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.
Really didn’t like this movie. Very disappointing.
The film manifest lucidly the continuance from 2019 of Deckard’s reality! Psychological difference between humans and replicants seems reverse. But the status of owners and slaves are clearly further apart. Directer Villeneuve has brought us deeper into the dark sinister future of humanity.
Buen Carro Faaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhkkkk!!!
This could have been the movie we all wanted. Expand on the ideas contained in the original. Sadly, it is not. They definitely tried to capture the film noir of the original, but missed the mark considerably. I don’t wish to spoil anything, so I won’t include any too specific comments. The main story line suffers badly from fragmentation and from a really poorly thought out villain. The main secondary story is pretty much gratuitous because it doesn’t tie very well into the main character’s development. The tie to the previous blade runner almost fails to manifest, and when it does, it is really poorly thought out. Ultimately, this movies fails to deliver because of very poor writing and plotting.
Taking this story into the next generation is just a bad idea. The lengthy drawn out scenes are supposed to make us think about falsely inflated importance of the very thin plot. Total disappointment. We saw the original when it first came out, and loved it. If this follow up movie had been made a couple of years after Blade Runner, it would have been laughed at,and we would have walked out of the theatre. Booooooo
I liked that there was continuity in the main plot, that it was centered on the story of Rachel & Deckard, and that similarities exist between the worlds in 2019 and 2049. There were a few interesting new elements, like the mobile holographic AI companion (a wink back at Weyland-Yutani?) that can sync with your partner for you—to make 21st century geeks happy, I guess; the daughter with a genetic immunodefficiency living behind the glass who has the ability to blend authentic and synthetic memories; and the new psychological (?) test for replicants. The characters were a bit less feisty than those in 2019 but the world was also darker in 2049. I think I saw a touch of 2001 in Deckard’s place and a bit of Matrix in Wallace’s goons. Wallace seemed like a greedy and murderous businessman who has no creative clue, despite his “20 menthol Kools” eyes. What I didn’t like is, the plot was developed only along the line that Deckard is a replicant. Seriously? There is a danger of the BR franchise to become another Planet of the Apes instead of a masterpiece analysis of what “human” means. There was less depth to everything (characters, situations, places, objects) in the sequel than in the first film; the original multilayered structure of the plot was also missing. A Mad Max-ish San Diego area, with low-tech weapons that can take spinners down, left some questions open: ‘Humanity at its end.’ K’s death was less memorable than Roy’s, despite the use of the same musical theme; there are no ‘attack ships on fire’ this time. Gosling is a real movie star and the emotional climax was reached for his character when he realized that he was not the prodigal son. The score was good but it didn’t compare to what Vangelis created in the original title. Overall, I think the film is very good, yet in a different way from the first one, and Villeneuve was the best choice for director. Pace was also good but the film could have been shorter by one hour. This is not the BR world that I knew; this world is in agony, dark and decaying. I am listening to some of the titles on the soundtrack—Rain, Memory, Orphanage, Furnace, Someone Lived This, That’s Why We Believe, Her Eyes Were Green... Unfolding the past to achieve catharsis. I give this film a 4/5, can’t wait for BR3, hopefully it’s on the way. Update: I have watched this film again, and I listen to the sound track in the car every dat, and it’s wrapping around my mind and my soul...
just really bad acting
Denis Villeneuve is one of best directors working today. He took a classic film and made his own, and then went even further. Beautiful script, great performances by all of the actors and cinematography worthy of an oscar. Grand in scope, but deeply human and emotional, it touches many universal themes without ever preaching.
2nd best movie of 2017 Beijing get out. Absolutely phenomenal
This movie is one of the best sequels EVEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! This is now one of my new favourite movies ever, right beside the first Blade Runner. Almost everything in this movie is flawless. The acting, directing, writing, plot, effects, cinema photography, pacing, sets, colour pallets, editing, lighting almost everything in this movie is blended together perfectly to make an almost perfect movie.
Malgré la longueur interminable du film...l’histoire est monté avec brio de toute pièce. Chapeau!!
Very VERY disappointed--turned it off well before ending--found it hard to hold your interest . Why spoil the first Blade Runner !
