|The Electronic Gladiator
Experience the original landmark motion picture that inspired a new generation of digital filmmakers and became a favorite of fans and critics across the world. Relive the electrifying thrills of TRON with an all-new, state-of-the-art digital restoration. When a brilliant video game maker named Flynn (Jeff Bridges) hacks the mainframe of his ex-employer, he is beamed inside an astonishing digital world and becomes part of the very game he is designing. Complete with hours of never-before-seen bonus material, it's an epic adventure that everyone will enjoy!

"Here's a technological sound-and-light show that is sensational and brainy, stylish, and fun.  Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Editor's Note
A video game designer trying to prove a big time executive stole his idea is sucked into a corporation's mainframe where programs are personified counterparts of their writers and "users" are subjects of religious faith. A well-crafted and scripted metaphor, TRON benefits from breakthrough computer animation.
