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.
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.
The visuals were surreal, but this movie was just so bland. Nonetheless, it was a bit better than the original.
Style over substance, yes. But what lovely style it is.
Legacy is dumb B movie Sci-Fi that has a massive budget. It's fun, it's silly, and that's it. The lynchpin for me has to be the Daft Punk soundtrack, which is superb, and greatly overshadows the visuals going on around it. The film therefore is basically a glorified music video. The best music video of all time, I'll give you that, but still just a music video.
It's hard to talk about a film that is so blatantly superficial. When it comes down to it, the film is cool and that, it seems, is all it's trying to be. I enjoyed it.
Eye and ear candy. I've seen it a few times and I didn't remember it having such cheesy lines. I like Jeff Bridges as Jeff Bridges. They try to make an intriguing storyline with Flynn's disappearance and the evolution thing, but the visuals and sounds just blow everything else out of the water. I want a 3rd movie so I can hear and see more, and if they make the storyline awesome then please do so.
I still don't quite understand the story, and I always feel like I need to have watched the original right before seeing this one, but this is a blast to watch. It's way more flash than substance, but the flash is fabulous. And the music. That's part of the flash too. Such a great soundtrack.
This is new cult canon.
Despite a laughable Digi-Bridges and plot that revolves around a digital Third Reich, this film is beyond charming and remarkably fun.
The production design, soundtrack, visuals, and Jeff Bridges' return as "The Dude" all make this film an easy rewatch. It's got a life of its own and it's a great 2 hours.
This review is a first (though I've done reviews before) and I thought I'd start off with one of my favorite movies of all time.
Yes that is a four out of five star rating, so hear me out.
I remember it like it was yesterday. The hype I created for this film was tremendous. Around that month of December, Tron was life. That's all I knew. I'd seen trailers, tv spots, clips, game play, and heard the music and I fell in love. Still, today it is one of my most favorite films. I wont categorize it because this film is too underrated to do so, but here we go.
I absolutely loved the film the day I laid…
Certainly not a strong film in terms of story or characters, but when it comes to the visuals, TRON: LEGACY is no disappointment at all. The movie looks great, the action sequences are awesome, the worldbuilding is cool, and the soundtrack by Daft Punk is really nice to hear. This isn't a great movie by all means, but still one that I think really satisfies on entertainment value.
Promising, pretty, overhyped, Olivia Wilde in spandex.
My new guilty pleasure?
Visually brilliant, musically brilliant. Everything else is tragically bad.
