There's a sequence late in Denis Villeneuve'sBlade Runner 2049 when Ryan Gosling is wandering through a vintage casino, and he comes upon a hologram Elvis in the showroom.
The film's butt-numbing running time need not be a worry - it flies by - and with a superb performance from Gosling, who is in almost every frame, a returning Ford, who is better than he has been for years, as well as a stunning supporting cast made up of the likes of Robin Wright (House Of Cards), Dave Bautista (WWE, Guardians Of The Galaxy) and a post-Joker Jared Leto (who is sinister and delicious), this epic, visually stunning marvel could just be one of the best sequels ever made - one that definitely surpasses the quality of its breath-taking original.
At one point, Gosling even stepped away since he figured his presence might be better used to help run the cameras. The 1982 original was a film that didn't exactly do so hot at the box office, and it only achieved classic status years later with the release of the Director's Cut in 1992. He is tasked with taking out 4 replicants who have gone rogue. 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?"
We'd tell you more, but we're not looking to get "retired" anytime soon. It has a mostly linear plotline with only occasional tangents into abstract concepts, so it's much easier to follow. Dennis Gassner's production design complements the iconic rainy metropolis with snowy, wintery cityscapes and barren deserts, and each of them is just comically well-photographed by cinematographer Roger Deakins; frame after frame is simply jaw-dropping. Their Los Angeles of 2049 is dark, moody, and full of weather (like rain and snow) foreign to the city as we know it.
"This one was more civilized, just slightly more civilized".
Unfortunately, the movie is filled to the brim with plot, which leads to an unwieldy running time of 163 minutes. As the title suggests, it's been 30 years since the events of the original film, and Deckard, a former Blade Runner, a law enforcement hunter of replicants, has vanished. It starts to drag about two hours in, leading to a final act that's far less exciting than it should be.
If K were to achieve that higher level of awareness, he would most certainly find himself face-to-face with Blade Runner 2049 director Villeneuve, a fast-rising visionary of cinema. Whether that translates into the same enduring popularity remains to be seen.
