The Game Has Changed.

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.
The soundtrack, the visuals and an overacting Michael Sheen make up for all the flaws in the movie.
Average watch, creative story but doesn't really keep you glued
I really feel like the overall idea behind this film was "if the audience's retinas have been burnt out by the neon, then they can't see the film, and therefore can't dislike the film"
Flawless logic imo.
Yeah, the story's not quite there but I really consider it must see just because the visuals and soundtrack are such an experience, and I honestly don't have a problem with style over substance.
Solidly entertaining sequel to the 80s fantasy gives the audience everything they could want in terms of story and special FX. The opening of the film makes for a moody and mysterious entry back into the world of Tron, with a welcome appearance by Tron himself, Bruce Boxleitner returning as Alan Shepard. Sam Flynn's exploration of Flynn's Arcade is hardly action-packed, but its a great showcase for director Joseph Kosinski's obvious skill for combining visuals with music. Once we're into the digital world, the movie kicks into high gear with dueling light cycles and battles with discs, scored to nirvanic perfection by Daft Punk. Much like the original, the movie's primary appeal is its visuals and although not as colorful…
There's some glaring issues with this movie, but I still love it. Yeah, some of the story elements don't make a ton of sense. And CG Jeff Daniels doesn't look that great. But the look and sound of this movie are still amazing. Everyone talks about the score by Daft Punk, and they should. It's the greatest element in the entire film and single-handedly raises it to something more than your generic blockbuster.
Jeff Daniels performance is a bit too Dude-er-ific, but he's still fun to watch. I actually think the actor who plays Sam is awesome in this. He seems to be having a great time playing the part and it's contagious watching him. It's suprising to me he…
This has remarkable visuals and audio, and has a few scenes that are just pure joy to watch (the light cycle scene towards the beginning, and the climax). It's a shame that I couldn't make myself care about any aspect of the plot. The plot is generally coherent, but it's just too overwritten and the stakes are too abstract to get you involved in it.
There are a couple things that worked with anything other than the technical side of things, and those are Olivia Wilde and Michael Sheen. Michael Sheen seems to be having a grand old time chewing the scenery in some outlandish makeup in his handful of scenes, he's quite a lot of fun. Olivia Wilde is…
I unapologetically love this movie so much.
The technical side of this film is superb, but the plot is way too sporadic and almost nonexistent at times. Not Recommended
I'm trying to create a full list of the subgenres. Cyberpunk can best be defined as high tech meets low…
