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.
The only way to win is to survive.

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.

(So technically, he had two disk too, he just lost one...) See more
