    Tron Legacy

    Tron Legacy (2010)

    The plot of the movie is that of Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) , the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn(Jeff Bridges),who tries to look into the disappearance of his father which leads him to the virtual world his father's been trapped in for almost 2 decades. What follows is a stunning visual delight with some edgy fight and chase sequences, displaying great maneuvers!!!! Sheer Visual Treat..!!

    In this movie, the soundtrack (courtesy Daft Punk) comes as the real winner. It makes the complete feel of the Virtual world so real and upbeat that it is hard not to enjoy. The fights and clash along with some very ecstatic tracks feels terrific.

    The script is the real culprit which takes the entire feel to an unexpected low. The characters are weak, so is the acting, even Bridges could not give justice to his "Kevin Flynn" character. But CLU was very well played by him(Yeah, Jeff Bridges appears in 2 Guises).

    Sam(Garrett) is just another character played in a very cliched (C)d manner. Olivia Wilde is also just OK as the doe eyed "Quorra". Michael Sheen as "Castor" has a sort a cameo. But still his 5 minutes of screen presence impressed me.

    Director's job is just OK. Not extraordinary. The original TRON ('82) was a cult movie then. Although the descent of technology makes this one visually spectacular but fails to keep the audience engaged on the story line.
