Blade Runner 2049 Review: Yes.

Emma Coons, Journalist

Wow. Walking out all I could say was, “wow.” Texted everyone I knew, “Wow.” This movie blew me away in ways I couldn’t have imagined. Blade Runner 2049 continues the story of Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner now in the year 2049, which is even more industrialized and naturless than the original’s 2019. Even with an almost three hour run-time, this movie kept me absolutely enthralled every second.

If you hadn’t seen the original, this movie would be quite confusing. I would highly recommend watching the original soon before going to see the movie as I did. I watched Blade Runner right before going to see 2049 and it almost felt like one long movie. The two were very coherent and 2049 was a perfect continuation of the original’s story. My favorite part of this movie, as most movie’s, was the color scheme. The creators used different colors to represent different things, like dark grey and black were presented for the industrial areas and yellow was used throughout to represent abandonment and destruction. This is a movie everyone should see, and I highly reccomend in theaters.
