WARNING: While this film is visually stimulating and well acted, it is also almost three hours long and is very slow moving. So if you do not have that kind of patience for a movie, please stay away. If you are one of those people who need non-stop action and silly, non-sensical one-liners, then this is not the movie for you. However, if you are one of those people who can appreciate a well-made film with stunning visuals, top-notch cinematography, and electric performances, then, by all means, this is the film for you.

Why this film is worth the money

There are certainly a few action sequences along the way before we eventually get to the explosive ending, but they are few and far between. There was still plenty to be entertained by away from the action. You are sure to be carried away by the fascinating visual effects, which were only bolstered by cinematography expert, Roger Deakins, and his brilliant use of the camera. Composer, Hans Zimmer, also once again lends his expertise, along with the help of "It" composer, Benjamin Wallfisch, to give the epic sounds the film needed in order to fit the extremely large scope of this futuristic world. Ryan Gosling also lends his prowess in the acting department, as he ably holds the audience's attention with his mysterious persona.

The plot

The film follows Gosling for the bulk of the film, and, like the visuals, it is hard to take your eyes off of him. Not just because he is a good looking human being, but also because he is able to capture all the real emotions that his character occasionally feels using only facial expressions since his character has very little dialogue.

Going into too much further detail with his character (K) would only bring spoilers, so the only other thing left to say is that he is a blade runner who uncovers a secret that has been hidden for many years.

What is so important about this secret that it would take over 2 and a half hours to solve? Well, I guess you are just going to have to find out for yourself.

That’s right, you aren’t going to get anything more out of this Review as far as the plot goes, so if you need to know more about the story, feel free to look it up yourself. This lack of detail is just following suit with the trailer, which also did a good job of not giving anything away, unlike most trailers these days. The payoff, in the end, is worth the wait though, if you are willing to put in the time. Again be warned, this is a very slow build kind of a movie and can be very tedious at times. Because of this, you really feel the lengthy run time. Some advice: sit back, relax and let the spectacle that is "Blade Runner 2049" take you away.
