Once again, the Movie Slut disagrees with lamestream critics. They trounced "Tron." She applauds it. Maybe the plot and dialogue aren't Shakespearean, but let's not forget the movie's core audience. This is a flick for tween guys, video game connoisseurs.
The plot revolves around game programmer Kevin Flynn, who disappeared inside The Grid, or the inner-workings of a game called Tron. It's a bombastic, neon, futuristic universe, which plays out like something you'd see at the arcade.
It's now 20 years later and his son Sam comes looking for him. Think of it as quarters being inserted into the slot activating the game with father and son inside.
The MS chose the ultimate Tron experience: IMAX, 3D, and was swept into this stylized sci-fi world, where Jeff Bridges, as Kevin, appears as both the older and (digitized) younger versions of himself. Which brings us to the best part of the film. It actually says something. Imagine meeting up with your younger, more fool-hardy self. Now, there's something to chew on.
See it. Movie Slut Rating: Four out of five lipsticks.
