Blade Runner 2049 (15)

Sci-Fi, Thriller

A young blade runner's discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who's been missing for thirty years.

The critical consensus

As bold as the original Blade Runner and even more beautiful (especially if you see it in IMAX). Visually immaculate, swirling with themes as heart-rending as they are mind-twisting, 2049 is, without doubt, a good year. And one of 2017’s best.

*****Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 29/09/2017

An exquisitely crafted sequel that stands shoulder to shoulder with one of the greatest films ever made. Everyone involved is operating at the height of their powers.

*****Jordan Farley, Total Film, 29/09/2017

Ryan Gosling plays an LAPD officer heading for an encounter with Harrison Ford’s Deckard in a film whose sheer scale leaves you hyperventilating.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 29/09/2017

Like The Godfather Part II, it’s a sequel to a very celebrated film which may actually be better than the original.

*****Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 29/09/2017

An expert blend of the familiar and the new, Blade Runner 2049 is nothing short of a triumph.

*****Nikki Baughan, The List, 03/10/2017

A big disappointment. All the pretty vistas in the world can’t enliven this protracted futuro-slog.

**(*)(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 03/10/2017

Denis Villeneuve’s follow-up to Ridley Scott’s iconic Blade Runner is visually dazzling with the ideas, plot and performances to match.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 05/10/2017

The stunning images are matched by a story full of mystery, madness and outstanding performances from Gosling and Ford. Could this be that rare sequel that eclipses the original?

*****Charlotte Heathcote, Daily Express, 06/10/2017

The sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic manages to be both visually stunning and philosophically profound.
