“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.” (Roger Ebert)
“An original and visually stunning piece of science fiction that represents a landmark work in the history of computer animation.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
“For most people, TRON’s importance is as a historical footnote. It’s the Model T of our CGI age. But the film’s fans are passionate ones.” (Entertainment Weekly)
