Movie Review: Tron: Legacy (2010)

Rated: PG-13
Genre: Sci-Fi
Running Time: 125 min
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Cast: Garrett Hedlund, Jeff Bridges, Michael Sheen, Olivia Wilde

This is a sequel to the original film, ‘Tron’, that was released 28 years ago.

“Sam Flynn (Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade — a signal that could only come from his father– he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a cyber universe — a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.” – Walt Disney Pictures, IMDB.

Verdict: The legacy is not continued here. This is nothing but an eye candy for me. Absolutely lame plot and poor script. The visuals are the only thing worth mentioning. Same could have been said about ‘Avatar’.

Makes no sense to me: (SPOILER BEGINS HERE) Where did Sam learn how to fight like that? If he learnt martial arts, they should’ve mentioned it. What triggered Tron to suddenly have flashbacks and turn good again? Not to mention that he’s the title of this movie and yet he has a very small role in this sequel. And what the heck are ISOs? How could a system suddenly manifest a “new life form”? So where in the Grid did they come from? AND ALSO, how the hell did Quorra become human? I didn’t know the damn laser cannon could produce humans out of programs. (SPOILER ENDS HERE)

Spot them? Daft Punk made a cameo appearance as masked DJs in a club scene. The electronic and orchestral music in the film are all composed by the duo. Quite impressive if you asked me.

Rating: 2 / 5
