starved of purpose.
There are some inspired bits of character, like Jeff Bridges' dudeisms or Olivia Wilde…
Sequels to cult movies are tough, but surprisingly, this one really worked for me.
I ought to start by pointing out that I thought I'd seen the beginning of Tron. I was actually wrong about that, but I had at least seen enough to remember the eponymous character being a bit of a badass. That is a pretty major problem since the makers of this movie only pay lip service to the character of Tron and even give him a bizarre growling voice. Apparently it's still Bruce Boxleitner doing the voice, but you wouldn't know it. And of course Tron doesn't look like Bruce Boxleitner because they don't want to do the youthing treatment through CGI on him as well as Jeff Bridges.
Okay, in fact let's more on to the Jeff Bridges CGI…
ótimo filme para quem tah afim de algo com muita tecnologia
i admit i feared this film, as many sequels would blow, but i loved this film since the first time. it does great justice to the first movie of the saga, the story is well thought and nicely interweaves with the original tales of flynn and alan (a.k.a. tron).
also, the cyberpunk aesthetics of the grid is a big plus and the score is an amazing pairing to the breathtaking visuals.
I liked this a lot for reasons I don't understand?
I'm trying to create a full list of the subgenres. Cyberpunk can best be defined as high tech meets low…
