Film, Fantasy

Time Out says

Disney's twenty million dollar bid to break into the booming fantasy market is a sympathetic but slightly clumsy rewrite of The Wizard of Oz, with a whizkid programmer (Bridges) trapped inside a computer world. The film boasts some impressive computer-generated animation, but for all its inventiveness, Tron never reaches a level of excitement commensurate with its effects budget. Indeed, in what might have proved to be a dire precedent for the cinema, Tron the video game is probably better than Tron the movie.
