Back in 1982, we can’t all deny that Blade Runner became an international phenomenon. Derived from the novel, ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,’ by American writer Philip K. Dick.

This is a story of six renegade Nexus 6 Androids, or Replicants, whose basic aim is to gain more life, and search for their creator to make him give it to them. While in the meantime, bounty hunter Officer Rick Deckard, (Blade Runner) is hunting them down with the aim of retiring them with his laser weapon. But, what am I telling you this for, you know the story already!

So, Blade Runner 2049 tells a different story all together. It’s still about Replicants. Ryan Gosling plays a Blade Runner named Officer K., and (YES) Harrison Ford is back as Rick Deckard. And as in the first movie, he is just… so awesome.

I really enjoyed watching Gosling play the role of Officer K., as he brings a whole new dynamic to the film. I don’t want to tell you too much, but if you haven’t seen it yet, please go and watch it. Its’s a hell of a movie, I promise you’ll enjoy it. I give Blade Runner 2049… five out of five, ten out of ten, one hundred out of one hundred.

Enjoy.
