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.
