Storyline

Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 20 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Quorra, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. Meanwhile, the malevolent program CLU, who dominates the digital world, plans to invade the real world and will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Written by ZootCatchy

Trivia

Quotes

[first lines]
Kevin Flynn: The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved 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...
7 Year Old Sam Flynn: You got in.
Kevin Flynn: That's right, man. I got in.

Slow, Boring, Incomplete and Pretty
18 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a sentence: Go watch the original. Unlike this sterilized computer generated FX production, it has a soul, and a script.

I had high hopes for TRON Legacy to rise above the many FX/3D releases that seem to flood the theaters lately. Afterall, TRON harnessed computer generated graphics nearly 30 years ago- and at that time, it was ground breaking. But now? sure, the graphics are improved, but so is every similar FX assisted production since 1982. Computers are faster, designers have more cpu power to play with, and 3D projection systems finally hit it right. But what about everything else that makes a movie? like.. a plot?

Sadly, TRON is just another casualty of eye candy. Whether it is the sublime virtual world which rehashes 28 year old ideas infused with modern pixel engines, or the pretty and naive Ms. Wilde tucked in her tights and serving as the Megan Fox of Tronville- TRON does not fly. It grudgingly crawls through a plot that is as expected and transparent as government propaganda: there's good, there's bad, there's conflict, and there's the evident triumph of good over evil. In the way, we meet characters which serve no point, have neither depth nor lifespan, and have nothing but to provide except for additional FX opportunities.

TRON closely follows the footsteps of AVATAR: a technological demo with a script that can fit in a brochure. Stunningly boring.

The ultimate star of the show, Bridges, tries hard but can't pull the plot on his own. Once in a while, he utters a notable comment with a hint of Big Lebowski which draws a few smiles, but has no one else in the cast to play with. Wilde plays a sexy role muttering a 3rd grader script, while Hedlund's role is the juvenile irresponsible punk with Brad Pitt and Robin Hood aspirations- leaving zero aftertaste. The only other memorable actor (besides Bridges) is Michael Sheen, which we're blessed with for far too few moments. Blame Disney for that choice.

Tron Legacy is a waste of time. 28 years ago, Tron felt as if it had been brought back from the future. The new incarnation is technology demo, with sprinkles of Bridges and a remarkable sound track. Do yourself a favor and watch something else.
