Blade Runner 2049 is a nearly three hour long movie about a dystopian future in America starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, and Jared Leto. It is the sequel to the original Blade Runner that debuted in 1982 with Harrison Ford as the lead actor.
The original Blade Runner movie became a cult classic years after it’s release due to the confusing nature of it. Awkward pacing and unclear storylines plagued the first one and continue to plague it’s sequel with one additional flaw. The runtime. 163 minutes. Entirely too long for a movie with as little content as it has.
While a beautiful movie, Blade Runner 2049 is a deeply flawed movie. If it were shorter, let’s say around 90 to 115 minutes, it would be much better. Each scene of the movie could be cut down by 30% and no information would be lost at all. Much of the movie feels like empty filler that is there for no other reason than to have the viewer oogle at how pretty the cinematography is. Which… it most certainly is. But it’s not beautiful enough to be the movie by itself with nothing else happening.
Gosling, Ford, and Leto – as well as the other actors in the film – all did a great job. But their performances seem to be suited for a much shorter film.
Another thing that would have made the movie better is more clear storylines that went somewhere. Sometimes what appears to be a storyline is introduced but it goes nowhere. The editing seems to be the issue here. It’s like someone took a good movie and chopped it up into a bad one. I do not go recommend you see this movie. While not totally awful, I did not enjoy it.
