Original movie in 1982 was incredibly beautiful philosophical statement on the theme of the novel of Philip dick’s “do androids Dream elektroauto?”. For me personally, “blade Runner” became the standard fantastic neo-Noir. Great visuals, interesting characters played by good actors and exciting plot. Unfortunately, with all the advantages of film, I can’t say that it will appeal to everyone. The slow pace of the narrative, savoring each frame will not all. Still, this iconic pattern, which has left an indelible mark in the history of cinema.
The sequel, to my surprise, were not worse. But not the best. “Blade runner 2049” repeats the exact formula of the original. All that I have written about the original film applicable to the sequel. Denis Villeneuve was able to pull off the perfect sequel, which takes not only the advantages of the first film, but also disadvantages. The main difference between these two pictures is the main character. Ryan Gosling is much inferior to Harrison Ford. And it’s not even the actors, and interesting characters. I don’t want to say that “To” completely failed, but could be better.
Like the first film, “blade Runner 2049” is not for everyone. I understand those people who he did not like and to which I am not. In my opinion, the new film by Denis Villeneuve is one of the best this year and a worthy sequel to the cult film of the last century.
