Technicolor misogyny set in a science fiction noir world.

Maybe 4.5 stars if I watch again more closely to more fully understand the plot and the various secondary characters. As the original "Blade Runner" is considered to be one of the top 100 films of all times, this follow-up film would have had to be a lot better to match the original. Actor Ryan Gosling was quite good at being hard-boiled (as he attempted to suppress his human feelings to prevent his "retirement").

not much of a plot. poorly written. Not well written. In our opinion it is a truly pathetic sequel; it had none of the atmosphere of the original.

A worthy follow up to the original

Not as good as the original; very DARK greys, rain, fog, buildings and only a few seconds of the crowded and colourful LA streets that I enjoyed in the first one. The girlfriend's a hologram, the other 2 actresses are ball-busting bitches, so no great female roles. Pretty creepy, all in all, but I guess that's the effect they wanted.

Fantastic - a masterpiece of mood. Some of the most amazing experiences I have had in theater - flying through the world, the lovely overlay, and on and on. One of the hardest acts to follow - left me totally satisfied... and, in truth, has not left me. Just give it a few minutes of thought and see how real it felt.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve in 2017 as a sequel to the 1982 "Blade Runner" film, this American SF drama depicts the dystopia of 2049.
The screenplay appears poorly (if not badly) contrived for the sake of a sequel simply because the story of the original "Blade Runner" seems to have completed with no more possible episodes.
Since the original Blade Runner appears so good, the sequel lacks impacts and originality with some gratuitous and not-so-fascinating visual effects.

Excellent albeit over-complicated plot nevertheless a compliment to the stunning original Blade Runner. This is the story of Nimrod: the mighty hunter of the creator God-- a story of mere mortals of flawed DNA ascending to the throne of God by creating life. Blade Runner is neo-Genesis. It is not evolution or ascension-- this is a heliocentric model neo-Nazi 4th Reich, vacuum space, earth as spinning ball Sonnenkinder (Children of Sol) neo-Genesis 'reach for the stars'. But for all of that, mankind's best efforts only imitate the creations of the original creator God without touching upon the 'spark of life' or spirit. This movie is dark because it deals with matters seen darkly as through a glass.....a humanoid looking glass. Humanoids incapable of creating spirit or true life yet fully capable of manipulating DNA. Much like modern U.S. DARPA, cottage industry wildcat cloning, or Brien Forester's Hidden Inca Tours Peruvian Antiquities Authority Nephilim DNA 'Block & Ambush' operations-- Blade Runner is never able to satisfy the definition of spirit and life......can you ? Ron Bracey, USAF by A.A.R. confirmed a humanoid clone KILL during POW transfer while on Active U.S. military duty upon Groom Lake of A/O: Areas 51, 52, 53, 54, Indian Springs 'The Holographic Battlefield Shaping' Light Show, thus everything we see in Blade Runner is do-able here and now. Ron's A.A.R. survives by Steve Shermet and Westin Jones, USAF at Tucson's Beth Sar Shalom of 2151 N. Palo Verde near major land mark Alvernon and Grant. Saddle-up and get Blade Runner real-time, warrior. YOU are already in the War Zone and Tucson has KIA, WIA, and MIA. $28.50 @ buys Euro Coach roundtrip Greyhound fare from Tucson to Vegas. POTUS 'YOU ARE FIRED' Trump is in office to make a lawfully political status for A/I robotics and hologram, especially by Las Vegas brothel enterprise. This political chattel status will be inferior to all extant, but shall provide a status heretofore unknown. Will you be the first to come back with Photo Reece ? Will it include Humanoid or human real time EMF Psy 'meeting of the mind' carrier wave one level advanced of telephone Internet sex, hologram with Japanese patent microwave presser beam tactile interface, and will the entire event transpire in a walk-in shower cubicle capable of automatic 'down-the-drain' clean up ? It certainly will not be known as Flush And Forget nor is it quite Blade Runner humanoid, but nevertheless very close...... blade Runner and Blade Runner 2019 is time well spent in U.S. defense primer and as simple entertainment.

Rewatched the first Blade Runner just to get in the mood. Then watching the second Blade Runner got me more depressed mostly due to the darker scenery. At the end the movie left it open for a third Blade Runner where the replicants have become more self aware that they are the next step in human evolution whether the humans like in or not. Things I liked. Flying cars, google like glasses that can activate drones, and of course the replicants that do grunt work for you and don't kill you.

If you don't like to think when you watch movies, you may not like this one.
If you do, get ready for a wild ride.

This film boasts stunning visuals, an amazing score, and thought concepts that will bend your mind, if you give it the time.

"Sometimes to love someone, you got to be a stranger. " - Deckard

Pages of quotes in IMDb including this title card introduction:

Replicants are bioengineered humans, designed by Tyrell Corporation for use off-world. Their enhanced strength made them ideal slave labor. After a series of violent rebellions, their manufacture became prohibited and Tyrell Corp went bankrupt.

The collapse of ecosystems in the mid 2020s led to the rise of industrialist Niander Wallace, whose mastery of synthetic farming averted famine. Wallace acquired the remains of Tyrell Corp and created a new line of replicants who obey. Many older model replicants - Nexus 8s with open-ended lifespans - survived. They are hunted down and 'retired'

Those that hunt them still go by the name... Blade Runner.
