If you like excitement, suspense and music so loud that you feel it vibrating your seat, then go see “Tron: Legacy” in IMAX 3D as soon as you can.  The movie was totally worth the ridiculous fee of $17.50 that I spent on it.

In 1982, Disney came out with an exciting new sci-fi movie called “Tron” where computer genius Kevin Flynn gets zapped into a virtual world and must find a way to escape. Now, Disney continues the story with “TRON: Legacy” where Kevin’s now 27-year-old son, Sam, goes into the same digital world to find his long lost father.

In this digital world called ‘The Grid’ that Kevin Flynn has created, Sam runs into trouble and easily makes enemies.  He must fight with technology he has never seen before to keep himself alive in this entirely new world.

Although I was at times confused by all the tech-talk, the movie kept me on the edge of my seat and biting my fingernails the whole time. With an intense motorcycle scene and plenty of combat scenes, it was perfect for an action fan like me.

As for the soundtrack, I absolutely loved it.  The whole soundtrack to the movie was done by techno group Daft Punk. The electronic sounds matched up perfectly with the electronic atmosphere of the setting in the movie.  The music was loud and caught my attention and described the situation of the movie well.

However, my favorite part of the movie was no doubt hottie Garrett Hedlund, who plays Sam Flynn.  I was really very pleased with his acting performance and of course his gorgeous face. This was really the first movie where Hedlund played the leading role and he took the center stage like a pro.

Academy Award winning actor Jeff Bridges, who plays the older Kevin Flynn, stole the scene whenever he appeared.  The cool thing about Jeff Bridges in this movie is that he played Kevin Flynn in the 1982 “Tron,” and now 27 years later he’s back playing Kevin Flynn once more.

Over all, the movie really just blew me away. The IMAX: 3D experience added to the excitement already superbly installed in the film. At moments my jaw dropped, my heart raced, and by the end I was nearly shaking with shock from such and electrifying movie.
