Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
An inventive, groundbreaking work of science fiction that initially puzzled as many viewers as it delighted, Tron inspired the devotion of a large coterie of fans who will be delighted with this newly remastered DVD presentation. As the story begins, computer games designer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) has had his series of fabulously successful programs stolen by evil corporate genius Ed Dillinger (David Warner), who uses his Master Control Program to dominate other programmers and users. While attempting to obtain evidence of Dillinger’s perfidy, Flynn winds up transformed into a computer program and meets unexpected dangers in cyberspace. Director Steven Lisberger (Hot Pursuit), challenged to create a wholly artificial world, succeeds in making this electronic battleground an unearthly, foreboding place. Live-action and animation techniques are jointly employed to startling effect; clever use of "cool" colors gives cyberspace a harsh, unnatural look. The plot and characters (with the exception of Bridges) are clearly overshadowed by the dazzling visuals, but that’s precisely what has endeared the ahead-of-its-time Tron to an army of admirers. This 20th anniversary Collectors Edition DVD includes some five hours of bonus material, including feature-length commentary, a making-of documentary, interviews with cast and crew members, deleted scenes, storyboards, a photo gallery, and a separate audio track for the film's musical score.
