Blade Runner 2049

{4.5/5} “I know what’s real.”

Blade Runner 2049, released in 2017

It’s been 30 years since Deckard and Rachel left Los Angeles. K, a blade runner who knows he’s a replicant, is still hunting down illegal replicants. But then he finds out that a replicant has had a child — and everyone is very interested in that. K’s boss wants the child dead and the successor to the Tyrell corporation wants it for themselves.

I applaud the filmmakers for doing something out of the ordinary. I liked it but I didn’t love it. But Blade Runner fans will want to see it to find out what happens with our old friend Deckard.

They did a fine job of transporting us back into the world of Blade Runner.

Like the original, we’re left with a certain amount of mystery.

The visuals are stunning, although some of the interiors felt a bit over the top.

The sound mix was shockingly bad. The low rumbling got annoying very quickly.

Although Harrison Ford is in the movie, he’s not in it as much as you might like.

Stars Ryan Gosling and Robin Wright. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival). The mysterious music is by Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer.

    There are 3 short films that take place between “Blade Runner” and “Blade Runner 2049.” They illuminate various aspects of the world… but they’re short.
