The original Tron was a fun fantasy film made around the same time as Disney was getting dark with pics like The Black Hole. It seemed like a good idea to visualize computer games as little people running around inside your PC. And it was fun. But Tron Legacy rachets this up to a whole new level. I admit I was cynical when I first saw the trailer. I almost didn't go to see the movie. Boy, was I glad I did. This film is stunning. Although I watched it in headache-inducing 3D, this couldn't detract from the awesome visuals, the ubercoolness of the production design, the incredible action set-pieces, and several very fine performance, most notably from Olivia Wilde as the fun-loving compuer program and Michael Sheen's David Bowie impersonation, which almost steals the show from the SFX crew. The brilliant score by Daft Punk is set to become a classic. And this in an age when the power of movie music has all but forgotten. Yes, Tron Legacy is a blockbuster in every sense. Even the script has a wonderful emotional core - that of father/son love and brotherly jealousy. Bridges is, of course, great as always as both Flynn and CLU. So my advice is ignore all the reviews and see it for yourself! If only all summer movies had as much heart, style and power as Tron Legacy, what a wondeful world it would be!

This highly sylised reboot sees Flynn's gravel voiced offspring sucked into cyberspace on a quest to find his dad. The wonderful visuals and a thundering score take precident over a lukewarm script which goes to the enth degree to explain its own pseudo science but is far less capable at entertaining the viewer. Flynn seems to have morphed into Jesus and a series of exposition segments try to explain how the current cyber world of Tron came to be. Olivia Wilde decorates the stunning vista and the action segments are thrilling at times but there isn't nearly enough substance to the script. The action comes to a crashing halt during the climax when all seems lost before Flynn effortlessly dispatches Clu without any explanation as to how he did it, or why, after his years away, he decides to sacrifice himself at the last moment. Stunning to look at, not much to think about, and what there is doesn't make an awful lot of sense. I will watch this again in the hope that I missed something and will update my review accordingly.

I did like the original Tron in the cinema. It was always a fantasy that is appealing to gamers and this one is even more about technology and losing yourself in it. So it seems ideally suited to using immersive 3D, as a way of showing the new world that has been created.

I watched this using 3D glasses and Panasonic TX-P42GT20B 42-inch Widescreen 3D Plasma TV looking for a demonstration of how 3D can be used creatively and it took a bit of time to get going. It opens with a long sequence of 2D set-up and you feel a bit silly wearing the glasses for no reason, as it is obvious that the 3D is going to kick in when the young Flynn enters the digital world.

Having said that - the effect is stunning, although mostly giving you depth, it does make the world seem even more clean and digital - you see impossible things happen to the physics of the world - as when the initial combat literally turns upside down and it feels truly weird in 3D, in a way that is not captured in 2D.

The picture quality on this transfer is stunning and the 3D effects are as sharp as everything else and amongst the best I have seen! What also strikes you is the thunderous soundtrack from Daft Punk. I was watching this using Philips HTS5560/12 Full 3D HD Blu Ray 5.1 Home Cinema System - 1000W and it was truly earth-shaking - which all addes to the "immersive" experience from this disc.

I think for sheer cinematography and sound - this deserves the highest praise and more stars than I can give.

Sadly you cannot download the Disney e-copy even though its packed with DRM because you are not resident in Italy. I find these types of things very annoying, we are meant to be in the EU with one marketplace, yet here we are with an Italian copy that I cannot buy in Italy and bring home and use in the UK, surely that is against EU law? If not, it should be!

As for the film, its a great continuation of the Tron storyline and well worth watching. Stunning graphics and sound and I plan on upgrading to 3D soon, so to have that disc is exellent. Shame I had to buy the Italian version because there are no decently priced UK versions out there right now. Sad.

I wasn't the biggest fan of Tron and Tron Legacy was the film that 100% convinced me that 3D is a gimmick (I was 99% sure before this) but I do love Tron Legacy. It is a film that works best when you really don't think about it. The story is all kinds of silly but it works because the entire concept is a bit silly.

Garrett Hedlund does an ok job of the lead but he is wasn't the most charismatic lead of all time (or even 2010). Jeff Bridges as Sam Flynn always had charisma and it shows here, he is the key to the story and does a good job in a role he could have chewed up the scenery with. As Clu he does go scenery chewing and whilst it might have worked without the CGI (which is the weaked CGI in the film) but it doesn't quite work. For me Olivia Wilde is the stand out of all the actors, she brings a fun, child like innocence to the film as well as much needed comic relief. Michael Sheen is way over the top and the rest of the cast are just there doing a job but really this isn't the kind of film you go to see to warch Oscar winning performances.

Visually the film is stunning, not since Blade Runner can I remember a film that looked a visually pleasing. Most of the effects are great, with the exception of Clu, who looks too CGI, for some reason. The editing is generally good, most of the time it works well but there is an occasional horror of a cut, which just jars for a couple of seconds. The film does run slightly long but at no time does it feel flat or boring.

Easily the best part of the film is the score and in many ways it feels like a 2 hour music video for Daft Punk. It is truly exceptional and I would easily give the album 5 stars. What I truly can't understand was how the score wasn't Oscar nominated.
