Blade Runner 2049 is set 30 years after the original movie. It is a sequel to the original and a few of the characters from the original are mentioned and/or seen. It recaptures the gritty noir feeling of the original.
The story also makes you answer the hard questions concerning artificial intelligence, souls, and morality.
****Spoilers may follow *****
Blade Runner 2049 is centered around a bio-engineered human (replicant) named K. Replicants have been integrated into society as servants/slaves. K works as a “blade runner” for the LAPD. His job is to hunt down and retire rogue replicants.
During one of K’s investigations a buried box containing the remains of a once pregnant female replicant is found. The rest of the movie is focused on his search for the child of the pregnant replicant.
Jack thinks Blade Runner 2049 is one of the best science fiction movies he has seen in some time. I on the other hand felt indifferent towards the movie. I recommend any fan of the original Blade Runner movie to see this sequel. I do not hate the movie, but I won’t be buying the Bluray when it comes out.
