Hey grownups! Tron is back!
In our latest parents movie review we discover that Walt Disney did it again with the theme of a kid being sucked into the computer. Sam Flynn, is the 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (from the first movie). Yes, the first movie for families was in 1982, it has really been that long. When Sam looks into the disappearance of his father, he is sucked into the same world of bytes and bits. The programs are the same ones that his father has been in for the past 25 years (Do the math, Sam was 2). Together they attempt to battle their way across a cyber universe of gladiator games, other stunning video games…and yes, the light motorcycles are back.
The visual effects of the new and improved Tron are excellent only they are more stunning than the groundbreaking original. The goal is the same, take down the master control program and get back into the real world. Disney created this family film, which means it is meant for younger audience, but this one is also good for Mom and Dad too, particularly those of us who were just getting our first Apples and learning where the power switch was located when the first movie came out.
This is a delightful family movie for all ages. The MPAA has rated this movie a PG. I would not call it a G because some of the games inside the computer are violent and might be frightening for younger children. Parents, take your kids to see this family movie…and don’t forget the pocket protectors and geeky glasses from high school. Your kids will forgive you in the future, I promise.
