    Disappointing.

    One scene (and it was a scene shot for the teaser Trailer) made me feel i was back in the Blade Runner universe, and it literally lasted less than 5 seconds.

    Get where they were going with it, but kept thinking "How would Ridley Scott have done this" and constantly saw how "flat" the visuals were in comparison.
    Putting running water to cast shadows on the back wall isn't the same as what Ridley did...
    Difference in Directorial style for sure, Prisoners and Sicario were superb...but they weren't close to Blade Runner.

    Happy to be have been there back in the Day when art was made, Alien too...but unfortunately 2049 doesn't compare...or Covenant.
    No fault of all the artists involved, you just cant catch lightning in a bottle twice.

    Both films stand apart, happily I can re-watch Blade Runner knowing its a standalone cinematic event.
    Selling my 4K HDR disc, no intention to watch it again.

    Oh that is a shame Gaz after you had been looking forward to it so much. I wonder if you would have felt the same seeing it in an IMAX?

    I can't help thinking it's a cinematic experience only film, I think it would be very flat at home. I also wonder if the hype and ravings from some of us may have had a sub-concious effect, I saw it without knowing a thing, which is my preferred way of seeing a film.

    Still my best film of 2017.

    Just finished the 5th watch this evening. Love it !!

    Not as good as the first but a worthy sequel I think.

    Jim.

    P.S. Got the soundtrack too, sounds great.

    Ach...
    Maybe on a rewatch it'll bed in a bit better who knows.
    (yes I've changed my mind on rewatching it )

    I take the two movies as separate stories in the same world, with a link between them.
    Doesn't stop Blade Runner being what it is, and 2049 does have good stuff going for it.

    Crikey!

    Soundtrack works in the context of the movie I think, but as a stand alone piece of music not so much.
    Like the movie itself, it just makes me want to go back to the original work.

    Have about 6 versions of Vangelis' original music including all the bootlegs over the years, guess the new one never stood a chance!

    Agreed, it's no Vangelis, but it is good and I do think it works as a stand-alone work, but only after I program the player to get rid of Frank and Elvis. I like a bit of Frank and some of Elvis but if you skip those tracks, turn the lights off and the HiFi up, it really does work. Those Bass notes
