Default Don't go see Tron.

It's a terrible film. I wanted to like it, I wanted to enjoy another successful launch of a series. The movie was just god awful.

The actors were good, the special effects were great. The story was just so bad though. I take that back, there was no story. This movie makes no sense at all.

You think the movie is heading in one direction, and then it goes another, and never ties up loose ends. This was almost like they took the rough draft of a story, and didn't edit out anything. Worse actually, like they took parts you would edit out, and combined them to make this vile piece of sh*t.

I kept waiting for it to get good, and it just kept dragging on. The only thing good was that I didn't have to pay. Some lady in front was giving out free tickets because Hurly clothing bought all the tickets and were giving them out.

I can't have an opinion as I haven't seen the film yet, but this does seem to be the general consensus.

It's a shame. Before the film came out and I'd watched the trailers, I thought it was going to be a film I would enjoy. I highly doubt I'll be going to the cinema to watch it, so i'll probably wait until it's released onto DVD.

LOL. I'm going to see it in about an hour. I go into most Hollywood movies with low expectations and Tron is no different. It looks super lame but my inner geek is forcing me to go.

Yup. The first movie also bombed. It just became a cult favorite for geeks.

I just got back. It's really, really bad. It had some unintentionally funny parts at least.

It sure the fu*k didnt. I had such a hard time following that movie at first....after awhile though it kind of made a bit of sense, but at that point, the movie dragged on and on. To be honest, the first Tron was kind of boring.


It basically got alot of style points, and all of the computer tech talk in the movie gave nerds boners.
