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…
My pick for an upcoming "movies we have an irrational affection for" episode of Movies Now and Then
When I talk about Tron: Legacy, I often find myself jumping to the defensive, trying to respond to criticisms made against the film, but that's not what I want to do here. I'm a defensive guy and I can recognize that about myself, but I don't have any interest in explaining why the film's weaknesses don't bother me. Obviously they don't or I wouldn't be here watching it again for the second time in less than a month. I want to tell you why I love it.
First and foremost, I love it because it is a beautiful audio-visual experience. It's easy…
I keep coming back to this flick.
I've got love for you if you like this movie.

Nearly thirty years after TRON dazzled critics and audiences alike, Joseph Kosinski returned to the Grid in TRON Legacy, a thrilling sequel that far outshines its predecessor with a spellbinding soundtrack and a breathtaking atmosphere. The city in the circuits is given a modern day makeover, lined with a neverending stretch of blue neon and populated with masses of digitized programs. Jeff Bridges reprises his role from the original film, bringing along some traces of his iconic The Dude Lebowski and a considerable amount of experience.
The score by Daft Punk is by far what makes TRON Legacy what it is. Their soundtrack is an intense emotional rush, perfectly accompanying the digital world that the audience is thrown into. Each…
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.

Rewatched for an upcoming podcast episode on movies we love more than everybody else seems to. Needed to make sure I still like it as much as I remembered.
I'm just so charmed with how earnest it is. It takes a very specific kind of big action special effects blockbuster to interrupt its plot in order to have a main character describe a sunrise, only to later double down on this overblown emotional beat by ending the movie with a callback to it, as if no one had ever used a sunrise to represent beauty before.
I'll give Tron: Legacy the full Screening Notes treatment soon (probably after the podcast), but if you're hungry for some fan love, check out this article I did a couple years ago about the differences and similarities between Legacy and the original Tron.
End of line.
I want Daft Punk to be my boyfriend.
this movie ,, holy shit ,, i saw this back in 2010 when it first came out and i walked out of the theater CHANGED. i was 11 when i saw it & before seeing it i didnt really pay as much attention to cinema in general but i credit this movie for sparking my interest. olivia wildes character quorra was one of the first female characters that i ever was insprired by. garrett hedlund became one of my favorite actors. totally watch the first tron from the 80s as well if you liked this movie. forever waiting for tron 3.
Beyond its beautiful crystal clear neon construct this long awaited sequel really felt too hollow... but when this 3 star film with a clunky script bursts into glorious 1.78:1 full screen format and the Daft Punk soundtrack starts pumping through the 5.1 surround sound it all becomes very clear why I always end up watching this Blu ray again and again... Sorry neighbours.
Eine Light-Show-Achterbahn inklusive Quantenteleportation und isomorphe Algorithmen. Mitunter gibt es Langeweile statt Spannung, dafür aber wilde Achterbahnfahrten und wunderbare Details. schoener-denken.de/blog/tron-legacy/
A terrific directorial debut, marred only by minor screenplay issues.
Great cast, insane visual design, and a perfect Daft Punk score all add up to a fun experience. One of the best sequels from Disney.
Love this film, and always fun to revisit. While the story leaves something to be desired, this movie gets points simply from the stunning visuals and top-notch score (which I listen to often). Plus, I mean... Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges. Come on.
I've grown to really like this movie, more so than the original. I can recognize its not the greatest thing ever but that doesn't bother me. For me this does what any good sequel should do and that's grow upon whatever came before while still maintaining something that makes it its own thing. The cinematography, daft punks score, and the visual effects help make this, in my opinion at least, one of the better blockbusters to come out this decade
So I'll start this review by telling you why I decided to watch this movie. It all started on a podcast I did with Ian Fastert. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=azuVqSiq8Ek&t=2475s ) and there was some talk about this movie. It is one of his favorite movies so when in the video rental place I saw this movie sitting there and I thought to myself "Why not.".
So yes I decided to watch this and going in I didn't exactly know what to expect. I mean I knew very little about the movie and when it came out I had zero interest in watching it. (To be fair though I never really had a lot of interest in a whole lot of movies before…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
