    As a fan of Blade Runner, I am pleased that this world appears to be in good hands. I desperately look for thoughtful, tense and engaging films that seem to be wholly missing from many modern productions. Terminator, Alien, even Star Trek have benefitted AND suffered both under the new aspects of modern filmmaking. Most contemporary films suffer from over-stuffed effects and NASCAR pacing. Blow something up and do it fast. I think I will enjoy a film that goes slow enough to be visually effective, thematically rich, and character empowered.

    So glad to see this review posted. I’ve been avoiding any trailers or even any thoughts about seeing the film until I heard from BP. Bladerunner is a sacred film for me.

    I’ll probably see it now though. I was so worried (like the rest of us) that this would be another cash-grab 80’s reboot, but you’ve put those fears to rest. I’m particularly excited about the slow pacing of Bladerunner 2049 because too many modern blockbusters move the plot along at a breakneck pace.

    Todd Vanderwerff described K’s role as first appearing to be a Campbellian cliche only to shift into a more noir archetype:

    I thoroughly enjoyed Blade Runner 2049. It’s length felt meditative, invoking Tarkovsky. I have been likening it to an experienc; more than just watching a film.
