Tron: Legacy REVIEW

Last Friday I saw Disney’s 3D Tron: Legacy with my friends. This is my review of it.

When Sam Flynn, the son of Kevin Flynn (brilliant video game designer who has been missing for 20 years), gets a page from his father’s decrepit office, he goes to investigate. In a hidden tunnel behind a Tron machine, Sam finds his father’s secret works. He gets sucked into the world of Tron, a futuristic utopia. He thinks he has found his father, but it is really Cluu, a corrupted clone of Kevin, that his father created to help him build the world. Cluu thrusts Sam into a vicious gladiator arena where the weapons are ‘identity disks’, lightsaber-like disks that contain all the knowledge of the owner.  He is saved by Quorra, and taken to his father’s hideout.  After Sam and Kevin’s reunion, they have to devise a plan to escape the virtual world.

I really enjoyed this movie because I love video games, and in about 95% of the movie, they were in a video game world.  The fight scenes with the lightcycles and identity disks were also great.  The wacky futuristic costumes that everyone wore was a nice touch.  The world of Tron is a futuristic, action-packed utopia, or dystopia.  Overall, I rate this movie an 8 out of 10.

    Great blog! I love movies, particularly scifi (or is it syfy now?). I’m definitely going to see this one. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Haven’t seen this one, but did see the first one. It wasn’t really memorable, so hoping this one is better.

    I saw the original Tron in a theatre in Sunnyvale in the summer of 1982. Funny how I still look the same, but Jeff Bridges has aged!

  4. Can’t wait to get this! I can feel a sick day coming so I can stay home from Uni and waste time playing this.
