Tron: Legacy: A Good One #58
It's getting a passing grade, but just barely. It looks extremely expensive, but cramming product placement for Tron sheets, action figures, Coors beer and Ducati motorcycles into the first 10 or so minutes of the movie will help pay for that. It has about the same amount of plot as the original, which consists of little more than "go there, do this, come home". It features a couple of frighteningly soul-less CGI'd young versions of Jeff Bridges and one old zen hippie Jeff Bridges, and I'm not sure which is worse. However, it's beautiful to look at, has some startling special effects, several thrilling action sequences, incredible house-shaking sound, and a fantastic score by Daft Punk. Sadly, it drags whenever the humans have to do something. I watched it on Pay-Per-View.
