If you choose to see TRON: Legacy, leave your brain at home, and be ready to watch what boils down to a great dramatic Daft Punk music video.

The sequel's filmmakers haven't managed to solve the problem that blighted the original - namely once we get our characters on the grid, then what?

I'm not saying don't bother seeing it, because there's still some fun to be had from the swaggering, fragmented plot, I'm just saying that we deserved much better.

Legacy's upgrade only amplifies the lameness of the original minus its time-capsule likeability.

There are two great potholes all sequels face and must avoid if they have any hope of succeeding. TRON: Legacy doesn't stumble into them so much as jump head first without a parachute.

Disney may be looking for a merchandising bonanza with this long-gestating sequel to the groundbreaking 1982 film, but someone in the corporate offices forgot to add any human interest to its action-heavy script.

To say that belated sequel Tron: Legacy looks amazing is both to praise and to condemn it; 30 years from now, it will probably seem just as dated as its predecessor.

TRON: Legacy does not deserve to be written off as empty spectacle but it really does miss the magic of the original film.

There's nothing to like.

...the story's filled with cardboard outlines of characters plodding their way through a series of chase and action scenes that don't add up to anything resembling an original idea

Tron: Legacy could get away with a script as stupid as the one it has if the movie crackled, if any of the actors popped or if any of the action scenes felt truly next level or groundbreaking.

A wash of light, colour and sound that forgoes the most basic elements of cinema.

Legacy is sort of a one-trick pony. After you get past the neon-glow costumes, whizzing Frisbee weapons and cyberspace backdrop, there really isn't much to get excited about.

They had 28 years, and this is the best they could come up with?

TRON: Legacy proves once again that movies can be incubators for exciting technological and F/X advances... while leaving our need for narrative unsatisfied.

It's a sullen affair, dominated by a grim visual palette that intrigues for about 30 minutes.

It's dispiriting to see how little attention the filmmakers have paid to the dramatic -- read human -- possibilities of the original, or how much they've been overwhelmed by technology's demands.

Kosinski was probably so excited about getting the opportunity to attach his name to something he enjoyed as a kid, he forgot that the original film is infantile, a show-off for early CGI, and that trying to take infantilism seriously is a major mistake.
Leo Robson

December 15, 2010
There have been a number of technical developments in the intervening years, but none of them does the new film any good.

As hard as I tried to enjoy Tron: Legacy I kept wondering how much longer I would be trapped in the computer world on screen.
