So: ever since your father disappeared off the face of the planet, you're a multi-millionaire orphan with serious abandonment issues and a really cool motorbike. Then one day you receive a message from your dad's abandoned office and in going to check it out you're pulled into a computerized universe known as 'The Grid', where an evil replica of your father is creating a huge army hell bent on conquering the real world.

You then discover that your father is still alive but trapped in the computer system by his doppelganger whilst he tries to protect the last remains of a creation that could change the entire world, though you never find out how. It's up to you to try and escape with your father (and creation) in tow back to the real world. Still with me? Neither am I.

In 1982 Jeff Bridges starred in the groundbreaking and now cult film Tron. The film had stunning visuals, for its time, and a phenomenal concept behind it. Eighteen years later and we're finally presented with a sequel to this 80s phenomenon. TRON: Legacy is more stylised and polished but keeps Bridges at its core. However, rather than a similar movie masterpiece, Joseph Kosinski has shown us a film far more focused on style than substance.

Making use of the technology behind Avatar, this film continues to push the boundaries of 3D films by developing stunning visuals and pulling the audience into 'The Grid' itself. Kosinski has proved himself a master when it comes to optical depth, as from beginning to end the scenery is breathtaking. The incredible visuals are only accelerated by the introduction of action into the film, and the classic light cycles are given a huge makeover. The liquid beams of light behind the bikes and the battles themselves are enthralling, leaving you desperate for more.

Despite the disc battles and light cycle highlights, this film loses its way very quickly in a convoluted and confusing story line. Penned by the writers behind Lost, it is no surprise that this film leaves you asking unanswerable questions; however the entire plot is misshapen and trudging, possessing none of the brilliant simplicity of the original.

Garrett Hedlund plays Sam Flynn, Jeff Bridges' orphaned son; however Hedlund is extremely hard to connect with or even care about. Whereas Bridges in the original was instantly lovable as the cheeky gamer with a heart, Hedlund seems cold and cocky throughout. He also often appears as unemotional and uncaring, especially in contrast to Jeff Bridges. Perhaps this was a step too far too soon for the boy who has previously played Brad Pitt's younger sibling in Troy.

Bridges, thankfully, is solid throughout the film, and although not quite as charming as his original performance, he maintains a sense of grandeur across the 125 minutes. However, acting plaudits for this film have to fall to the former Dr. Hadley, Olivia Wilde. The House actress is quirky and lovable throughout the film, and completely steals the scenes she's in. Michael Sheen pops up for a cameo performance in a Ziggy Stardust-esque role and it's a sharp, funny role; though his screen time is far too short lived.

Indeed, Sheen is not the only cameo performance in the film, as Cilian Murphy crops up in a role that reeks of a sequel, and of course Daft Punk star as two DJs whose stunning soundtrack is something else and adds an extra layer to the action packed scenes.

Tron: Legacy shows just how far visual and computer technology has come since the original film, yet there is no chance of this film achieving anything like the cult status of the original. There are some great throwbacks to the original; from Flynn's old shop to "now that is a big door"; but it's a movie packed full of product placement with a story plods along in between some stunning action moments.
