    An eyeball party. The score by Daft Punk, which veers from homages to Hans Zimmer's thundery work in "The Dark Knight" to a retro-'80s synth sound, surpasses magnificence.

    Bridges has a fine time playing with himself, so to speak. Add Garrett Hedlund as Flynn's son Sam, the rebel who zaps himself into the server to find his lost dad, and director Joseph Kosinski has a recipe for adventure that should delight gamers. Non-techies are on their own.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Tron: Legacy, a sequel made 28 years after the original but with the same actor, is true to the first film: It also can't be understood, but looks great. Both films, made so many years apart, can fairly lay claim to being state of the art. This time that includes the use of 3-D.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    The sequel, more successfully (if less innocently), injects you into a luminous technological wonderland and asks you to be happy with the ride.

  • J.R. Jones

    The special effects are incredible, blah blah blah, but oddly, the most effective element here is the original movie's striking visual design-everything pitch black except for the luminescent piping on the costumes and foreground objects-which was inspired by the primitive arcade games of the early 80s.

  • J. Hoberman

    Given the movie's graphic pizzazz, the best hippie wisdom Bridges might offer the viewer is: Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    When director Joseph Kosinski flips the switch on action, TRON: Legacy is entertaining enough. Especially in 3D IMAX, with a mega-audio system booming Deft Punk's droning Xbox-ready musical score, nearly drowning out the collisions.

  • Marc Savlov

    There's absolutely no shortage of stunning eye candy in this spiffy, sexy, and frequently thrilling sequel to Disney's 1982 game-changer Tron. There is, however, a certain lack of connectivity between the digitally enhanced characters onscreen and the user – excuse me, "audience" – in the flesh.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    With a curiously stubborn kind of integrity, Tron: Legacy follows what did and didn't work the first time – another weak story with sub-B-movie dialogue, partly compensated for by intensely conceived geometric design and special effects.

  • Joe Williams

    It's a triumph of streamlined design, but TRON: Legacy never enters the fourth dimension where it's worth a plugged nickel to humans.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Like "Avatar," "Legacy" is a film too in love with its own good looks. And like the original "TRON," the sequel's a bit of a slog.

    They had 28 years, and this is the best they could come up with?

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Bridges is enjoyable as he gives the older Flynn a Zen hero quality, and even breaks through the effects to make his younger-Clu-self oddly engaging.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The profusion of Dudes is - pardon the apt pun - game-changing. By turns a fierce megalomaniac and a Lebowskian monk, Bridges supplies more soul than any sci-fi sequel deserves.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    A triumph of art direction, sound design and Gallic phat beats, but could do with a script upgrade and fun.exe patch.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    While 21st-century effects and a cutting-edge dance score make this a stunning virtual ride, the underlying concept feels as far-fetched as ever.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

    Tron: Legacy revels in its over-the-top nature: the sharp contrast of inky blacks against vibrant neons, the bombastic clash of orchestral and synthetic elements in the soundtrack (by French electronic musicians Daft Punk), the trippy, sometimes incoherent ideas it presents.

    NPR Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    It's a handsome film, and Bridges is back, but little has been done to deepen the story into a saga, and the leading man, Garrett Hedlund, rivals Bit for inexpressivity.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    This sequel is also goofy, also eye-popping - see it in Imax 3-D if you really want to fry your optic nerve - and also weakly scripted. And yet the sheer size of the thing works against it: The effects are absolutely spectacular, but they blow the goofy-cheesy quotient straight through the roof.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    There are worse things than being trapped inside a computer game with Olivia Wilde. In Tron: Legacy, the loud, long and less than wholly satisfying sequel to "Tron," that's the bittersweet fate of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), the computer-nerd hero of both the 1982 sci-fi cult classic and its high-tech, 3-D update.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    For those in the audience, it's best to just sit back, drink in its virtual dazzle and not ask questions. The story is beside the point in this sleek-looking reboot. It's all about the whiz-bang special effects and the return of Jeff Bridges - always the coolest guy in any space, cyber or otherwise.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    New players, a new story line, a new director and nearly three decades of improved technology including all the whiz-bang-wow the latest 3-D has to offer. Unfortunately, there's not nearly enough new life.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Tron: Legacy is not good, but it is amiable. While it seems less like a parody than the original, it is also silly in a not unpleasing way.

    Time Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Legacy is a two-hour light show with a lot of flash, a little style, and not one byte of narrative originality.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Tron: Legacy gives us a dud stud named Garrett Hedlund as Sam Flynn, the hero of this petrified sequel to 1982's "Tron." None of what he sees impresses. The feeling is mutual.

  • Stephanie Zacharek

    An ungodly mess that's great fun to look at for about 15 minutes and exhausting the rest of the time.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Curiously, TRON: Legacy makes the same mistake the original did: All the best stuff comes in the first act. The rest of the movie is as exciting as an overnight round of computer coding.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A movie's in trouble when neither the hero nor the villain has charisma, and Clu is a dull dog.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The results impart that "trapped" feeling all too well. It's a sullen affair, dominated by a grim visual palette that intrigues for about 30 minutes.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    TRON: Legacy may well satisfy the fanboys who have waited almost three decades for its appearance. Enjoy. Who knows, maybe one day if you wait long enough they'll make a "Super Mario Bros." sequel, too.

  • Todd McCarthy

    It all ends up being a half-hour too much of a just okay thing.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Ought to have been state of the art. But there's not a whole lot of artistry to be found in this movie.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    A sequel with far less color and cinematic imagination, and many more bells and whistles, including a freakishly special-effected Mr. Bridges going mano a mano in cyberspace with the grizzled real deal. Twice as much Jeff Bridges does not necessarily mean twice as much entertainment - bummer.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    With a million times more computing power at its disposal than its 1982 predecessor, Tron: Legacy still looks like Disco Night at the jai alai fronton.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Disney has once again constructed a digital environment out of cutting-edge special effects, only this time, it isn't merely silly; it's as dry and talky as a PBS panel show.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Tron: Legacy is the kind of sensory-onslaught blockbuster that tends to put me to sleep, the way babies will nap to block out overwhelming stimuli. I confess I may have snoozed through one or two climactic battles only to be startled awake by an incoming neon Frisbee.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    It's dispiriting to see how little attention the filmmakers have paid to the dramatic - read human - possibilities of the original, or how much they've been overwhelmed by technology's demands. It's as though rogue programs took over the production.

    That's the culture we live in, where the once-proscribed Pleasure Principle has become iron law and where the recycled, bloated, fish-belly emptiness of something like TRON: Legacy carries boredom to extravagant new heights. Full Review

    Tron: Legacy will only be enjoyed by men in their thirties and early forties searching for a Proustian moment.
