We Review The Latest Animated Offering From Walt Disney, The Technically Dazzling Tron.
Phil Edwards

Disneys latest multi-million dollar opus, Tron, has proved something of a failure in the usual Summer box office race in America. Exactly why is something of a mystery to me. Because Tron, simply and purely, is one of the most original movies of all time—a genuine Fantasia for the 80s.

Tron was first planned as a full-length animation feature by young director Steven Lisberger, of Animalympics fame. Somewhere along the line the production was picked up by Disney and the film turned from a relatively small budget affair into a mega-effects feature utilising the latest in computer-generated imaging and optical effects and animation techniques. The result, on the screen, is nothing short of dazzling.
