“TRON: Legacy” is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade—a signal that could only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

TRON bridges the generation gap like so much fiber optic bloodline, picking up right where the original left off in the late 80's, racing through a time spanning montage into the near-future where young Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund - Death Sentence/Eragon/Troy) is pixelated to an otherworldly digital universe known as the Grid, which marches to the beat of a different drum machine. Hedlund does a convincingly good job as a wealthy arrogant disenfranchised troubled boy whose deep issues over his fathers mysterious disappearance leads him on a clandestine path to discovering what happened and become a hero. Flanked by Olivia Wilde (Turistas/Alpha Dog) who is digital eye candy as Flynn's savior and heroine, and watch for cameos by Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later/BATMAN Returns), score composers Daft Punk, and smatters of one liners and references paying homage to the original. A vivid 3D theatrical experience loaded with visuals so stunning it makes the original look like PONG. Do not miss this film in IMAX 3D. End of line.
