Starring: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruxe Boxleitner
An innovative and world-renowned computer programmer, Kevin Flynn (Bridges) mysteriously disappears one day never to return. After twenty-six years, his son Sam (Hedlund) a reflection of his father stumbles upon his fathers secret office in the old arcade building. He accidentally gets transported to a virtual world inside the computer where he meets his fathers virtual clone CLU (Bridges) who rules over the computer grid and has banished his father from the grid. Sam meets his fathers accomplice Quorra (Wilde) who takes him to his fathers hideout where he learns that his father had created a clone of himself to help create the perfect system, which unfortunately betrayed his father and took over the entire system. With the portal to the outside world closed, Kevin became a captive inside his own system and has been reported missing ever since. Unknown to most people, the movie is a sequel to the 1982 movie TRON which narrates the story of how Kevin first built the system with the help of CLU and the betrayal. The movie excels in special effects and boasts of path-breaking clarity. Performances by Jeff Bridges are fantastic as always and has superbly executed both his roles. The only let down was the action which largely encompassed the regular kicks and punches and had nothing new on offer. A good and interesting movie nonetheless.
