Who all's seen Tron (Legacy)? What'd you think?
We saw it yesterday, and perhaps because I'd heard the lack of positive buzz, I found it rather enjoyable... thought it was a great time.
Not really a great movie, but the visuals were certainly awesome.
I wasn't really blown away, or fully immersed with the 3D like with Avatar though.
It was really just a remake, same exact story, with the layers of the father son dynamic, and Clu replacing the big bad program.
And just like the original, it's all pretty cold and emotionally detached.
But a fun update, and great and often thrilling sci-fi ride.
Major gripes would be the Zuse character, I certainly got what they were going for there, but wow, was that miscast! (Michael Sheen?!? How does this guy keep getting these genre roles he's wrong by a wide mile at?!? I know he's a great actor, but yeesh.)
And yeah, the Clu/young Bridges effect was problematic, to say the least. I mean, I can almost admit it works as he's a program that's off from the original, but then they should've cg'd the whole body, as his head, besides being plastic and dead, was always out of sync with the live action body. It looked just like the dreaded Zemeckis animation, and not at all like the X3 young Xavier/Magneto (that from what I recalled, worked pretty flawlessly)...
Also, the whole Tron arc felt forced, serving story, without any reason for it to happen otherwise.
(LOL, not to mention the complete Dark Knight swipe at the begining, damn!)
But great visuals, fun story, and great sound, in a return trip to an uber cool place.
So, when's the next one?
