Tron Combo Package Review

I used to love watching the original Tron movie, and even more enjoyed playing the video game.  We were given the opportunity to review the combo package that is available.  The combo pack comes with Blu-ray,Blu-Ray 3D, DVD, and Digital Copy.  The most impressive part of this package is the 3D version.  Not many videos come with a 3D copy included.  This is a bold move, and one that will work.

If you haven’t watched the original Tron, then I would definitelly suggest you get this package so that you can watch them back to back.  There were a lot of things that I understood better after watching the original version, then watching the Blu-Ray verson.

This movie made a lot of sense because the movie actually continues in the storyline.  There are no major missing pieces as you find in a lot of “Series” movies.  Jeff Bridges did an excellent job in his part in the movies.

I definitely recommend this movie to any Sci-Fi fan, and even more than that any “Series” fan.  I know I will watch this movie many more times, and one of my friends also will watch this movie many more times.
