TRON: LEGACY by Joseph Kosinski

tron: legacy - embitterment level - disappointment level

20 years after Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) disappeared in Cyberspace his son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) accidentally gets sucked into the grid as well and is quickly forced to take part in deadly disc fights. He meets CLU, a young doppelganger of Kevin Flynn and the ruler of the grid, is rescued by Quorra (Olivia Wilde) and finally meets his father who is trapped here since his disappearance. Together they must not only find a way back into the real world, but also save humanity from CLU.

Back in 1982, Tron was groundbreaking in concept and style Рtoday where 3D, virtual realities and rogue computer programs are quasi-standard, Tron: Legacy is doomed to disappoint. Jeff Bridges (a somewhat duderized Flynn) and Olivia Wilde (bravely and successfully avoiding the clich̩ of slinky eye-candy) are not to blame, and the grid and light-cycles look quite cool for a while, but both plot and good old-fashioned fun get lost along the way. A good attempt, but taking itself too seriously and trying too hard to convince.
