I think the Jeff Bridges falls into the uncanny valley.

I though it was good, it was a visually great movie with a great sound track with a weak plot, perfect follow up to a visually great movie with a weak plot.

Tron has never been a great movie, it was a fun bit of fluff, looked great, was geeky. Tron Legacy is the perfect follow up to that.

I just got around to seeing this movie.

I saw the original in proper wide screen 70mm when it came out.

Yes, most of the program characters in the original were based off programming functions or hardware (Tron was a command to initiate a Trace routine and stood for TRace ON).
[Tron's function was to watch and report on the MCP. CLU was Flynn's search utility (Get a clue). It was sent in to locate missing programs.

The movie doesn't make a lot of sense (legacy) unless you have seen the original, and are aware of the injokes in it. It's very pretty, but nowhere near as pretty as the original one was (wherefore art thou Moebius or Syd Mead?)

The soundtrack was adequate. I'm not a fan of Daft Punk, never have been and don't generally like bip bip bip dance music. This might grow on me though.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
