Continuity mistake: During the fight at the End of the Line Bar, Gem walks and stand next to Castor. Later she move to the left and sits on a couch for the rest of the fight. However, at the very beginning, right after Quorra jumps and protect Sam, there's a brief cut where we can already see her sitting there, too early.
TRON: Legacy (2010)
Directed by: Joseph Kosinski
Starring: Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, Garrett Hedlund
Continuity mistake: Quorra's suit has a light stripe running down its right leg. When she's captured by Tron, the light stripe is now on the left leg. This is most likely a flipped shot as her fringe/bangs are also slanting the wrong way. (01:33:50)
Continuity mistake: At the end when Flynn is asking Sam to go, Quorra has Flynn's disc on her back. In the next shot she says "Sam, it's what he wants" and the disc is no longer on her back. And then in the next shot it's on her back again before she gives it to him.
Trivia: The two 'disc jockeys' in the soundbooth of the 'End of Line' club are actually Daft Punk, the French group that created the movie's soundtrack.
Trivia: In the first film, the street sign outside Flynn's Arcade indicates it's on Watseka St. In the second film, the street sign in front indicates the arcade is on Mead St. Also, the surrounding neighborhood seems to have undergone some redevelopment. This isn't really a mistake since a lot can happen in 28 years.
Kevin Flynn: The only way to win the game is not to play.
Kevin Flynn: It's amazing how productive doing nothing can be.
Kevin Flynn: Your old man's about to knock on the sky and listen to the sound.
Question: What exactly was Clu's vision of "the perfect system"?
Question: After Rinzler "destroys" Clu, Flynn suddenly develops the urge to switch disks with Quorra. Why? As far as he is concerned, Clu is dead. He has no reason to think otherwise.
Chosen answer: He doesn't know Clu is dead. And a little prudence never hurts. Flynn knows Clu and clearly it was entirely possible that Clu was still alive. If they all got back to the portal, it made no difference. If Clu showed up to stop them, Flynn knew what he had to do and needed to make sure that Sam had his disc to get out.
Question: Tron fought for the users, so how was Clu able to make Tron serve him?
Answer: Because Clu was given all the authority of the most important user, the creator, Flynn.
But what did Clu do to Tron to make him serve him? Tron fought for the Users so it would make no sense for him to suddenly side with Clu who wanted to create the perfect system and help him in annihilating the ISO's.
When Clu and co. attacked Tron and Flynn, Flynn's disc must have been damaged, removing his personality in a way similar to amnesia. This allowed Clu, now master of the system, to gain control of Tron's skills. Later, when Prinzler saw Flynn, he remembered him and what he did, and regained his original purpose.
The answer was in the movie itself. During a conversion between Sam and his father it is mentioned that Clu had the ability to repurpose programs. This is the action that allowed him to "build" the perfect system. The isos were manifested without creation from anything and had genuine freedom that Clu couldn't repurpose. This is why he destroyed them because it threatened his strategy to create perfection. Answer: Clu repurposed Tron to serve him and do his bidding. That simple.

Answer: Going by Clu's behavior and personality in the film, Clu's idea of a perfect system was likely a system where every component worked as intended and as expected. One where every action by programs could be consistently predicted. The Isometric Algorithms very existence went against everything that he believed was "perfect", in that by their nature their actions could not be predicted. Users also seem to exist in contrast to Clu's beliefs as their human emotions cause them to act irrationally and erratically.
