** Who else thought the older lightcycle Kevin had was going to be in a chase scene? Like most things, this is lampshaded by Website/TheEditingRoom

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: It isn't ''bad'' but it is a film StarringSpecialEffects with less of a story and acting emphasis. However, Creator/OliviaWilde gives a rather touching SkilledButNaive portrayal of her character Quorra, who could have easily ended up just another SatelliteLoveInterest. Additionally, Creator/JeffBridges puts quite a lot of work into making CLU a menacing and interesting villain since the script doesn't give him much help, and he's believably weary but likable as Kevin Flynn. Finally, Bruce Boxleitner doesn't get to replay Alan for long, but he does quite a good job in his brief scenes.



** The younger faces for Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner were both realistic-looking and moderately ConspicuousCGI. In Clu's case, this was evidently deliberate. The main problem arises because the digital younger faces use motion capture from the real actors' current faces... and neither Jeff Bridges nor Bruce Boxleitner's faces are shaped like that anymore. It's especially obvious when Clu will speak and his mouth will almost move beyond his thin cheeks.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: ''Every'' "pure" AI character wants to kill the heroes in a painful and messy fashion. ExpandedUniverse material points to plenty of self-serving spin in Flynn's official story. 2/3 of the named characters are dead or de-rezzed, most of the other third have dim survival odds, probably wish they were dead, or both. The Grid is a WretchedHive. It's arguable that OnlyTheLeadsGetAHappyEnding, but even that is under debate as Sam trudges off to a corporate job where it's clear that everyone sees him as a proxy for his father and Quorra has no analog world skills or identity. This lead to a backlash on {{Tumblr}} when Kosinski said that the planned sequel would go even ''more'' DarkerAndEdgier.

* HellIsThatNoise: The quiet flickering sound that [[TheDragon Rinzler]] always makes. Also, the track "Fall" is backed by an electronic screech that steadily increases in pitch as the song progresses.

** ''TRON [=RUN/R=]'' was also met with backlash, both because ItsShortSoItSucks and because it is developed by Sanzaru Games, which is already quite controversial for ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'', which has a DownerEnding {{Cliffhanger}} that they are not resolving. This united fans of both franchises to call out on the lack of sequels.
** The "reboot" idea has met with heavy skepticism on Website/{{Tumblr}}'s Tron fandom, both due to Koskinski's involvement [[note]] His original ideas were to center the third film on the "real" world, deal with an invasion of hostile AI trying to wipe out humans, and be DarkerAndEdgier than ''Legacy,'' which was already plenty dark and paranoid about technology like his film Film/Oblivion2013. Elements of the fanbase, particularly those who liked Lisberger's vision of AI being no better or worse than humans, were not impressed. [[/note]] and the potential casting of Jared Leto.

* InternetBackdraft: The third film's cancellation was met with ''huge'' backlash from fans and the media, citing it as a major DisproportionateRetribution against the failure of ''Tomorrowland'' and causing the latter franchise to have a large hatedom in retaliation. Pensions for it to be put back into development reached over 30,000 signatures in a week, and every post from the official Facebook page is often flooded with posts from angry fans asking for a third film.

** Flynn's Jedi-like robes, demeanor, and decision to self-exile while his corrupt apprentice lays waste to everything in range and his allies are left to struggle alone. [[Film/TheForceAwakens Luke Skywalker was apparently taking notes.]] Alan and Lora apparently turned out a little better than Han and Leia, though.

** JerkAssWoobie: CLU, ''dear god'' CLU. Yes, he became a dictator of the Grid, yes [[spoiler: wiped out the [=ISOs=]]], and yes [[spoiler: he reconfigured Tron's programming to become Rizler]], but when you ''really'' think about it, the guy ''was following the programming Kevin instilled in him''. Since Kevin instilled the idea of [[spoiler: "creating the perfect system"]], Clu simply thought he was following that idea. Obviously that doesn't ''excuse'' his actions, but when you get down to it, he was just doing what he was programmed to do. [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Makes you think Clu is more of HAL 9000]]...
