Sam Flynn, a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn, a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn's Arcade -- a signal that could only come from his father -- he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe -- a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
I have been waiting to see this movie for like...forever! Anyways so when I finally got to see it a couple weeks ago, I was really happy and I thought that the movie was very cool. I thought that the most impressive stuff is all the special effects this movie must have to make it look so cool and good. Plus I just adore how pretty much everything glows there.
The story starts out when one night Sam's father disappaers after promising his son that he'll come home. So year later, Sam is living on his own, without a job, and is causing mifchief for his dad's company. As he makes his escape, he returns back to his shack where one of his dad's old friends tells him that his dad paged him hours before.
Well of course Sam doesn't believe him. I mean, his dad has been gone for years so he's probably given up. Anyways, he visit's his dad's old arcade and after poking around some he gets sucked into Tron where he nearly gets killed lots of times, meets a girl who is loyal to his dad, meets his dad and his dad's "evil twin". I'm calling mr. bad guy here "evil twin" because he and Sam's dad look exactly alike...well no, Sam's dad looks older actually.
Anyways, there's this portal thing they have to get to before it closes. And mr. Bad Guy wants to stop them and beat them to the portal because he wants to take over the real world. Well of course Sam and Quorra (awesome name by the way, it kinda sounds lik Cora to me though) beat Mr. Bad Guy and Sam's dad sacrifices himself to save Sam and Quorra who make it into the real world.
Happy ending, blah, blah, blah. Now! Onto the actual review.
Besides the really cool graphics and stuff the characters were really good. There was the one dude with white hair who was really weird. Actually...he reminds me of this one actor who played the Mad Hatter in the new Alice in Wonderland movie. The girl with the white hair was pretty cool too, but she wasn't as weird.
I thought that Quorra, Sam, and Kevin were all very good and they acted realistic to what was happening around them. I liked Kevin's house, it reminded me of a modern place. Modern because usually when you see modern places, they have a lot of white and geometric shapes/designs.
The plot was good. And it was really sad at the end, but good too I thought.
Overall, I really liked the movie. I'd give it...four and a half stars.
So, have you ever watched and Sci-Fi movies recently? Or what movie have you watched that you think had alot of special effects and stuff like that?
