These short films describes some of what happened in between 20. People are desperate and lost, law enforcement can barely keep anything together, and only a small spark can set of total disaster, which is looming just around every corner.
Watching them makes it slightly easier to understand some of the things going on. Niander Wallace has taken over Tyrell Corp and has by the time 2049 takes place designed millions of obedient replicants that does exactly what he tells them to do.
And of course he also uses replicants to do his "dirty work".
In 2049 we meet his right hand "girl" Luv (Brilliantly played by Sylvia Hoeks, if there is one actor in this movie that steal the show, it's her).
You don't have to see the original Blade Runner first, though i do recommend it, see the final cut.
BR2049 has some of the most gorgeous visuals i have ever seen, and the cinematography is out of this world, there is literally no excuse not to give Roger Deakins the Oscar this time.
9.7/10 - Masterpiece And BTW Villeneuve's next movie might be Dune, imagine if he brings Deakins and the rest of this team to make that movie.
It's one of those rare films who dares to challenge the audience, and by doing so, taking a huge risk, and a 155 million dollar risk at that.
I have seen this film three times in the cinema, in 3D, 2D and 4DX.
And one of the things i have noticed with this film, is that it's not the time in the cinema that takes up my time, It's the hours upon hours in between spent thinking about the film, that is the real time consumer.
This film is very much like a painting, every stroke of the brush matters, and every little detail is carefully crafted, it takes monumental skills to pull it of.
I loved this film, it's the best film I've seen all year, It is a must see, a monumental triumph of a film that's just as good (possibly even better) as the original and one of the best sequels of all time!
