Tron: Tragedy

If you have any love for the original Tron, stay very far away from the new one. It isn’t like Iron Man. It isn’t even like the new Star Trek. The original Tron wasn’t a great movie, but it had a charm the new one can’t even see on the horizon. Tron: Legacy is racially offensive, over-produced, derivative, often boring, and occasionally nauseating both due to 3D and scriptwriting. With a female protagonist stolen from Mirror’s Edge, internal inconsistencies worse than the original, and allusions to its predecessor and other movies that more often than not come off as awkward, forced, inaccurate, or inappropriate: to all those who warned me off seeing Iron Man 2, I humbly attempt to provide the same service to you regarding Tron: Legacy.
