After almost 30 years and weeks of heavy-duty PR, press junkets, special trailer screenings and a soundtrack launch, Tron: Legacy – the sequel of the 1982 cutting-edge sci-fi Tron, is being released, adding another title to the long list of this Christmas’s 3-D bonanza.
The film will not disappoint film fanatics, at least not the ones with realistic expectations – it entertains with mind-blowing digital effects but simultaneously falls flat with its predicable storyline and naff script. Still, it’s enough to meet the appétit of the world’s increasingly large audience of three-dimensional films.
