WHO'S IT FOR? Those who loved the first one. Plus, anyone who wants to see something visually spectacular. You also have to be willing to sit through some slow parts.
Let me repeat myself, 20-year-old sequels are a great idea. Much better than a remake. Plus, the world of TRON actually has some reason for continuing, even it is just because of visual advancement. Speaking of this world … based on the original we know it’s a little bit under-explained and a little bit slow. Well, TRON: Legacy picks up where we left off. It really feels like a natural flow. Bridges seems to be in a class by himself right now, and I can watch his laid-back urgency all day long. Wilde’s character is intriguing enough and once again falls into the under-explained. Hedlund doesn’t fully own the screen, but he didn’t strike out with the lead either. I’ll want to see more.
It’s a great relaunch and sequel that improves on the original. With Daft Punk and some of the best big-screen moments of the year it’s totally worth getting plugged in.
That's exactly what this 5-disc collection gives you. Plus, seeing the original TRON in beautiful Blu-ray is simply an added bonus.
MOVIE SCORE: 8/10
