Check out my Tron collection! Plus, I share some thoughts and vintage reviews on the film. Tron wasn’t the first film to employ CGI, but it was the first to use extensive computer animation, and it still looks dazzling. Jeff Bridges stars as arcade operator Flynn, who hacks into a mainframe computer to prove that his game designs were stolen. He gets beamed inside the digital world of the Master Control Program, where he engages in gladiator-style battles featuring throwable discs and speedy light cycles. Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, and Cindy Morgan also star in the film.
