Blade Runner 2049 Trailer 1

BLADE RUNNER 2049 IMAX

The dark and desolate Los Angeles depicted by Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve is a convincing one. Ecosystems have failed and humanity seems adrift, farms are experimental and the public seems lost in a sea of vice and hopelessness. Officer K is searching for something, and he has the capability and power to do it his way. The LAPD Detective, who routinely checks into his office only to be barraged with an intense exam of Orwellian complexity, is slowly uncovering clues to the whereabouts of a very important person. We don't know who or what, and yet can't help but feel completely reeled in as he goes about his work. In the meantime we are introduced to the futility of year 2049 farming, with Dave Bautista making a cameo as Sapper Morton, the old, defeated farmer representing a populace that's given up on itself.

Sylvia Hoeks, as "Luv", the downloadable, storable but somehow mostly human hologram, shows us the future of romantic entertainment as a digi-girlfriend for Officer K, her cleverly displayed elements adding comic relief and emotional engagement in a way I haven't witnessed in a film before. Sure, her makeup is borrowed from Star Trek and sure, Hoeks can hold the male audience's attention with ease, but she isn't shoehorned into the film to do just that. There are two critical scenes involving "Luv" that, with her limitations in mind, give the audience a unique treat I won't dare ruin. And in a later scene that I also will not ruin, Luv utters the phrase "I love you" with a timing and meaning so powerful I nearly had to leave the theatre whilst crying. I am not a tear-jerker at the movies but will never forget the emotional engagement I had with this scene. Jared Leto's "Niander Wallace" is a powerful businessman and slave-owner who replicates Nexus 8 human clones and seeks to increase his power in the crumbling world. He has slaves, and he wants more. We don't really have enough time in this film, even given its near - 3 hour run time, to understand more, but we don't need to at this time. He's only in the movie sporadically, but as usual, Leto's acting is superb.

Harrison Ford returning as "Deckerd" was a welcome addition to Ford's resume. The true fans of this franchise will be excited to see him, while I found other elements in the film more enjoyable. The cinematography in BR 2049 is simply jaw-dropping, from the long exploration takes to the aerial shots to the immense live sets to the coloring of the radioactive sand of a post-apocalypse Nevada desert. Roger Deakins should win an Oscar for his work, and I think this time last, he will. The lighting, colors, framing and camera work are all just jaw-dropping and there really isn't a project in cinematic history that can match it. One particular confrontation scene involves a projector in Las Vegas partially reactivating stored performances of Elvis, Marlyn Monroe and countless colorful dancers, the main characters fighting and marching through the light while the show dazzles around them in interrupted bursts. An orgasmic visual treat of this level should be considered Oscar-grade stuff, and it is.

The sound engineering in this movie is sublime, with an array of 80s-style synths amped to max with ear-piercing resonance, creating a tone of mystique confusion and despair that fully transport the view into the BR2049 universe. The soundtrack alone is enough of a reason to enjoy the film. The dialogue is sharp and concise, the writing clean, and the 7 or 8 characters featured interact with each other well. Ryan Reynolds showcases the best work of his career as a menacingly tough LAPD cop, who completely in-character and committed, his full conviction as an actor on display as he tears through opposition and barriers. Gun shots are fired, but only at the opportune moments and with precision and meaning. They are loud, resonating and deep with meaning.  The only complaints I have are minimal and barely worth mentioning: a dog can be clearly seen staring at his trainer in a late scene.  And the run time of this film is a bit excessive -- there are many scenes that could simply have been edited down. I would have preferred a full 3 hours with more dialogue or more scenes of Leto's "Niander Wallace" explaining more about his grande vision.  I have seen this film and will see it again in IMAX - which I recommend you all do as well. It is an epic masterpiece. High MATINEE!!!
