BladeRunner 2049

Having seen this one on the small screen I'm not sure what to make of it. But then the original Bladerunner, with its melencholy moods, wasn't exactly emotionally fullfilling. Not that a movie needs to be.



This new chapter may base itself in the world imagined by writer Philip Kindred Dick. Yet it is the creation of another writer with good intentions wanting to extrapolate that world something like a generation or two later. There is plausibility within the confines established by the original script. It plays like a police procedural on the one side, and with evil corporate baddies that provide the interference and struggle.

All in all I enjoyed it even if my glass remains neither half empty nor half full. It is a bleak world from which this movie comes. It always was bleak and continues to be.

The movie does seem to redeem itself with more than one viewing. It is rich in its descriptions and depictions. At 2hrs 44 minutes this movie takes its time to fold out its chapters. The production values are high. The CGI is good, perhaps really good in that it may not be possible to always differentiate between what is and what isn't CGI in many scenes.

So sad about Rachel.
