Director: Joseph Kosinski

This is the follow up to the 1982 movie Tron Staring Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn Fighting on the grid of a virtual reality world. Fast forward twenty years we meet Sam Flynn, Kevin’s son a Twenty-seven year old tech at the firm Kevin once ran.

Sam receives a page from his father old arcade so he goes to investigate only for himself to get transported into the grid. Now a much darker world Sam get captured and sent to play on death games where he meets Clu who he believes to be his father but is just a clone of him. fighting in the games he is saved by Quorra and taken to his real father who is in hiding from Clu. Now some back story fills in some gaps and we are left with the race to escape.

Jeff Bridges delivers good performance as Kevin Flynn and Clu and Olivia Wild as Quorra is a good addition with he beauty and with her programmed robotic performance. Garrett Hedlund as Sam Flynn does a good job after being on of his only major film roles. Also a nice almost cameo from Michael Sheen. With a huge 170million dollar Budget it has been success with almost 400 million dollars made from it.

This film is visually brilliant but the truth is instead of a remake it really is just a revamped sequel. the grid games are similar only in 3d now and some added machines to use for transport.

Overall this is a good film that is well worth a watch with strong performances and good story and good visual effects. my rating is 88%
