The luminescent lines and shimmering surfaces ofTron: Legacy will tantalize 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 computerized 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 originalTron, 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 becauseTron: Legacyisn'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.

Come with low expectations, and you may enjoy it...


The Matrix meets The Lord of The Rings - sadly the result takes worst genes from both. I vaguely remember the original as a kid, and even that vague memory had a better plot. The sequel makes no attempt to make any of what's happening believable in a time where skepticism of unrealistic stories is a given with sci-fi fans, and the acting is one cliche after the other. Still - fun to watch, if you just lay back and put your critical approach on hold. I spent much of the movie trying to figure out how great the (visual effect) young Jeff Bridges looks, this should have some serious impact on the industry, possibly even beyond 3D.
