Trivia

The text of the baseline that K must recite ("And blood-black nothingness began to spin / A system of cells interlinked within / Cells interlinked within cells interlinked / Within one stem. And dreadfully distinct/ Against the dark, a tall white fountain played") is from Vladimir Nabokov's "Pale Fire" (lines 703-707 of the poem), the novel that Joi volunteers to read to K. The passage goes on to describe how "the mind / Of any man is quick to recognize / Natural shams . . . The reed becomes a bird, the knobby twig / An inchworm . . . ". Recognizing "natural shams" is of course an apt description of a Blade Runner's job. See more »

Goofs

When Joi is giving K the name "Joe", K yells "No" at her and it can be seen that her hair gets blown a bit from his breath when yelling. A gust of breath like that would have no effect on her as she is a hologram. See more »

A masterpiece of science fiction and possibly one of the greatest sequels ever made
5 October 2017 | by MrDHWongSee all my reviews

Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) and once again based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, it successfully recaptures just about everything excellent about the original and is a superb sequel to one of the greatest and most important science fiction films of all time.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling) works as a Blade Runner, retiring old rogue replicants (artificial humans) hiding out around the Los Angeles area. One day while on a job, K discovers a long buried secret in the yard of a replicant which leads him on a journey to track down former Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for decades.

Featuring amazing visuals and some of the most philosophical and thought-provoking themes since the original, Blade Runner 2049 is a masterpiece of science fiction and is possibly one of the greatest sequels ever made. I was transfixed the entire time, to the point where I felt that even blinking would cause me to miss something I wanted to see. The cast was brilliant as well, especially Ryan Gosling, who does a fantastic job carrying the film as its lead actor. However, perhaps best of all, is that seeing the original is not a requirement to fully understand everything that is going on, although it would probably still help to have done so beforehand. I'm almost certain that author Philip K. Dick would be proud of this film. I know I am.

I rate it a very high 9.5/10
