Tron: Legacy

Apes Pick: Tron: Legacy

Tron: Legacy (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

Why I picked this film: We watched the original and well, I wasn't a fan, but I wanted to see what 30 years of special effects development could do for a movie.

Beeps:  Hmmm...  Not too shabby.  I really enjoyed this.  I'd consider it a relatively mindless romp through a neon future world, although technically I suppose it's inside of a computer system.  It lacks an epic feel to it, but still is totally successful as a popcorn flick.  I don't know if I'd necessarily yearn to see it again, but it's definitely worth a watch.  Even if you absolutely hated the first movie.  Bonus points for the smokin' hot Olivia Wilde.  Yowsers!  3 Stars!

Apes: This is WAY better than the first one, but still manages to pay homage to the original with out sacrificing its own style and special effects. This was definitely a special effects over load kind of film. Still way too much neon, but much more enjoyable. Don't expect life changing, mind boggling, creativity, but if you just want to kick you heals up and vedge out this a good film. I give it 3 stars.

Overall we give this film 3 stars!
