Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Its computer sequences exist in a blue-gray scheme filled with flashing lights, speeding objects and dizzying motion. Its visual effects are wonderfully new. They are also numbing after a while.
Fresh: For most people, TRON's importance is as a historical footnote. It's the Model T of our CGI age. But the film's fans are passionate ones.
Fresh: A dazzling movie from Walt Disney in which computers have been used to make themselves romantic and glamorous. Here's a technological sound-and-light show that is sensational and brainy, stylish, and fun.
Fresh: Not only does it introduce the humanity/technology themes that would surface in later cyberpunk fantasies, it boasts some of the most unique visuals in any film, then or now.
A Golden File Found
This movie was a classic in 1982. The casting was great, the story was well told through the eyes of a computer programmer Flynn the protagonist. This movie revolutionized the use of computers in movies from this film. From creating a world that was inside a computer this was a landmark film. Though it was made in 1982 this film has withstood the test of time and has become a classic for everyone to enjoy.
i was hoping that this would come to itunes, and im delighted to see it finally arrive.
end of line...
A classic for all techies, and everyone else.
Even though the effects aren't as sophisticated as modern films, it is important to remember that this was, in it's time, one of the best uses of computer animation-live action filmmaking ever made. If you haven't seen it, you should, as it is a sci-fi film nobody should have gone through life without seeing.
End of line.
