When I checked this out from the library and watched it, I loved it so much that i bought it! This movie has a great storyline for a single movie with no prequels or sequels, and if you love sci-fi movies and electronic music, this movie is a perfect fit.
I think this movie is best seen on the IMAX 3D screen, so it doesn't translate as well to a tiny movie screen. But it's still worth checking out just for the fun of it. The soundtrack is GREAT, Jeff Bridges is his usual wonderful self, and the effects are beautiful and fun. When I saw this in the theater, I thought, "This is what the 80s wanted to do but couldn't."

The first Tron scored big with its originality and visual effects as we got an idea of what a cyber world might be like. Tron Legacy was fun to watch because of how much the visual effects in movies have evolved. I just wish the plot was more "user" friendly.
I thought this was a great movie. The only thing I didn't like about it was that they changed something that the first movie had that i liked. Overall it was a great movie and would recommend it to anyone who likes action movies.
I was kind of bummed not to bee able to see Tron: Legacy in 3D, and having seen it on my old living room TV reinforced this notion. Though I am not a fan of runaway computer graphics, the special effects team behind this movie was absolutely astounding. The effects worked seamlessly for me, and the costumes and scenery serve as an effective, flashy showcase of the ability of modern technology to enhance live action without needing to overwhelm. That said, however, I felt that the plot resembled, at times, a fine Swiss cheese. Homages to the original (a now-he's-resurrected-now-he's-not Tron yelling, "I fight for users!") are appreciated but often feel out of place, present only for a bit of cache with those in the know. The Deeper Meaning was inevitable for a science fiction film dealing with cyberspace, but I expected a bit more intellectual entanglement, even for a flashy action film. Tron: Legacy certainly makes overtures toward a deeper sensibility, but ultimately fails to engage its ideas in a meaningful way. Despite this, however, the movie is fun, if a bit confusing, and is well worth its two hours.
Despite being a fan of the original, and participating in the ARG for the release of Legacy, I was torn about seeing this in the theaters. I avoided it because I was worried it I would be disappointed.
I'm not disappointed. No, it's not a Sorkin-esque masterpiece of character and dialogue. But it is quite a bit of fun and is a nice contrast to Scott Pilgrim v. the World (a favorite in this household) as far as interpretations of gaming worlds manifested go. There's the right amount of homage to the original film to make us original fans appreciate being old-timers, and enough hipper, younger flashiness to satisfy the noobs. I'm glad I (finally) watched it.
