Tron Legacy Reviews
November 23, 2014
Better than the original: This movie trades the first one's religious allegory to a anti-Nazi one, which is kinda weird but it works within the context of the film. The film as a whole feels a lot more developed than the original, which is good as the original, to me felt like concepts looking for a better movie. A lot of people note the seemingly bad CGI used for Jeff Daniels however I did not notice a problem, plus within the actual movie there is an explanation for it.

Though there are things missing from the picture my main problem was the invisible sense of humor. It just makes the mood of the film seem daunting rather than fun. However the visuals and production values are very impressive and overall Tron Legacy is a fairly enjoyable picture.

Thanks to its fascinating cast of characters and spectacular visual effects and graphics also combined with a super-hip-groovy and fun soundtrack composed by Daft Punk and an easy story to follow, TRON: Legacy, the quite hopefully FIRST sequel to the original 1982 film TRON, is one of the very best science-fiction films that I, for one, have EVER seen in my entire lifetime! Strongly recommended.
The film takes place two decades and seven years after the end of the first film, and its main plot takes place two decades after its beginning. Flynn disappears for twenty years, and his son Sam is under the impression that he abandoned him, right up until the moment their old friend, Alan Bradley comes to visit Sam, and gives him a hint about his dad, which convinces him to go and save his long-lost father; but simultaneously, they also have to stop Flynn's program CLU from invading the world of the Humans. In the end, his father never made it back to the Human world, but we never know: did he really die after merging with CLU and imploding, or is it just an ambiguous disappearance? That leaves open room for a possible third TRON film, which is, eve, as we speak, in development! Definitely the continuation of a promising franchise not sure to fail, and has become my SECOND personal fav. sci-fi franchise and alternative universe ever, behind only Star Trek, and ahead of The X-Files.
Now on to the cast of characters. Veteran films-driven-with-dazzling-visual-effects actor Jeff Bridges delivered a BRILLIANT performance as one of its leading characters, Kevin Flynn, and its primary villain, CLU. In the original, he was totally "dude", and this one, he's STILL got his "dude" mojo. However, now this might not matter so much to most people, but after watching this film, my FATHER's main concern is that Flynn kept calling his son, Sam, Kiddo; and my father's always going like "HUH?", even after I explained to him the fact that he hadn't seen his son for twenty years; but I, for one, really don't care. Meanwhile, Olivia Wilde amazingly portrays quite a gorgeous and stunning isomorphic algorithm named Quorra with quite a fascinating personality; she lives with Flynn as his surrogate-daughter-figure, and dreams of the world of the Users, us humans who write and create the programs. I guess in a way, that's how her character can relate a bit to Ariel from 1989's The Little Mermaid. Then aiming towards Michael Sheen: Castor/Zuse, the flamboyant owner of the End of Line Club, is such a character, and his humor is quite amazingly similar to David Bowie.
However, the visuals are just SPECTACULAR, and should DEFINITELY be considered as a new generation of sci-fi films for future references.
And as for the score composed by Daft Punk, it is totally super-hip-groovy and fun, as it blends traditional orchestral/classical sounds heard in the background music to ANY type of media, and the group's traditional electronic sounds. Should DEFINITELY be considered for any and all future sci-fi films, as well! And perhaps one of the coolest things is that Daft Punk has worked with film-makers before in the past, and they have a cameo appearance in the film as the End of Line Club's two masked DJs! Radical, man!
So, in short, definitely recommended! But if you don't want to see it, I totally understand.

one of the best movies in my personal opinion

Only bad thing about this movie is it leaves you craving more.

It's good, it's one of a kind, it's different. The best visuals and 3-d for a future robot movie, and the best big-screen viewing experience in terms of rich digestability I've ever experienced. An amazing movie. Very creative action scenes. This whole idea of a fantasy world that is part cgi part human actors is amazing to look at. I couldn't believe my eyes. One of the best dazzlers ever... amazing special effects and good, expendable workhorse characters that did their job well without a lot of sizzle - and cut straight to the kung fu action. It was stunning and one of a kind. An amazing thrill ride and an undeniable treat.

Visually gorgeous, yet abysmally retarded, this outrageously poor follow-up to such a ground-breaking film was better off left in someone's mind. While I'm not averse to the movie-with-a-message, this movie was so ridiculously PC it made me openly groan several times during the movie. Instead of respecting the first film's cutting edge theme, the filmmakers chose to one-up the graphics, which with 25+ years-later technology available, I would certainly expect, and dumb-down (while simultaneously backslapping the heart) the concept that was so pioneering that it was better left alone. Unfortunately, in between weak, watered-down action scenes, we get elementary dialogue, poor acting and way too many messages about why building the perfect digital world has made us neglect and forget the perfect world in which we already live. To top it off, we have a techie-gone-hippie Kevin Flynn, played by a tepid performance by Jeff Bridges who can't help but occasionally morph into "The Dude." Sure, we all change as we get older. And, absolutely, we come to appreciate the world around us more as we increase with age, but this movie needed a Wachowski Brothers-like approach to the action and deep theme in order to warrant any serious consideration. Instead it was written by people who have spent more time on CW teen dramas than anything of technical substance. If you haven't seen it and love the first one, don't waste your time or memories on Tron Legacy.

The special effects may overtake character development, but Tron Legacy is exceedingly entertaining sci-fi fun, and it's always a treat to see Jeff Bridges in the roll of Kevin Flynn.

This is all a cyberpunk flick that I needed, awesome visuals, unique group of people and living, Daft Punk music of course and obviously everybody wants Jeff Bridges to be their dad.

Si no fuera por los efectos, y por DaftPunk, no hubiera valido la pena. Creo que es una de las peores películas que he esperado.
Tiene de malo que algunos efectos en el trailer no aparecen en la película y que se obstinen en que los computadores hablan con voz entrecortada y por sílabas, no sé si ese efecto se me antoje «Techno»; pero lo peor es que en el final el viejo Flynn se inmola.
Tiene de positivo que se involucre mujeres, puesto que la original era predominantemente masculina, los decorados son muy buenos en general todos los espacios muy bien diseñados y excelente que a las trayectorias se les haya introducido curvatura.

Amazing 3D Visual Graphics!
Pros: Daft Punk music
Cons: Plot and story are disappointing..

Not one of the best movies, but certainly not the worst. Action packed with a twinge of love between a father and son in a unique environment.

The sequel to the classic innovated film - with the first use of computer-animation in live action - is better than its predecessor, and one of 2010's many best films. (A-)
(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

I like this movie more each time I watch it. There are a few minor story flaws, but some were necessary to push the story along.

Best. Soundtrack. Ever.

This is visually breathtaking. But the plot and the characters are a repetition of the first movie.
