Sci-fi action adventure sequel to the 1982 film 'Tron'. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) is the rebellious technological whizzkid son of leading video-game developer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges). After his father mysteriously disappears, Sam finds himself pulled into the dangerous virtual world that his father has been inhabiting for the past 20 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidante, fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a perilous journey across a terrifyingly advanced neon-lit cyber universe created by Kevin himself, populated with state-of-the-art vehicles and weapons - and a ruthless enemy who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen co-star.
The luminescent lines and shimmering surfaces of Tron: Legacy will tantalise anyone who's lusted after the latest smartphone. The long-ago disappearance of his computer-genius father has left Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund, Four Brothers) with existential ennui and a lot of money. When he discovers his father's secret workshop, he gets sucked into a computerised realm ruled by a megalomaniac computer program named Clu--who just happens to be his father's virtual doppelganger. To find his real father (Jeff Bridges, reprising his role from the original Tron, with a bit of his role from The Big Lebowski thrown in for kicks), Sam has to fight in gladiatorial games, drive in digital demolition derbies, and be stripped and dressed by slinky pneumatic babes. For all the techno-babble and quasi-philosophy the characters spout, this is a movie without an idea in its shiny head. It would be pointless to describe the many sillinesses because Tron: Legacy isn't actually trying to be smart; it's trying to look cool. It succeeds. Olivia Wilde (House) looks like the coolest action figure ever (if the entire movie could be nothing but the shot of her lounging on a futuristic sofa, it would be a masterpiece of avant-garde gizmo-fetishism). The facemasks are cool, the glowing skintight outfits are cool, the light-cycles are really, really cool--and let's be honest, it's all about the light-cycles. That's what the audience for Tron wants, and that's what Tron: Legacy delivers. --Bret Fetzer
