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.
Take a stereotypical Sci-Fi villain without a true motivation beyond traditional Sci-Fi narrative, an unknown and - throughout the whole movie unlikable and bland main character, an empty, self-contradictory message and you have the typical Sci-Fi flash-in-the-pan.
If you want it to still be somewhat memorable, also add Jeff Bridges, a stunning visual and a phenomenal soundtrack. Those who like Blade Runner for its music and Avatar for the pretty scenery can also watch this and be entertained.
One thing remains however - I'm not entirely certain if they tried to re-imagine the original movie in terms of action and dialogue, because everything seems to happen half a second too slow for modern taste, but fits right in with 80's action. Coincidence of failure and source material, or a witty trick? We will see in Tron 3.
TRON: Legacy is a really fun sci-fi film. It pays homage to the original film and it has awesome action sequences and an amazing soundtrack.
A boring, dull film, truly not worth the watch
The graphics/visuals are just so good man
Nails perfectly the atmosphere of part 1, even if it's mostly because of the same pacing issues. In the end, I like it, without loving it. But it is nice to finally see a pure Science Fiction movie again, that takes us into a whole different fantastic world, without trying to come up with a (pseudo-) scientific explaination. I just love that Jules Verne approach to Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Mediocre shiny lights
Not bad, nor good, but interesting.
Tron: Legacy is a visual stunning sequel to 80's computer generated hit TRON. If at sometime the story is predictable this is made up for by the computer generated world that is stunning to behold ...
Sometimes stunning visuals and an out of this world soundtrack IS enough.
