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…
The visuals were surreal, but this movie was just so bland. Nonetheless, it was a bit better than the original.
When I first saw the shaky-cam YouTube video featuring 6,500 geeks roaring their guts out with delight and surprise as the TR2N (as it was then known) trailer unexpectedly played at the end of a Disney Comic-Con panel in 2008, I actually started crying. A deep nostalgic wound opened up - I remembered bunking off school to go and see Tron at the cinema with my dad. I remembered feeling hot tears when I accidently broke my replica light cycle in the playground. I remembered lying in bed at night, pulling my Tron duvet (which I still own) up around my ears as if trying to escape into its virtual world, while it muffled the sound of my parents arguing…
I was extremely excited to see this film knowing that it was being made too be an improvement over the original (which was fine nothing special and a bit boring in places) to show that tron is still cool and after all the awesome trailers with these cool special effects I'm afraid its a triumphant failure that didn't reach any of my expectations because of poor casting choices, being over long, dragging on, trying to be emotional but failing what a sad movie.
Looking really cool, and sounding really cool (the soundtrack was by Daft Punk) couldn't quite make up for the fact that it made no friggin' sense whatsoever. And through the middle, when Jeff Bridges sat down and tried in vain to explain it all, it got pretty boring.
Charming Olivia Wilde and Kosinski's gorgeous visuals are not enough to save this uninteresting sci-fi blockbuster.
Legacy is a worthy successor of the original film. The cast does a great job, but the visual effects are so stunning that you can't stop watching.
Elsker den. Skide god
Daft Punk war geil. Der Film leider nicht. Dabei hätte er eine Menge potenzial. Optisch und Musikalisch auf jeden Fall anschaubar bzw. anhörbar. Man sollte nur sonst nicht zu viel erwarten. Hinzu kommen zwei sehr, fürs Auge verstörende 3D Effekte, die mir wiedermal beweisen das 3D nur Geldmacherei ist. Ich habe mir den Film ein zweites mal angeschaut als die BluRay erschienen ist. Überwiegend wegen der Daft Punk Szene. Ohne 3D. Hier wirken die Farben natürlich viel besser, was diesem Film zu gute kommt.
Wicked stupid, but I don't deny there's something kind of awesome buried in here.
See my review for "Oblivion". Different mannequin, same store.
