Fanboys rejoice! Twenty-eight years after the original TRON was released, its sequel, TRON: Legacy, finally hits theatres today. Reviews are mixed at best, but are you really going to see this movie for silly things like plot or quality acting? Hell, no! You'll be too busy getting sucked into the 3-D film's groundbreaking special effects and blipping-great soundtrack, courtesy of Daft Punk, to care. Find showtimes in your area here.
Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun Times): "It can't be understood, but looks great."
Manohla Dargis (The New York Times): "Much like Icarus, no one in Tron: Legacy gets to soar too high."
Owen Gleiberman (Entertainment Weekly): "The sequel, more successfully (if less innocently), injects you into a luminous action matrix and asks you to be happy with the ride. But it's easier now not to object."
Betsy Sharkey (Los Angeles Times): "In a way, Tron: Legacy seems an artifact from the past it's out to pay tribute to."
Nick de Semlyen (Empire): "A triumph of art direction, sound design and Gallic phat beats, but could do with a script upgrade and fun.exe patch."
