Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Qora, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey of escape across a visually stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
Sci-Fi Adventure - Like the original film, this is an effects-heavy science fiction film,
but this time with more elaborate 3D effects and action. Fans of Jeff
Bridges will have plenty to enjoy with his dual role though original
co-star Bruce Boxleitner only makes a brief appearance. Language is
very minimal though some sequences may be intense for young children.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average TRON....had a vision of the future and a cautionary message to go along with it. TRON: Legacy is grounded in the present, with little concern for what was or what is to come. It's eye candy, a passing diversion. Disney wants this to be The Next Big Motion Picture Event, but it's hard to imagine a movie as ultimately superficial as TRON: Legacy achieving that goal.
Roger EbertFull Review Good "Tron: Legacy," a sequel made 28 years after the original but with the same actor, is true to the first film: It also can't be understood, but looks great. Both films, made so many years apart, can fairly lay claim to being state of the art. This time that includes the use of 3-D. Since so much of the action involves quick movement forward and backward in shots, the 3-D effect is useful, and not just a promiscuous use of the ping-pong effect.
USA TodayFull Review Average Though this sequel has visual motifs reminiscent of Blade Runner and Star Wars and The Matrix, it's rarely as coherent as those films. Like its predecessor, which was celebrated for its pioneering computer graphics, this new TRON is glossy. But its story is impenetrable, often nonsensical.

At the epicenter of the adventure is a father-son story that resonates as much
on the Grid as
it does in the real world: 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 tech visionary.
When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn's Arcade—a signal
only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital grid 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
landscape created by Kevin himself that has become far more
advanced, with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a
ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their
