Denis Villeneuve is some kind of cinematic magician. He bounces between genres, masters them all, and has now resurrected a 35-year-old classic and made it his own. It’s like he soaked in the essence of Blade Runner and channelled it into this new story, which continues the original’s themes regarding sentience, expands on them, then adds new shades of grey.

Slow and BORING

This is far too long, far too slow, far too boring. Nowhere near as good as the original. Do yourself a favour and avoid this, otherwise be prepared to waste 3 hours...

Utterly sensational.

It's a thrilling, stunning masterpiece; equalling (over) it's powerful predecessor.

Do Androids get as sentimental as Hollywood?

Trying to breathe enough life into a simple idea to make a sequel is tricky. The new idea is quite clever but the execution seemed to lack thought. If the pacing was faster, we the audience might not notice the plot holes but Blade Runner 2049 takes a slow and measured approach and then puts the brakes on in the third act giving us far too long to think...

I imagine most audiences will like the film ... I thought it was okay.

A visually breathtaking, long-fuse action movie whose unconventional thrills could be described as many things - from tantalising to tedious - but never "artificially intelligent."

Villeneuve's film is a direct continuation in every respect; it's difficult to imagine anyone - even Ridley Scott - making a better Blade Runner sequel.

It just has to be experienced on the biggest screen possible. Blade Runner 2049 is a narcotic spectacle of eerie and pitiless vastness, by turns satirical, tragic and romantic.

Despite its blockbuster trappings, this Blade Runner is as much an art movie as the first one: slow, idea-driven, and often emotionally remote.

Villeneuve has taken the double-edged sword of the update and created a Blade Runner 2049 worthy of honouring its ancestor, while bringing it appropriately into the mid-21st Century.

An artform of suspense and enigma that's as compelling and fascinating as it is emotionally distant.

Visually immaculate, swirling with themes as heart-rending as they are mind-twisting, 2049 is, without doubt, a good year. And one of 2017's best.
