The Tronix: Tron & The Matrix Compared
7.81. Jeff Bridges
KEVIN FLYNN & NEO
*Both have great power within the computer worlds, being able to control the very fabric of it.
*They both aid a group of resistance fighters.
*Both at first couldn't believe the situations they were in when the truth of the digital worlds was revealed to them.
*While both start out as the young inexperience heroes, later on they show much greater wisdom.
*They both ultimately sacrifice their lives to destroy a primary villain (Clu 2/Smith) and save the world.
7.32. Hugo Weaving
CLU & SMITH
*Both are computer programs who betrayed and left the control of their masters (Kevin Flynn/The Machine System).
*Both are the slaves to their purpose.
*They are both seen as dark versions of the two above compared heroes (Clu was created by Kevin and bears his likeness and is based on his personality/The Oracle described Smith as Neo's opposite and negative. The result of the equation trying to blance itself out)
*Both hold personal grudges against the heroes (Kevin Flynn for abandoning him when they promised to work together to create the perfect system/Neo for destroying him and trying to take away his purpose).
*Both take control over a great deal of the systems/people within the computer worlds.
*Their plans don't stop at dominating the computer worlds (The Grid/The Matrix) they plan on stretching their hands into the real worlds.
*Both show a great deal of emotion for being computer programs.
*Both were killed once before in the first but returned (if one will count the Clu from the original TRON) in the second films.
*Both in their final moments learn the truth of an emotional human concept that they could no fully grasp until it is revealed to them by their rivals (The nature of perfection being unknowable and impossible by Kevin/The nature of freewill and choice by Neo). Both through these circumstances see also the true extent of human compassion when questioning the hero's actions (Kevin while saying perfection was impossible to create was still always in front of you in those you love/Neo was deliberately making the choice against all odds to keep on fighting to save his friends as well as the human race).
*They're both finally destroyed when they assimilate with the above compared characters and die in a great explosion of light together that also wipes out their armies.
