In a distant and not-far-away dystopian future, human race has been replaced by replicants and controlled by an enterprise who integrated them into society as servants and slaves. Should there be replicants violating the ‘government’, they will be hunted down by blade runners who work for the LAPD. Parts of Blade Runner will remind you of Westworld.
Seems like a totally bat-shit movie that is a sequel from the original Blade Runner released 35-years ago. Blade Runner 2049 has a strong foundation to back it up but movie audience tend to have mixed reactions and some are just lazy to appreciate it. Why? Some audience may find the story too slow, dragging, and doesn’t have too much action scenes.
On the contrary, it was a great movie if some of the moviegoers will see right into it. Ryan Gosling played his role as Agent K effectively and Robin Wright as his commanding chief also gave a suave character attack on Lt. Joshi. Yes, it was Harrison Ford’s return as Deckard made the movie more interesting. But to be honest, Blade Runner 2049 can do away without Deckard.
The real surprise in this movie are Dave Bautista and Jared Leto. Dave as Sapper Morton brought ‘human touch’ in this replicant-living world. Sapper, a rogue older replicant, believed in something which is already taboo in this futuristic world, to reproduce life.
On the other hand, Jared is Niander Wallace, who is the head of Wallace Corporation who basically ‘owns’ this new world, needs this ‘proof’ in order to bolster his production. Agent K was caught in-between protecting and destroying this ‘proof’ until he met Deckard. Was Deckard that important to bring him back in this sequel? Not at all. Deckard’s only ties is his long-lost daughter, who Agent K taught for a while that he was the child of Deckard.
Cut the story short, Agent K was seen slumped into an icy stair leading to a building where Deckard meets his daughter by the end of the film.
So how do we rate Blade Runner 2049? It’s an 8/10.
We saw Blade Runner 2049 via IMAX at The SM North EDSA and thank goodness for the big screen. We really appreciated all the scenes and surprisingly, the 3D glasses and screen complemented each other with its brightness perfect for this kind of film.
