Lots of people claim this movie has no "soul" but that's very much part of the point. Much of it is about the main character's (K) journey to see if he has one and in the end finding out if he's more human than human. I get that people think this movie is on the slower side and it is but I like it because of this. I've watched it several times now and find it very meditative and thought provoking because there's space to consider. It's too bad it didn't do better in theatres because I'd like to spend more time in this world.
Gosling is the worst choice to carry on as a Blade Runner. But that doesn’t matter, The plot is inherently flawed, and commits the cardinal sin of sequels by changing elements of what you saw in the first film with references to it in this story. NOT ALLOWED! Even worse those elements are BAD and STUPID, and this movie bases the whole story on them. Hard to believe that it’s the best they could come up with in 35 years. STAY AWAY !
From sound design to props and everything in between; this movie has so much love poured into it. I wasn’t a huge fan of the cult classic that came before this but 2049 is a masterpiece even on its own. If you like sci-fi and enjoy seeing in camera practical effects married beautifully to digital enhancements this movie is for you. Also if you wanna get your freak on this movie is long so it can play in the background.
Best sci fi movie of the last ten years.
The original “Blade Runner” may be my favorite film. As 2019 was still a few decades away, when I first saw it in a theater, it was easier to overlook what was already a flawed timeline for the film. If Ridley Scott had omitted “2019” it would have given the original film — and the sequel — more credibility. With 2019 only a few months away, the differences between the world now and the world created for the original film are glaring. The sequel continues the flawed timeline of the original. With fiction, when real dates and places are being used, there has to be some logic to the world that is created. Having “off-world” colonies in these two films is probably the biggest anachronism, as interstellar travel will still be far beyond human ability in 2019 or 2049. There may be “replicants” in thirty years, and there will probably be flying cars even sooner; but having human colonies “off-world” in this century (except for budding Martian and Lunar colonies) is not going to happen, barring a universe-shaking discovery. I still really enjoyed the new film, even though I felt that the world it created was strained by having to conform to the original timeline. But it is great to forget about the anachronistic issues and watch a beautifully made film like this one — in the end, that is what really matters.
Honestly Roger Deakins is a artist I highly recommend this film 👍
This movie has been available for months, why on earth is it not available to rent?
I never saw the original blade runner, but I was completely immersed and transported to the universe of blade runner in my first viewing. Blade Runner 2049 is a rare, true cinematic masterpiece—from art direction to storyline—which a large number of viewers apparently don’t have appreciation for. 2049 is one of just a few of my favorite movies of all time.
About what I expected, drawn out...
This movie and its original move very slowly. The movie has hardly any dialogue, very little mood music, and the story is a very slow moving story. I will say if you have insomnia, you wont after watching this. I sure didnt. Its not worth your time.
