Oh man. I’ve been waiting for a sequel to the movie TRON since I saw the original at the Santikos Northwest 10 in San Antonio when I was a kid. I loved that movie. And this weekend, I saw the sequel. It was visually stunning, Jeff Bridges put in a great repeat performance as Flynn, and . . . it sucked.
Boy did it suck. There were plot threads that went nowhere. There was inconsistent internal logic. There were no surprises of plot or character development.
I was hoping for more. The best thing I can say about it is that it didn’t shatter my childhood memories the same way that George Lucas did with the three Star Wars prequels.
