Tron Legacy Review

In 1989 (seven years after the first film), Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), an innovative software engineer and the CEO of ENCOM International, tells his seven-year-old son Sam (Owen Best) about a new "digital frontier" he has created called The Grid, a virtual domain existing inside his own private servers (hidden in a lab at his arcade). Kevin tells Sam of the two programs helping him, Tron and Clu; Tron keeps The Grid secure, while Clu is tasked with creating the perfect system. One night, Kevin departs for his office to continue working on the development of his creation, when he mysteriously vanishes.

Twenty years later, Sam (Garrett Hedlund) is haunted by Kevin's disappearance. After sabotaging ENCOM's operations in order to protect his father's legacy, Sam is visited by his father's friend and ENCOM executive Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner). Bradley had received a page originating from a supposedly disconnected phone line at Flynn's long-shuttered arcade, and he urges Sam to investigate it, convinced that doing so may lead to information regarding Kevin's whereabouts. While exploring the arcade, Sam discovers a concealed door leading to a computer laboratory in the basement. Attempting to discover what his father was doing by calling up the command logs and reissuing the last command entered, Sam unintentionally activates a digitizing laser which transports him to The Grid.


Personally i found this movie to be pretty awesome. It was indeed the last movie I saw with Yiota this year (literally :P) and it was 3d to that matter. The story itself if quite interesting and keeps your interest throughout the movie. There is no scene where you are saying to yourself, "bah this is boring lets get to the action already" The movie itself has a decent amount of action yet not too much. Amazing graphics, a very good 3d (on my opinion) when it existed and it was a good movie all around. Another fascinating fact that got me almost jumping of joy, was that the creators of the soundtrack of Tron and one of the best (if not THE best) of electronic music, Daft Punk were actually playing the dj's in the movie. They were awesome, especially at the (spoiler) scene in the bar where they begin beating the shit out of each other and they instantly change to a more fighting music. Well lets face it, we all would do the same. Now at the downside, I found it that it had some eye poking cliches. I mean some of em were just there, for all to see. Take those minor drawbacks and I find it a very good movie. A real must of this year which was not a very good year for movies. Especially if you love sci fi as much as I do you will definatelly love this movie


  1. Great!! I wanted to see the movie, but I had doubts about it....After you're review, I'm definetely going to....

  2. Nina don't watch it in 3D, doesn't worth it. Narnia was better 3D :P

    I have to agree though, it was very good. Didn't get bored as well and it was a big movie.

    The cliches oh my god! People needs to start doing something with their mind XD

  3. @Yiota i think its actually because of us, we have seen TOO many movies, read TOO many books, played TOO many games so practically everything is cliched:P

  4. I love your review! I thought the movie was really cool, awesome graphics and even awesome-er music lol.

  5. @Laura, exactly! daft punk ftw!

  6. I managed to see this movie today in 3D...
    I will describe it in one word : WOW!!!(Not sure if it is an actual word)
    The graphics were Amazing, the only flaw was CLUs face... I could tell it was 3D...
    The music was AWESOME!!! I really miss Daft Punk these days (I hope for a comeback after this movie...)
    The Scenario was really,really good... There was no boring point...
    The only thing that I didn't like was the duration of the film... I WANTED MORE!!!
    I don't know if you can still catch it in the cinemas but it is worth it, esp;ecially if you are a Sci-Fi FAN!!!
    P.S. The 3D effects are in the "GRID"... In the real world is 2D but who cares...

  7. omg what an amazing movie! i don't usually watch movies like that but it was awesome!!

    i loved the plot, the graphics, even though i didn't watch it in 3D.

    all the actors were great and i was so happy when i saw Quorra (Olivia Wilde) because she is one of my favorite actresses. I also liked Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) in this movie he was much better and cooler than Country Strong...

    the final scene when the father creats all that energy is amazing!!!

  8. ohhh i forgot something XD

    the costumes were so great! even the men looked good in them! Quorra (Olivia Wilde) was so pretty, she looked amazing in that costume...


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
