There's an undeniable appeal at its core - in its sincere approach to ridiculous concepts, in its resistance toward quipping at its own expense.

Tron: Legacy is a fun popcorn flick if you had the opportunity to catch it on the big screen, but with the digital effects downsized on a DVD format what's good about the movie doesn't emit as much of an effect.

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.

Like the original, Tron: Legacy obsesses over technology and style but forgets important details like character and plot.

After a leisurely real-world prologue and a big first-act gladiatorial sequence, the movie comes to a crashing halt — and never really gets going again prior to the stumbling, muddled climax.

[At] a certain point no amount of blue, red, orange, yellow and white color motifs can hide a tired narrative that continually drifts of into sentimentality so ripe you can smell it three screening rooms away.

It is genuinely exciting to see where this brave new world of CGI and 3D is leading. But on the whole, this isn't really much of a legacy -- or even as much fun as a round of Space Invaders.

For a far more thought-provoking tale about the virtual realm, try The Social Network.

It's a triumph of streamlined design, but TRON: Legacy never enters the fourth dimension where it's worth a plugged nickel to humans.

Despite all the gloom and grandiosity, this can be a fun movie, particularly for those willing to sit back and let it wash over them.

Tron: Legacy is the kind of sensory-onslaught blockbuster that tends to put me to sleep, the way babies will nap to block out overwhelming stimuli.
December 17, 2010
TRON: Legacy proves once again that movies can be incubators for exciting technological and F/X advances... while leaving our need for narrative unsatisfied.
December 17, 2010
Another weak story with sub-B-movie dialogue, partly compensated for by intensely conceived geometric design and special effects.
December 17, 2010
Lots of sizzle, not much soul, and very little sense.
December 17, 2010
Was it really necessary to wait 28 years for a sequel that wasn't worth attempting in the first place?
December 17, 2010
It's still a soulless machine for making Disney mountains of cash, of course, but you can feel it striving to be more. Which is, at the end of the game, what singularity is all about.
December 17, 2010
Director Joseph Kosinski has a recipe for adventure that should delight gamers. Non-techies are on their own.
December 17, 2010
The only way to see "Tron: Legacy" is in IMAX 3-D, so the full visual freakiness can engulf you and be appreciated the way you used to light up at the thought of a laser show set to "Dark Side of the Moon."

For all of its buggy storytelling, "Tron: Legacy" plugs into your cerebral cortex and makes it sizzle.
