TRON: LEGACY As with its pre­de­ces­sor, the best things about this se­quel to the 1982 film TRON are com­puter-gen­er­ated. Sam Flynn (Gar­rett Hed­lund) hasn’t seen his ge­nius fa­ther ( Jeff Bridges) since 1989. One night, he gets zapped into a dig­i­tal world called the Grid, where he finds both his fa­ther and dad’s evil dop­pel­gänger. You’ll have fun if you just en­joy the daz­zling dig­i­tal ride. Rated PG-13. 126 min­utes. Screens in 2-D only at Re­gal North, Santa Fe. (Laurel Glad­den) TRUE GRIT Like the 1969 film ver­sion of Charles Por­tis’ novel, this is a good but not quite great movie. Jeff Bridges plays Rooster Cog­burn as a fallen hero who would rather snort than shoot. Hailee Ste­in­feld gives us a Mat­tie Ross who is a child war­rior on the vengeance trail, and Matt Da­mon is just right as the Texas Ranger out to prove he can al­ways get his man. This is a Coen brothers movie, so ex­pect dark hu­mor, ironic twists, and sud­den blood­shed. Nom­i­nated for 10 Academy Awards, in­clud­ing for best pic­ture and di­rec­tor. Rated PG-13. 128 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Española; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Robert Nott) THE WAY BACK Based on a sup­pos­edly true story, this of­ten plod­ding film, di­rected by Peter Weir, is a by-the-num­bers prison break­out tale in­vig­o­rated by some stun­ning cin­e­matog­ra­phy, dark hu­mor, and a lively per­for­mance by Colin Far­rell as a mur­der­ous con­vict. The pic­ture fea­tures some strik­ing, silent se­quences of the es­capees’ long trek from a Siberian gu­lag to safety, but when the loosely de­fined char­ac­ters fi­nally break into mono­logues de­pict­ing their back­ground story, you might wish you were in an­other the­ater. Rated PG-13. 132 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott)
