As nifty as this may seem, two-plus hours of this particularly at the reduced light offered by 3D projection robs it of interest, and the whole thing becomes a dull slog. But is it wrong to want more of these kinds of films? That digital world looks really cool, right? And I say that with no judgment. Everyone else may as well save themselves the money. But Dillinger's supercomputer Master Control Program foils Flynn's efforts and dictates and controls most of the computer systems.

Sam is saved by a program named Quorra who takes him to his father. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra Olivia Wilde , father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. The sad truth of the matter, however, is that what looks awesome in a two-minute trailer begins to wear on the eyes when presented long-form. I should note, though, that I can honestly say 3D added nothing to the experience, so if you want to be able to actually see in The Grid, save yourself the money and hop into a 2D seat. Maybe catch it on Blu-ray. Director: Joseph Kosinski Writers: Edward Kitsis screenplay , Adam Horowitz screenplay Stars: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. In 1989, computer genius Kevin Flynn tells his young son about his adventures in the cyber world of Tron.
I say that to say that I am reviewing Legacy solely for Legacy's sake, untainted by nostalgia or high expectations. Sam spends his time moping over his father's disappearance and pulling a prank on the board. Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 20 years. It is a sequel to the 1982 film Tron with Jeff Bridges reprising his roles as Kevin Flynn and Clu, while Bruce Boxleitner reprises his roles as Alan Bradley and Tron. ! At its best, the Daft Punk score and stylized imagery early in the film, before it wears you down do provide a unique and imaginative experience. Garret Hedlund and Oliva Wilde are perfectly fine in their frankly bland roles, and Jeff Bridges squeezes what depth he can into his dual characters actual Kevin Flynn and his twenty-years-younger digital duplicate, thanks to some unnerving but nifty visual trickery.
Sam wonders why is that so important, Alan tells him because the number's been disconnected for 20 years. Apparently not, at least for me. After being mistaken for a program, he finds himself subjected to all sorts of contests but when they discover he is not a program but a user. Tron: Legacy is a 2010 American science fiction film directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Steven Lisberger. Will the name Sam Flynn have the same kind of longevity? And so, bereft of a childhood that contained Tron, I went into the sequel with naught but a Wikipedia plot breakdown which was, to be honest, frustratingly informative to fill in what turned out to be largely irrelevant narrative gaps. 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. There are some neat sequences, of course: the initial lightcycle battle, a digital dogfight later on, etc.
Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Quorra, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. To give more plot details would be unfair and pointless. One day, Alan Bradley, his father's best friend tells Sam that he got a page from the phone at his father's office at his arcade. The history of cinema is full of this kind of shallow but aloofly entertaining distraction. Sam goes there and finds his father's work station and after entering a few codes finds himself in the Grid. Suffice to say that once within the digital realm, it becomes action beat after action beat wherein our young hero rescues dad and his requisite romantic interest until the film ends.
The film is far from the unwatchable dreck of, say, The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
