2010 - TRON LEGACY, the sequel nobody needed except the Disney studios.

Jeff Bridges is still stuck in the Tron world in the Disney Studio's attempt to kick start the moderately successful Tron into another franchise, like The Pirates of the Caribbean or the Lord of The Rings film series.

Everything is ramped up for this remake of TronTron Legacy is in 3D and they've punked it out visually, but the computer people are still throwing Frisbees at each other,  driving light cycles around at maniacal speeds and poking each other with lighted sticks. 

To appeal to the 2010 audience of nerds they've hired a couple of hot flavor of the month actors Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund.  Pay close attention to those names, because after this film you will not be hearing much from them in the future.

Jeff Bridges in the quasi role of Obi Wan Kenobi Kevin Flynn must have cashed a very big paycheck for this film.

What Tron Legacy is really about is a cynical attempt by the Walt Disney Studios to make money without so much as a providing the audience any type of original and exciting entertainment.  The film is just a mash up of borrowed scenes from the Star Wars film series.  They probably should have called the film Star Wars Legacy.  Jeff Bridges in a dual role is the Jedi Master and Darth Vader, Oliva Wilde is Princess Leia, Garrett Hedlund is Luke Skywalker. 

Tron Legacy steals copies a lot of scenes from the Star Wars series.  The space dogfight, the clone soldiers, the father son conflict the pseudo mumbo jumbo about the force, etc.  All that's missing is the stupid robots.

A very worthless film.

127 very long minutes.
