Tron Legacy

Of all the movies they could've made a sequel to, and they chose Tron. Interesting choice, open to millions of possibilities. So how is it?

Well, while the visuals and music are MAGNIFICENT, the movie as a whole is a total disappointment. While the original was no masterpiece, at least they still tried to tie in the world of the Grid with the outside world, sort of. Here, they didn't care enough to try and make this interesting and thought provoking. All they did was take the laserdiscs and lightcycles and such made a dumb action movie. They could've turned the Grid into the freakin' Internet, nearly parallel to our world, but no.

It's really hard for me to not like this movie, the visuals are perfect for someone with my taste and there are a lot of good shots, but the movie itself, save for the action scenes and any scene with Olivia Wilde, is pretty boring.

So much potential wasted for a Blockbuster.
