TRON LEGACY Movie Review

I scooped this from Legacy: An IMAX 3D Experience is THE BEST!! (my opinion)

Runtime:2 hr. 7 min.

PGSequences of sci-fi action violence and brief mild language.

Tron: Legacy” is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), 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 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), 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.Read More

The OLD TRON bio: My opinion a movie WAY before its time.

A hacker is literally abducted into the world of a computer and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program.


Let's just say, I enjoyed this movie and so did my kids. My teens never saw the original (1st movie in this series) TRON, but that didn't stop them from enjoying the vivid colors, fight scenes and suspense of TRON LEGACY. The writers did a good job of making the story plausible for those that had seen the original TRON and for the newbies it told the story in a father and son scene to bring those new TRON lovers up to date. My teens were impressed with the colors, 3D shots of battles and the overal look of the computerized world called the GRID. The story was simplistic, the characters likeable but to me...something was missing. I couldn't put my finger on what, but it caused me to take down my SNOWFLAKE rating to a 4 out of 5 SNOWFLAKES. A descent movie to take the teenagers to, but my 7yr old active kid got rather distracted, but his attention was grabbed during the action scenes. This one would be a fun movie to go to during the days after Christmas when you are trying to find something to do with your kids.

Was really bummed we didn't get to see it opening weekend (holiday parties out the wahoo!), but we'll be seeing it for sure at some point.

Thanks for the review!

From the ads, it looks visually cool, but not necessarily noteworthy. My kids want to see it though, and I think it's something dad will take them to.

Would I enjoy is w/o having seen the first one?

Chris, you would enjoy this without seeing the first one. Probably more than us that saw the first one. It was visually cool although light on plot and drama, but interesting visually and decent action scenes. Lisa, you kids will like it. My son said it's cooler than anything he's seen in awhile (but you know kids right?)

The visuals in these movies are always so fascinating that I sometimes forget to pay attention to the story.

I'm hoping to see this movie this very afternoon (and yep, I saw the original) :)

Wishing you a very merry Christmas,

I agree with you! Lots of hacking cases have been happening these days, so this movie is very timely. My children and I enjoyed it! I've seen her hairstyle in one of my wife's sepia wigs. There are lots of women who will imitate Quorra's hairstyle this year, I guess. What do you think?
