It may seem somewhat dated these days, but it would probably be fair to credit this Disney movie with being the forerunner of the Toy Story movies.

The visuals were groundbreaking and the famous light-cycle sequence is undeniably cool, but the years haven't been kind to the tech-talk script or offensive synth-mongous soundtrack.

Seeing it is like spending two hours in a hardware store gussied up with streamers and flashing lights. It's different, but it's not entertainment.

A wildly visual and imaginative science fiction adventure...

Story isn't the point here, nor are complex characters, potent themes or arch conversations. The film exists as spectacle in its purest form.

More important for its revolutionary visual effects than anything else, the film is both entertaining and prescient.

There's an undeniable cart-before-the-horse aspect to Tron...but Lisberger's film will always stand as a touchstone in the development of CGI as a storytelling tool... [Blu-ray]

For most people, TRON's importance is as a historical footnote. It's the Model T of our CGI age. But the film's fans are passionate ones.

Perhaps one of the more stunning features in motion picture history, creatively adapting mistakes and hunting invention, shaping a movie that displays such curiosity with technology and boldness with sci-fi fantasy.

Lessons of Darkness

Without the rosy filter of nostalgia, it's a virtually unwatchable virtual-reality saga.

Tron is at once a supremely silly movie and a groundbreaking one. It's best seen as the maiden voyage of an expedition that has led us to wonders like Gollum from the Lord of the Rings movies and Avatar.

Tron didn't just come up with a new special effects, it came up with new things to use those new kinds of special effects on.

It's as if Fritz Lang had set Metropolis, his silent, science-fiction classic, in a disco.

Not only does it introduce the humanity/technology themes that would surface in later cyberpunk fantasies, it boasts some of the most unique visuals in any film, then or now.

It's a simple idea that ought to serve, but Lisberger's failures of pacing, structure, variation, and characterization ultimately make the film seem monotonous and distant.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Although Tron's state-of-the-art, computer-generated visuals look primitive by current standards, it's intelligently conceived (on a visual level, at any rate) and largely good fun.

Tron is loaded with visual delights but falls way short of the mark in story and viewer involvement.
