SYNOPSIS

'A landmark in computer animation, and one of the very first feature films to reflect the video-game craze of the 1980s, Disney’s action/adventure Tron stars a young Jeff Bridges as hot-shot computer programmer Kevin Flynn, who becomes trapped inside the very game that he’s programming. Flynn’s nemesis is his glory-grabbing boss, Ed Dillinger (David Warner), who likewise metamorphoses into a video-game character. The title character, a computer-generated superhero, is played by Bruce Boxleitner. As Tron aides Flynn in his efforts to escape from the video game world, they must also band together to defeat the evil Master Control Program, whose long range ambitions include not only ruling the video game realm, but also taking over the real world as well! Cue a harrowing series of thrilling video game adventures, including high-speed Light Cycle matches, electronic disc battles and Solar Sailer simulations as the ultimate struggle for computer control heats up to epic proportions, and Flynn is left hoping it’s not “Game Over” for himself and the rest of the human race!'
