THE PLOT:

Kevin Flynn is out to prove that the head of the biggest game manufacture Ed Dillenger stole his idea for video games that he did on his own time.

But the MCP has other plans and uses an experimental laser on him which transports Kevin to the world of the computer. His only hope for escaping the games is a program named Tron.

Can Tron and Kevin stop the MCP's mad plot to conquer the computerized world in essence the real world?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I was eleven years old when Tron came out in the theaters and I loved it. I loved the characters and the whole world of Tron, I felt that we were really inside the world of the computer. I loved the characters, the story line, the monster effects of the MCP. The cast does a great job, it's Disney magic at it's finest. Plus it was a pioneer in computer animation. If it wasn't for TRON, movies like SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW could never have been made or a number of other movies which depend allot on the computer to make effects. Tron is a true classic and if you haven't seen it yet, then where the hell have you been? See it, learn it, love it. Tron is one of the best movies ever made and I for a party of one can't get enough of it. I give the perfect movie, the perfect score...10 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree for the most part on what Zedd wrote, it's a mile stone in effects and a great story, but I do have one complaint. I wish they did more with the Grid Bugs, they popped in for one quick scene and never seen again. What's up with that? Anyway, it doesn't effect my grade for this movie in the slightest and I give TRON...10 STARS as well.
