About this movie

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

A vastly disappointing movie that does nothing new for science fiction. Whereas the original film featured a dirty and believable dystopia that felt very real, the sequel utterly fails to deliver any atmosphere or reality in its scenes or settings. The entirety of the film is a tired old detective story told in an overly convoluted way through an over reliance on CGI. The end result is a boring mess that feels less like Blade Runner and more like three actors in front of a green screen. It's overly animated, poorly told and an overall massive disappointment. The entirety of the movie feels victimized by a director with a shot-over-content mentality, animating vast vistas and unique visions with nothing to them. Blade Runner 2049 looks spectacular, but in the same way a Snyder film does. Scratch the surface of this forgettable mess of a film and you'll quickly hit rock bottom. An absolute waste of time for anyone except dire-hard visual artists who can ignore the limping narrative to enjoy the pretty pretty colors.

Фильм очень глубокий, и говорит он о правильных вещах, только понять это может далеко не каждый. Персонажи прописаны хорошо, сюжет на уровне (хотя никаких открытий ждать не стоит), ну а картинка просто шикарна, такой красоты в фильмах я ещё не видел. Развитие идей первого "Бегущего по лезвию" идет в правильном направлении, и он определенно войдет в историю кино, как это сделала первая часть.

A movie filled with atmosphere, you are left to linger in a world falling apart at the seams, with humans clinging onto a dying earth while questioning what it is to be human. The pace of the movie allows you to soak up the existential dread of what could be, and what or who we are. This movie is not for people who would want easy quick answers, nor for those who want resolutions. But if you enjoy being entralled by a fully realised universe with a culture all of its own, and beautiful, if dystopian scenery and a solid story behind it, then I whole heartedly recommend this movie. It is a worthy entry to the Blade Runner universe.
