Science fiction
Should you choose to see TRON: Legacy in IMAX 3-D, you will enjoy the biggest sensory overload at the movies since Avatar. As in that film, there are some story problems in TRON: Legacy that keep this 3-D science-fiction epic from the greatest possible heights, but they probably won’t factor into whether or not a genre fan loves this next-generation sequel. What may pump the brakes, however, is a particularly bad bit of CGI—depicting a digital villain in a world of humans—that looks terribly out of place alongside the other sumptuous, imaginative and even useful visual effects. Entertaining but not tremendously so, and not thrilling enough to be considered much of a joy ride, TRON: Legacy is probably a good bet for geeks, but it’s not a must-see for anyone else.

Charleston City Paper Tron: Legacy is superfluous and forgettable I'm really starting to think they hate us, the masters of the so-called entertainment universe. At the very least, they surely hold us in disdain and see us as inconvenient obstacles to their god-granted profits. If only we weren't so insistent upon such things as a powerful story and resonant themes and embraceable characters — oh, wait. We're not. Not on the whole. And so Tron: Legacy, the totally superfluous and eminently forgettable sequel to the groundbreaking 1982 flick Tron, will make a bloody fortune, not because it embodies any qualities deserving of such, but out of compelling nostalgia and, well, not much else. by MaryAnn Johanson 12/15/2010
