Whilst Tron was not the massive success story that Disney hoped it to be back in 1982 (although it did go on to gross double its production costs), the more hardcore nerds amongst us kept the legacy of Tron alive, to the point where after an almost unbelievable three decades later, a sequel was produced. Whilst in some aspects the film has aged, the reason why the film has managed to stay popular for so long was because the core story concept was so far ahead of its time.
When ENCOM software developer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is passed over for a promotion after his hard work was stolen by a senior executive in the company, he searches for evidence to back up his claims. When the operating system bars his search, but Flynn continues to hack the system, the OS responds by transporting Flynn into the computer world of his design. The living, breathing ecosystem is a harsh world, but Flynn will have to play by the rules if he is to escape with his life and return to the real world.
