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…
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…

Another film I have no idea why I haven't seen before. This is probably one of the most visually stunning films I've ever seen. Every scene conjures up something new to marvel at. The effects are also in a different league to nearly everything else out there - the lightcycle battle being a brilliant example of this. The cinematography also helps to make this one of the most thrilling films there is. Add in a top-class soundtrack, and what you have is one hell of a film.
Don't know why the film get so much hate. its a fine effort with a great soundtrack and olivia Wilde looking great in her tight outfit.
Visually strong (if a bit samey). Good use of 3D. Intimacy of original lost. Crap ending.
i saw it twice but it wasnt worth the money
Even though the story is lame - I love the world. I love the production and design aspects and of course the score.
Went and saw a second time at IMAX.
I am not a fan of live action 3D, but the quality of it in this movie was acceptable, maybe even good - and especially liked that it was used as part of the story-telling.
PS - Would love to see an IMAX check box for when logging a film. And maybe one for 3D as well.
Estuvo bien, buenos efectos especiales y muy buena representación del mundo digital, sin embargo perdió mucha magia que si tenia la primera, ademas de alejarse demasiado con la historia principal o mejor dicho, el tipo de trama, en la vieja era descubrir el mundo de TRON pero en esta era mas "la odisea de padre eh hijo", muy mala en ese sentido.
What an undecipherable mess.
Me vi la primera antes de acercarme a ésta (mucho antes de que la estrenaran). Me causó gracia que en esta película en específico, el personaje cuyo nombre lleva la película no es protagonista, ni secundario ni nada parecido. Es aún más lejano, casi un extra. Se le dedican apenas diez minutos de la trama para nombrarlo y mostrar su aparición (bueno, quince minutos máximo).
Los efectos son espectaculares, no se niega. Y el Soundtrack de Daft Punk pega muy bien con las distintas escenas que se presentan, muy buena elección (sobre todo porque mantuvieron el tema original de la primera película. Eso lo agradezco en verdad, el respeto al filme que vino antes). Hay ciertas cosas que se mantienen…
While not without its flaws, Tron: Legacy is a decent sci-fi movie that is visually stunning and well acted.
Hach schade, schade, schade. Gut gecastet, schöne die Kulissen und Kostüme in die Gegenwart übertragen, aber was für ein beschissenes Drehbuch. Ey, wenn man keine Ahnung von der Materie hat einfach mal lassen und keine halbgare Sache machen. Aber bei dem Regisseur und seiner Filmographie kein wunder. Schade, ein 2. Teil hätte sich hier nach 30 Jahren definitiv angeboten. Man hätte was großartiges schaffen können, aber das ist nur ein lascher, viel schlechterer Aufguss. Als wenn der "coole" Quarterback einen Film für Nerds machen will. Das funktioniert so nicht.
