TRON

 (1982)

TRON Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

When Flynn hacks into the mainframe of his ex-employer to prove his work was stolen by another executive, he finds himself on a much bigger adventure. Beamed inside by a power-hungry Master Control Program, he joins computer gladiators on a deadly game grid, complete with high-velocity "Light Cycles" and Tron, a specialized security program. Together they fight the ultimate battle with the MCP to decide the fate of both the electronic world and the real world!

For more about TRON and the TRON Blu-ray release, see TRON Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan, Barnard Hughes, Dan Shor
Director: Steven Lisberger

TRON Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Tron -- twenty-nine-years old and counting -- will never look as polished, pristine or striking as its 2010 sequel. Between its budget constraints, production challenges, black-box sets, ground-floor visual effects techniques, and the inherent anomalies that haunt its source, the "Original Classic" seems bound and determined to flaunt its age, regardless of how much tender, loving care Disney affords it. Honestly though, I'm quite pleased with the results. Yes, Tron has lost much of its luster over three decades. Yes, its wow-factor has been hampered in the years since its early '80s release. But there still isn't another movie out there that looks anything like it, and I'm happy to report Disney has retained the film's aesthetic charms, flaws and all. You won't find any unsightly scrubbing, egregious edge enhancement or intrusive clean-up work. Lisberger, who oversaw the film's restoration, has made several seemingly minor but hotly debated alterations, but his hand is far less heavy and his presence far less invasive than that of George Lucas. Countless scratches, blemishes and marks have been carefully removed, and the whole of the film has been rejuvenated and renewed. A comparison between the Blu-ray edition and its DVD counterpart reveals just how much of an upgrade fans should prepare for.

So long as your expectations are in check, detail will prove to be impressive as well. Edges and textures are catalog-crisp and classically refined (barring the various inconsistencies that come with the territory), film grain and print coarseness are present and unimpeded, and Lisberger and cinematographer Bruce Logan's every last intention has been preserved. Faithfully, I might add. In the real world, satisfying saturation, warm colors and rich blacks create a suitably pleasing series of scenes. On the Grid, bold blues, oranges and reds mingle with inky shadows and ghostly grays, all in support of Tron's once-groundbreaking visuals. Granted, a menagerie of noise and ingrained print oddities surge and relent, flickering and contrast irregularities are unavoidable, and black levels are as bullish and oppressive as any well-informed Tron junkie will expect. Even in the real world, shadows are so heavy that they stamp out background detail whenever the lights go low. Early shots of Dillinger arriving at Encom under the cloak of darkness are downright impenetrable. But seeing as Lisberger and Logan are making parallels between Flynn's computer construct and the real world, it's almost entirely forgivable. Welcome even. Better still, Disney's technical encode is sound. While it's a bit difficult to discern inherent anomalies from those, say, caused by compression issues, it quickly becomes clear that Tron has been given its due diligence.

I'm sure a contingent of modern filmfans will write off Tron's transfer from the outset, unsure as to why Disney didn't simply shove it through a computer and gloss over its imperfections. I'm sure those unfamiliar with the film's endearing charms will scoff at its low-fi effects and the many shortcomings that come with them. And I'm sure those intimately familiar with Lisberger's original version of the film will scowl at many of the changes he's made. But Lisberger's intentions rule on high in Disney's Blu-ray release of Tron, and the majority of fans and newcomers will be more than satisfied with the results.


TRON Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's strong and steady DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is a rewarding one, even though the original elements tend to show their age. Dialogue is bright, clear and intelligible throughout, but voices have the at-times shallow ring audiophiles associate with twenty-nine-year old films. Ambient effects and music cues sometimes stampede the soundscape, acoustics are thin and limited, and directionality is hemmed in as well. That being said, the track boasts the kind of age-defying precision, LFE strength, rear speaker faculties, and immersive properties that work wonders when it comes to a cinematic artifact like Tron. The mix is front-heavy but decisive, singularly focused but altogether involving, measured but dynamic. And there aren't any jarring distractions to be had, at least none that trace back to Disney's restorative efforts. I'm sure I'll hear some grumbling for awarding Tron's lossless track a higher score, but as far as I'm concerned, the mix deserves praise. It surpassed my expectations, admittedly low as they were, and I have a good feeling it will surpass yours as well.
