In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.Written by

Ultimately Denis Villeneuve says he signed on "because I feel that I can do it," and expanded a bit on how he'd be approaching the sequel: "It's a huge challenge, because you don't want to cut and paste, otherwise there's no point. And at the same time you have to respect what was done, so you have to find the right equilibrium between being faithful to the first one and bringing something new at the same time that will make sense to the 'Blade Runner' universe."

While exploring the abandoned casino, K gives a casual one-handed spin to a roulette wheel. We never see the ball and various theories purport that it is not possible to launch the ball.
It is fully possible to pick up a ball sitting in the part of the wheel we cannot see due to the camera angle, and roll it and give the wheel a spin in one motion. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

As a fan of Blade Runner I was both looking forward to this and dreading it.
Could it be good? Sequels always suck. Just look at Star Wars or Transformers or The hangover. then again, there are a couple of good ones like Godfather or Kill Bill.
This film is beautiful. The scenes, the gloom, the wastelands are all very well done. The holograms and sets are amazing. The women are hot. As a man seeing women so thin, so beautiful, flaunting their bodies in short skirts makes me feel alive. Harrison Ford still has it and can be intense. I also love the dog!
With that said, the story seems unneeded. There is no reason for it really. Importantly, some of the dialogue seemed trite. I want to ask some question?? Hmm... not so impressive.
Finally, I am scared because they left the door open for another sequel. Gosh man, just end it. I love Blade Runner, but don't make Hangover III again.
