The film's running time is hefty, but its pleasures are deep and satisfying. Villeneuve's direction is brilliant, and if Deakins doesn't win an Oscar for this cinematography, the award has no meaning. See it on the largest screen you can find.

Blade Runner 2049 is one of the best sci-fi films I've seen in a long time, and certainly the equal to the first film.
October 10, 2019
Echoing a bygone era of studio films daring to push boundaries and expectations rather than demurely adhering to them, Blade Runner 2049 is every bit a soliloquy of dread in response to Scott's ballet of violence.

Blade Runner 2049 refines Blade Runner's themes and widens its scope with such immaculate skill and savvy calculation that, ironically, I don't think it could have nearly the same impact as Blade Runner did

Love the sets and trappings, especially of the nightclub with stars from yesteryear, but the film itself is not satisfying and way too long.

Blade Runner 2049 was totally not what I expected. Yes, bits of it are dumb. But bits of it are very good, and some bits of it are positively awesome.

The fact this story is so ridiculously nourishing while still leaving me pondering some really big questions will remain one of cinemas great mysteries.

Blade Runner 2049 is a visual masterpiece, but a drudging descent for the sci-fi genre.
August 30, 2019
A masterpiece pure and simple, Blade Runner 2049 does not disappoint and will keep hardcore fans and newcomers alike equally happy with what they're seeing.

The slow, deliberate, and well thought out, spending most of its time on drawing questions out of the audience than making an action-filled juggernaut. [February 1, 2018]

BLADE RUNNER 2049 certainly looks the part but beyond the surface it is nothing more than a pale replicant of the real thing.
August 8, 2019
Its aesthetic is so outstanding that you can spend 160 minutes nailed to the chair. [Full Review in Spanish]

To call Blade Runner 2049 a satisfying experience would be an understatement.
July 26, 2019
A film that is thematically complex and visually astounding.
July 21, 2019
Is Blade Runner 2049 a masterpiece like its predecessor? Definitely not. It's not even a match for 2016's superb Arrival, the previous film from director Denis Villeneuve. Yet on its own terms, it's a dazzling achievement.
July 20, 2019
By syncing so many moving parts into a seamless, spellbinding whole, Blade Runner 2049 is both heady speculative fiction and action thriller at its finest.
June 25, 2019
All told, this feels like the best-case scenario for a sequel three-plus decades in the making: it is a glorious visual evolution of its predecessor that retains only the tones and themes it needs.
June 6, 2019
It does the unthinkable: takes one of the most popular cult films of all time and actually makes a sequel worthy of its name.
June 4, 2019
Villeneuve wisely takes the themes of Scott's Blade Runner and explores them from a new angle, while maintaining fidelity to the world built by its now classic predecessor.
June 3, 2019
A beautiful science fiction epic that doesn't necessarily play like a sequel. A technical masterpiece. [Full review in Spanish].
