DVD: Tron: Legacy (PG)
Joseph Kosinski's revamp of Disney's 1982 hit has all the potential to make children raised in the age of a real "grid" excited by a digital neverland – namely the return of Jeff Bridges, stunning 3D CGI, a grinning cameo by Michael Sheen and even a Daft Punk soundtrack.
But despite all of the binary gloss, the storyline of Bridge's son Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) following his father into the computer world to rescue him, ultimately lacks excitement thanks to a leaden script and the fact that real technology has overtaken the original's computer love. System fail.
