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.
How had I gone four years without seeing this film?
Yes, the plot is ropey, to say the least. Yes, Young-CGI-face Jeff Bridges is creepy to look at. Yes, the story is incredibly formulaic and predictable, but I am willing to overlook all of these things.
TRON: Legacy is, quite simply, a gorgeous-looking film. Everything about the visuals, the scenery, the costuming, the choreography, the landscapes and the props are stunning. What makes this even better, though, is that in…
Jeff Bridges and Michael Sheen are having a great time. The basic DNA / structure of the movie makes this a pretty classic adventure and hero's journey type of tale. Maybe audiences weren't ready for leading man Garret Hedlund. Possibly the ears of the movie-going world weren't ready for Daft Punk back in 2010, before they won every Grammy.
All of that aside - yeah, I can't really figure out why this isn't regarded much higher alongside some of the…
Soundtrack was amazing.
I don't get the ending.
Tron Legacy is a sequel to the 1982 film Tron, and stars two of the leads from the original (both Kevin Flynn and Alan Bradley). However the film makers seemingly understood the cult but none the less limited appeal and knowledge of the first film and thus made this follow up as accessible to new combers as it is fans of the original Tron.
The star of this film is a new character Sam, the son of Kevin Flynn. The…
Funciona como uma odisseia cibernética. É uma jornada interessante de se acompanhar e possui camadas o suficiente para torna-lo interessante. Os atores se empenham (Jeff Bridges que o diga) e o diretor tem ideia da importância do filme. Todos esses ingredientes são suficientes para torna-lo num épico, certo?
Em parte, sim. Mas o que não o torna épico não são grandes defeitos, mas sim os pequenos detalhes que são mal explorados, as pequenas relações que são mal explicadas.
Contudo, vale a hora e meia do seu tempo.
The (probably failed, although sequel talk is not entirely dead) reboot of the cyberspace classic Tron, a movie whose main legacy is a nostalgic attachment to bad computer graphics, always seemed like a strange choice, but fits into the minor trend to make movies that heavily references classic computer game, and in particular the arcade type.
The film do some things right, including letting French house legends Daft Punk write the soundtrack, but ultimately fails when just updating rather than…
