  average movie , but effects give ratings higher

| | See all GreenDayMarvelFan's reviews (233)

as most reviewers on here are talking about the effects , my reviewer is based on the movies itself . granted tron was best of its time in effects ways but the movie was average not a classic movie, classic in effects yes. Tron legacy is not best of its time in this decade dont listen to other reviews on this . as the young jeff bridges has been done before in other movies such the curious case of B.button and avatar is on power with it and even the matrix is on power with it and that was out in 1999 . you can say how great the effects are on both movies for each on its on era but the movies are nothing great , 5 star movies become classics in years to come . tron became a classic due to its effects not for story telling or gripping scenes , tron legacy will not become a classic in either story telling nor effects cause the effects are on power with most films now.

  'WHAT IF ?'

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (895)

20 years ago 'sam's' father 'game designer' 'flynn' fails to return home, the years have passed without a word, until a strange message is sent from 'flynn's' old office.
'sam' goes to investigate haven been given the key by his grandfather to the now unused premises.
'sam' finds his way into 'flynn's' office, and starts to use the equipment within, suddenly he is pulled into a strange digital world, and finds he has to do battle with the games 'characters'
just as the odds become overwhelming a girl, 'quorra' comes to the rescue.
'sam' is about to learn the truth behind his fathers dissapearance years before, now 'sam' has to fight the evil within the game in an effort to take both himself and his father home.
well, the film compared to the 1982 original also in the package available just shows how far 'special effects' / cgi' has improved allmost, beyond belief.
the film deserves '5' stars for the spectacle that is 'tron' legacy'
with both films on board it's truly a must own for sci-fi fans.
let's hope that we don't in the not to distant future allow computers to control us as we believe at this time that we control them......'what if ? '

  TRON RE-EVALUATED

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

Sometimes movies need to be re-watched to be fully enjoyed as to be honest I had a choice to see Tron Legacy at the cinema in 3D or go and see JLS at Sheffield with my wife and Daughter,
I chose Tron Legacy!
But at the time after watching that movie in 3D I came away very disappointed, as I came away with the impression of style over substance.
Fast forward four month and now both the original film and the long awaited sequel gets released on Blue Ray and it gave me time to catch up on how it all started with the original Tron movie.

Tron 1982.
When this came out it was groundbreaking with its jaw dropping computer generated effects, but the film did not break box-office records as expected.
It was marketed at the kids market and failed to capture the intended audience.
This was probably due to the movie being far ahead of its time, but over the years the film grew a massive cult following and finally was known as a cult classic.
Not seeing the film since its 1982 release what stands out is although the effects have dated, but how close the then fantasy world has started to become a reality.
The plot touches on many aspects that have now become normal day to day living and although plot wise its a jumble of ideas the film still has the retro sense of wonder fully intact.
Also the re-mastered Blue Ray version makes the visuals crisper than ever and the film has never looked so good.
****
Tron Legacy 2010
As mentioned earlier I was less that impressed by the movie at the cinema, but at home watching it in my own time and on Blue Ray the film can be fully appreciated.
As now I could watch the first film and now this back to back in a kind of one night "Tronathon"
What interested me was that the film does not loose any of the wow factor for not being in 3D.
The updated world of Tron is a visual treat with the deep blacks and the light blue neon. But what the fans were waiting for was the action and the advancement in technology since the first film truly stands out. The light cycle chase is jaw dropping as they speed around the smooth circuit leaving a dazzling light trail behind them using the most of the multi-level environment.
Also the disc fights in a Perspex arena is awesome as the killer discs ricochet of the walls until it makes contact with the other competitor and they shatter into millions of glass like pieces.
Jeff Bridges also is great as he reprises his role, but also the motion capture of the young Jeff Bridges is uncanny and although at times you can tell it's not real due to having a dead eyed look, how it interacts is astonishing.
To add to the spectacle of it all is Daf Punks music that compliments the films brooding visuals with a music score that sound similar to Hans Zimmer's score for The Dark Knight, but works perfectly.
But as we all know a film a film cannot rely on visuals alone it needs a good story.
This is a slight stumbling block for the film, as although the film has many idea's the actual plot only comes to light in the final quarter and it's the usual world domination plan.
Also the pace of the film is a bit off balance as most of the action happens in the first half of the movie leaving the movie to drag until the final quarter showdown.
But faults aside you cannot deny the film is a truly jaw dropping experience leaving the door wide open for more sequels to follow.
****
The films both have good extras, and although I have given both films four stars this package gets an overal five stars because of value for excellent money.

  Simply breathtaking

Split Into two parts
Tron first. The transfer of the normal scenes is superb. The grid scenes are excellent but short of re-doing all the special effects there is still that ever presents colour blurr for the blue or red flashings on the characters uniforms etc. Still excellent quality.

Legacy now. Didn't see it at the cinema so this was first viewing for me. First fifteen minutes of plot building is very good. Excellent transfer and sound quality. Sets it up nicely for the rest of the film in the grid. I have to say the first time I saw the new recogniser ( big flying Baddy thing.) I was blown away. I thought avatar would be hard to beat but torn legacy leaves it for dust. The light cycle scenes are absolutely incredible. The Baddy clu ( cgi of bridges ) is so well done it has to be seen to be believed. The re designed baddies and tron himself are amazing.

I have to say this is now my benchmark blu ray and I think it will take some beating.

  Best Sci-fi movie of 2010 with amazing visuals & storyline

| | See all WingCommander's reviews (48)

If you liked the cheesy original Tron then be enthrolled by the jaw dropping sequel Tron legacy (cinematic 3D version was a must see) with a better story and eye poppin special effects, in my opinion better than Inception. I found myself watching this movie again and again on bluray compared to Avatar the best scifi movie of 2009 which I watched once after seeing it in 3D at the cinema.

A film for the gamers & matrix fans who like a movie that is just entertaining without being to preachy
