- This sequel to Ridley Scott's landmark 1982 science-fiction film picks up the story 30 years later, giving viewers another detailed look at a future in which humanity live in polluted, overcrowded cities and rely on androids known as "replicants" for slave labor. In 2049 Los Angeles, K (Ryan Gosling) works as a "blade runner," a specialized law-enforcement agent dedicated to tracking down and killing rogue replicants. But when he uncovers a shocking conspiracy involving the robot laborers, he searches for the one person who might have answers: a former blade runner named Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who vanished decades earlier. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (ARRIVAL, SICARIO). Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto co-star.

This will be remembered as one of the greatest films ever made my mankind.
I really do struggle to find the words to describe what I felt while watching this film, but it was transportive, imaginative, thrilling and masterfully composed.
All that said, I can also imagine it being received negatively by many people.
Really though, purchase this film and see it for yourself. It had blown me away.

Ryan Gosling give a terrific performance in this intriguing detective mystery story. This movie builds on everything on introduced in the original and keeps you nailed to the screen for its entire almost 3 hour runtime.
The world building is also spectacular, and Roger Deakins deservedly won an Academy Award for his cinematography for this film.
Go see it.
A stylish sequel that does not disrespect the original classic

So I was very excited for the sequel and had high expectations.
Well, I wasn't disappointed.
Since it's a detective story, I will not give any spoilers.
Denis Villeneuve has done an excellent job directing, with Ryan Gosling delivering a good performance.
Whereas the original film had a bustling mood, I found this film more desolate.
I was rather disappointed that Vangelis didn't provide the soundtrack again, but Hans Zimmer is good.
Roger Deakins provides gorgeous cinematography, as always.
I highly recommend this movie, but first watch the original to get the many references to it.
