Tron, I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the franchise has been, from spectacular visual effects to the amazing arena battles that make your mind derezzed. Tron is, in my opinion, a prime sci-fi take on virtual reality. Beautiful and omniscient in blues. I remember four years back when I sat at my first experience of Tron, I sat unexpectedly interested in the world I was to see. The reason why this movie bewildered me was because of the sheer creativity behind the whole project. The way the Flynn's grid was set, the futuristic costumes, buildings, hair, accessories and the vehicles all part of Tron's ecosystem. I marvelled at how beautiful the world looked inside a computer immersing my interests into the film making me want to be a part of the Grid.
When Sam fought the disc battle in the watch of CLU I craved even more as Winzler dodged Sam's disc and the tables turned as Flynn changed the gravity of the players cube. Tron: Legacy had an eery dystopian anime effect on me, almost Akira like in its nature. The scenes of techno beauty gave me the most quintessential ecstatic joy, I finally found a film that is creative, that is enjoyable, that is different, that is dedicated to that futuristic blade runner feel.
My heart raced as Light Cycles raced each other to be derezzed by opponent jetwalls...it enthralled me as Sam versed CLU, each at each others throats to see who is better, the user or the program who strives for perfection.
The spectacular visual effects was complemented by the powerful performance of Jeff Bridges and that scene where he completely takes the scene at the nightclub...wow, I have never seen that movement in a sci-fi movie of my knowledge thanks to Joseph Kosinski's artful direction. Not only did the effect accentuate with the film, the beautiful electronic intriguing soundtrack by Daft Punk kept me hooked during the heartfelt moments and action sequences so much I listen to the soundtrack if there is a day I need to be motivated. I'm not only excited for the next Tron, but hungrily waiting for the next sci-fi adventure where I can see more disc battles and grid races with a bigger ecosystem. Adagio for Tron 3.
