While investigating the mysterious disappearance of his father, Kevin (Jeff Bridges), techie Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) lands in a beguiling computerized world of enslaved gladiators, where his dad has been living for more than 20 years. Joined by Kevin's trusted friend (Olivia Wilde), the father and son must journey across a breathtaking -- and perilous -- cyberscape in this 21st-century update to the beloved 1982 sci-fi classic.

I saw it in 3D. That was probably the most worthy part of the movie. Its neon races on this dimensional field were truly effective. Aside from that, nothing can save the movie from its lack of scenario. It is poor, simplistic, uses well the ideas of the vintage video game but without the soul of it. It has its vintage moment but nothing to evoke. It is a bit sad that Jeff Bridges appears in it with a perfect interpretation for a character that is so uninteresting. A waste of an actor...
