In 1982, Bruce Boxleitner segued from TV to movies by starring in a ground-breaking new science-fiction film TRON where he played Alan Bradley, whose program (in his own image) named “Tron” aided Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) in stopping an evil master control program that had more diabolical plans for the “user” world. Now, 28 years later and Boxleitner has returned to the TRON universe, this time in TRON: LEGACY as a wizened Bradley who helps Flynn’s son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) inadvertently find his father who is once again trapped on the grid – this time of his own making.

Movie Review: TRON: LEGACY

TRON LEGACY movie poster - final

TRON: LEGACY opens with a very cool, TRON-ized rendition of the traditional Walt Disney Pictures logo, with the fairytale castle rendered in black, white and silver. This suggests that we’re in for a film of mild subversion that makes what we’ll see just that more wonderful. Actually, what we’re in for is a surprisingly faithful follow-up to the original 1982 TRON. Will we see an alternate universe where anthropomorphic computer programs are rendered primarily in shades of black, white and gray? We will. Will the light cycles of the first film have been updated to be more exciting and dynamic? Yes, they will. Will TRON: LEGACY have the same issue as its predecessor when it comes to thin characterizations and talk about changing the world so grand, broad and vague that it could mean practically anything? Yes, it will.
