Starring: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robyn Wright, Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Edward James Olmos, Dave Batista, Sylvia Hoeks, Mackenzie DavisRuntime: 164 minutesDirected by: Denis VilleneuvePlot: Years have passed since the first movie (real life and movie life), replicants started having outbursts and not being as good anymore, so the company was shut down only to be bought up Niander Wallace (Leto), a man who created a food source for the universe. These new replicants have to shut down the old ones. Enter "K" (Gosling), who has to hunt down a 30 year old gruff secret.Review: Seeing as this movie was not directed by Ridley Scott, the gentleman that they had direct it, Denis Villeneuve (The Arrival) did a really great job of reliving the same style, sort of an homage, but so much more so in my mind. While I have a lot of respect for a lot of the things Ridley Scott has done over the years, I cannot say that I think he should almost stop trying (I read an article where he states the new Alien movie may not even have Aliens in it...).I have also read, seen and heard a whole bunch about Ryan Gosling and how "he needs to stop trying to be cool". Which immediately makes me upset because Ryan Gosling is great. He's that one Hollywood guy who's very handsome and has no problem doing weird ass, scary, "get your hands dirty" kinda movies. Not very common for someone who was cast in The Notebook. I also think he's genuinely a good actor and has don some really great things over the years. Not even counting his awesome tv days when he was on Breaker High, the show about overprivileged kids who got to go to school on a fucking yacht for a year.The movie is really beautifully done, a lot of good colours mixed with the dark, bleak existence that is painted in the future. A lot of it reminded me of the real life remake of Ghost in the Shell, but focused less on that and more on the movie itself, which was good.The music and score were all poignant and done really well, but we went to the fancy theatre and the sound was super loud, which gave me a headache because I'm a 95 year old man, but it doesn't change the fact that it was all really well placed within the movie.I know this isn't a Ridley Scott movie, but because he heavily influenced it, I found the dialogue not very good. I never really thought his dialogue was done very well and had robots put into his movies so he could cover up the fact he's not good at it. That has always been an issue for me, certainly since other directors have gotten so good at it and have moved into a whole new place with movies.My only real complaint with it and it's not even a complaint as it's not that type of movie, is there are many other planets that people habitat, but we never see them at all, we never see if there's alien life (in this series), we only see Earth and I think it would be cool to see other places.All in all a very well done movie, despite my dislike of Harrison Ford over the past couple years, that I would absolutely recommend to anyone who has: seen the first one and liked it, enjoys sci-fi, enjoys longer movies.
