My personal favorite scene is the opening scene, where young Kevin Flynn tells his son the story inside of The Grid, the digital frontier that is expected to become true someday. In that scene, you can see for the first time the figure of young Jeff Bridges is created, the camera angle tries to distract our view by spinning the front face's image. Only then when he stands in front of the room’s door in his way out, finally you will be able to see full image of his face. That is awesome! The 61-year-old Jeff Bridges just looks like when he starred in “Blown Away” (1994). Afterwards, the story revolves around the grown-up Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) receives a new clue about the disappearance of his father twenty years ago. His investigation ends up by dragging himself into cyber universe of his father computer system creation. Thiz movie is a sequel from the first original movie “Tron” in 1982. The Director is unknown Joseph Konsinski, thiz is his first feature film for big screen. I can see some weaknesses around the plot and unnecessary dialogue, particularly in the middle of the movie. However, the high concept of how they build a whole new neon futuristic universe is fascinating, especially the bike and the car which is very impressive. I think all Cast members look cool, but only in their styles, not acting. The sexy skin tight costume on Quorra (Olivia Wilde) and Gem (Beau Garrett) are totally jaw-dropping. Michael Sheen transforms into some sort of David Bowie’s character as the charismatic night club owner named Zuse. Some action scenes are driven by great fusion of electronic beats by Daft Punk. Do you notice that the duo French electronic DJ also appears in thiz movie? Where are they? In case, if you have missed it, they appear as the masked DJ at Zuse’s Club! I know thiz movie leaves behind tons of unanswered questions, but personally I also enjoy a new whole concept of philosophies (just like in ”The Matrix” {1999}). There are so many things to think about. Why do we have to chase for the perfection? While it has already there, right in front of us all these times. Since a long time ago, I'm concerned that many of young people in thiz generation have been wasting hundreds of hours by playing video games, while there are so many things to do. Kevin Flynn is right! “The only way to win the game is not to play”. These whole things are not just about user Vs. program, Tron Vs. Clu, blue Vs. orange, or evil side Vs. good side. The movie simply reminds us that the biggest enemy is none other than ourselves.

"The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day..."
