Tron Legacy (2010) (part 4 of 7)
Sam gets brought to Clu, and we finally see Clu’s face. I’ll give Jeff Bridges great credit for his acting here. He does a wonderful job of acting like a slightly “off” version of Kevin Flynn. He really sells this role quite well in a lot of ways.
It isn’t long before Sam is Clu’d (ha!) into the fact that this isn’t his dad. Clu postures a bit, and then sends Sam off back to the Games to play around on the light-cycles. When Sam gets to the light-cycle arena, he’s introduced, as is his competition, which, surprise, turns out to be Clu, and is handed a stick. He’s not sure what to do with it, so he holds it like a lightsaber and asks how it’s used. Jarvis, Clu’s suck-up sidekick, smirks and says, “I’ll give you a hint. Not that.”
Meanwhile, yet another mysterious masked figure is watching things from above the arena. This is Samus Arn—er… Quorra, but that’s a stupid name, and a pain in the ass to type, so I’m going to call her Thirteen. Thirteen watches most of the introduction and slinks off, but you can be sure she’ll be back.
