Trivia

The song "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" by Journey coming on in the arcade, when Sam turned on the breakers, is ironic in more ways than one. While the song fits in some ways the relationship with his father, it is interesting to note that many of the 45rpm singles made in the early 1980s for jukeboxes of that song, featured the song "Only Solutions" (from the original Tron movie's arcade scene) as the single's B-side. It was common for record companies to put a recent, though out of date, release as the B-side of Jukebox 45s, to maximize band airplay in those machines. See more »

Goofs

When CLU holds the speech in front of his army, there is a close up of one of his soldiers' helmets. CLU is seen mirrored right in the centre of the visor. In the next shot we see CLU standing on his podium yet not a single soldier is actually standing in front of him. The reflections on all visors should thus, with all soldiers looking straight ahead, either be on the left or the right sides of the visors, but never centered. See more »

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.

Late sequel with rousing images and fantastic computer generator scenarios
5 September 2011 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This belated follow-up deals with Sam Flynn ( a brave young man well played by Garrett Hedlund ) , a rebellious 27-year-old , is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father , a computer genius named Kevin Flynn ( the old creator whiz who was flapped inside a computer game , being stunningly performed by veteran Jeff Bridges ) , a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer . When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn's Arcade -- a signal that could only come from his father-- he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years . During his investigation Sam is zapped into another dimension and finds himself a player in a giant gladiatorial video-game competition . As he is sucked inside a powerful computer where he must fight for his life but with the help of the fearless warrior Quorra ( a gorgeous Olivia Wilde ), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a cyber universe -- a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain ( a computer generated Jeff Bridges who with his charisma keeps afloat the film ) who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

It's an agreeable , if somewhat light-headed piece of escapism with state-of-art special effects . Big-budgeted film led to break into the booming Sci-Fi/adventure/fantasy market full of inventiveness and imagination . This exciting movie is full of thrills , action-packed , fights , tension, suspense and overwhelming races , but also several commercial elements , including computer-simulated violence . This is a dynamic, fast-paced and amusing movie . Full of action, it's complemented by spectacular scenes , breathtaking flights and duels with illuminated disks . Stunning action though the story runs out of steam too soon , however the thrilling ending arises the film . The flick relies heavily on the overlong and death-defying races that are incredible and magnificently made by 3D computer generator . The tale moves like a supersonic bullet for most of its running time and the last generation of fantastic computer generator effects steal the show . Contrived beyond belief with spectacular motorcycle races that play like video games , but slickly calculated to please 2010 audiences and children especially . Garrett Hedlund is good as valiant racer , he's an instinctive , stubborn and valiant young man . Olivia Wilde is beautiful as computer-generated young . Michael Sheen stands out as ceremony master in a similar acting to Joel Grey-Cabaret . Colorful cinematography plenty of neon and glittering color by Claudio Miranda . Impressive and groundbreaking production design by Darren Gilford . Stirring and moving musical score by Punk , though composed by means of synthesizer . The motion picture is well directed by Joseph Kosinski . This is a superior sequel , much better that original ¨Tron¨ by Steven Lisberger , now as producer,that proved to be a precursor for the modern cinema and also with the same actors as Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner , though doesn't appears David Warner , the former baddie as corporate executive realizing evil-doings , here replaced by Michael Sheen and Jeff Bridges in double role as good and bad guy . Rating : 6,5 . Good , well worth watching , the movie boasts some impressive C.G. animation , reaching a high level of entertainment and excitement commensurate with its effect budget .
