“TRON Legacy”, is the sequel of the original 1982 “TRON” movie directed by Steven Lisberger. The 2010 version aim to be as much a technological revelation as was its predecessor. It is about 3D technology but pushed forward.
"TRON Legacy" is a high-tech adventure set in a digital world featuring Sam Flynn (Garrett Lund) and his 27-year-old son Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) who investigates his father’s disappearance and is thrown in a world of gladiatorial games where his father spent 25 years. Quorra, a new character played by Olivia Wilde is Kevin’s loyal confident … in 2010, one can hardly be safe alone and need a guide. Things happen too fast, often simultaneously so you need 2 pair of eyes to make good decisions. This cyber-universe is highly inspired by the original set and has therefore not betrayed Steven Liesberger’s version. A follow up that not only pays a tribute but also faces our contemporary innovative rush toward a full digital world.
French group Daft Punk composed the film’s score. An electro
reference that should uplift an already unique experience. Producer Sean Bailey
promises an unpredictable journey, giving us the key to push the door and enter
a virtual world but without providing us a map to navigate.
Olivia Wilde did enjoy the wild aspect of this scenario. Has “TRON Legacy” inspired her? In the pipeline she has the movie “Butter” (2011) by Jim Field Smith, which is a comedy set in the US Midwest where an adopted girl discovers her talent for butter carving and is currently filming “Cowboys & Aliens” by Jon Favreau.
Sweet, soft like butter, Olivia is a busy young beauty that should have many fantastic stories to tell us in the years to come.
For now, I have a "TRON: Legacy" ticket written on top of my to-shop list and look forward to sit in a velvet theater chair with friends and pop corn… See you there.
