Tron Legacy Movie Review
December 22, 2010
Since I missed watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in Ultra 7 movie house, I had to make sure that I wouldn’t miss Tron: Legacy this time around. On its 1st week, I finally watched it! I’m a huge fan of the stars in the movie: Olivia Wilde & Jeff Bridges. So I was pretty sure that I wouldn’t be disappointed in any way.
I was right! I loved it! Hard core Tron fans might not share the same sentiments but to each his own right? I haven’t watched the original Tron movie.
In this modern world with all those technology advances, I believe they delivered the movie with great visual effects & awesome sound editing. Not to mention, just how good looking the stars portraying the movie characters are. It was total eye candy festival all throughout the movie. I never got bored even though it was already late at night.
Tron: Legacy is a sequel to the 1982 film. The movie revolves around Sam Flynn who is the son of Tron creator, Kevin Flynn. It started with him as a child and Kevin showing him some toys that illustrated his vision. Sam never thought that it would be the last time he would see his father. As his father disappeared, the company, ENCOM International, which he was CEO of was eventually led by his business partner, Edward Dillinger.
The story unfolds with Sam constantly being haunted by his father’s disappearance, then eventually ending up in the Grid, then finally reuniting with his dad again, trying to escape the grid to go back into the real world, trying to get back his life with his dad and finally, taking ownership of Kevin’s ENCOM International.
The movie trailer below gives you an idea of what to expect. I have heard mixed reviews but in my opinion, it was a great movie!
What I appreciate most with the movie Tron: Legacy was how it touched on the love of a father and child, the loyalty of a program to its creator and lastly, care & compassion between friends.
I cried quite a few times in the duration of the movie. The time when Kevin Flynn and Sam Flynn first saw each other after almost 20 years. It was just too touching, you can see genuine love from both parties. The other instance where I cried was when Quorra (Olivia Wilde’s character) almost died, I didn’t know that she would be revived hahaha! Lastly, when Kevin sacrificed himself for his son. Heartbreaking indeed.
I believe there’ll be a another sequel to Tron but I guess they are weighing things to see if Tron: Legacy earns enough to make one. I hope the movie succeeds, as I will surely watch the next sequel. I still wanna know about the status of Tron. It’s a mystery still.
My rating for Tron: Legacy: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
