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…
My pick for an upcoming "movies we have an irrational affection for" episode of Movies Now and Then
When I talk about Tron: Legacy, I often find myself jumping to the defensive, trying to respond to criticisms made against the film, but that's not what I want to do here. I'm a defensive guy and I can recognize that about myself, but I don't have any interest in explaining why the film's weaknesses don't bother me. Obviously they don't or I wouldn't be here watching it again for the second time in less than a month. I want to tell you why I love it.
First and foremost, I love it because it is a beautiful audio-visual experience. It's easy…
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.

Rewatched for an upcoming podcast episode on movies we love more than everybody else seems to. Needed to make sure I still like it as much as I remembered.
I'm just so charmed with how earnest it is. It takes a very specific kind of big action special effects blockbuster to interrupt its plot in order to have a main character describe a sunrise, only to later double down on this overblown emotional beat by ending the movie with a callback to it, as if no one had ever used a sunrise to represent beauty before.
I'll give Tron: Legacy the full Screening Notes treatment soon (probably after the podcast), but if you're hungry for some fan love, check out this article I did a couple years ago about the differences and similarities between Legacy and the original Tron.
End of line.
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.
Visually striking but lost in a predictable and overdone plot.
"Tron: Legacy" has a great soundtrack and its lighting and camera work is outstanding but any kind of depth to its characters are not present.
The original score by Daft Punk is perfection.
28 anos depois, a Disney resolve nos trazer a sequência do cult TRON (1982). Agora dirigido pelo inexperiente Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion, 2013), que demonstra um problema com ritmo, que varia muito e atrapalha um pouco o desenvolver da história. Entretanto, o diretor acerta nas sequências de ação que são muito bem filmadas! A história se passa alguns anos depois dos eventos do primeiro filme, e mostra que o universo da "Grade" agora está dominada pelo vilão Clu. Retratando a luta do filho do Flynn para salvar o pai, preso na "Grade", a história se aprofunda e explora mais a mitologia de TRON! O destaque novamente fica por conta do apelo visual! O primeiro filme foi sem dúvida inovador e criativo…

A pesar de todos sus defectos igual me gusta. Es una pena que no continuaran con la franquicia.
I loved it, and I don't care what you think.
This movie made zero sense to me the first time I watched it. Granted, I have never actually seen the original one (which I believe was the first movie ever to use CGI). I remembered Tron Legacy as having some pretty gorgeous visuals though, and I was right, it definitely does. The movie was as absolutely stunning to the eyes as I remember–and not just because of Olivia Wilde *swoons*. So, on the same 3D TV that I’ve been making use of quite a lot lately, we decided to watch it. The 3D was actually very subtle and understated- meaning I hardly noticed it at all, which is too bad, as I was expecting a bit more in that regard. But the soundtrack by Daft Punk is very, very cool, and the story actually did make a bit more sense this time around. CGI Jeff Bridges doesn’t look very good though.
Extremely underrated, surreal, and prepossessing. The plot is weak, but the movie's style and heart make up for it. I could talk at nauseam about the soundtrack, but I'll just say that the soundtrack alone makes up for its weak plot.
A very cool-looking movie, there's a better story in there. But the effects and music made it entertaining enough to watch and enjoy.

Films where their style fills the screen so absolutely, substance is but an afterthought.
