Loved, loved Bladerunner but, this well, at times too tedious. Not recommended unless you are just lacking of anything else to watch.
Waste of money to rent. Wait til it’s free, then go watch something else.
Wanted to like this movie but too slow and too long.
A masterpiece, pure and simple. Few movies achieve this level of artistry and even fewer sequals are as good as or better than the originals - this film does both with a grace and style all its own. More human than human...
I don’t write reviews but this move was amaaaaazing. Amaaazing. So well shot and written and engrossing. It’s long which is wonderful cause I didn’t want it to end. Some parts though are a little slow but filled with tension.
Mind blowing in evrythings just watch it.
Great movie, but it doesn’t answer the question is Harrison Ford a Replicant? Can’t wait for the third movie and I hope it answers the added questions unanswered by this movie. Overall a 5 plus Star Movie just like the first movie.
This movie is so boring, I couldn’t wait for it to end. Fortunately I feel asleep and didn’t have to suffer through it any longer. Don’t waste your money.
First, this is not your typical action packed, and explosion laden edge of your seat brainless B-movie Sci-Fi flick. Yes, there is a good story here and yes it might move a little slow for the video game millennialists, but at its core, it is a story set in a hypothetical dystopian future. For fans of the original Blade Runner it wraps up some long going debates and questions concerning Deckard (who we might have liked to have seen introduced a little earlier in this sequel along with more screen time). Cinematically, the movie is outstanding...paying homage to the original BR as well as taking on a look of its own. While there is perhaps a lack of action for much of the movie, you can feel the tension building throughout. The movie might have benefitted from an antagonist with a little more gravitas or charisma, but Leto did a fine job as Wallace, given the character's limitations. Overall, I really enjoyed the movie, it was a nostalgic trip down memory lane with a twist.
the movie really was about nothing. not worth watching, look up the soundtrack, that is the only thing worthwile of this movie.
I watched this movie 3 times in theatre, I’m sorry if you didn’t get to experience it there cause this movie is so beautiful visually. Now that I own this movie I plan to watch it at least once a week !
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 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 7.5/10, hopefully BR3 is on the way ;)
If I could bill Hollywood for my 3 hours..I would. I think 1959 Ben Hur was faster moving and felt shorter. You could edit the dead scenes out and get the movie to 15 mins of actual movement. All I can say is WHOW !!
Tarkovky's "Stalker" will get you more action and goose bumps than 10 movies like that.
Wow, worst sequel ever, well, not quite the worst, maybe because I expected something like the oringinal, which, imo, was a action movie, and 2049 is an "abstract cinema" film type. .
This movie was ridiculously boring, and very slow paced. The cinematography is excellent, but thats about it. If you're into nice views and picturesque movies, than this is the movie for you.
I have been waiting a long time for this movie to come out, and am glad I did not purchase it when it became available; not because its bad but because I expected it to meet or exceed the original. This Blade runner is really good with the exception of it having a few scenes that drag out to long, and a lack of suspence, unlike the original.
what a piece of crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great sequel but a about an hour too long. The cinematography kept to the original concept. The first 2/3 is really boring but it gets better once Ford’s character is introduced.
I see a lot of movies, about four every month and this was the absolute worst movie I have seen in over four years! Melissa and I along with the other 500+ people in the theater sat in silence after this three hour movie until I said quiet loudly “What on earth did we just watch?” After that everyone in the theater started tearing this poorly written and poorly made movie apart. There is not one part of this movie that is even close to decent.
Loved the origina, and the sequel did not disappoint. Wonderful special effects and great to see Harrison Ford back. Ryan Gosling did an awesome job!
Volume is so low that I cannot hear what the actors are saying. Other iTunes rentals have normal sound volume. I might need to get a refund
Great story and the best cinematography I’ve seen in a long time. A fearless director.
Horrible. Just. Horrible. Didn’t even come close to expectations. It was all over the place. Worst movie choice we’ve ever made.
I’ve been excited about this move since rumors of its existence. Although some may find the story to be slow, this was well thought out and artistic is a beautiful way. I was immersed in the story telling and path which it was woven.
If you're a fan of the original, you'll find elements in this that stay true to the original. As risky as it is to make a sequel after so many years. I think this is a worthy sequel..
Slow, confusing, but has some good action, and film editing. No regrets.
Boring. Slow. Disjointed. Robots procreating and it is some big secret???? Makes no sense (unless you're a moron and logic is of no importance).
Enjoyed it! Has similar look and feel to the original. Worth purchasing.
