Director: Denis Villeneuve
Plot Summary: A young blade runner’s discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who’s been missing for thirty years. (IMDb)

Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, happens upon the remains of a female replicant who died during a caesarean section, demonstrating that replicants can reproduce – previously thought impossible. Competing sides attempt to find the replicant child, which could spell chaos for the world.

The first thing I have to write about is the cinematography. It was absolutely exceptional. It is no surprise that Roger Deakins won an Oscar for his work in this film. I was blown away by the visuals. I have nothing but praise for this aspect of the film – there aren’t words eloquent enough to describe how incredible a job Deakins has done.

The narrative is interesting – it ebbs and flows – and it fits perfectly with every other aspect that has gone into the making of this spectacle of a film. I was never bored throughout – Gosling gives a good performance as the main lead: he is very convincing as a replicant blade runner and does the role justice as he follows in the footsteps of Ford.

Everything about the film fitted well together – the story, the supporting characters and the continuity. I actually preferred Blade Runner 2049 to the original.

  1. I couldn’t agree more with you about the visuals. I think I paid more attention to the cinematography than I did the story in the end hahaha. I was wary of this film to start, but when I finished it I could see why everyone kept raving about it.
