To be honest, I am not a fan of the film 1982. It looked at the time on the DVD was not particularly impressed overall, but the idea, main characters, atmosphere and some scenes are very liking. After learning that the sequel, decided that if all I like about the original will remain at the same level, and a nice bonus is the beautiful modern picture, what I have no doubt, will have to see it in the cinema. Well, the fact that the film is directed by D. Villeneuve, the belief in a strong and worthy sequel even stronger.
How nice not to be disappointed. The first thing I immediately realized is that the creators of the new paintings have absolute respect for the original, passing in the same spirit, the atmosphere of cyberpunk and dystopia, the slow pace of the narrative. As in the first film, there’s no storm action, since this is a tape of another nature. Although few scenes are present, but they are quite fleeting. But much attention is paid to dialogues, monologues, interaction between the characters. A big thank you to script for it. You also need to note that the creators are not just skillfully confuse the audience, making it clear who is the main character in the beginning, but further sow the seeds of doubts, causing it to lean to one version, then another, then a third. In any case, me.
Very pleased with my wide variety of locations in which events of the film, as well as the interior design of premises. All shows are radically different from each other literally everything, from colors, ending with the weather conditions. This is a godsend for this movie, because it contributes more fully to show the existing on-screen world. In the first film such a variety in my opinion was not.
By cons I would mention the slow pace of some scenes, somewhere more, somewhere less, where too much static, poverty them and nothing would have changed completely. The film, with nothing to lose, could easily fit in 2 hours and 20 minutes.
I also thought that H. Ford’s role is much more influential and significant, but this is not a complaint, just an unjustified expectation. However, perhaps a continuation of the story the ending leaves such a feeling.
I think the film will appeal to fans of the first film, because the creators of the sequel, carefully treated to the original here and the atmosphere and the quiet, unhurried narrative, even the sharp editing and of course, H. Ford. But those who with the old picture do not know or he does not like, may feel new too tedious. But for me, these 2 hours and 45 minutes in the theater flew by quickly enough.
