The first film to take place entirely in a computer. The f/x are very dated, but they have a creative look about them that make you feel as if this is a real world outside our own. The story confuses some times and there isn't much of an adventurous feeling. A few action scenes still hold their entertainment, though.

In 1982 this film must have looked amazing, because even today the special effects are the best reason to watch Tron. It's funny how vector graphics and text-based interface seem so archaic now, but it's still a pretty fun trip especially with Jeff "The Dude" Bridges along for the ride.

The first time I saw this movie I was a little kid. And all that I can remember about it was that it was really scary. But, I just now watched it again. And, I thought it was an excellent movie. The plot was kinda lacking. But, the special effects more than made up for it.

I recently revisited this movie after seeing it probably 20 years ago. I was still sucked into the story, effects, and action. True, the effects look dated now but at the time they were revolutionary. A good movie that still holds up to when it first came out, and seeing Jeff Bridges in one of his more memorable roles is reason enough to revisit this or see it for the first time.

Not a good movie. I like the concept and the special efforts are amazing (for the time). But, I can really see how a sequel will truly be better than the original 10 fold - unless Disney jacks it up. Saw this for the 1st time when I was 26.

"Tron" by Yojimbo

A gifted but rebellious computer programmer is digitised and sent into the heart of a computer system where software is personified and exists within a landscape ruled with an iron fist by a dictator called the Master Control Program. Tron was Disney's attempt to jump on the bandwagon of cinematic science fiction made popular by Star Wars and the burgeoning interest in computers and video games. It borrows heavily from contemporary films including Flash Gordon and Star Trek as well as George Lucas' franchise but its real draw at the time was its cutting edge special effects that represented the digital landscape. As you can imagine, they have dated a lot since its release but beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder, so to some they will be old and cheesy but to others the height of...
