4.0 out of 5 stars Ahh, Tron - fits like a comfy old jumper 17 Oct 2002
By P. Sanders VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Watching "Tron" again filled me with a warm nostalgia for the three-and-a-half minute squawk of my brother's ZX Spectrum loading up on a Saturday afternoon. The impressive thing is discovering how good it still looks.
Of course it's dated somewhat. But the film has such a unique style that many of the computer animation effects still work. The lightcycle race, for instance, is still exciting. Part of this is due to the effective art design, which plays to the strengths of CGI animation of the time. Machines built from geometric shapes have glowing outlines, and look cold and electronic - just as they should.
The live-action element of the cyberworld sequences were shot in black and white and coloured later. This, together with the wonderful costumes gives the film a unique feel - half futuristic, half silent-movie - that prevents the film from dating as badly as other 1980s films. "Tron" does not look anywhere near as bad as most brat-pack films do now - and they were set in the "real world"!
This DVD package is great. The extras are extensive, the animated menus are a delight, and (most important of all) the film itself looks stunning. Best of all is the line, "Without Tron there would be no Toy Story" - said by the director of "Toy Story" himself!
"Tron" is fun and imaginative. Sure there's the odd clunky line thrown in to remind you how "new" computer language was in 1982 ("They couldn't build a circuit that could hold you"). But "Tron" works best as an update of the old black and white serials like Buck Rogers - it's just good, groundbreaking fun.

By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
My son (8) quite enjoyed watching this movie, but probably I wanted to see it more having enjoyed it at the movies back in 1982. On DVD the actual film doesn't seem any better than I remember it in terms of picture quality, although apparently Wendy (Walter) Carlos's film score has been recovered as the original analogue master tapes had badly degraded. This Special Edition two disk set seems the same as the '20th anniversary edition' which also has the second DVD of deleted scenes, storyboards, the 88 minute documentary `The making of TRON', etc.. all of which is far more interesting to adults who saw the film as kids back in 1982, rather than todays kids. The extra's are all you could want really and worth a view (you even get Tron's cut 'love scene'). Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner (TRON) are very good considering they were the first to act against a blue screen for mostly the whole movie. David Warner is excellent as MCP and Sark, reprising his equally superb role as The Evil Genius in The Time Bandits (1981). Peter O'Toole had turned down his role (as he didn't fancy acting against a blue screen). TRON is actually a Hewlett Packard BASIC simple debugging command of the period, and stands aptly for "Trace On". So as we all know, "That's TRON. He fights for the users". Let's hope he's still out there. Interestingly, first use of the term `Users' has been credited to this influential movie.

Back in 2000, a sequel called TRON 2.0 was in the works, but only the visually outstanding computer game version was released in 2003 (and as in the original film the 'Light Cycles' were a highlight). Despite it's innovation, on release TRON did relatively badly in the cinema (where it looked at its best), and ironically the well received TRON arcade game spin-offs made the most profit.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful product of imagination 7 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
TRON is one of those films that sits on a shelf in a nearby DVD store and gets overlooked by several people every day and it really is a shame because this film is absolutely excellent.
It follows the story of a man named Flynn, who designed a program the credit for which has gone to his ex-employer. However, said ex-employer's self-explanatory 'Master Control Program' has developed a form of sentience and digitises Flynn who appears in the computer world where programs walk around and interact with each other and the MCP is everyone's worst nightmare.
Although elements of the story are a little ridiculous, the fun of it is not diminished by that. The big battle that is waged through the film finds TRON, a security program, and Flynn fighting to defeat the machinations of the MCP with the fate of both worlds, real and computer, at stake.
The graphics are mind-bending if you consider that this film was made over twenty years ago. The design is excellent and there are many sequences that are simply beautiful to look at. Some of the story concepts are great as well, not in the least the light-cycle arena and the gladitorial fight to the death between bikers travelling and enormous speeds.
The only reason this film has only received four stars is that, since this is a 20th anniversary special, the extras are not all that wonderful. The commentary and making-of documentary were quite interesting, but there are only a couple of deleted scenes and the remaining extras are not that captivating.
Other than this minor gripe, a wonderful purchase and a film I would recommend to anyone. Even if you don't normally like science fiction films, give this one a try - it might surprise you.

Format:DVD
I've always enjoyed this film, mainly because of its unique visual style using backlit animation and some of the earliest uses of computer graphics in films. The plot is actually fairly well structured despite what some may say, unlike the sequal where everything just seemed to be one long chase. Whilst it may have its slight flaws its still a good film.

My main problem with this item is the DVD itself - the transfer is exactly the same as the 2002 20th anniversary version, right down to the menu's! There are no additional special features unlike the bluray version which got additional special features as well as brand new restored transfer and sound mix supervised by the director Steven Lisberger! Why couldn't they have used the same transfer for the DVD instead of simply re-releasing the previous DVD?? I recently went to see this in its original 70mm format at the BFI Southbank and despite the slight print fading it was still fantastic, if only they could have bothered to give the DVD the same care as the bluray, not all of us have bluray yet Disney!

Bottom line - if you already own the 20th Anniversary edition, don't bother buying this.

Film 5/5
DVD 3/5
