‘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.
