Review:

If you’re a fan of the original Blade Runner, you may be sceptical of 2049. Making this film decades after the first film might seem like a cash grab… but you’re in for a surprise.

Blade Runner 2049 not only manages to match the first movie, but arguably surpasses it. Following the story of a replicant blade runner named K, Blade Runner 2049 has the intelligence of its predecessor, a phenomenal lead in Ryan Gosling, and the most beautiful cinematography of the year. Cinematographer Roger Deacons manages to outdo the first Blade Runner, which is not an easy feat.

Reintroducing the character of Rick Deckard, still portrayed by Harrison Ford, 2049 intertwines with the first film while still remaining its own clear story. Whether you saw Blade Runner a day ago or a year ago, 2049 will feel fresh and mesmerising for fans and newcomers alike.
