TRON Reviews

September 8, 2020
The first part of the movie makes very little sense, throwing jumbled gobs of jargon at the viewer in the hopes that they'll just accept the overload of information.

Although Tron, with all its jazzy computer-generated imagery, is intermittently fascinating to look at, it's a pretty poor excuse for a movie.

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 hopelessly dated relic of the early 1980s...

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

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.

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

Tron never reaches a level of excitement commensurate with its effects budget.

The movie's innovative digital special effects were jaw-dropping at the time and still seem pretty cool. But somehow the plot congeals early into an old-time medieval epic and gets pretty dull.

Its computer sequences exist in a blue-gray scheme filled with flashing lights, speeding objects and dizzying motion. Its visual effects are wonderfully new. They are also numbing after a while.

Apesar de sua contribuição para a evolução dos efeitos criados em computador, o filme possui um roteiro medíocre, representando um marco técnico, mas um fracasso artístico.

Aside from CGI sequences, there's nothing compelling here.

while it touts its technological influence, Tron is actually more instructive a model for the special effects extravaganzas that continue to litter the multiplex.
