The visual appeal of the film is supported by a simple and well-crafted plot. [Full Review in Spanish]

I really thought it was a cool sci-fi film and something different and unique.

A thrilling film to watch just because the visuals are so precisely what they should be: transporting you both into and beyond a very specific time in our culture's videographic history.

While its visual effects have aged laughably poorly, the movie can be quite lovely to look at, particularly since its CGI isn't trying to represent anything more realistic than 1982-era CGI.

Dazzling but lightweight.

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.
April 2, 2014
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.

essential 80s, and it's glorious in that respect

A wildly visual and imaginative science fiction adventure...
May 14, 2013
Story isn't the point here, nor are complex characters, potent themes or arch conversations. The film exists as spectacle in its purest form.
August 16, 2011
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.
March 28, 2011
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.
December 17, 2010
...a hopelessly dated relic of the early 1980s...
December 17, 2010
Without the rosy filter of nostalgia, it's a virtually unwatchable virtual-reality saga.
December 13, 2010
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.
December 12, 2010
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.
