Film – Quick Thoughts: Tron: Legacy

Tron: Legacy
Tron: Legacy, directed by Joseph Kosinski
Written by: Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz
Starring: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5

I watched this on Blu-ray. It’s not a perfect film by any means, Garrett Hedlund being a bit bland beside Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde (who are both excellent) as he’s pretty much a generic hero in absent-father Kirk mode, Sam’s arc is much less interesting and more predictable than Flynn’s or Quorra’s, Encom’s CEO and the board in general are a cliché evil corporation and I’m not convinced Clu’s plan was a good as he or Flynn thought it was.

Those things aside though I really did enjoy it. The Tron style looks lovely with modern CGI and in HD, they really did a good job with it. They’ve built the setting up into a full-fledged sci-fi universe now, which possibly takes something away from the original version of the setting but really makes it an interesting place. They’ve updated everything nicely for modern audiences (the games and lightcycles), there are plenty of good action sequences and I liked the soundtrack.
