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…
The visuals were surreal, but this movie was just so bland. Nonetheless, it was a bit better than the original.
"Your old man's about to knock on the sky and listen to the sound".
All four stars go to Jeff Bridge's robe.
Visually hypnotic, with an atmospheric Daft Punk score that is perfect. The story is paperthin and the characters generally unappealing, however, but this is one of those movies where the visual and aural experience carries it. Imagine going on a Disney theme park ride and complaining it didn't have a good story. This film is a bit like that.
A post-punk electro design style mixed fashionably into a revolving world of neon colored suits, sterile Kubrickian sets and a multi-layered 3D world that continually fascinates. But all these dynamic visuals wouldn't be more than candy coloring if it weren't for the performances of Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund and (especially) Martin Sheen providing a beating heart underneath the technological effects. This is Disney yes, but "Tron: Legacy" maintains a perverse streak in the way the camera frames Wilde seductively posing on a couch or Martin Sheen hamming it up as some sort of carnival ringleader named Zeus. This is erotic and esoteric stuff for a modern blockbuster.

Beginning and (almost) very end weren't great, but the middle was pretty good. Also, Daft Punk soundtrack :)
"The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they move through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? Motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day, I got in." -Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges). This visual stunner and action drama, and sequel to the 1982 Tron is sure to thrill almost anybody who sees it.
When Kevin Flynn, CEO of ENCOM, gets trapped inside his computer creation and nobody knows what happened to him, it takes 20 years for anyone to see him again, when his son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) goes inside the grid to find him. Inside, he finds a digital…
Hipnotizējošas krāsas un hipnotizējoša mūzika, taču vienmuļš stāsts. Spilgtie elementi nespēj nomākt vispārēju garlaicību.
This long-awaited sequel to the sci-fi action classic from 1982 picks up where the original left off; computer programmer, and ENCOM CEO Kevin Flynn, played by a young, computer-generated Jeff Bridges regales his six-year-old-son, Sam, with tales of his adventures inside the computer grid, which we're familiar with from the first movie. But then Kevin goes missing for 21 years, and the story follows Sam, now a defiant 27-year-old motorcycling programmer in his own right (played by Garrett Hedlund), in search of his father, whom he eventually learns has been trapped inside the computer grid for over two decades.
As with the original, "Tron: Legacy" is a visual marvel - director Joseph Kosinski not only successfully updates and adapts the…
This continues to be one of my kids' favorite movies to watch. And it continues to grow and grow on me. Jeff Bridges' hippy vibe in the midst of a sleek, futuristic world is so much fun. It's also heavily cerebral in a way that outstrips most other current sci-fi. I love that Bridges' nemesis is an ageless, younger version of himself who can't mature out of his wrong assumptions about the world and what's important.
This movie is like glorious comfort food. I get sucked into every visual and the soundtrack every time.
Like father, like son...
The story and pacing problems which affected the first film, incredibly, seem to have been passed onto TRON: Legacy! Indeed, it's fair to say that it suffers from virtually all the same negatives as the first film. But thankfully, it also has the positives.
The film looks incredible - one of the most consistantly best looking films in years. It also sounds terrific, from the great sound effects work to Daft Punk's wonderful soundtrack.
Like the original, the film borders on the emotionally cold side, and this time without a young, cocky Jeff Bridges to heat things up (not that I don't enjoy the tech'd up version of The Dude that Kevin has become).
