When I went to see this film, I honestly did not know what to expect. The trailers made it look pretty cool but I haven't seen the original and live-action Disney pictures don't exactly have a stellar reputation. In short, my expectations were greatly exceeded.
Tron Legacy is a visual extravaganza whose special effects surpass Avatar's. Yes, I said that. Unlike the wave of mediocre CGI oriented films Hollywood has been producing throughout the years, it is evident that this film has spent a lot of time (and money) to make a vivid, detailed virtual reality. Also, the action scenes were split up with subtle shots of this virtual world allowing the viewer to get the most captivating visual experience.
Unfortunately, this film does have a few flaws. Aside from Jeff Bridges, the rest of the acting was not the greatest. In addition, the story was a little incoherent at times making it difficult for the viewer to follow.
Despite these minor flaws, Tron Legacy is a very enjoyable film and a must-see in theaters. Don't expect a film with an intricate plot and strong character development. Instead accept the film for what it is: a visually stunning action flick, and a damn good one.
