The misbehaving millionaire son of a lost father learns that his disappearance was in a digital world he authored but was trapped in after a coup from its inhabitants.
The uncanny valley of the main baddy / young version of the main character is terrible. What would have been amazing is if the effect were really really improved for the "true" version of the character, but kept uncanny for his copy, Clu.
However, the soundtrack, hell the audio, and the sheer scale of the movie is astonishing. I know others don't find this movie appealing, but I love it so damned much. I love it beyond the nostalgia of the original, but as an entirely separate movie.
Oh so very highly recommended.
