Blade Runner 2049

After the noms we went to Cineworld to see Blade Runner 2049.

This was one of those films where you dread them making a sequel in case they make a real pigs ear of it and mess up the legacy. Thankfully this was NOT the case here.

Here's a quick synopsis: Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Stylistically Blade Runner 2049 sticks close to Blade Runner and doesn't rely on naff CGI to paint the picture. We also have another superb soundtrack from Vangelis provided the perfect audio backdrop to the story.

It is a fantastic film, well worth going to see and a very worthy sequel to a classic.

I won't post any spoilers but there are questions left unanswered at the end of this (as with the first one) which leaves the whole thing beautifully enigmatic and cryptic.

Here's the trailer
