One of the earliest feature films to reflect the video-game craze of the 1980s, Disney's Tron stars Jeff Bridges as computer programmer Kevin Flynn, who becomes part of the very game that he's programming. Flynn's principal antagonist is his glory-grabbing boss, Ed Dillinger (David Warner), who likewise metamorphoses into a video-game character. The title character, a computer-generated superhero, is played by Bruce Boxleitner. Though antiquated by 1990s standards, Tron represented the last word in special effects back in 1982. Surprisingly, despite its long-range influence on the movie industry, the film was a box-office disappointment when first released. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Ahh, what can I say: it's a CLASSIC!!! Even though it can be a bit campy at times, if you grew up with this movie then you should definitely take the time to watch it again. It will surely take you back in time to when arcade games only cost a quarter (instead of a dollar). Actually, the movie holds up quite well considering special effects these days. And of course the Light Cycle scene is AWESOME!! I would definitely recommend this movie!!
BTW - I can't wait to see Tron 2.0!!!! The trailers look amazing!
