TRON: LEGACY is an action-packed adventure set in a digital world unlike anything captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the abandoned Flynn’s Arcade — that could have only come from his father — he finds himself pulled into a 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-or-death journey across a visually-stunning digital universe — created by Kevin himself — which has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, and landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
Purchased again and watched again, this has been around $20 for the last couple years for a digital copy, and itunes just dropped it down to $10, so this was an easy choice to make, especially since it’s a Disney movie and a part of MoviesAnywhere. So I purchased on itunes but watched on the Vudu app on my roku 4k. There’s nothing about this movie that I can complain about, literally everything about it makes me happy. I just wish they had been able to get the franchise back off the ground, but it’s looking like we’re going to have to wait another 30 years before we see a third movie in the series.
Sure, there was a brief (but glorious!) tv show, and while I was happy to have seen it while it was on, that too didn’t survive very long and didn’t get to tell the story that I think they were trying to tell.
