A.V. Club: "The original Tron wasn’t a good movie. The pacing was terrible, the script an amalgam of fantasy clichés and ill-used tech speak, and the story didn’t make a whole lot of sense. On the other hand, the movie did have Jeff Bridges, David Warner, and, most memorably, a distinctive visual style. It’s that style that inspired the film’s devoted cult following and led to a theatrical sequel, Tron: Legacy, premiering nearly three decades after the original hit screens."
