      Leaburn O A few marks for the quality of the special effects back in the day but the plot is dull as anything. A real film for geeks and not even a good one. Baaaasad. Watched on DVD. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Eye C I have to say it, until now, at my 46, I like it, and it doesn't look boring anymore. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Blu B A Cult Classic and arguably the first "Game" movie and still holds up.. The best part is the cinematography which is really good even though they are 100% dated. They have a style and color to them that makes everything pop and is super unique. I truly have never seen a movie with visuals like this one has and are super memorable. The effort still holds up despite being able to tell this is from the 80's. There are times I can't tell what is practically done and what is CGI a true testament to how well this is done. The idea of putting a color filter over the actors as well really helps mask and cover up and shotty outlines something that I haven't seen with any other flick. Everything else is solid. The only real issues is the characters are a bit one dimensional including the villian though Jeff Bridges is the best thing acting wise. giving a solid performance. Everyone takes this serious but sometimes they blend in. I know they are computer programs so the personality is limited though. Also, the plot can get very convuluted and this trades in character development for being eye candy and it does SLIGHTLY start to wear itself out towards the ending but it ends just at the right time. I also appreciate how this doesn't jump back and forth between the real world and video game which really immerses you in the world. Besides a convuluted plot, thin characters, and a bit more style than substance (though you could argue there is more substance here than meets the eye) this really is memorable, fun, and well put together. Anyone who is a fan of any actors in this, video game movies, or something really unique will like this. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Ángel Gabriel Q Tron es una especie de maquina del tiempo, si viste esta película en los 90s o los 00s o como lo hice yo en estos tiempos sus efectos por computadora te dejaran muy sorprendido. Una trama sencilla que va a su punto con una duración perfecta, una historia emocionante para todo el publico especialmente para los amantes de las películas de ciencia-ficción. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Alec B I don't really mind that the effects are dated as the visual design (silent movie era make-up crossed with 80s neon) remains uniquely odd. Also it's plot, with computer programs imagined as religious zealots and corporate maneuvering centered around arcade games is more compelling than it is given credit for. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review wade w Tron 1982 is a huge breakthrough and example what Disney should do now. The movie can be confusing but still enjoyable through its story, action, acting and characters even after 40 years it's shocking that it's this old and the prime time for the 80's. A good fun hit for a 80's family movie night. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Arthur Knight Hollywood Reporter It’s a bit like Through the Looking Glass combined with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea — a skilled commingling of wonder and adventure. Jul 10, 2022 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews Director Steven Lisberger treats his actors like props, which is understandable when one considers how technically oriented the project is. Rated: 3/4 Aug 4, 2020 Full Review Chris Nashawaty Entertainment Weekly For most people, TRON's importance is as a historical footnote. It's the Model T of our CGI age. But the film's fans are passionate ones. Rated: B- Apr 7, 2011 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Employing cinema’s first use of computer animation on a large scale, Lisberger’s team breaks new ground that would later shape the way such genre pictures are made. But his distant tone and familiar plot structure have aged badly. Rated: 3/4 Aug 3, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault All the glow-stick pizzazz is in service of a laughably mundane plot. Rated: B- Aug 30, 2022 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand The film was groundbreaking in its day for visualizing computing culture in an era before home computers, point-and-click operating systems, and cyberspace, and for using rudimentary computer animation to create the computer imagery… Aug 19, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
