Blade Runner 2049, 2017 film starring Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas and of course Harrison Ford. This is the long awaited sequel to the cult classic Blade Runner from 1982. It’s about a young ‘Blade Runners’ accidental uncovering of a thirty year old secret that leads him to a great discovery and of course, nightmare.
A ‘Blade Runners’ job is to hunt down and kill all replicant’s (cyborg/robot’s) to help rid the earth of them when they became illegal. Agent K’s discovery (Gosling) threatens to undermine all society and all the powers that be try to prevent him from unearthing the full story while the other side thinks he is out to bury it and they try to stop him so the discovery can be made public.
This is a very good story and very well made but you would need to have seen the original in my opinion to know and foresee some of what is happening. I have and will review the original soon. I would give this a 4.5 out of 5 but I only use full stars so this one edges closer to a full 5. A must watch and must own for followers of the original and like that movie, worth watching multiple times.
