Uninspired, Unimpressive, Dull And Redundant
Every once in awhile, we get to see a film aimed at displaying the latest advancements in movie magic. Movies such as this prove to be simple escapist entertainment that is meant to take the viewer along for its ride, and not much else. However, I think escapist entertainment is just another excuse of a mediocre film, since movies such as “The Matrix”, the anime “Spirited Away” and even the recently released “Inception” have managed to impress with a compelling …

Reviewing Tron Legacy is hard.  It is not a bad movie by any means but as I watched and observed it seemed as though there was something missing.  Along those lines it's not that Tron Legacy has nothing to offer, it's more that it's a movie that offers little more than it's own visually stimulation.  This wouldn't be bad at all IF Tron Legacy didn't try so hard to try to say something.  And we'll get to that.      By watching the …

I never thought I would like this movie so much
“Tron Legacy eh? Isn’t Tron that weird old movie with the terrible computer graphics?”      Those were my first words when I heard of this movie. I remember watching Tron as a kid it came on the Disney Channel one day while watching I thought it was the coolest and weirdest thing ever. Obviously as a 9 year old kid I was really only watching it for the Light Cycle battles. I saw bits and pieces of it again a few years ago on TV I was channel surfing between …

**1/2 out of ****      2010 seems to be a huge year for sequels. Long-awaited sequels in particular. First, we got "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps". Then we get "Tron: Legacy". So how has "Tron" aged in 30 years? Somewhat well. The sequel isn't half bad either, and in all respect it is every bit as average as the original. In an attempt to get an actual audience this time around, the filmmakers decided to have Jeff Bridges reprise his role as …

Let's be clear on something here, just to be sure we understand: The original Tron was NOT about characters or plot! Never, ever! It really wasn't - it was written and directed with every intention of being an excuse to show off Disney's new-fangled array of whiz-bang special effects. Although the special effects in the original Tron look badly dated by today's standards, back then they were a revolution, with Disney ushering in the official age of computer effects and using Tron as a way to intimidate …

   Ok, so it’s been almost a full day since I saw this movie and I’ve had to spend quite a lot of time, much more than usual, sorting out what I thought and what I wanted to write about it. The plot is pretty basic. The 1989 version of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), disappears. Twenty years later his son (Garrett Hedlund), goes looking for him. He gets sucked into the computer world where an evil program, Clu (Jeff Bridges), is masterminding a plot to take over the real world. …

   This time last year, almost to the day, James Cameron’s Avatar was released to fantastic reviews and an accolade of awards, leaving just as many viewers saying “meh” as there were praising it as “the best movie of all time”. I’ll admit I was one of the viewers in the middle. It’s not a bad film, in fact its visual flair and ambition are the best things about it, but it’s not a film I would consider a front runner for Best Picture, an …

      This is a very ambiguous movie if you're trying to contemplate about it too much. It may appear to be a groundbreaking science fiction but it also may look like another pale blockbuster saved only by the visual effects. I'm not one of those Tron fanboys and I will not criticize the movie just for fun but I need to say that this film lacks in substance. You don't need to see the first movie to really connect the stories because there's an intro and many references …

Tron: Legacy is a slicker, sexier, and faster movie than its predecessor - which for a movie about the digital world, makes perfect sense.      I took two of my daughters with me to see it, one of whom is just a couple years older than I was when I saw the original Tron, eons ago. I remember getting lost in the idea of a world inside the computer, programs represented as individuals, digital pathways traveled like roads, and games where the stakes were more real than I had ever …

Is it wrong of me to prefer logic over spectacle? Did I miss the point when I left “Tron: Legacy” feeling it was a monumental failure as a story? If I’m to continue with this review, I must first make it clear that I don’t see the “Tron” films in the same way a lot of people do. I don’t believe they deserve praise simply for their innovative special effects; I personally require an engaging plot, character development, and the sense that it’s operating …

'Tron Legacy' More Advanced, Less Worthwhile
If nothing else, Tron Legacy is Sci-Fi eye-candy. I truly remember the original back in the early eighties. It transported me to a place I had never been before. In college video games had invigorated our recreation time with Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Centipede, which gave us study breaks and a hefty escape from the pressures of college. Tron delivered us into that same world in a sustaining way by combining a convincing mix of arcade life and real life. The visuals and the world created there …

1982 was a great year for fantasy and sci-fi films. It saw the release of The Dark Crystal, Blade Runner, The Thing, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and, of course, the all conquering E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Also released was Steven Lisberger's Tron. While it certainly wasn't the best movie released that year, it was definitely the most technically ground breaking and perhaps (along with The Dark Crystal) one of the most daring. Tron pioneered the use of computer graphics imagery and …

Do We Really Want our Fantasy Worlds to Look More Real?
The great thing about the advances in CGI and animation the last few years has been that so many things look so much more realistic than they used to. This is also the terrible thing about these advances, because after all, isn’t the fun of the movies, at least sometimes, that they allow us to inhabit a world that isn’t our own?      “Tron” and “Tron:Legacy” are another example of this principle at work. The original “Tron,” while …

Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is taking his normal night shift at work when he mysteriously disappears with no evidence of where he was going, or for how long. Many years later when one of his old friends gets a page from Flynn's office, Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) Kevin Flynn's son, decides to look into his father's disappearence more, despite giving up hope long ago of ever seeing him again. Sam Flynn then finds himself trapped in the cyber space world that his father has also been trapped …

                “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, I got in!” And so begins the story of Tron Legacy with a great opening musical bit by Draft Punk.          …

Arguably the best looking film of 2010 this sequel to the not so classic classic "Tron" rises above the limitations of its story and its screenplay to become one of 2010's most enjoyable and extravagant visually spectacles. "Tron Legacy" is one of the best Sci-Fi/action thrillers of the year a true visual treat for the eyes and the senses this is a can't miss for any hardcore action junkie or Sci-Fi addict, this is a return to the classic style of films that Disney put …

Tough gig, you would think, reprising a film that sank almost without trace 28 years ago. But Tron sank in heavy seas: it was released within a month of Stephen Spielberg's E.T. - The Extra Terrestrial and a fortnight of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, both by common consent amongst the inner circle of all-time science fiction greatness, and against both it does seem rather a pale facsimile. Yet it does have its adherents: it picked up and kept a cult following, some of whose membership were in evidence …

So is it worth seeing? Sure, but you're going to have to tolerate a few things. Mostly the forgettable story, but it IS easy on the eyes, the ears and from a technical standpoint there's quite a bit to admire because so much of it is done so well. It's trying for that complexity and meaning that keeps Tron Legacy from being great. Here's a little reality for you: Sometimes simplicity really is the key. And just because a movie lacks depth does not make it a bad movie. It's because Tron tries to …
