I was so worried when I found out that there was going to be a sequel to Blade Runner but as it turned out I didn’t need to be. Even though it is 2 hours and 44 mins you don’t actually realise while watching it just how long it is. Just over half way through the film I was actually waiting for Harrison Ford to come onto the screen. They couldn’t have done this film without him. I think Ryan Gosling is fantastic in this and he is such a diverse actor. The whole film is mostly down to the amazing director, Denis Villeneuve. The last film that he worked on was Arrival (2016) which was also breathtaking. The cinematography in Blade Runner 2049 was incredible. It is about time that Roger Deakins gets recognised for his work. The musical score was very well composed creating groaning and howling noises. Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch worked on this film and is the second time in 2017 where they worked together. The first being Dunkirk (2017). The editing is very well choreographed. Emily Blunt was offered a part but had to decline due to her being pregnant. At the Bafta Awards in 2018 this won two awards. They were for Best Cinematography (Roger Deakins) and also Best Achievements in Special Visual Effects. At the Academy Awards in 2018 this won two Oscars. They were for Best Cinematography (Roger Deakins) and Best Visual Effects.
