I caught a special screening ofTRON LEGACY last night hosted by the good folks at Vibe. Starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Bruce Boxleitner, and David Warner, the 3D flick is a continuation to the 80s classic. Being someone who never saw the original or played the video game (shocking I know), TRON LEGACY was one confusing futuristic ride. The visuals and Daft Punk-scored soundtrack were on point but the plot line fell short on me. The casting of Garrett Hedlund was also a head scratcher as neither his acting or looks were appealing. I may need to visit Wikipedia for a history lesson and revisit the flick again because I think I missed a lot.
Fans of the original, nerds, and families will probably dig this one (coming to theatres 12/17), but for newbies I suggest a TRON crash course beforehand.
