TRON: Legacy
TRON: Legacy is a 3D action-packed adventure set in a digital world unlike anything captured on the big screen. Garrett Hedlund (Sam Flynn), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn), a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer.

With the help of the fearless warrior Olivia Wilde (Quorra), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually stunning digital universe, which has become far more advanced with original vehicles, weapons, and landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

Weather its the amazing display of lights, mind-blowing ways of transportation, intense battle scenes, or even the architectural layout of the game world. Lighting is a main focal point when seeing this film, because it is brilliantly presented from start to finish. As for the battle scenes, could you possibly ask for more? The extreme action of them will easily have you on the edge of your seat. Also...
