Movie Review from EmpireOnline.com

One wonders what Tron Guy, that portly fanman with bushy moustache and homemade XL bodysuit, will make of Tron Legacy. Until now he has been a walking representation of all things Tron-world: clunky, silly, the toast of nerds, the opposite of glamour. But now, with the arrival of the mega-budget sequel, the game grid has changed. This is a movie of astonishing high-end gloss, fused to a pounding Daft Punk soundtrack, populated with sleek sirens and chiselled hunks, boasting electroluminescent landscapes to make Blu-ray players weep. Tron is suddenly, undeniably cool. But where does that leave the guy with the DIY light disc?

Movie Review from TotalFilm.com

Just a few seconds in, you can feel it. This isn’t going to one of those movies that gives 3D a bad name. The camera swoops down out of the night sky, rushes through city streets and glides up to the front door of Kevin Flynn’s house, where we see the hacker-turned-cyberman (Jeff Bridges) telling bedtime stories to his seven-year-old son Sam. It’s the night Flynn will suddenly disappear forever. For the first time since Avatar, Tron Legacy uses the technology to make us experience something new and special again. For now, debut director Joe Kosinksi wisely soft-pedals the stereoscopic dazzle. He barely needs it. Even in the real world, Tron Legacy is just gorgeous to gawp at.

Movie Review from Hollywood.com

The problems with TRON: Legacy can be traced back to its origins. According to lore, Disney execs spent years kicking around various ideas for revisiting or remaking TRON, Steven Lisberger’s groundbreaking 1982 sci-fi flick which, among other achievements, originated the concept of CGI, but nothing stuck and the project stagnated until producer Sean Bailey happened upon an effects test reel created on spec by Joseph Kosinski, a commercial director by trade and architect by training. Disney, wowed by the reel and encouraged by its enthusiastic reception at Comic-Con, agreed to move forward on a big-budget sequel with Kosinski at the helm.

Movie Review from Guardian.co.uk

The addition of that stately “legacy” to the title strains to confer a retrospective classic status on Disney’s virtual reality sci-fi thriller from 1982, about people trapped in a computer game and forced to engage in gladiatorial combat. It might have come as a surprise to some that Tron had much of a legacy; the film was overshadowed by Spielberg’s ET in that year, and in the UK suffered the mortification of being upstaged by Peter Greenaway’s The Draughtsman’s Contract. Yet a generation grew up prizing Tron for being audacious, ahead of its time, a futurist trailblazer about games culture and the digital world. Its most famous legatee is Christopher Nolan, creator of Inception, and maybe that’s the movie that original Tron fans would still prefer to watch.

Movie Review from TimeOut.com

For over a decade, Disney’s ‘Tron’ was the red-headed stepchild of ’80s genre movies, seen as a blatant attempt to cash in on the arcade craze, a film bursting with style but lacking in substance. But as times changed, ‘Tron’ was re-evaluated: arcade culture was now fashionably retro, and as our world became increasingly digitised, the film’s ideas of virtual reality and complex computerised systems became oddly prescient. It also didn’t hurt that this coincided with Jeff Bridges’s rise from dependable leading man to countercultural icon.

Movie Review from Movies.com

All the money is on the screen. They took their 200 million bucks or however much this cost and they made a dark ride that’s more thrilling and coldly beautiful to look at than anything else you’ve seen at the movies this year outside of Enter the Void. Can’t follow the plot because of all the made-up jargon? No worries, just think good people vs. bad people (you’ll follow who that is unless you’re asleep) and prepare to have your senses pounded by a wickedly loud, bass-heavy laser show. Best of all it’s not cheeky; it doesn’t wink at you. It takes itself as seriously as the original, as seriously as you want it to, giving new audiences a way in and old-school Tron-heads plenty of insider love.

Movie Review from Telegraph.co.uk

Nineteen eighty-two was a good year for science-fiction movies. There was ET. There was Blade Runner. And, according to Disney, which nearly three decades later has commissioned the first of what is likely to be a number of sequels, there was also Tron. Tron? That underwritten and cheesily performed film in which Jeff Bridges played a video-game programmer who gets sucked into one of his games? Tron was zeitgeist-chasing cheese, an attempt by Hollywood to cash in on the popularity of video arcades. It did only so-so at the box office, and, even though its computer-generated effects seemed startling at the time of its release, they quickly came to be seen as primitive.
