Tron/Tron Legacy [Blu-ray]Chris Harley
Twenty-eight years after the dramatic success of the original Tron film, which has developed a substantial cult following over the years, Walt Disney Pictures have brought us a sequel that not only lives up to the original's standards, but utterly outstrips both the original and all expectations. It is not often that a sequel outdoes an original, but Tron: Legacy is utterly brilliant, and is worthy of all of the successes it has garnered since its release at the end of last year.
There are some films that just simply have to be watched in the upgraded Blu-Ray format, with its exceptional High Definition quality, and Tron: Legacy ranks very high up on that list. If you have a Blu-Ray player, it is certainly worth the additional few pounds to purchase the Blu-Ray copy of the film over the DVD; you will not be disappointed, that is a guarantee.
Set in a futuristic world, known as The Grid, hidden within the present day world, this film is unlike anything you will have ever seen before. With a budget of $170 million, Disney placed an enormous amount of both faith and money in the film, and with a return of just shy of $400 million at the box office, it seems their faith was well deserved. The movie is one of my personal Disney favourites, and that includes their wealth of animated features in decades gone by. Tron: Legacy is a fantastic film, simply brilliant on all fronts.
Thanks to the incredible advances in technology, the graphics from the original Tron film are made to look like child's play in comparison to the ingenuity of the CGI in Tron: Legacy. These graphics are one of the reasons why it deserves to be seen in High Definition; if you want to truly appreciate the beauty of the film, it has to be watched in the best quality possible.
The filmmakers picked a relatively unknown actor, Garrett Hedlund, to fill the role of the lead character, Sam Flynn (the son of the character Kevin Flynn from the original). Picking an unknown actor is always a gamble with such a big film, but they made absolutely the right choice. Hedlund is one of the best young actors in recent years, and plays the role so convincingly as to draw you into the world of Tron: Legacy. The calibre of his acting is one of the finest I have seen in young actors in a long time, and everything he demonstrates in this film shows that he has already achieved so much, with a brilliant future lying ahead of him. His performance is flawless.
I think one of the best decisions the casting crew made whilst making Tron: Legacy was to bring back two of the original actors, Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner, to reprise their roles. It works entirely seamlessly in the plot, and it instantly provides the story with a successful background to inherit; in short, it gives it credibility to have two incredibly fine actors return to a film they made when they young. It is as if they are passing on the torch to the new age of rising acting talent in the form of Garrett Hedlund, and the female lead starring opposite him, Olivia Wilde.
Wilde's performance, just as much as Hedlund's, is exceptional. Of all of the roles in the film, I think hers was the hardest to do well, and the fact that she was able to do it so believably is a real testament to her worth as an actress. This is Wilde at her best.
One of the most talked-about aspects of the film is that the filmmakers decided to go in a different direction with their choice of score composers than most films do. Rather than go straight to a well-known and well-received composer, they choice instead to have the score composed by the French electronic band Daft Punk. The choice was inspired. Their score is one of the most innovative soundtracks I have ever heard, working utterly symbiotically with the film; they both truly enhance each other.
There is not a single fault I can find in this film. Everything about it emanates utter cinematic genius. Whilst I am well aware of the adage that says, 'Nothing is perfect,' I hasten to add that its speakers are undoubtedly made up of those who have not seen this film. From the moment the film begins, you will find yourself completely absorbed by Tron: Legacy, immersed in this new futuristic world that you are being presented with. It draws you into the very same quest its lead character, Sam, is on, in search of answers he has been waiting for for over a decade. It is exhilarating, it is brilliant, it is moving. Most importantly, it is worth watching. I cannot recommend it enough.
