What a load of shite! Spent £36 on two back row IMAX tickets and I wish I’d never bothered.
Almost as bad as the original for those that can remember it :crazy_dizJanuary 17, 2011 at 9:31 pm #1234732p0lyParticipant
The original was good :pJanuary 17, 2011 at 9:56 pm #1234728Anonymous
oh yeah, heard the new one sucked D:January 17, 2011 at 10:25 pm #1234733
I heard the same, but the original was really quite spectacular i thought, was made in about ’84 right? the ‘special effects’ were really at the hight of tech back then. The first film good, but I can help but think the sequel is lack lustre…..I haven’t seen the sequel, so I can only judge on here say and reviewsJanuary 17, 2011 at 11:45 pm #1234736
original is a classic – new one is absolute pile of wank!January 17, 2011 at 11:55 pm #1234734
I only saw the original like 2 years ago…..pathetic I knowJanuary 18, 2011 at 12:00 am #1234737
I just about remember seeing it on the cinema…I was 8! The effects back then were unreal, in fact even to this day I reckon they’re pretty good. I had one of a handheld Tron computer game in the 80s – you’d hold it up to your eyes like binoculars and shoot stuff – hours of fun!January 18, 2011 at 12:04 am #1234735
that sounds like one epic handheld for when your a little bit trippin!
yeah, i still think the effects are really good, it was a W. Disney and Buena Vista film, so the budget was quite high for them.January 18, 2011 at 12:17 am #1234738
was one of these…
bloody marvellous!January 18, 2011 at 12:17 pm #1234739
The original is a classic because the effects were ground breaking. The storyline though is confusing, dull and totally unbelievable. It also went on for far too long.January 18, 2011 at 7:15 pm #1234730DaftFaderParticipant

You may still like it, i went on the recommendation of someone that did, so it may just be a matter of taste.January 19, 2011 at 2:09 pm #1234731Dom_sufcParticipant
I thought it was really good.
Well, the story was slightly above average for Hollywood cheese, and the effects were amazing.
Worth watching in 3D, however It’s not the best film to see in 3D…
I’m a sci-fi nerd which probably bumped it up a bit for me.January 19, 2011 at 4:02 pm #1234729General LightingModerator
I remember just watching the trailer shown on kids TV in the 1980s, and thought the graphics were cool but never had the attention span to want to watch the entire movie. I did wonder “when will we be able to have graphics like that on our home computers?” – which of course took about 20 more years…
