This is the sequel to the highly anticipated cult classic of the 1982 movie Tron. The original was never really a big blockbuster movie, but it gained cult-status throughout the years. Tron: Legacy picks up about 7 years after the first movie with Kevin Flynn’s mysterious disappearance, but it’s takes another 20 years for his son, Sam, played by Garrett Hedlund, to find him trapped in his own creation called “The Grid”.
This sequel, like his predecessor, has amazing effects for it’s time and the action sequences are spectacular. The overall story is interesting but the execution of it felt a bit rushed even for a 2-hour plus movie. The lack of character development is what really hinders the story. I had more questions about characters of movie than it answered or showed.
If you’re looking to catch this movie I recommend seeing the original first as there are a few bits and pieces from the first film that makes an appearance in this sequel. Don’t be surprise if Tron: Legacy doesn’t blow your mind. Just enjoy the special effects and awesome soundtrack.
