BladeRunner 2049 2017 9+ out of 10
The sets in this film are amazing. Every set piece is like a work of art. The visuals and music set the mood that puts you right back into the Bladerunner world. This picture takes place about 30 years after the original and features a Replicant named K (played by Ryan Gosling) that is tasked to hunt down older model Replicants. On one of his missions he stumbles upon a mystery that leads him down a dangerous rabbit hole. Like the original this film is sci-fi noir set amongst the rainy underworld that is Los Angeles in the future. The film seamlessly blends into what you would expect the extension of the Bladerunner world would look and feel like. The story consists of a satisfying mystery that ties in with the events of the first film that eventually leads the Bladerunner to find Deckard (played by Harrison Ford). Of course this happens late in the films 2 hours and 45 minute running time. My only complaint that I wish we had more time with Harrison’s character.
