Did You Know?

Trivia

When asked for his thoughts about the sequel beforehand, Rutger Hauer (who played Roy Batty in Blade Runner (1982)) stated that he was completely indifferent to it. He saw no reason why the makers would go back to something which he thought was already perfect, but admitted that it could be considered a compliment. He was equally unimpressed after seeing the film, stating that "it's not a character-driven movie and there's no humor, there's no love, there's no soul. You can see the homage to the original. But that's not enough to me." See more »

Goofs

While exploring the abandoned casino, K gives a casual one-handed spin to a roulette wheel. We never see the ball and various theories purport that it is not possible to launch the ball.

It is fully possible to pick up a ball sitting in the part of the wheel we cannot see due to the camera angle, and roll it and give the wheel a spin in one motion. See more »

Quotes

'K': I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

Early in the closing credits amidst the distortion of the letters, Editor Joe Walker's first name initially for a very brief moment appears as "JOI". See more »

Alternate Versions

In India, the film had to be censored before it could receive an 'A' rating from the CBFC (Indian rating's board); these cuts removed all shots of nudity from the film; while it was pointed out that the nudity was in fact computer generated images rather than real footage the censors still objected to this and demanded cuts. The censors also demanded that all shots of liquor bottles in the film have their labels be blurred out. See more »

A sleek, expensive and obedient skin-job
8 October 2017 | by stamboulopoulosSee all my reviews

Blade Runner (1982) was a happy (yet gloomy) accident, involving: a) a young and ambitious director who fought ferociously with studio executives in order for them to let him fulfill his vision; b) a rising blockbuster star who wanted to prove he can also act in a serious movie; c) a crazy Dutch actor who decided to change the script and improvise one of the most memorable monologues in film history; d) a bunch of talented artists who wanted to make a movie that would look and sound different from anything else we had seen before. And most of all, e) a post-Vietnam turbulent era when Hollywood rebels like Coppola, Scorsese and Cimino were audaciously attempting to reinvent the language of cinema, telling stories that mattered and not caring at all about target audiences and marketing trends. As a result, Blade Runner was a box office failure that slowly became a legend, breaking stereotypes like "good guy kills bad guy at the end" and dealing with existential agony on an almost metaphysical level; always within the context of a gritty corporate dystopia in the near future.

Blade Runner 2049 is none of these things. On the contrary, it's the flawed triumph of a next generation of studio executives, who control the creative process by paying millions to the industry's best of the best, providing they will make something that will take advantage of a successful brand name in order to bring profits to shareholders. If there is one word to describe this movie, it's "replicant". Not the kind of replicant who realizes that "all those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain" as he dies, but a sleek, expensive and obedient skin-job that will try to entertain you and if it succeeds will return as a sequel that will eventually become yet another franchise. I spent 160 minutes of my life watching a pleasant and perfectly constructed piece of nothing, and I didn't care for a moment about any of the characters or a storyline that was designed without the intention to question and redefine a single thing. All its moments have already been lost in my memory, while the original Blade Runner remains vivid in my mind, as if I only saw it yesterday.
