What a waste of visuals, acting and talent.
I like David Villeneuve work a lot. I am not the ultimate Ryan Gosling fan, but I like his acting. And I liked him a lot in Blade Runner 2049.
I started having doubts the moment the I read the opening crawl. Those are basically trying to redefine the framework for the new story.
And I was asking myself, why? Why do you need to redefine anything for this movie? For this kind of movie? For Blade Runner sequel?
Blade Runner was the movie without a narration, and you want to start explaining things in 2049? You are on the wrong track.
My one and only question for the creatives behind Blade Runner 2049 is why do a sequel to Blade Runner if you don’t have a story?
Ok I can understand that, you love that movie so much, so deeply, that you just crave to have a follow up. I feel that too.
Not this lame.
That’s the best way to honour one of the best movie ever made, take your time and write a decent story. Good visuals and good acting doesn’t make a good movie without a good story.
And Blade Runner deserved a good story too.
This bunch of people…
Could and should have delivered something better.
