Love the sets and trappings, especially of the nightclub with stars from yesteryear, but the film itself is not satisfying and way too long.

BLADE RUNNER 2049 certainly looks the part but beyond the surface it is nothing more than a pale replicant of the real thing.

Women are aggressively objectified for the male gaze, while people of color are simply erased.

Any follow-up to Ridley Scott's Blade Runner was going to be an uphill struggle.

Perhaps Blade Runner 2049's biggest flaw is style over substance. Check it out for the beautiful look, but be careful diving below the surface.
August 22, 2018
Sadly, although the film has all the markings of a great sequel, it lacks any passion or sentiment for most of the story.
August 20, 2018
Small miracles do exist in Blade Runner 2049, but the organic beauty and possibility they represent gets buried beneath ponderous ruminations and plot twists ripped from the pantheon of generic science fiction.

The failure of "Blade Runner 2049" is how it discriminates between men and women, and how that discrimination surpasses the distinction between human and machine. That failure leaves you with no hope for the future.

Gen X was the original audience for Blade Runner, but this film is an insult to it, or maybe just an unnecessary recapitulation of how things are for that generation.

[VIDEO ESSAY] All spectacle and no substance describes Denis Villeneuve's predictably overwrought yet lightweight sci-fi snoozefest.
January 15, 2018
Blade Runner 2049 boasts impeccable direction and marvelous camerawork, on top of astonishing production design, visual effects, and music. However, when it comes to the film's thinly-stretched story, it leaves something to be desired.

It seems designed to watch itself even if no one showed up, like a rotating hall of mirrors. The film doesn't need us.
November 18, 2017
Boring with spasms of viciousness: whee.
November 15, 2017
A visually-striking yet often ineffective sequel...
November 9, 2017
My immediate wish was for a shorter, more exciting film.
October 30, 2017
In the end, for all its pleasures, it's difficult to view Blade Runner 2049 as anything but an elaborate echo of the original, neither true sequel nor reboot, unclear of its own identity.
October 27, 2017
This movie is obsessed with the idea of women, and I don't mean that in a good way.
October 23, 2017
Why do producers spend millions on stars and special effects and forget to hire writers?
October 19, 2017
Director Denis Villeneuve is the modern master of empty, thundering portent, and the dystopic future cinematic universe of Blade Runner gives him a gigantic space to practice his darkly didactic arts.
