The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father's corrupted creation and a unique ally who was born inside the digital world.
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
Michael Sheen is a very big fan of the original Tron and when he was offered the role of Zuse, he wanted to immediately accept the role. Sheen's agents didn't want Disney to find out that he wanted to be in the film badly, because then Disney could get away with paying Sheen an incredibly low sum of cash for his acting. See more »
In the "Disk Wars" scene where Sam fights Combatant 7 (round 2), he "de-reses" his opponent with one throw then slides/falls down one level, without retrieving his disk. However, his disk has magically reattached to his back even before he lets go to drop down, and keeps it on up to his final round with Rinzler. (So technically, he had two disk too, he just lost one...) See more »
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.
That's right, man. I got in.

At the beginning of the movie, the title only says "TRON". Not until during the ending credits does the name "Legacy" get included in the title when it reappears. See more »
It's not highly likely to win many new converts, but for those who already like the original and want to see more of that world, it more than satisfies. The visuals are a wonderful evolution from Tron and the story of a father and son who have to make up for lost time is very touching. The CGI face they developed for Jeff Bridges is not perfect, but it works very well with just a few exceptions and I feel, for my own tastes, that they have actually bridged the uncanny valley with this one. Still a bit of work to get it perfect, but this one works as it is. Oh, and the score by Daft Punk is beautiful. The first thing my brother and I did after leaving the theater was buy the sound track on the way home. It's very suggestive of the original but with plenty of today's newer sensibilities mixed in.
