TRON (1982, USA/TIW) C-96m. SCOPE *** D: Steven Lisberger. Starring Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan, Barnard Hughes, Dan Shor, Peter Jurasik, Michael Dudikoff. Cult sci-fi movie from Disney about the emerging computer age, with stunning effects that still hold up after all these years. Bridges plays a hacker, who is asked by programmer Boxleitner to hack into his old boss's super-computer, which then proceeds to 'beam' him into a video game. Interesting concept, well-made and acted, perfectly captures the spirit of the time, the advent of video-gaming.
