I’ll get straight to the point. If you go see Tron: Legacy, the visual effects will be everything you hoped for and more. But the film doesn’t simply offer stunning visuals; it features an amazing score and enjoyable characters, both of which compliment the stellar graphics. For the most part, the film lives up to the hype.
With a mixture of white, bright orange, black and a splash of various other colors, it was hard to look away from the screen. The world where the story takes place was beautiful, and the sleek characters only add to the feeling. Throw in a rock star and an electronica score and Tron: Legacy was a party for the ages.
While the film really delivered in several areas, I can’t give it credit for plot line. It was there sure enough, but if you went back and talked it out, there are some clear gaps and lacking relevance. Fortunately, for a film like this, it doesn’t matter. I can’t stress enough that Tron: Legacy really is all about the visuals, the music, and fun characters. Trust me, with all these things included, its enough to create a film worth seeing.
I should also add that as someone who really doesn’t get the whole 3D craze, this film failed to change my mind. The whole thing isn’t in 3D, and as usual I didn’t see where it made a difference. Once again, I’d recommend you save the money for other theater goodies and opt for the 2D experience. You won’t be disappointed.
