I vomited after watching Tron : Legacy

And that is NOT literally speaking!

Seriously, this was indeed the very first time in my entire life, I actually vomited my entire dinner, at precisely 2.30am, on our way back home, after the movie ended.
So, what happened?
First and foremost, apologies for all the Tron fan out there, for what I am about to write, but everybody has their own cup of tea, right?
As thrilling-action packed-long awaited-sequel this may be, to me, I regret every moment of watching it.
Ok, maybe not all, as I was indeed dead-impressed by the Tron-like-Disney Castle intro, though.
I'm blaming the all-black-scene.
I'm blaming the white-blue-ish neons.
I'm blaming the orange-red-ish neons.
I'm blaming the lengthy dialogues with such lame effort to insert even the slightest tiny speck of humour!
And the 3D effect, completely worsen my headache.
My head started to pound as I reached the 30th minutes of darkness.
The cinema was already dark in the first place, and the movie was filled with dark blue-grey-black tones, with glowing neons and glowing faces.
And the 3D made it even worse, coz the neon stripes looked brighter than average shot.
It just way tense to my eyesight, and I couldn't take it anymore, especially when most of the time, the  particular scenes were statically maintained for some period to cater to the ultimately long dialogues.
Even one white-background scene which I thought I'd be glad to see, turned out terrible due to the boring script!
After all said and done, being a fair person as always, I will review on the movie, despite the fact that I hate it, of course.
Tron : Legacy is a sequel to a 1982 film Tron.
Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, directed by Joseph Kosinski, with Jeff Bridges reprises his roles as Kevin Flynn and Clu, while Bruce Boxleitner reprises his roles as Alan Bradley and Tron.
Garrett Hedlund portrays Flynn's now-adult son, Sam.
And introducing Olivia Wilde as the heroin.

Let me refresh you on the 1982 film whereby Kevin and his best buds Alan has discovered the grid, a digital world where human get to live in it and their goal was to create a better world than the real-world.
To cut short, at the end of the movie, only Alan made it out of the grid.
In this Tron : Legacy, Sam - Kevin's son, being genetically tech-expert like his father, found the entrance to the grid and wallaaaa, there he goes discovering that his father's clone - Clu has taken over the grid and form an army to take over the real-world as Clu discovered that the portal works both ways.
Mr. Flynn goes into hide out as it seems that his disc - the thingy on his back, is the key to open the portal to real-human-world, which located on top of the Tron city whereby Clu's army in control.
And to cut short on this Tron : Legacy, the plot was for Sam and Kevin to get back home, and defeat Clu on his quest to enter the human-world.
So, if you're one of the lucky people in the world that hardly ever get headache in your entire life, by all means, please, go and enjoy the movie.
Just get the aspirin ready.
Or in my case, a vomit bag.

  1. ahhhhh baru nak gi tengok! I can't stand 3D movies. memang naturally gives me a headache. Over stimulation is the word. isk! biar mozard bawak bebudak gi tengok lah then hehe!

  2. actually, i sukaaaaa 3D..
    boleh katakan sejak 3D been introduced, we've been spending money towards that je..
    agak membazir laa jugak considering it is expensive here, but we really enjoyed the effect..
    so, this TRON-headache-stimulator, was indeed a disappointment to me!!


What say you?
