Goofs

(at around 1h 40 mins) We see a number of bee hives and agent K's hand covered with bees. However the area is devastated, there is no sign of other life and certainly no flowers from which the bees can harvest nectar. However, several assemblies with round discs are shown to be where the bees harvest, next to the cases of bees where they live. So they must have found ways to have bees harvest off something that is not a flower. Additionally, most of the animal life seen in the Blade Runner universe is artificial. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
'K': I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

Alternate Versions

The IMAX print viewed by Turkish film critics at the movie's press screening in two days advance of its Turkish theatrical release censors nudity by digital zooming. Since the movie had not yet been classified by Turkish censors at the time of the press screening, this intervention appears to have been carried out by Sony Pictures for the Turkish market, as well as for some non-Western markets in general.

Great visuals but ...............
11 October 2017 | by guylyonsntlworldcomSee all my reviews

Plenty of raving reviews, but I do not agree with the masterpiece verdict by many reviewers. The original was complex, but yet simple to understand, and as the plot unfolds, the story engages you through the film. This sequel looks fantastic , and the performances are great, yet something is missing. A straight forward plot, with a flowing script would have a made a huge difference. Sitting through 150 minutes of drama, yet struggling to make sense of it, seems to me that the maker failed in the business of screen story telling. I was disappointed and found the first film so much better than this big budget fare. Dalton trumbo please help us as today's science fiction big budget films are in the main failing to be anything like as entertaining as they should be. Better script writers & screen story tellers are so important,yet it seems that simplicity is being substituted by muddled messy big budget effects, all for the sake of being so much cleverer than the dumb audience. Alfred Hitchcock knew how to make a film, a pity a few of these over hyped directors, don't have a rethink on what it takes to entertain an audience . I am more than ever mistrusting so called master reviewers !!!!
