Joined by Kevin's trusted friend (Olivia Wilde), the father and son must journey across a breathtaking -- and perilous -- cyberscape in this 21st-century update to the beloved 1982 sci-fi classic
Tron: Legacy is a masterpiece of digital technology.
I wanted to see this movie in theatres, especially in IMAX. I was unable to do that. However, I was able to watch it on my nice big flat screen, on Blu-ray. I didn't expect for the digital awesomeness of it to be that GREAT.
The colours were amazing, the subtle hues of the costumes and buildings was lovely, and....there was so much more. It was like a computer nerd's eye candy; I kid you not.
Beyond the fabulous technology Tron: Legacy encases, the story was great. It started with a clip from the original Tron, showing Sam's father leaving for work. And never coming back. It then fast forwards to modern day -- starting Tron: Legacy. We see ENCOM, a huge digital technology empire that was ruled by Sam's father. In this time we see Sam as a rebel kid of his twenties, trying to deny what's happened in his life.
Now, for the more girly fans of heart (like moi), Sam Flynn (Garret Hedlund) is the hottest thing to grace movie screens in a long while.
Step over Alex Pettyfer; Sam Flynn is now joining ranks with Xavier Samuels. (In my Book of Hottness.) So, if the story of Tron and it's digital amazingness isn't enough to get you to watch the movie, than Garrett Hedlund should be.
So what are you waiting for!? Go buy this movie! On Blu-ray! ('Cause it's the only way to do it.)
