The sequel to the cult favorite TRON is finally made it’s way to the screens. Like all computer programs, it’s getting a makeover with an update on the visual and special effects. But can TRON: Legacy change the track record of the previous TRON’s box office collection and attracts both the old and new fans? Lets check it out.


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.
The first Tron, back in the eighties, brought something new to cinema. I wasn’t expecting the same feat this time, just more of the same interesting sci-fi they managed to create back then mixed with the enhanced visual capabilities of the studios today.

Jeff Bridges is great as the bearded, shaggy Jedi Master-programmer. Olivia Wilde takes a character that shouldn’t work and imbues her with curiosity and mischievous energy. Michael Sheen has the time of his life as the Merovingien crossed with David Bowie. Director Joseph Kosinski does his best with the visuals,Daft Punk come through with the exciting and angular soundtrack.
Tron Legacy is basically a retrograde of prominent events that occurred in the original film. It’s pretty to look at but without a good story, TRON Legacy ends up looking like a beautiful vase.Disney has to mash a lot of bugs before they even consider Tron-3.

Bottom Line : Not the Legacy I was hoping to see .. 🙁
