After years of waiting … the move we first saw trailers for as TR2N in 2008 – is now out as Tron Legacy.

Make no mistake about it, Tron Legacy is a very different movie than the original Tron.

It’s bigger.

And in IMAX 3D the experience is mind-blowing AWESOME.

The Daft punk soundtrack is incredible (and dirt cheap at Amazon: Tron Legacy). The new light cycles are awesome looking machines and the eerie blue and reddish neon colors of the grid are striking.

This is a visual masterpiece of cinematography and special effects that simply put — has no peer.

The story  is OK — but not nearly as good as the original Tron. The whole isomorph subplot is interesting but not as clean as just simply having Tron fight the MCP.

Having Tron as Rizler – now that was a neat twist. And CLU is an interesting bad guy ..the mirror image of Flynn.

We also really liked that one girl in white – Jen? that gets Sam suited up in the first place, and then is out on the grid strolling with umbrella. kinda neat.

However we missed the light tanks, and a sense of purpose for the grid in the first place. The finale was also a bit odd, but it does bring an end to Flynn.

Overall, this is really good movie and one that we enjoyed tremendously. After over two years of buildup by Disney’s hype machine, this movie delivered in nearly every way and is a stunning achievement of modern movie making magic.

One of the new clips that Disney showed us last night at Tron Night was one where Quorra meets Sam and gets him off the grid.

What’s interesting is that this is a non-lightcycle vehicle and that they can actually go off the grid…and oh yeah they’re headed to see Sam’s dad..
