On Tuesday December 14th, I was lucky to have tickets to go experience a screening of TRON LEGACY in 3D. TRON had been off the silver screen for 28 years. I had seen the original at the movies in Paris; yet most of you reading this were not even a plan/project when TRON was released. DJ Stiletto, who by the way should have been in the movie (serious Djamee voice) tagged along with me.
In Legacy, Disney wants to lure you in a video game via Digital 3D technology. To that extent the movie is successful. But the original TRON, worked because video games were so new at the time thus the excitement and the hit in both the arcades and at the movie theaters. Today with "Inception," "Avatars," or even "X MEN," more action packed in comparison; it is hard to leave this world and believe in TRON LEGACY's digital world. The fact that Jeff Bridges, is back in the cast is a good thing but it is safe to say there was no need for this movie if only to showcase today's technology and TRON's franchise new game (in time for the holidays). I bet anyone playing a TRON LEGACY video game on PS# or X BOX should have more thrill than those going to see the movie this coming Friday and beyond. There are some great moments and I will give you only some hints: Encom the software empire that Jeff Bridges character left to Sam his son is under CYBER attack. This is a cute observation (cliche) about today's big corporation sites vulnerability Wikileleaks backlash that resulted in major sites being attacked by hackers. This plays well with our time. Also when we see aging Jeff Bridges it is almost comical to see him dine in what is supposed to be a God like decorated living room in contrast to the vilains facist like palaces. Michael Sheen almost steals the show in a character similar to Batman's Joker.
I give Tron Legacy : 4/4 for special effects 1/4 storyline action 1/4... TRON LEGACY suffers from over exposure to the genre. None of the beautiful actors can save TL from BORING YOU; not even YAYA; who curiously has 1 line: "He is different." She made the best of it though. Shissh... don't fall asleep 3 D IMAX can get very expensive lol. Get all your visuals and Daft Punk moment worth the hype and your $$$...
