Blade Runner tells the story in Los Angeles on the year of 2049. During that time, Earth just went through a blackout. Tyrell Corporation is bankrupt and the replicans are being destroyed and stop its production. But, a company named Wallace Corporation starts to take over and creating a new kind of replicans that is more advanced and more submissive. They are tasked to hunt down all the remaining replicans produced by Tyrell.

Ryan Gosling promisingly plays as K, outside tough as a Blade Runner but fragile on the inside because of his past. His emotions play together in every scene. Harrison Ford is one of the main key characters for the film even though he just showed up 45 minutes before the film ends. Sylvia Hoeks, the Dutch actress is able to give that scary aura out of her.

Dennis Vileneuve who directed Arrival in 2016 is back with this remake. This 2 hour and 43 minute film are amazing at the beginning. But, as time flies everything seems to fade away. The cinematography, the music, the acting in every scene are still amazing. Yet, still not enough to keep the audience on their sits. Too much unnecessary scenes included. Everything becomes unfit to the audience mind. This film presents the life of California in the future with the amazing cinematography by Roger Deakins. The visualization is amazing. In fact one of the few things great about this film.

Yes. The CGI lookes amazing, and this film got a lot of fans hoping to find something entertaining. Anyway, this film deserves Oscars. But, if you’re looking for something entertaining, suggestions would go to do next film on board. (Anna Rose)
