Tron: Legacy

I ended up seeing a few movies in theatres this holiday season, but of the movies that I saw, the one I wanted to see the most was Tron: Legacy.

I loved the original Tron as a kid, so my opinion of it is a little biased and perhaps tinged with nostalgia.

Regardless, I tried to go into Legacy with an open mind.

It’s actually pretty good if you try not to think about the minor details.  There is a lot more fantasy than science in many of the ideas, but that doesn’t make it any less fun.

The action scenes are pretty amazing, the special effects are spectacular and the music was great.

I went to a theatre showing it in 3D and honestly the 3D was unnecessary.  There were a few times where the effect was noticeable but it is in no way necessary and doesn’t really add anything to the experience.

Prior to watching Legacy, I forced my kids to watch the original.  They say they liked it but that the “graphics” were really bad.  They both agreed that Tron: Legacy was better than the original.

I’ve read that the game Tron: Evolution adds to the story and acts as a prequel to Legacy.  I guess I will have to see if I can get a copy.  As for another sequel, I personally hope that Legacy is successful enough to give Disney the go ahead.
