Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

"The Matrix of the eighties," says one Netflix user, and that sums it up. The only thing more striking than the look of Tron is that it hasn't been copied for other films since. The bonus materials make it clear that the effect is not difficult or expensive to do, and yet it remains original more than twenty years since the film was released. That makes it easy to forget that the film is also a great adventure yarn brimming with good concepts; even its campiness about video games is charming.
