Stunning visuals
23 September 2012 | by dgrv75See all my reviews

If you've seen Tron Legacy, you might have noticed the magnificent designs and visuals. Tron : Uprising uses the same visual codes, but brings it to another level thanks to animation. Lots of crazy designs are used in this episode.

When you add that to an intense storytelling, you get a rhythm that doesn't leave you time to get bored. They managed the story nicely. Voices are good, even thought not perfect (a bit too much sometimes). As per usual, we get a simple story of a single man fighting a just war against an evil empire. But the result seems is not bad.

Tron Uprising is visually stunning, done with skills and with means. It is not a poor child of Tron Legacy. However, the music is less of a success : they use Daft Punk's score on Tron legacy as a basis for basically everything. So even though it may be nice, it shows a lack of inventively.

Despite the defects, this first episode shows great promise.
