For its time this movie represented groundbreaking affects that had never been seen before. Unfortunately the story didn't resonate with people and it bombed in the theaters. Then it gained a cult following. Of course I being a major fan of good Sci-fi can't help but consider the story and plot good, if not incredibly interesting. As a kid this movie really sparked my imagination about not what is out there, but what could be in there. Is there a whole world(s) inside the machines we take for granted every day? Such is the affect this film had on my imagination. This is definitely worth seeing once. If for no other reason than to understand the back story to its sequel Tron:legacy.
This gets a low PG for some sci-fi gladiatorial violence and some adult humor that would go right over the heads of most children.September 29th, 2011 · Details
