Blade Runner 2049 (2017) - A visual gem and a long awaited sequel



"Blade Runner 2049" is the sequel to the original "Blade Runner" which was based on Philip K. Dick's sci-fi short story "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"


Director Denis Villeneuve follows up Ridley Scott's sci-fi masterpiece with a fantastic visual neo-noir. Cinematographer Roger Deakins won an Oscar for his brilliant camera work and Villeneuve keeps the mystique of the original alive and well.


Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and Ana de Armas give pitch perfect performances. Ford, reprising his role as Deckard, a retired blade runner, holds answers to the long running mysteries of the original and is the person of interest Gosling's "K" seeks out.


Once Gosling and Ford finally meet on screen, the film holds two iconic actors - one of each generation and we are in for a treat.
