TORON obtained a new energy with advanced techniques

I went to the theater to watch a movie, ‘TORON’.

‘I’ve been dreaming of an extremely ideal world. Finally, a miracle has happened. Sicences, technologies, religions…each and everything will have changed due to the new world to come.’ Kevin said his son, Sam, with excitement in 1989. Kevin had been running of his own business, which was a huge computer comapy, ENCOM. At the following day Kevin and Sam talked about such a fantastic topic, Kevin suddenly disappeared.

Twenty years later, Sam had become 27 years old and he was a major stockholder of ENCOM. Kevin’s partner, Alan, wanted Sam to join the board and run the company, however, Sam didn’t want to do it because he had been feeling like his father dumped Sam.

One day, Alan visited Sam who was released from police after Sam stole a new product from ENCOM. Alan showed Sam an old pager which Kevin ordered him to have. It had been twenty years for the pager to ring, which means the signal from Kevin. Sam went to a game arcade named Flynn’s according to Kevin’s directions. He found a secret basement there, which was a gate to the digital world, GRID. Sam had fell down to the GRID right after he entered the password into the computer.

The world of GRID is where Kevin told Sam that it was a perfect and magnificent. Each program shaped like human bodies and strict orders existed. Human shaped programs were excited with games in which drifted and unpurposed programs playing in order to survive. Security programs treated Sam as an unknown program and let him into the games. Sam barely survived the game and his bloods from his hurt proved he was an USER, not a program. The master of the world ordered other program to take Sam in front of him. Sam was surprised to see his face. Tha master looked alike his father, Kevin. In a few moments, however, Sam came to realize the master was definitely not his father. Actually, he was Clu, the program that Kevin created at the first time when Kevin started programing this world.

Clu had become a master of the world since he became rid of Kevin. Kevin ran away from him and hid himself somewhere because he must protect his own DISC from Clu. Each program in GRID has each DISC to identfy themselves. Kevin’s DISC, which was the creater’s one, was the only way for Clu to break into the real world. Clu let Sam into a terrible game again and he tried to kill him by his own. During the game, one intruder saved Sam and escaped from the game. Her name was Quorra, the only surviver called ISO; Isomorphic Algorithms. She took Sam to his father. Kevin and Quorra had been keep hiding from Clu in steep mountains which was out of ceverage of GRID.

Sam asked his father, Kevin, to get out from GRID with Kevin’s DISC. Kevin knew how strong Clu had become, so he refused. Sam came back to the city of GRID again in order to see an old program ‘Zuse’. He was the only one to know another way. Sam had reached Zuse, but something was lying ahead of him.

It’s been a long time since I I watched the original movie ‘TORON’. It was so sophesticated for the movies in that age. Thanks to advance of graphics technologis, people can enjoy the TORON’s world.

Characters in the movie was fighting with each other with their own DISC. It was quite contradictory. During the movie, someone warned not to lose the DISC because the DISC was the only way to identify themselves. Players in games threw their DISCs to their opponents as their arms in spite of such alerts. What if the DISC was damaged during the game? What if the enemy grabbed the DISC and ran way from the player?

The game in which players got ride on a motorbike thing was interesting. I believe I saw the same game in the first TORON. Lines created right after players drove like walls prevented their enemies from going through. It was like a game to occupy territories.

Anyway, I felt like I watched the original TORON again.
