Movie Review: Tron: Legacy

“Tron: Legacy” is a fun movie dedicated to people that love technology and gadgets. It is a "nerd" movie sequel of the original "Tron" made in 1982. And if you liked Ke$ha's cracked out neon glowstick look at the MTV EMA then you will enjoy the character's wardrobe.

The story of “Tron: Legacy” doesn’t require you see the original film to understand the sequel. The plot is nothing out of the ordinary. It is what you would expect in a sci-fi movie involving artificial intelligence and computers with big holes in some parts that you will just have to accept that “it just works”. However, “Tron: Legacy” proves that Disney could cater to an older crowd apart from making kiddy films such as "High School Musical" and "Hannah Montana".

Other than the story, the visuals were extremely stimulating especially in 3D (do see this movie in 3D, it’s worth the extra $3) and the electronic music by Daft Punk made you feel pumped and like you are part of the movie. Olivia Wilde, Jeff Bridges and Garrett Hedlund all did a great job playing their characters and I couldn’t stop staring at how hot Olivia is in that neon jumpsuit.

If your guy wants to see this, don't fight and give it a try. You will most likely be surprisingly entertained. And you know that it is a must-see when even Playboy jumped on the Tron bandwagon.

I give this movie 4/5 glowsticks. And all I want for Christmas is a Light Cycle.

  5. I saw this at the Imax last night and I fell asleep! Oops! It just wasn't for me, but I do like a lot of Sci Fi movies so I'm not sure, maybe I just wasn't in the mood!

  27. Hmmmm I'm still debating whether to watch this or not. The trailers were pretty lackluster for me but it does seem like most people enjoy it so far!

  28. I don't usually like the super futuristic movies, but since you said give it a try, i might as well do! Plus Olivia, as you've said, looked sooo hot!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey =)

    I LOVE futuristic movies! Remember "Back To The Future"? 1,2&3??? I have the whole thang - even the behind the scenes. Back on TRON.....I'll be going to see it. I think I stumble upon a article [didn't copy it] that said something about the costumes being "bad for health." I guess they're just too tight? Something like that. Of course, you can't tell Lady Ga-ga-goo-goo that, or someone that has the same cartoon mindset as she does.

  30. Er... I think I'm going to skip this one and head for Black Swan instead, everything looks too hi-tech for me and I got dizzy lol but kind of wanting to see Olivia Wilde on big screen, though.
