This movie is utterly fantastic from the acting performances of the entire cast, the gritty plot, amazing world building, state of the art special effects, and beautiful cinematography. I have to admit, I was not the biggest fan of the original Blade Runner, but Blade Runner 2049 has quickly become one of my all time favorite films. There are very few flaws in my opinion this perfect film. Definitely worth watching multiple times.
Vince Gilligan has done such a terrific job creating this Breaking Bad universe with complex characters and amazing story arcs. He has taken episodes about very minute changes and is able to create a terrific story. This is no better seen than in El Camino. The movie is about Jesse Pinkman trying to start a new life and escape. The things that happen along the way are gripping and intense, yet never overly in your face. I'll admit there is one huge explosion, but couldn't be more different than one in a Michael Bay film. Aaron Paul continues his terrace acting as Jesse, leaving right were he left off. While Breaking Bad had almost as great of an ending for a TV series as one can have El Camino never at one point seemed forced or unnecessary. The story fit well into the timeline, drawing back all the Breaking Bad favorites. Vince did a great job of not jut advancing the story, but also had great flashbacks that aided the plot in addition to adding nostalgia.
A decent movie that was entertaining, but had a multitude of flaws. So many of the plot points like the pen got so much attention to in the end be meaningless. Any attempt at dark macho comedy was a miss. A lot of twists and turns weren't needed and in the end all the added plot points were very anti-climatic. For being a movie set to be action packed based on the characters, actors, and plot there was only one really true fight scene. This movie could be considered very much a tease.
This movie did not disappoint. I came in expecting a terrible raunchy comedy and that is just what I got. I'm still amazed at how Emma Stone was able to movies like this and then progress into an award winning actress. There were plot holes everywhere, and not a ton of scene that were belly rumblers. The acting wasn't great and neither were the cliche characters and gags. It is a great mind numbing film if you're just looking to not challenge the mind and relax.
From a crowded field of American films about a Russian spy Anna separates itself not in a good way. There are a lot of things to harp on this movie for.
1) For a movie about a badass girl they sure did make Anna more of an object that has sex with any man that helps her. Her entire character development was questionable and stagnant.
2) Despite a surprisingly decent performance from Sasha Luss it was not the best of performances for a lot of the other cast including Cillian Murphy. Like the majority of bad performances it can be attributed to stagnant and poor scripts. An exception was Helen Mirren with who I didn't realize was in the movie till afterwards.
3) In addition, while there is a correct way to create a non-linear timeline, Anna did not.
4) The climax and ensuing plot line afterwards could have been remade 1000 different ways and each would have been better.
5) The music was a stereotypical cheesy low-grade spy score.
In conclusion I think the lesson that should preached throughout Hollywood is that they should leave Russian spy movies to Russians.
However much I feel the film could have been improved upon, I was still entertained.
