Right off the bat I can tell you that this is a flick to SEE in a theater. This is not some crappy post conversion 3D – it’s Avatar quality immersion. Awesome eye candy (and I’m not even talking about Olivia Wilde). Everything POPS off the screen and the designs are new enough to elicit some “wow” without being so far removed from the original to lose the sense of nostalgia. This is after all, a sequel to a Disney flick that was released over 20 years ago.
As for the story; Jeff Bridge’s son from the first movie is all grown up (was he even in the first movie?) and does not want to run the family business or some such nonsense. Who cares? He gets transported to THE GRID where he meets up with his Dad and all kinds of cool glowing stuff happens. Light cycles, Light tanks, Frisbee wars. Call me crazy but this kind of movie doesn’t need to be King Lear. Looks like fun and we’ll be there when it opens for reals on December 17th.
We have a bunch of pretty cool TRON posters that they gave us.
