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.
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.

All four stars go to Jeff Bridge's robe.
The original Tron was a film from 1982 and it was an American cult classic computer-animated/live action science fiction art work directed by Steven Lisberger... The sequel titled Tron: Legacy is directed by Joseph Kosinski and I have to say that it was one of the most disappointing movies I had a chance to see this year! The 3D was used so badly that I could do better using any freeware on my computer, and $26 paid for two tickets were waste of money (RSPCA sorry, I could spend money on you)! Shooting of the film lasted only 64 days and the post-production, due to the heavy special effects, required 68 weeks... I wonder why, when the result is so…
Daft Punk makes an awesome soundtrack for this film. Outside of that, the film wasn't that bad. I had some low expectations based on the reviews. It isn't as good as it could be, but seriously the original was nothing great either. The action and special effects are pretty amazing. Nevertheless, there are moments in the film where it just seems silly. The writing and the acting are actually not too bad, but moments don't sit well. Garrett actually sounds a lot like Bridges at times which may be why he got the acting job. They also did a great job in making Bridges look younger and of course being the baddie in Clu. Hopefully, something better can be made…
Visuals - terrific. Acting - fine. The whole concept - passable. The music - excellent. Yet something is missing.
The original charm of the 1982 original is severely lacking in this 2010 reboot.
Amazing visuals. Story could have been clearer...
The movie actually repeats much parts of it's processor so it’s a remake in most parts. And unfortunately it’s nothing you should watch because of the story (which lacks depth). But the visuals are stunning!
Joseph Kosinski filmed „Oblivion“ after this, which also looks awesome but has some trouble with the material. Just imagine what the guy can do with better script.
If all you had to do to grab a date with Olivia Wilde was follow the course of this film, you'd never get half the population off their Xbox.
Revisited, this is a far better sequel than I remembered and manages to update the original's cutting edge "look what computers can do" feel to modern CG hyper-real standards quite successfully. Daft Punk's fantastic soundtrack vies with the FX budget for the best bit of the film, though...
C'mon, guys. Thirty-two years have elapsed since the first movie, and you could easily have passed the Bechdel test this time. Stop congratulating yourself for vomiting special effects all over the audience and work on your script.
Just for 13 :D
(Rachel) I've dreaded having to watch this movie for a long time and when the day finally came that Tim picked it I didn't hate it. It was enjoyable actually. The story itself was definitely lacking and I'm still confused on the name of it since it really has nothing to do with the character named Tron, but I'm guessing it's all based on recognizability, but I digress. I used to have a big crush on Garrett Hedlund and he led the story well. Olivia Wilde is not my favorite actress by any means. I didn't hate her in this but I didn't think her character was really necessary. Seems like she should've played a bigger part considering her character's…
