Perhaps Blade Runner 2049's biggest flaw is style over substance. Check it out for the beautiful look, but be careful diving below the surface.

It's a stunning movie, it's epic, with an epic soundtrack.

Villeneuve is easily up there with my favorite directors now.
August 28, 2018
It's a movie with large spaces that gives us room, both physically and temporally, to let experiences sink in, to enjoy character moments, to worry about danger, and to appreciate nods (large and small) to the earlier film.

... it's great to see a director and his crew being given the freedom to be eccentric, contemplative, and create a film that doesn't leave you when you exit the dark hall.

Wallace's desire and K's secret are, of course, connected, because in this gorgeous new Blade Runner, the narrative slots neatly together in a way that's tidy but unsatisfying.
August 27, 2018
Directed by Arrival maestro Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 is a film that, like all of us-human and replicant alike- actively wrestles with its own existence.

Blade Runner 2049 is all experience, sound and rain, but that may be fitting for an age defined by artificial living, electric dreams and lonely desires.

Find you an android lover, curl up to a nice movie.

It is a startling reminder that even in today's cinema, where CGI spectacles are commonplace, big budget films can produce remarkable works of art.
August 22, 2018
Sadly, although the film has all the markings of a great sequel, it lacks any passion or sentiment for most of the story.

Look elsewhere for your fix, action junkies, and don't judge "2049" for what it isn't.
August 20, 2018
Small miracles do exist in Blade Runner 2049, but the organic beauty and possibility they represent gets buried beneath ponderous ruminations and plot twists ripped from the pantheon of generic science fiction.

Denis Villeneuve, the director of "Arrival" (2016) and "Sicario" (2015) is undoubtedly an extraordinary storyteller, and the multidimensional tale of the new "Blade Runner" is no exception. [Full review in Spanish]

Gen X was the original audience for Blade Runner, but this film is an insult to it, or maybe just an unnecessary recapitulation of how things are for that generation.
March 8, 2018
If every new film made today is to a greater or lesser degree an echo box of past possibilities, what's notable is how much Villeneuve gives those echoes room to breathe and to be new.
February 20, 2018
This movie is visually stunning. It is so beautiful. Every single shot in this movie feels like a work of art.
February 9, 2018
It's a very self aware continuation, but not a complete replicant.

[VIDEO ESSAY] All spectacle and no substance describes Denis Villeneuve's predictably overwrought yet lightweight sci-fi snoozefest.

Like its predecessor, Blade Runner 2049 is often difficult to enjoy as traditional entertainment yet impossible not to marvel at. And its merit will no doubt be debated for years to come.
