Tron Legacy 3D (2010)

When it's over, Tron Legacy's visually stunning special effects makes it worth the extra few bucks in 3D, and honestly, I don't think there's a better way to tell this story except in 3D giving the illusion of being trapped inside a digital game.  The story starts off where the original Tron of the 80's left off, however, it's not necessary to watch the original to understand the story.  Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner reprise their roles as Kevin Flynn and Alan Bradley, the two friends who originally started the game.  It's 20 years later, Sam, Flynn's son, finds his way into the game and is forced to fight for his life.  Sam's only way out will be to find his father, who's been trapped in the game for the past 20 years.  There's a lot of great action which makes up for the simple storyline.  I think the love story between Sam and Quorra, the last of her kind born within the game, could have been more developed to make Sam's character stronger and to give the story an emotional lift.  Overall, the movie was entertaining and actor Micheal Sheen's flamboyant portrayal of Zuse was a pleasant surprise.

My rating: 4 out of 5
