As a fan of the original movie from 1982. I was... a younger version of myself. LOL Anyway, I thought it was a magnificent film back then and it's a part of my collection- mostly because it was a really cool story back then. I also had a huge crush on Han Sol- I mean Harrison Ford! So what did I thing of BR2049?
First off, though I loved K and Deckard, I was a total fan of the villainess, Luv. She was freaking awesome! Now that that's out of the way, I can go along with my review.
Next, Blade Runner 2049 was very long. So long, my hubby dozed off a couple of times, but it was very good. I appreciated the storyline, the characters and how it all came back to Deckard. The special effects were totally cool and gave the dystopian, futuristic atmosphere substance. It wasn't filthy and nasty, as with the first movie.
It's about 'KD9-3.7', a Blade Runner, who's discovered a long, lost secret that could lead to a replicant revolution. He's so reliable and duty-bound that it's unlike him to go off in a sort of discovery mode. Due to the many facets of the story, everyone's a suspect and you wonder, just like 'K', who the key to the story really is and who he is.
I appreciated how it began near exact to the first. I also enjoyed the movie in its entirety but it really wasn't necessary. Although, I admit, it was cool to find out what happened to Rachael and Deckard, knowing she had no expiration date. I think the length of the film could have been shortened, AND I could have done without all the womanly things all over the place. What's with them in the future, man?
Anyway, if you're a Blade Runner fan, Blade Runner 2049 will be a fun movie for you. Cheers!
