For some reason critics were unimpressed by this movie. I'm not sure what they were expecting, the original Tron was trippy cult film at best. At worst, it was a cheesy B movie with cool special effects. Tron Legacy suffered from being released in a time when every movie had to be a franchise building blockbuster to be considered successful. While this movie was considered an overall failure after hitting theaters, I really liked it. It had a goofy plot, but there was no way around that while sticking to the original story-line. Computers and the web are not the mysterious, magical things they seemed to be when the first Tron was released. Knowing that, the movie is far more enjoyable if you don't over analyze it. See it as more 'Chronicles of Narnia' than 'The Matrix'. The movie also should have probably been called 'Clu' or 'Tron: Clu', since Tron is neither the primary protagonist or the main antagonist of the film.

Kevin Flynn seems to have disappeared. His son, Sam Flynn, begins a search in hopes of finding him and ends up in a virtual world. His father has been in this world for 20 years, and when Kevin finds him, they go on a journey across the beautiful tech-world, which has become very dangerous. They go along with Quorra, who is very close to Kevin. The problem is, CLU, a program, has set its sights on the real world. CLU is already in control of the cyber world. They must prevent CLU from jeopardizing the real world. Also, the visuals are amazing in this movie, with a stunningly beautiful cyber world.

Underrated movie where the critics were dead wrong. Sure the plot is a little weak and predictable, but those Lightcycles though. If you are considering watching this, tick da place a hold button right now.

Tries to be TRON tries to be The Matrix and tries to be Star Wars. The story felt like they were writing it while they were shooting the movie. Some scenes feel like they have no reason for being in the movie. You will ask yourself what does this have to do with anything in the story for example the bar scene. The ending just felt like the writer was thinking my god this is already to long I need to end it now with out thinking it through. The example Flynn does something he could have done so early in the film that you are left scratching your head and asking why did he not do this in the first place? This sums it all up a Disney cash grab by trying to trick cult followers into thinking this was a good sequel.

I think plot was predictable and not interesting. I found myself in the beginning of the movie knowing the whole plot. the characters made pointless decisions and overall were very ignorant esp. the protagonist. Though the antagonist was a bit mysterious but a little too boring as an actor. The graphics weren't too bad, I think all of the stripes and lights made it seem cool and futuristic but really it was just a bad movie! The only good thing is that it wasn't as bad as the first movies!!!

What took me so long to see this??? Visually stunning, to be sure, but not just the scenes set inside "The Grid", even the night time street photography of San Francisco was mesmerizing in High Def. And that soundtrack: Wow! Perhaps not since Vangelis did the score for "Alexander" there has not been such a perfect pairing of artist and film as Daft Punk and the digital world of Tron. My only complaint is how the "de-aged" Jeff Bridges face the used suffered mightily from the so-called "Uncanny Valley" effect. It may have been impressive in very small doses, but to use it so continually just detracted from the rest of the film. Also, the usually dependable Michael Sheen's glorified cameo in Ziggy Stardust gear did not really work for me. Still, for sheer thrills and ambition, 8.5/10, easy.
