'Blade Runner 2049' review: A worthy follow-up to a sci-fi classic

But that Elvis simulation is a striking metaphor for what the audience of BR2049 may be expecting - a careful recreation of a beloved pop culture artifact, one that's acquired the protective coating of "classic" in the many years since its initial, somewhat disreputable appearance. Blade Runner scribe Hampton Fancher and Michael Green (Logan) penned the screenplay. However, those individuals might understandably find themselves a little bit disappointed to discover that no - Blade Runner 2049 has no mid or post-credits stingers. The final product is a blend of modern sounds and vintage synthesizers, paying tribute to Vangelis' original (brilliant) compositions while also breaking new ground. But even more so, the original didn't exactly end with a concrete point to spawn a sequel or series.

The film's great addition is Ryan Gosling as the new Blade Runner. Even the two writers said the other had the credit for the "correct" answer.

Less impressive is Niander Wallace, the new villain played by Jared Leto, who appears exclusively to give big, scenery-chewing bad guy speeches (though his right-hand woman, played by relative newcomer Sylvia Hoeks, makes a stronger impression).

K heads off to investigate Morton and, along the way, stumbles upon something more: the revelation that former blade runner Deckard is still alive and living in seclusion in the wasteland of the Las Vegas desert.

The ever-reliable Gosling ("La La Land", "Blue Valentine") is, as you'd expect, quite good here. When Hammond asks Ford, "When you got that call [that said], 'Listen, we're making another Blade Runner and we want you to be in it, ' what was your reaction?"

Denis Villeneuve said: "Like many fans, I remember the Johnnie Walker bottle from the first film, so it was a unique privilege to collaborate with Johnnie Walker on designing a totally original, custom bottle for the new movie".

"Additionally, cinematographer Roger Deakins is being singled out for praise, and while he's never won the Oscar despite being nominated 13 times, perhaps this will finally be his year", Goldberg wrote.
