Interesting Review.

I found it interesting that one Character of the movie is named “Zuse”. Cool allusion. (Maybe, it’s also an allusion to the article “Calculating Space” by Konrad Zuse which coined the theory that our reality is an automata created “Virtual Reality”. I actually wanted to post a review of this paper in the Forum today, but I will include a passage about the possible allusion in my review.)

As long as they make no more games like they did, I can watch the movies.

If you see this in non-3d, it quickly becomes 6 of 10. With 3d, maybe 6 and a 1/2 out of 10. Its not the first cpr review I’ve disagreed with though.

It might have been 10 of 10 if it were non-stop daft punk and non-stop gaming action in high def 3d. As it stands, parts of the movie play like an asynchonous music video. The dialogue in many places is sort of forced, or doesn’t flow between scenes. Many concepts and settings aren’t given much explanation. Scenes, concepts and settings that would have been neat to see more of are only merely brushed on. Just my thoughts on the matter.

they could have expounded a little more on what happened to Tron, he seemed kind of marginalized

I think the original one is much better, yeas it has no CGI but at least it has a character development. Damn Hollywood!

The mocap lip sync was off on the 3D flynn. The storyline and acting could of used more depth too, but it was worth watching..

I think the choice of actors and the refinement do to production costs are the hold backs IMO..Like the son was that cheesy actor from Operation Takedown and the ISO is the girl from House..

to add to above^

Which both came off generic..

I agree with the 7/10 rating. Overall, the film turned out much better than I expected. There could have been more depth to some of the characters, but in comparison to most movies of 2010, there was plenty of depth. Good movie. Good enough for me to purchase the Tron: Legacy dvd when it’s released. Great review too.

I fully disagree with the rating. Yes, the music was great, but the review claims “The storyline probably could be better,” - what an understatement. I would have been fine with an average off-the-shell plot but “Tron:Legacy” didn’t even manage that. The storytelling technique was abysmal, not even one character was even slightly interesting. Even if the Grid had crashed and everyone died, I wouldn’t have cared a bit. The plot twists were blatant obvious and the characters had as much personality as a electron microscope image of a pure NaCl crystal. If you ask me, don’t waste your time and money on this ghouly reanimation of a true classic film.

I saw this movie in 3D the other night, an immediately recognized the themes as Cyberpunk which, naturally, immediately peaked my interest in the film.

Roboto, wasn’t the movie shot partly in 2D and partly in 3D? I saw it at IMAX and there was both.

Fake Cyberpunk trash!

The original is much better - It was a gross oversight of Disney to overlook it as an outdated embarrassment, to be plucked from the video-store shelves… Does anyone else realize that a great deal of the original’s art direction was executed by none other than Moebius? The 70’s graphic novelist who pioneered the cyberpunk aesthetic on the pages of magazines like Metal Hurlant.

Although both versions of Tron offer a misguided, simplified, and confused look at the overarching themes of Cyberpunk - The original can be looked to for some truly outstanding and creative visuals, from a true master of the genre. I’l take that any day over the
CGI-ed mundanity of Legacy.

Yeah, well,
I pretty much second all the destructive criticism.
However, I wonder that nobody complained about the one core trait Tron ever had: visuals.
In the 1982 film they were groundbreaking - not only in terms of technical innovation, but stylistically groundbreaking and up to this day, unmatched.
Tron Legacy design = cliche.

Also, this site is awesome.

Tron: Legacy felt like an exercise in special effects… except the effects were pretty poor. The CGI was average, which is a problem since the film relies so heavily on it. CGI Flynn looks like a CGI Flynn. The suits with the neon lights in them look like suits with neon lights in them. I like the atmosphere that the movie creates, but the quality of the visuals doesn’t allow it to truly come alive.

The original was notable for its dramatically different visual style, and despite its age, I think it still works really well. But more importantly, it had a compelling story and characters that you actually cared about. That’s the biggest problem with this movie. The story sucks. It feels like any other mainstream action flick.

Watching it was a chore. I was surprised by how boring and average it was. “Mundane” is indeed a good way to describe Tron: Legacy.

I don’t know why people liked the original better, the “story” was pretty simple and there was no feel of a real world, I mean, it was all just empty spaces, and the characters were just meh.
Legacy is good, great visuals (of course, is new), and the characters are good.

The Dude throws out a couple of Lebowski-isms with, “End of line, man,” and, “You’re messing with my Zen thing, man.” Every other thing he says in Legacy ends in “Man, man.” Flynn, Sr’s. apartment looks a lot like astronaut Dave Bowman’s alien cage from 2001: A Space Odyssey. INMHO the soundtrack is too overpowering and not up to par with the Wendy Carlos original. Though it is okay. One plus is the de-rez process. In the original deresoultion was a fade away. In Legacy someone getting deRez-ed breaks into tiny icecubes, or splashes. Good show. That Wilde actress has a really good hairstyle.
