Trivia

A visual effects company worked for a full year on the scene where Rachael (Sean Young) appears exactly as she did 35 years ago in Blade Runner (1982). Look-alike actress Loren Peta acted out the scene, and her appearance was changed through computer-generated visual effects to resemble Young. Rachael's voice was provided by a sound double. Director Denis Villeneuve purposely limited the amount of Rachael's shots and gave the visual effects team ample time to work, in order to avoid the criticism that the digitally recreated Carrie Fisher and Peter Cushing in Rogue One (2016) had drawn. He said that the result was "mesmerizing". See more »

Goes through all the motions of a good movie but has no meat on it
10 October 2017 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

As someone I know said, this is a "cargo cult movie". It has all the exterior of what a great Blade runner sequel would look like but there is little underneath.

Visuals are stunning, music and sound are good, camera work is as it should be, but when you get down to its core, there's little there. I am not usually the one to complain about a slow pacing or a plot that requires some suspense of belief, but here It seems they serve as a way to achieve the deep and philosophical feel without actually being either. Acting overall is mediocre at best, actors fail to convincingly relay emotion of the characters, that are themselves written quite shallow, unrelatable and one dimensional. There are some interesting questions raised by the plot, the whole thing is far from a total disaster, but nothing is explored deep enough or clearly enough to be truly interesting or engaging. That's why this movie is going to be remembered just as a sequel to it's famous original.
