“Blade Runner 2049” is another beautifully shot, yet polarizing sequel.
In fact, its polarizing nature makes it much like its 1982 predecessor, which confused critics and didn’t make much money. But the Harrison Ford-directed sci-fi epic found its audience after many years and many film reshoots – so much so that director Denis Villeneuve got his shot at the world of replicants 35 years later with ” Blade Runner 2049″.
“Blade Runner” and its sequel are set in a future where synthetic humans, called replicants, have been created to work in space colonies – but when a group of fugitive replicants escape to Earth, blade runner Rick Deckard (Ford) is responsible for tracking them down. He discovers, however, that replicants aren’t exactly what he’s been led to believe.
“Blade Runner 2049” picks up 30 years later, focusing on a replicant named K (Ryan Gosling) who is a blade runner himself, and is tasked with finding a baby human replicant and “retiring” it, just in case. where the public would discover it. that replicants can reproduce like humans. It is revealed that the baby’s father is, in fact, Deckard, who has been in hiding for years.
“2049” ended up being as polarizing, thought-provoking, and beautifully shot as the original.
