Facebook Live Review: ‘Blade Runner 2049’

‘Blade Runner 2049’ hits theaters this week, and like the original film, the sequel is a mixed bag of emotions and questions.

Visually, Director Denis Villeneuve understands the ‘Blade Runner’ universe and creates a worthy film to expand the mythos Ridley Scott established. Unlike most sequels, ‘2049’ can stand on its own.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ has a great cast, and Ryan Gosling continues to impress with his stoic presence. Gosling doesn’t say a lot, but you understand his every move. Jared Leto’s character and performance was a letdown. You never felt the crazy with Leto.

Check out our Facebook Live Review for more details:

‘Blade Runner 2049’ is a strange film as it will hit a home run with its core audience but may misfire in the mainstream.

After you see the movie, come back and comment below with your review.


About the film:
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ hits theaters October 6.
