| Dated.....But Still One Of Those One-Of-A-Kind Movies You Should Check Out
When this came out, about 25 years ago, the special-effects were eye-popping. I was stunned and saw this twice at the theater, something I rarely did. Nowadays, it looks primitive. It's like when video games first came out, compared to what they are now.

However, a few years ago when the DVD came out with the widescreen and 5.1surround sound, it made it somewhat-respectable again in parts and made it still fun to watch.

The story was never that great. There was too much technical talk and the characters were the kind you really couldn't get involved over.

It's nothing super, but if you've never seen it, I still recommend it. I don't recall any other movie quite like it.

Trivia

The CGI computer screen shown when the orange is reassembled shows the connection between Lora and her program Yori: The screen reads Program: Orange, ROM YORI, KEY YORI.


Quotes

Boy in Video Game Arcade: All right, give me room. Here we go.


Goofs

In the opening light cycle battle just before Sark kills the other program, the light cycles instantly change places from Sark's blue cycle on the left and the yellow one on the right to blue right, yellow left and then instantly back again.


Crazy Credits

Certain versions of the European/American re-release have the explanatory title cards establishing the viewer into the world of the Programs and Users.


Alternate Versions

The 20th Anniversary DVD edition includes a deleted love scene: Tron and Yori go to her apartment, where she pushes a button on the wall, the walls disappears and her uniform changes into a different costume. Tron ask her " How do we get into the I/O Tower". She replies "First, you have to go all the way down" as she moves her hand down Tron's body. Also included are a partially completed "morning after" scene (after Tron visits Yori's apartment, Tron tells her "It's time to go"; however all dialog tracks for this short scene are lost), and the "light cycles" scene with its music (music that also shows up in the "here goes nothing" scene, and which Wendy Carlos would later use as the basis of one movement of her "Moonscapes" suite), on the auxiliary DVD. Also included on the auxiliary DVD is a new 90-minute "making of" feature, with cast and crew interviews, and an alternate version of the end credits, with Wendy's close music playing in its entirety, instead of cutting to Journey after the organ solo.
