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.

Dated effects, of course, but still nerdy fun after all these years.

One of those rare movies that manages to be silly and cool and important all at once.

A dazzling movie from Walt Disney in which computers have been used to make themselves romantic and glamorous. Here's a technological sound-and-light show that is sensational and brainy, stylish, and fun.

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.

Anyone nostalgic for monochrome computer screens, BASIC or '80s video games should definitely check this out again.

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

It does have one or two boring stretches, but the computer world it envisions is fantastic.

Visually, this film is state of the art, à la 1982, and Jeff Bridges turns in some of his better work.

This movie is great. By the way, what kind of mushroom was that again?

A superb 20th Anniversary DVD proves that Tron wasn't just groundbreaking; it's also great fun.

The special effects are dated, but at the time they were awesome.

Tron's images intoxicate; this computer world, depicted in the vocabulary of computer graphics that are highly contemporary, is a deserved dog-ear in the history of cinema.

Tron looks almost as startling as it did when I was much shorter, largely because the designs by Moebius and Syd Mead complemented the austere style of early CGI.

Despite my reservations about the film's story line, I'm sure I'll be watching it a few more times before either the disc or I wear out.
