Tron: The Original Classic (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
The movie was officially premiered in back in the decades in July 9, 1982, in 1,091 theaters grossing USD $4 million on its opening weekend. It went on to make $33 million in North America, moderately successful considering its $17-million budget. Critical reviews were mostly positive; Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film four out of four stars and described the film as "a dazzling movie from Walt Disney in which computers have been used to make themselves romantic and glamorous. Here's a technological sound-and-light show that is sensational and brainy, stylish, and fun". However, near the end of his review, he noted (in a positive tone), "This is an almost wholly technological movie and bear in mind that this review was in the 1980’s which we were quite afar reaching the today’s technology. The movie is without the shadow of the doubt quite attractive and compiling and still relevant in our current days. The storyline is all about Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges
) is a young and gifted software engineer attempting to hack into the mainframe of software company ENCOM in order to find evidence that senior executive Ed Dillinger (David Warner) stole Flynn's code and presented it as his own, earning him a rapid series of promotions. Flynn is blocked by the Master Control Program (MCP), an artificial intelligence that controls the ENCOM mainframe. When ENCOM employees Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner) and Lora Baines (Cindy Morgan) tell Flynn that Dillinger has tightened security clearances in response to Flynn's hacking attempts, Flynn convinces them to let him into ENCOM so that he can forge a higher security clearance for Bradley's security program "Tron," which would monitor communications between the MCP and the outside world. They take him to the ENCOM laboratory. When Flynn attempts to hack his way into the system, the MCP takes control of a nearby laser, being developed for 'quantum teleportation' and uses it to digitize Flynn into the ENCOM mainframe. In the mainframe, programs appear in the likeness of the Users who programmed them.
However, the MCP and its commander, Sark (Warner) have long intimidated most programs into renouncing a belief in Users. Programs that refuse to do so are forced to play in gladiatorial games in which losers are destroyed. In the process of playing such games, Flynn meets Tron (Boxleitner); the two escape into the mainframe during a Light Cycle match, and are later split up. While on the run, Flynn gradually finds out that as a User he is capable of manipulating the physical laws of the digital world, which saves his life (and later that of Tron and Yori) on more than one occasion. Upon receiving instructions from Bradley to destroy the MCP, Tron
rejoins with Flynn and they board a solar sailer simulation with Yori (Morgan) to quickly get to the MCP. Flynn reveals to them that he is a User before Sark's command ship destroys the sailer, capturing Yori and Flynn. Sark then leaves the command ship and attempts to destroy it, though Flynn manages to keep it intact while Sark battles with Tron, who had sneaked aboard his shuttle. Tron gains the upper hand and severely damages Sark before attacking the MCP directly, attempting to break through its shield. The MCP transfers its functions and causes Sark to grow to immense size but Flynn reveals a gap in the MCP's shield. Tron throws his disc through the gap, destroying both the MCP and Sark, and freeing the Digital World. Input/output towers begin to light up all over the landscape as programs begin to communicate with their users. Flynn is sent back to the real world, reconstructed by the digitization laser. A printer next to him is printing out the evidence that he had sought, showing that Dillinger had "annexed" his code. Dillinger arrives the next morning to find the MCP non-functional and the evidence of his wrongdoing displayed on his screen. Sometime later, Flynn is shown to have become the CEO of ENCOM.
