I enjoyed it overall - even better than "Beck's Beginning". The animation style, the action - all good. I really like the way Tron is depicted, for example. His face looks so obviously like Tron from the movies without looking like some artist is trying to draw Bruce Boxleitner.
Highlights (in no particular order):
- I didn't notice: did the bit ever say "NO!"...?
- The sets; I love the look of the Grid in Uprising.
- Tron fans now have a sekrit hand sign they can flash to identify one another.
- I guess the Friend Zone exists in the Grid too.
I wish the characterizations were more subtle. Okay, I get it: Beck is reluctant; Zed is a dork, etc. (I do realize, though, that I'm waaaay outside the demographic Uprising
is aimed at...)
I hope the Tron/Rinzler transformation is handled well, and that it has no effect on the continuity presented in Legacy
. My money is on that being part of a season ending cliffhanger.
