I've been waiting 28 years for that.... (by DigitalWitch)
And it was worth it.I was 9 years old when I saw TRON in a dingy cinema in Fareham, I was hooked then, and I always dreamed they would make a sequel.I was seriously worried though, I mean, Escape from New York was another of my favourite movies and I got all excited about the sequel to that... and left the cinema mortified...Not this time.This was like an old friend coming home.There are a lot of comments about this movie having a poor story, personally, I disagree. It was a father and son story, any more on top of the other sub plots going on would have been too much.It's a hell of an <more>
experience for the sences... when those Recognizers flew overhead the cinema shook... immersive, entertaining... everything a good movie should be.Roll on Number 3.
There's a fairly coherent storyline here that would appeal across the spectrum, striking a fair balance between drama and action, although action junkies would have preferred for set action sequences given the investment in souping up and introducing a number of vehicles other than the light cycle.Certain scenes stood out either as homage or influenced pieces, and perhaps you may disagree with me, but the nightclub scene with Gem the Siren Beau Garrett bringing our new protagonist Sam Flynn Garrett Hedlund , the son of Kevin Flynn Jeff Bridges returns to once again play two roles, <more>
that of Kevin Flynn the founder of Encom and his digital creation / avatar Clu to meet Castor played by Michael Sheen with flamboyant spunk an information broker in the undergrounds of the digital Grid world, seems to have contained a whiff out of The Matrix Revolutions, with Persephone and Merovingian. But of course the Wachowskis didn't have Daft Punk to turn the tables, and parallels between the Matrix and the Grid cannot be more prominent given entities within are programs, with the ones gone rogue instilled with a desire to cross over to the real world.Then there's something unmistakably Star Wars about it too, with the designs of attack space crafts zipping through the night sky, and clearly one of the many gorgeous costumes here can't seem to hold a candle to what looked like an awesome robe, simple as it is, but striking nonetheless. Or how about something which reminds one of Gotham City's caped crusader, with the Tumbler inspired getaway vehicle with large inflatable tyres played out in a scene right out of Tim Burton's first Batman movie with the long road back to the secret hideout within which to seek out answers to questions left silent en route.So I may be stretching it, but there will be certain degrees of familiarity you'll find in some moments of the story, but I assure you the crux of it is a film that has deeper pathos, dealing with man's relentless pursuit for perfection and utopia, and the desire to play god if given a chance. Creations made in the image of is quite pronounced in a scene that stood out almost like Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, although here it's interpreted in the digital realm. Humans aren't perfect, so our creations in all likelihood will inherit some of our flaws, no matter if they happen to be digital and following certain fixed patterns and constructs. It's what being human is all about with our imperfection. The dramatic elements here between Father and Son is the film's strength to provide that emotional anchor and attachment making this a digital affair with plenty of soul, and the chemistry shared between Jeff Bridges and Garrett Hedlund make them quite the father and son pair up, with shades of how revered the former is within his own created realm, and the tremendous power that he still holds even if in exile.Olivia Wilde provides for the token fashionista who is ever ready to flex her battle prowess with skills in various weapons - a lethal combination of The Matrix's Trinity equipped with Star Wars blades - and vehicles, whose background is given a superficial twist which seeks to expand the TRON universe a little bit more with miracle phenomenon being a natural occurrence once a perfect equilibrium is achieved. Fans will get to learn and understand this expanded universe a lot more as explanations get dished out in due course, even one that deals with the time in between the first and second films, of Kevin Flynn's obsession with his latest playground that his creation ultimately took over, turning it into an arena with its own brand of gladiatorial fights for entertainment. But there's enough material introduced without being overwhelming for the new Grid entrant, and opens up a lot more avenues for future storytellers.Even for those days, I wasn't one of those who got instantly impressed by the effects of the time, but then again that's what made TRON stand out based on its uniqueness in look. It was way ahead with combining live action with computer generated graphics, and in the same fashion, the filmmakers here had done an admirable job prepping this film up for 3D. 3D may be the latest Hollywood fad that got people jumping onto its bandwagon, but just as how computer graphics has to be inherent in the first TRON movie, the updates of the franchise has to keep up with the times, and in true reel mimicking real life, The Grid pops up in more than 2 dimensions, starting with the light cycle wars that include an additional dimension to consider, which makes for some thrilling action, both on or under the ground and in the air, rather than just becoming a mere special effect.But I had to admit my personal hook line and sinker to watch this film, is the soundtrack by Daft Punk. It stands out most definitely throughout the film, and provided additional lift. It's a character in itself without which the film wouldn't be half as exciting or watchable, with rousing themes to stoke your expectations with its pomp. Their musical contribution and its importance cannot be more than overstated, and is a critical ingredient to why I had enjoyed this film so much to put it as a late consideration into one of the best this year has to offer.
A sequel, that's on par with the original and even better.Stunning! (by drakula2005)
I must begin with the explanation of why i'm giving the full note to the movie-i wasn't the biggest fan of the original Tron 1982 when i saw it, and even though i didn't expect much from the sequel, i was eager to see it, because i am a fan, a huge admirer of Olivia Wilde's and because the timeframe reminded me of another movie, i wasn't so keen to see, last year.A movie, which then turned out to be one of the fullest movies of the year-full of both heart and soul.I even saw it the same day-on the 19-th last year.And i said to myself, there were too many things alike, <more>
such as the fact i saw Legacy's trailer at the teather, just before the beginning of Avatar-too many things to throw away such an opportunity.So today i went, and i was totally blown away by, by almost everything.I guess that's what happens when you see a movie you didn't expect to be something special, but that wasn't the case.The experience itself was special-and not in terms in time and date and likeness but in terms of quality.The costumes, the effects, the music, the tone of the movie were special.The actors were the thing i actually wanted to be a little better.I always felt strange, seeing a Jeff Bridges movie-he clearly can act and is a great actor, but i don't like his style very much.I quite expected he would be the show-stealing actor, but i was wrong.It was the beautiful and stunning Olivia Wilde.I am a fan of hers and i always knew she is a great actress with huge potential, but was sad, so to say, by the fact she was great in TV-shows mostly-in House or the O.C. she's great, and now she put that passion in a big project so her talent can be visible for audiences around the world.She has great looks and is a skillfull actress.Only by the look of her eyes i felt what she feels, and that's very important.The bond, the connection with the people, ordinary people in the audience like me was so real and was what left us wanting for more even from other movies.She did that, a thing only a handful of people can do.That's what makes her such important for the movie.I know it sounds cliché but she is really the only woman for this role.No one else could've done it better.Garrett Hedlund, or Sam, was also interesting to see-a fact, i didn't see from the trailers-he has potential and he showed that in the movie.And i forgot to check who played Zuse, but i'm sure it was Michael Sheen, because only he is so crazy and unique in his style.He brought brilliancy and sheer entertainment in his role, it was something great to see.When we talk about the people behind the movie, we must pay a huge credit of the rookie director Joseph Kosinski.Disney made another brilliant gambling move, that's paying off.The man knows what he's doing and the studio was aware of that fact.I'm paying a huge debt to him for the effects as well, because he works with computer generated imagery, also a specialty of his.It will be an interesting thing, to follow his upcoming career moves and projects-he'll become a big face, i'm sure of that.All in all production and effects were great, some fresh faces were introduced and some-rediscovered in this one-hell-of-a-ride sequel, which will stand in mind for a long time to come.Avatar and Tron formed a Christmas movie-going tradition, that one only could hope continues the next year and the one afterwards a little bit like Saw & PA's Halloween traditions .We, moviegoers, can only hope for things to continue in this direction, because you've brought warmth to this moviegoer's heart during winter-time.I hope people like Joseph Kosinski and Garrett Hedlund continue develop, Jeff Bridges to keep making strange, but otherwise captivating roles, and last but not least, Olivia Wilde to progress, because, she's not just another beautiful face, but a mesmerizing actress as well, who can heaten up a fan's heart and a woman with such skills, suitable for both the big screen and TV-such diversity is rare to see these days.She's something special.I know i'm not objective, but this must and is visible for many people i know and is now visible for everyone.So, all the best for her, and all the cast and crew behind the movie.Because you made one hell of a movie.The new Christmas movie-going tradition is here.And cheers for it.Cheers for "Tron : Legacy"My grade:A deserved 10/10
A Cyber-Epic Film With an Amazing Rendering of the Digital World (by aaronjbong)
A science fiction movie made by Disney seems interesting enough especially when it's live-action and targeted for kids Disney targets its movies for kids, right? . And there it is, "Tron: Legacy", a science fiction movie, Disney science fiction movie, live-action and targeted for kids. And yet, 3D."Tron: Legacy" is actually a sequel to the 1982 revolutionary film, "Tron" and marks the directorial debut of Joseph Kosinski. "Legacy" sets Kevin's son, Sam Flynn, 27 years in age as the main character who gets a message from Kevin or so it is from <more>
the world of Tron. He then goes to Flynn's arcade, enters some sort of mysterious room and plays with a computer which digitized him and entered him to the world of Tron. Then, he fights with other programs trying to find his father, Kevin Flynn who disappeared years ago. On the way, he meets Quorra, some cool machines and of course, Clu Kevin's program .I watched "Legacy" and found it to be really good. The rendering of the world of Tron was really breathtaking and got me in awe. All of the world is definitely going to make "Tron: Legacy" one hell of a blockbuster film and surely, one of the best films on the year 2010.The acting had no problem. Jeff Bridges, after all those years since the first film is still fresh as ever. Garrett Hedlund was also not a problem in the film. Olivia Wilde as Quorra was stunning. The acting was definitely perfect. Everything.The 3D effects. This was one funny thing. In the beginning of the film, it was noted that some parts of the film were in 2D and some were in 3D and you were asked to not take your 3D glasses off. I did broke the rule several times and saw something unique. Parts that were set in the real world, not in the world of Tron were displayed in 2D and parts that were set in the world of Tron were displayed in 3D. Anyways, the 3D worked pretty well. The Lightcycles in the film and all the things in the world of Tron, displayed in 3D were awesome.The score of the film was also exciting. The soundtrack was also great as it reached number 10 on the Billboard 200. It was very awesome and thrilling with all the bass and everything. Overall, "Tron: Legacy" is worth to watch. 3D works pretty fine in watching this film. Young kids would not really like this but maybe aged 8 and above would do. I believe this is the best film for December 2010 and is a good way to end blockbuster movies of 2010. Great job, Kosinski. Prince AJB's Score: 85%Thank you for reading my review on "Tron: Legacy" and hope it's useful.
Tron Legacy: Return of the Digital Sci-Fi Fantasy (by shakezuulla)
As greed was the true enemy of the original film, vanity is the new enemy within Tron Legacy. The sequel brings us the classic tale of Creator Vs. Creation Paradise Lost, Frankenstein, Jurassic Park etc In a new, updated, would be utopia of a digital world, the creator, Kevin Flynn, becomes trapped within his own obsession when trying to chase after perfection...A perfection that he already has but does not realize until it's too late.The Creation, Clu, is scorned, tries to win his creators approval by taking his vision of a "perfect" world to our real world by proving that he <more>
is worth more than just a puppet to do Flynn's bidding.Tron Legacy is very thought provoking and ultimately keeps the film within the same construct as the original. It would have been very easy for them to have amped up action sequences to 110 but instead we have a great balance of a philosophical story along with pleasing visuals. It is very hard to find a Sci-Fi flick today that allows the audience to actually take in the visuals without 65 different things happening in the same scene or the camera shaking all over the place. Tron Legacy allows the viewer to see the high speed Light Cycle races as well as experience the identity disc duels from a perspective that captures the action but does not shove it in your face as quick as possible.Most important of all, Tron Legacy is not striving to be bigger, better, or louder than the original. If anything, it seems it strives to be it's equal in a modern age. Although it is significantly different visually, it still maintains that Tron vibe. There is still a lot of mystery to the digital world and how everything works. Not every detail is spelled out for you and thankfully so. It is still up to the viewer to leave a few things up the their imagination. Overall, the movie embodies the right amount of Tron nostalgia while bringing you a sequel that moves the story forward. The new characters are well establish and do a great job at taking us through the movie. The visual speaks for themselves and the story is definitely not shallow. The movie earns the right to be called Tron Legacy.Return to the Digital Sci-Fi Fantasy...See this movie.End Of Line.
'TRON: LEGACY': Four and a Half Stars Out of Five Sequel to the 1982 cult classic Disney film 'TRON', one of the original forays into CGI film-making at least the most expansive at that time . The original film is a huge throwback to my childhood; it was released when I was 6 and it, and even more so the arcade game based on it, had a huge impact on popular culture at that time. The film was initially only moderately successful at the box office grossing just $33 million on a $17 million budget, domestically but it quickly grew in popularity. DVD copies of the film are <more>
now rare and in strong demand, the cheapest used copy on Amazon is going for $65 and the film is unavailable for rent At least on Netflix. I got my copy 5 years ago for $15 .Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner both reprise their roles from the original film but no Cindy Morgan to many fans' disappointment . The film was written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz two veteran writers of 'LOST' along with first time writers Brian Klugman an experienced actor and Lee Sternthal. It's directed by first time director Joseph Kosinski , who I've read oddly wasn't a fan of the original film he's also directing the remake to another Disney sci-fi cult classic of the same era, 'THE BLACK HOLE' . The writer and director of the original film, Steven Lisberger, is a producer of this film as well as makes a cameo appearance.Bridges once again plays genius video game developer Kevin Flynn with the help of CGI effects to make him look twenty years younger . As the film opens he's now running ENCOM and has a young son named Sam. He's further exploring the inner digital world of the gaming system and telling Sam of all his adventures. Suddenly he goes missing in the year 1989. The movie flashes forward twenty years and now Sam played by Garrett Hedlund is the rebellious majority stockholder of his father's company and wants nothing to do with it, except to keep the current greedy CEO's from tarnishing his dad's legacy. One day after his father's partner Alan Boxleitner receives a mysterious page, coming from Kevin's old arcade, Sam goes investigating. He finds a hidden room in the arcade and is sucked into the same digital game world his father has been trapped in for twenty years. The world is filled with the same deadly vehicles and gladiator games as that of the first film but this time far more advanced. Sam finds his father and teams up with him, as well as his young friend played by the stunning Olivia Wilde . The three attempt to defeat the mad computer program controlling the digital world, Clu also played by Bridges , and return the Flyns to the real world.The film, like the first, is full of revolutionary state of the art visual effects. It's also one of only a handful of films that's been filmed in actual 3D and using more advanced 3D equipment than the granddaddy of all 3D films' 'AVATAR' although the 3D is not quite as impressive, it's also only used while in the digital world . The story is full of religious analogies and the parable of man playing God but it's the weakest part of the film. It's the action and visual effects that really make the film worthwhile. The acting isn't anything special with the exceptions of the always impressive Bridges although this is hardly his most impressive work and Michael Sheen in a scene stealing role. The music by techno band 'Daft Punk' who also have a cameo in the film is impressive and is one of the most memorable and fitting movie scores of the year. Kosinski's direction is very promising and extremely impressive for a first film, I don't know where Disney found this guy but he was definitely the right man for the job! The action is exciting and surprisingly violent how this got away with a PG rating and something like 'SPIDER-MAN' gets slapped with a PG-13 I'll never understand . Like I said the story isn't that impressive or involving and although it does try to tug at the emotions in the father / son tale it's not really that effective but still the movie is a visual action roller coaster ride and in the end none of that other stuff really matters. It's a sci-fi classic in the tradition of it's 80's predecessor and all those like it. I personally think it's an even greater film than the original and I'm willing to bet it will be a far more successful one as well, despite it's $200 million budget.Watch our review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v i-mJitUpqE8
If 'The Beatles' are to "Avatar", then 'Pink Floyd' is to "Tron: Legacy"....take that how you will. (by blackmambamark)
When is the last time you saw a Disney movie in December? Hard to think isn't it. Normally around this time, each studio breaks out their big guns just in time for Oscar season. But Disney has refrained from doing so for quiet some time........why? And an even bigger 'Why' is, why make this sequel now? Why not 5...10...or even 15 years ago? Many questions surround Disney choices as of late, like spending over $250 million to make an animated feature with "Tangled".......well, if this outcome is anything like that, than we are surely in for a treat.Okay, regardless of <more>
what you may hear or read about this film in the coming weeks, i want you to totally ignore it. Because going into this movie, i read numerous negative reviews, mainly circulating around problems with the script and the amount of depth. But i can tell you this right now......this movie is without a shadow of a doubt, the best 3-D movie i have ever seen. Wait a minute, does that count "Avatar"?.....you bet your ass it does.Don't get me wrong, i love me some "Avatar". I once said that it was a visual revolution. Well, it seems that it's wake has proceeded it. The best comparison i can give is this......If The Beatles are to Avatar, then Pink Floyd is to Tron. Take that how you will.Now, what makes this film oh so great? Well, a number of things. First is the amazing visual effects. I'm sure you know what your in store for by just watching the previews, but let me assure you, that is just a small appetizer compared to the feast that awaits you. Within the first 30 minutes of this film, i was literally wiping the drool from my jaw.....and the movie did nothing but get crazier and crazier with it's effects.Second, is the combination of the set decoration and the musical score, which combined, are hands down the best portion of the movie. Not since "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones" have i seen a musical score fit the set detail quiet like this. Wait a tick, did i just make another comparison to "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones"? Once again, you bet your ass i did. This soundtrack is so good, it will convince you to go out and buy it, regardless if there are no words.....yes, it is that good. DaftPunk, i urge you to tackle more projects like this....please, i bet of you.Now, the story does not match the epic quality as everything else......however, the story is good enough to keep your interest and keep you entertained. In fact, i actually liked the story. Sure it had it's moments where it would slow down from it's vigorous pace.....but thats fine, it doesn't matter. The story is fun, and somewhat engaging, and you piece that together with everything else, and you don't even care if it has minor flaws.Bottom Line, i will say it once again, just so it can be tattoo'd into your brain. This is easily the best 3-D movie i have ever seen. You don't need to see the first one a thousand times or even once to understand it, and yet it still fits in nicely with the original. I applaud Disney for giving the Director the freedom to make this movie how he saw fit. I don't know who is it charge as of late, but they are making some very bold steps.....bold, and pioneering.
I have never seen the original 'Tron', nor do I really know much about it really. I've only heard the movie referenced on occasion like that one episode of The Simpsons where Homer's trapped in the Third Dimension and he asks if anybody saw the movie 'Tron', and everyone says "No." . The previews for 'Tron: Legacy' looked visually stunning, and I'm happy to report it does not disappoint in that regard. Everything seen inside "The Grid" is a wonder to behold, a visual feast. But is this the only thing the film has going for it? <more>
Well...yes and no. As far as the characters/actors who portray them are concerned...Garrett Hedlund is good as Sam Flynn. Yes, he has to utter some clunky dialogue along the way and is a bit stiff at times, but he serves the role well enough. At times he reminded me of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker what with the pulling out of lightsabers...I mean discs, donning of cloaks, etc - though not half as bad as him.Jeff Bridges gives a solid performance as Sam's dad, Kevin Flynn. The only thing that detracts from his acting is his digitised clone, Clu. No matter how hard they have tried to create a youthful-looking Jeff Bridges using computer magic, he still looks like a "cartoon" as someone in the audience put it . While it's annoying, it would have at least been tolerable if it had been limited to just the scenes inside The Grid. However, the movie starts in the the real world with a "young" Kevin Flynn telling his son the story of Tron/The Grid, and you can plainly tell the drastic difference between a real and fake Jeff Bridges. It's so obvious, and very distracting. Olivia Wilde kicks butt and looks great doing it in her skintight catsuit with neon highlights and her asymmetrical wig as the warrior, Quorra. She seems to be having a lot more fun with this role than she does with that of Thirteen on 'House'. Quorra has a slight naivety about her in regards to some things, and displays a sense of childlike wonder on occasion especially the end , which gives her some depth. Wilde and Hedlund share some good scenes together, and her character at least gets *some* development - which is more than I can say for the albino-like "Siren", Gem Beau Garrett .Michael Sheen is memorable as Castor. While he does tend to "ham it up" a bit, it's nonetheless a delightful performance.Apart from the animation of Young Kevin Flynn, there are a couple of other 'minuses' of the film, like the dialogue which is oftentimes average and the fact that the film itself does seem to drag in spots/go on for a bit too long.However, the visuals *do* almost manage to make up for most of the film's faults almost . The movie looks stunning - after we get past the kinda boring beginning and are transported along with Sam inside The Grid. Light Cycles, Light Runners, all mode of "Light" transportation make for thrilling action/chase sequences. Then there's the "games", that mostly seem to involve throwing discs - which resemble Xena's round killing thing - at each other, causing those who are hit to "derez" ie. cease to exist . Another 'plus' for this film is its excellent score. It adds SO much to the movie.The film is entertaining enough, but probably not the non-stop action some people are expecting/hoping for. If you're looking to kill a couple hours watching something that's visually pleasing but, at the same time, may give you a headache/sore eyes thanks to the 3D , then 'Tron: Legacy' is worth checking out. Fans of the original may or may not like this movie, I'm not sure, but I know that for someone like myself - who's being introduced to the world of 'Tron' for the first time - it was quite something.
I saw a preview of this last night in London, we were told reviews were embargo'd until Sunday, so these are just my thoughts.First the 3D. Its only really on the Grid, not in the 'real world', so it works really well. 9/10.The effects were about what I expected, although tbh, anyone who has played Tron Evolution the new game out last month wont see anything new - in fact I thought the environments in the game were actually better. And I think some of the battles I've had online were more exciting than the Games in the movie. 6/10Storyline is about all the could have done, I <more>
wont reveal any of it, but its OK. However, no love story. More of a father / son bonding thing going on. Im not sure on the age rating of the movie, but come on, Olivia Wilde? I just wanted them to get it on with some cyber sex! Not even a kiss. 6/10Acting... again great, all characters were believable and everyone put in a good performance. I've got to give a big shout to Michael Sheen here, his Castor character literally stole the whole show. His performance, albeit relatively short, is the only reason Im going back to watch the film again! Brilliant. 10/10Clu...OK Jeff Bridges. His digitised character was the only disappointment in the movie. Don't get me wrong, sometimes it looked realistic, especially the middle third of the movie, but the rest of the time... it was worse than ja ja binks. 6/10I also think they could have done with explaining a bit of the story bridging the two movies. I finished the Tron Evolution game so I knew what it was all about, but many wont, and will be left without a Clu as to his motives. Excuse the pun.But overall, worth seeing, and especially worth seeing in 3D.
