Movie Trailer Review

Flynn Lives in "Tron Legacy"

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim

There are a lot of things that can be said about the first “Tron Legacy” trailer, and one of those things is that it is awesome.

Introduced in theaters Friday at screenings of "Alice in Wonderland," the clip sets up Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) on his quest as he races across town to the arcade where his father disappeared 20 years earlier after announcing that he was “going to change everything--science, medicine, religion.”

The trailer has a very “Dark Knight” feel especially in the shots of Hedlund on the motorcycle as he drives to the arcade. Even if you haven’t seen the original “Tron,” it doesn’t matter. If you like science fiction and awesome effects, you’re in the right place. All you need to know is that Sam Flynn is looking for his missing father.

Olivia Wilde and Michael Sheen have quick cameos, and Wilde looks stunning in the computerized world. The music, the shots, everything works in this trailer and it makes “Tron” look as if it will be one of the more entertaining films of 2010.

And seriously, Jeff Bridges looks badass as his computer counterpart and I think Hedlund is ready to breakout. I always liked him since “Four Brothers” and I think he is the perfect fir for Sam Flynn and could become a big star if it’s successful.

“Tron Legacy” will be released December 17, 2010.
