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…
The original "Tron" may not have been a great film, but it was a revelation to me in terms of depicting the promise of animated computer graphics, something that would become my career just a few years later. Subsequent viewings always provided a rush of warmth and nostalgia, feelings that were totally independent of the actual merits of the film.
Watching "Tron: Legacy" gave me many of the same feelings, diminishing the impact of some of it's flaws. It's not a bad sci-fi action film ... it moves along well enough, if a bit slowly in places, and the premise still resonates even in a time that is long past the golden age of the video arcade. Jeff Bridges is…
Look into my eyes.
Now look at Olivia Wilde in this movie.
Now back at me.
Try to tell me how erect you aren't.
If you don't have a dick, but instead have wet concave shit going on, that's cool too. It's not a matter of your sexual orientation, but about whether or not you're fucking blind.
Hmm... Conception trumps practicality many times in this installment. Yeah... I want to like this movie because the original is one of my favorites. Hopefully future installments will make this peitrydish fiasco a little more substantial.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I so wanted to like this movie but it was a real stinker right from the get go. The car fight was cool but you couldn't tell what was going on! The parachuting off the building was so obviously a foreshadow that it did nothing for character. The lights and neon all in orange was a really terrible choice.
While I loved Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner, Garrett Hedlund was terrible. There was something off about him or his character from right off. Olivia Wilde as the rare self propagating program was better than him!
The overt hawk vs. dove mentality really did it for me and caused excessive eye rolling. All the action happened off screen while the son…
Actually I thought it was pretty decent. I'm rating it higher than I should due to visuals.
It's also an 80s movie through and through. Why couldn't people see that when they gave it a canning?
FUCK IT. Going five stars.
Stunningly beautiful visuals, an intoxicating 80’s inspired soundtrack and fantastically fun performances from Jeff Bridges and Michael Sheen make for an all round great experience even if the story is somewhat lacking and the build-up is slow.
Breathtaking 3D effects and Daft Punk's killer soundtrack are just enough to compensate for TRON: Legacy's boring plot and thinly-written characters.
When I first saw “TRON: Legacy” on opening night back in 2010, it was one of the first films I loved, and it will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve grown a great deal in my knowledge and appreciation of cinema since then, and now that I’ve seen so much more of what the medium can do, something like “TRON: Legacy” has to diminish in my estimation - but I can also see more clearly why I loved it in the first place. It’s still an example of stunning world-building, a skill which is all too rare in modern blockbusters. It still has an excellent and memorable score (incidentally, one of the first soundtracks I ever loved).…
I'm trying to create a full list of the subgenres. Cyberpunk can best be defined as high tech meets low…
