It does that really well like a cross between Outland, 12 Monkeys (B Willis) & Brazil but unfortunately that is about all it does give you a fantastic but hellish near future earth.PaulILMFan wrote:Blade Runner 2049.........what a long & boring film. Looks good set & FX wise but man did they really mess the film up. Its a simple story just poorly edited the scenes do not flow it takes 1.5 hours to really kick into gear then after a few brief action sequences it goes back to walking through treacle mode! Shame as it looks so good & shows a harsh & believeable future earth.
Makes STMP editing look like MTV
Haven't see the movie yet, but Deakins is one of my favorite cinematographers and he is getting Oscar talk for this.
I disliked Star Trek Into Darkness but even that contains way more entertainment than BR2049 and even TFA I really did not care for either but that also contains more entertainment and is less boring than BR2049.
Ford shows up for about 2 pages of dialog & about 15 min's total screen time. He has allowed himself to be used to sell the movie but Ryan Gosling is the only actor in almost the entire movie the rest come & go or in Ford's case are barely ever in it (he does not even show up until the last 40 min's). Ford is more of a cameo with about 3 scenes in total.
