Tron: The Beginner's Guide | Filename

Tron’s story introduced us to Kevin Flynn (Bridges), a computer programmer who once worked for massive software company ENCOM. But he’s reduced to running an arcade after having several of his games stolen by corrupt and ambitious fellow employee Ed Dillinger (Warner), who used them to rise quickly up the corporate chain. The company’s mainframe operating system, the Master Control Program, is slowly taking control of everything, blackmailing Dillinger into giving it more power and access so it can breach the Pentagon. When Flynn tries his latest attempt to hack the system, the MCP fires a digitizing laser at him, sending him into the mainframe. There he finds a world of programs that resemble their creators, and who are forced to compete in games as the MCP rules with a fist of digital iron. Flynn teams up with Tron (Boxleitner), a security program designed by his best friend Alan Bradley (also played by Boxleitner), to try to take down the increasingly powerful and maniacal MCP.
