I liked it the least out of a group of 8 people that I saw it with but think it was decent enough.

If you liked the first, you should enjoy this one just as much.

The story was a bit plodding and the guy that plays Bridge's kid came off like a slightly blander version of Sam Worthington. I get what they were going for thematically but I think movie execs dumbed it down too much somewhere along the way.

The special effects, 3D, and soundtrack were great. The whole world of Tron is pretty slick visually. There were a few moments where I jumped a bit b/c I wasn't ready for something to come out at me. The battle scenes are cool and don't get bogged down in close up jerky camera movements like so many action movies do now. It made me laugh that Daft Punk is actually in the movie as an MP3 program spinning records at the night club.

I loved that the film starts off in 2D and then switches to 3D once you go into the computer. I thought it was a nice touch that echoed Wizard of Oz going from B&W to color.

I didn't remember Jeff Bridges being so "Dude like" in the first movie but its been a couple years since I have seen it. Regardless, if you were stuck in a computer for 20 years you'd probably be a bit spaced out.

There was a nice jab at Apple and Steve Jobs in the beginning that had me giggling.

Its a popcorn action flick that never gets as deep as it could but its solid as a turn your brain off thrill ride.

So all in all, I'd give it a B/B-


BTW, if you see it, do it in theaters in 3D.


(goes to C&P this into the movie thread)

IMO no way in hell is worse than either of those two crap fests.

I'd say its a step above purely for the lack of whiny Shia and company.

Everything else that is better is just gravy after that.
