To fully appreciate this film, you have to put it in context. It's no exaggeration to say that TRON was *the* breakthrough in CGI filmmaking. Yes, the story is full of plotholes. Yes, the dialogue sounds cheesy. Yes, the effects are dated. But without TRON, there would have been no T2, no Toy Story (per John Lasseter), no Matrix, no Lord of the Rings, no Avatar, no Jar Jar Binks (okay, so that one is a downside :) ). This is the granddaddy of them all, establishing that CGI could be used to tell a compelling story and generate effects that were virtually impossible any other way. By that standard alone, this is an incredible film.

But corny as it is, TRON is a fun movie. When I originally saw it in the theater as a kid, it was amazing. Even now, when I can look at it objectively (and with three decades of computer experience), I enjoy it, and love watching it with my kids.

The story's not quite linear at the very beginning, but it's pretty easy to pick up on what's going on. I like Legacy better, but Tron is still a good movie.

The movie was great. I like all special effect in it etc... And those motorcycles they were awesome, i wish they had these in real life.

The original TRON does have a more sensible plot than the new TRON: LEGACY, however the scenes in the movie are out of place and the characters are not properly introduced. As for the special effects and the music, cheap and empty.

TheBatman is right, but this is not set in 2003. This is set in 1982, when the movie was released.

You've gotta love the classics, this being one of them. Although it's pretty funny that it's based in 2003 and that we still and no where close to doing any of that, it's still a really great movie. Plus if your going to see the new one in IMAX (like me) then it's good to know what happened in the first one. I'll give Tron a 9.5/10.

This was one of my favorite movies when I was young in the early 80's. The story actually holds up really well and is a lot less dated then one would expect. Some of the effects are still really cool (the glowing uniforms, hover tanks, bikes, etc.) but some of the computer animation obviously shows its age. Still, it is better then the crappy blue screen that was used for most movies back then. Ties in really well with a Terminator type universe. Master Computer reminds me of SkyNet.
