BLADE RUN­NER 2049 (15)

Re­leased: Oc­to­ber

Strathearn Herald - - THE TICKET -

This 35 years in the mak­ing se­quel was that rarest of beasts; a fol­low-up that sur­passed the orig­i­nal. One of the big­gest cin­e­matic tragedies of the year is the poor box of­fice tak­ings for this weighty, brain-test­ing sci-fi. De­nis Vil­leneuve de­liv­ers in spades be­hind the cam­era and Ryan Gosling shines in a de­mand­ing role.

Har­ri­son Ford adds old-school charisma and Sylvia Hoeks’ re­lent­less en­forcer makes for a chill­ing vil­lain­ess. The score is haunting and hyp­notic and vast land­scapes lend the film a grandiose scale.
