The original Tron -- which came out in 1982 -- may not have aged very well, but Peter Travers credits the film for its groundbreaking concept and also has kind words for the sequel, 'Tron: Legacy.' The new film finds star Jeff Bridges still trapped inside a server, where he meets not only the avatar of his younger self but his son (played by Garrett Hedlund). Despite some confusion in the film's plot, Travers gives 'Tron: Legacy' high marks for its "amazing" special effects and the occasional dose of humor.
