TRON is a 1982 science fiction computer action film that features Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan, Barnard Hughes, Dan Shor and under the direction of Steven Lisberger. This year, Disney made another film under the banner “Tron: Legacy” which is the sequel to this movie. You might want to watch Tron online first prior to proceeding to Tron: Legacy so that you’ll understand the story behind the different graphical world where Kevin Flynn resides.
Here’s a brief summary of what to expect from the 1982 TRON film:
Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is a young and gifted software engineer. He was once an employee of the software corporation ENCOM, and had developed several video games after hours to start his own company. However, a co-worker, Ed Dillinger (David Warner) took Flynn’s code and presented it as his own, eventually earning him a series of executive promotions to become the company’s Senior Executive Vice President. Flynn, meanwhile, was terminated and reduced to running a video game arcade, which ironically featured several of the games he had created.
Flynn tries to hack into the ENCOM mainframe to find evidence of Dillinger’s wrongdoing, but the Master Control Program (MCP), an artificial intelligence that controls the ENCOM mainframe, blocks his attempts. Dillinger authorizes the MCP to enforce tighter security controls, which inadvertently lock out Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner), an ENCOM employee and Flynn’s friend. Bradley asks Dillinger about the lockdown and tells him about his own program, “Tron”, a security program that would monitor communications between the MCP and the outside world. Dillinger dismisses Bradley, telling him to be patient. After Bradley leaves, the MCP admonishes Dillinger, saying it “cannot afford” to have programs monitoring it. It reveals its intent to break into the Pentagon, claiming it can run things much more efficiently than “any human”. When Dillinger attempts to reassert his control over the MCP, it essentially blackmails him into complying with its wishes. – Source: Wikipedia.org
