TRON: Legacy 3D in GSC Maxx

Thanks to Nuffnang and Glitterati Plus MY I got to watch special screening of Tron: Legacy 3D in GSC Maxx. GSC Maxx is actually the Imax cinema that is now taken over by GSC in Berjaya Times Square. I read that GSC added a dual projection to the cinema to improve the brightness of the film. This is the first time I watch a movie in an Imax cinema. It is one very big screen.


I have no recollection of whether I have watched TRON before. Even if I have watched it before I won't be able to understand the movie much because I will still be in primary school. Never mind if you haven't watch the first TRON before because much of explained in TRON: Legacy.

Jeff Bridges reprises is role of Kevin Flynn whom created a virtual cyberspace which he was able to travel to and was trapped in there for 20 years. So, you be able to see an older Kevin Flynn. It will be a different thing for Kevin's clone Clu which have not aged at all because Clu is a program created by Kevin to help him run the virtual world. Using the same technology that was used in The Curious Case of Benjamin Franklin, they made Jeff Bridges looked like what he looks like 20 years ago. Yes, Clu is acted by Jeff Bridges only in the post production they make his face younger.



The visual of the virtual world is stunning, even more so when watched in such a huge screen in GSC Maxx. I like the disc fight scene which is quite cool but found the way that they called out the motorcycle is a bit lame :p



Story wise it's not too bad but don't expect much of it. This movie is to go for the visual effect and to be wow in the virtual world of TRON. Starring Jeff Bridges, Garett Hedlund, Oliver Wilde and Bruce Broxleitner.

Rating: 7.5/10

Its not Imax screen. Imax screen is much bigger and the projector is so bright that the light beam can reach out the sky.

I've been to Times square Imax before. GSC made some changes on projector and sound system. The original Imax screen was much bigger and the sound system is more powerful than the current one.

Imax format and film reel is completely different and they need a forklift to carry the film reel. Was shown in majalah 3 years ago
