Blade Runner 2049 honors original and opens up new territory

Ana de Armas’s inevitable look Ana de Armas’s inevitable look

What can be said is that the film is more straightforward than the original. It's surprising when watching the film to notice just how much of it was shot on actual sets, something director Villeneuve adamantly requested before production.

Blade Runner 2049 doesn't really look or feel like Ridley Scott's original, and that's wise - people have been ripping it off for years, usually poorly. Fans have argued whether or not Ford's Deckard is himself a replicant; a controversy which has been fuelled over the years by the release of different cuts, which emphasise subtly different elements of the story. But, because his belief that one of them was wrongfully charged with the crime the assignment did not end well.

Truth be told, the original Blade Runner has always been a little out of reach for me.

So K is an officer whose mission is to find Rick. "I feel like that's what we were all striving for towards the beginning of the process".

The acting of the central characters blends nicely to the first film and with only slightly modified details needed to bring you up to date. But if you've seen much of Ryan Gosling's two appearances as host on "Saturday Night Live", you know that - although he often plays very serious characters - he's pretty fond of laughing.

The goofiness builds from there, and, at one point, Gosling, feigning frustration over Hammond's attention to Ford, exits the interview with an offer to help the camera crew instead.

According to the media review website, RottenTomatoes.com, 99 percent of users want to see "Blade Runner 2049".

It's hard to write about Blade Runner 2049 without spoiling anything-but I can reveal that the movie's central narrative follows a blade runner named K (Ryan Gosling). You wouldn't think he was in his 70's the way he fights off adversaries in some dicey situations.

Blade Runner 2049 is released in United Kingdom cinemas on October 5th, 2017. While the film certainly is action packed and full of surprises, it's not for those who can only sit through an average length of action fantasy before getting antsy.

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". The film also stars Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, and Lennie James.
