Well I got in from watching TRON Legacy and I must say… WOW! My expectations were very much met and exceeded. TRON Legacy went from my maybe I’ll watch it on DVD to my must see list about a month ago when I was at the studio and got to see 20 minutes of the footage!
Nevermind the fact that I was honored to be sitting next to the lovely lady above! Yup I ended up being at the Cast and Crew screening of TRON Legacy. And I certainly think that movies take on an entirely different look and feel when you’re watching it with the people who made it!
TRON is a great father and son story loaded with incredible visuals, and effects. It’s a film that anyone at any level of TRON viewers can enjoy. ESPECIALLY the Jeff Bridges 28 years younger facing off with himself today! In watching this movie you see very much where the concept of Matrix came from. The war between users and programs. It’s a very fun ride to say the least.
The premise of the film is that Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade—a signal that could only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years.
With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
The film also stars Garrett Hedlund, Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen.
