Goofs

While exploring the abandoned casino, K gives a casual one-handed spin to a roulette wheel. The soundtrack adds the rattling noise of a roulette ball (or pill) landing in a pocket, even though K clearly does not pick up a ball or launch one.

Only about two-thirds of the wheel is seen before K spins it, so the ball could have been sitting in the non-visible third ; and the camera quickly cuts away, so it could not be seen flung out and spinning.

However, this cannot be so since a roulette wheel is designed such that a ball does not simply sit there, but will naturally roll into a number pocket, even if the wheel is stationary. And if the wheel is then casually spun, the ball is not flung out but will remain trapped in its pocket. This behavior of the ball is required to show that the wheel is not rigged.

And furthermore, the Accidentally Flung Ball scenario is not seen to happen in the "Time to Live" featurette, which has a longer shot of this scene where the camera doesn't cut away. See more »

A masterpiece of science fiction and possibly one of the greatest sequels ever made
5 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) and once again based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, it successfully recaptures just about everything excellent about the original and is a superb sequel to one of the greatest and most important science fiction films of all time.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling) works as a Blade Runner, retiring old rogue replicants (artificial humans) hiding out around the Los Angeles area. One day while on a job, K discovers a long buried secret in the yard of a replicant which leads him on a journey to track down former Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for decades.

Featuring amazing visuals and some of the most philosophical and thought-provoking themes since the original, Blade Runner 2049 is a masterpiece of science fiction and is possibly one of the greatest sequels ever made. I was transfixed the entire time, to the point where I felt that even blinking would cause me to miss something I wanted to see. The cast was brilliant as well, especially Ryan Gosling, who does a fantastic job carrying the film as its lead actor. However, perhaps best of all, is that seeing the original is not a requirement to fully understand everything that is going on, although it would probably still help to have done so beforehand. I'm almost certain that author Philip K. Dick would be proud of this film. I know I am.

I rate it a very high 9.5/10
