Instant Classic - Disney at it's bestBy Talsar (31 reviews) from Vulcan , 22 Jul 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]Having seen this movie over 400 times, owned it on various formats, VHS, DVD etc, i have to say i have never been dissappointed watching this film.
It has everything that a modern classic has, and the special effects (from the 80's) in this movie, dont even look outdated to this day, this was the first movie to use full Human/CGI (Matrix etc).
You got to own this for your collection

Belongs in the last century.By JenkoDog (25 reviews) , 26 Sep 2013I never saw this the first time around. I fell asleep watching it this time. It really belongs in the last century. If you value your time on this earth, don't waste it watching this. The acting is terrible, the story is dire, the graphics are laughable. I'm writing this in the vain hope that I may spare some of you from the media torture that is TRON!!!
Showing every one of its years.By Head4Heights (13 reviews) from Woking , 22 Jun 2013I remember watching this when it first came out. I rented it 30 years later expecting some poor graphics by today's standards and wasn't disappointed. They were awful. So too, sadly, was the acting and plot. The best bit was the main evil dude's giant desktop iPad - prescient or what? The plot is generic, could have been Star Wars or a spaghetti western. The special effects wouldn't be out of place in a 1930's sci-fi.
Completely catatronicBy a customer , 05 May 2013The only people I can see this film having any appeal to are the nostalgic middle-aged who watched this as youngsters and were thrilled with the then-new spectacle of action-based gaming and computer graphics/animation. Awful. On every level.

Not quite a classic, but still a great film.By ChubbyWilliams (2 reviews) , 09 Nov 2012I never saw this film growing up, so perhaps I'm not looking this though the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia.
I can imagine watching this as a child and being blown away, but the fact is for those of us who aren't children of the 80's Tron is nothing to special. The actual plot of the film is a very standard fantasy adventure, similar to The Never Ending Story or Labyrinth (an everyman is taken from reality and placed in a magical world where they have to complete some task in order bring order to the land and return home).
What makes this film stand out is, if you have any interest in the history of film, is how amazingly innovative and revolutionary it was. Tron is basically it's days Avatar. It's use of rotoscoping and computer generated imagery changed the way people make films.
so, a pretty middle of the road fantasy adventure film with great nostalgia value and an interesting piece of film history. Its worth a watch,
