A new LAPD Officer (Ryan Gosling) manages to find a secret forgotten long time ago, which is able to put all what left of the society into chaos. These events take place thirty years after the events of the first film. As a result, K is forced by the consequences of his discovery to find the former LAPD blade runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who's been missing for the past thirty years.
Is Blade Runner 2049 a masterpiece like its predecessor? Definitely not. It's not even a match for 2016's superb Arrival, the previous film from director Denis Villeneuve. Yet on its own terms, it's a dazzling achievement.
From the grayed-out countrysides over which the sky has closed like a lid; to the drizzly neon decadence of Los Angeles; to the Ozymandian wreckage of Las Vegas-the film is a visual splendor of the first order.
