Tron: Legacy (2010)


Sequel to the 1982 Disney movie Tron; this time it takes place in the present day (or so it would seem) when Kevin Flynn’s son, Sam Flynn, becomes a renegade youth. After receiving a page from his father, Sam returns to Flynn’s arcade only to be accidentally sucked into Tron. Upon arriving in the game, he is met by digital soldiers who forced him to compete against other programs. However, it isn’t until later that we find out that Tron has been taken over by Kevin’s digital copy of himself… named Clu. Now, Kevin, Sam and an ISO named Quorra must stop Clu before he invades the real world and turns it into is dystopian vision. Though many people found this movie to be lacking in plot, I found it to be rich in plot and visuals. It’s a sci-fi movie from Disney and if you expected more than what is given… that’s your own fault. The soundtrack was very heavy on 80s and everything felt retro to me. Though it did remind me to watch the original Tron again. The only downside to this movie is that the dates seemed to be chronologically confused.

Side note: Jeff Bridges is still The Dude in this movie.
