Tron: Legacy 3D

Sam (Garrett Hedlund), the son of famous video-game developer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), has been haunted for a long time by his father's mysterious disappearance. A strange signal draws Sam to Flynn's Arcade, and he is pulled into the same cyberworld in which his father, its creator, has been trapped for 20 years. With fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), Kevin and Sam seek to escape from a universe that, while magnificent, is far more advanced and dangerous than Kevin had ever imagined.

Dec 22, 2010 - Alifeurd on Tron: Legacy 3D

This one is difficult to rate for me because I am very critical about movies I am amped up to see. Even though I had an enjoyable time & will definitely watch Tron:Legacy again, I can only bring myself to rate it as mediocre.

The negative-
Really, the plot was nothing to bat an eyelash at: it didn't need to be Tron, it could have been the plot of any cyber-action-fantasy movie. The commercials covered the beginning, middle & end of this tale already, so the storyline was never what had me bouncing in my seat with anticipation as the lights in the theater dimmed. There was a bland stroll of acting ability throughout this presentation, which was semi-salvaged by Jeff Bridges. If your only remarkable actor is a known for sincere yet subtle character studies, don't be surprised if the audience finds the fate of the cast inconsequential.

The positive-
Even though the story was heavily lacking & superbly cheesy at times, it did follow the hero's journey to a T. Again, nothing overly original, but Disney has quite a bit of experience here, making each acme of "the journey" the interesting aspects of the story. The visuals & wardrobe were absolutely stunning, which accompanied fantastic action sequences, creating breathtaking moments in cinematic history (although I don't think we're quite at the point where we can make a CGI person look real). One of the other top selling points was the musical score. I have a bit of a biased opinion because of the fact that Daft Punk is one of my favorite bands, but the duo provided a soundtrack which completely & appropriately immersed me as a viewer.

As a sequel & in regards to plot, Tron: Legacy failed to appease me... But I'll be damned if it wasn't visually beautiful & highly entertaining.

Yep, you can skip 3D with this one. The 3D only comes in the grid, everything else is in 2D version. But other than that, I enjoyed the the story line a lot. The movie offers a nice imaginary word in the chips, great visual effects. There are lots of fighting and racing scene but no blood just digital bits. Everyone is in tight body suits, but not one scene of intimacy. So this movie is perfect for little boys who is fascinated with the computers.

The young Kevin Flynn looks way too computer animated.

Visually Stimulating

I loved this film! Technically incredible on just about every level, a feast for the eyes and ears, a totally mind-blowing 3D experience. After seeing it in 3D I felt the effect was so subtle that it made those very effect unnecessary, it enhance the film momentarily, but really didn't seem to be a benefit which I liked but found ridiculous for the ticket price.

However the superbly choreographed action set pieces, a fantastically sexy and stylishly futuristic art and design style, a brilliant fusion of electronic and orchestral music (Daft Punk is an inspired choice and do one hell of a job, easily the stars of the show along with the visuals), and an intriguing, well developed (if slightly confusing at times) story driven by quality actors (Jeff Bridges is excellent in dual roles as are Garett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Micheal Sheen who is gold whatever he does), fantastic 3D (love how it kicks into 3 dimensions only when you are transported into The Grid), and all in all an awe-inspiring sequel that continues to revolutionise in the same way the original did. The world of Tron looks stunning with beautiful visuals ranging from awesome bikes and other assorted vehicles to sexy costumes all shining with florescent neon colours, a mix of sleek black and cool blue adorned with a fluorescent hue which looks deliciously unique and beautifully original.

My only complaints the dodgy looking young Jeff Bridges (done with computer animation, at times he looked okay but the majority you could tell it was off, an orchestral score sounded like The Dark Knight or Inception at times with it's repetitive use of a few notes and droning noises which seems to be a recent trend but the electronic side of the music dulled the issue Daft Punk made the suspense and make the heart beat of this film.

It was a superb sequel that brings the world of Tron back for a new generation. It's definitely a movie which takes the core element of what was so great about the first and updates it for modern audiences without losing what the purpose was about.

It's a definitive sequel that does what a sequel should do very well; respecting it's source yet expanding on it and it's mythology- as well as respecting it's long term fanbase.

Get over to the theaters now if you haven't seen it, it's worth it, I'm going to pay to see it again.

A nice upgrade to the original

I paid for the 3D version only to find out that most of the movie is in 2D. Save your money and just watch the 2D version!

But regardless, I enjoyed seeing The Grid, games and cycles in their new and improved cg world. The story was entertaining and the spandex outfits weren't too bad. Tron was in the movie for a bit but he wasn't a main character. I'm also amazed that this might be the only action movie that does not have a kissing scene! But I suppose it's not fundamental to the story.
