You hear the pitter patter of rain, the horns of cars in traffic, and the bustling of trains taking people to work. That is just the tip of the iceberg for how much effort into sound design that the sound development team of this movie put into their work.

From the sounds to the music “Blade Runner 2049” was a masterpiece of both cinematography and music scores. Director Denis Villeneuve panned out very shot perfectly to display the beautiful landscapes and gritty locations.

With the original “Blade Runner not being a hit, but a cult classic, this film was made just for the fans of the original and not for the average movie goer.

It takes every minute of the two hours and 44 minutes to tell a compelling and smart story that perfectly places every clue out for the viewer to piece the puzzle together by themselves.

Ryan Gosling’s portrayal of Officer K, a replicant police officer, is spot on and was the perfect call for the characters kind but can be rough if he wants to kind of attitude.

While Harrison Ford returns for his role as Officer Rick Deckard, he is not seen till very late in the movie making his role more vital for the story rather than for fanfare.

This shows that Villeneuve really took the time to tell the story and does not just throw everything at you at once like other big blockbusters of the year.

The movie takes you through a very long mystery and slowing puts the pieces together only to shock you in the end leaving you satisfied with all questions answered and no strings left untied.

The movie uses a lot of musical cues and ramp ups to spice up the experience of every shot. The low boom of the cities music is for the factories, trains, and cars noises combining into one long note.

Overall, “Blade Runner 2049” is a beautifully created mystery sci-fi thriller that keeps you engaged the whole way through and does not leave you hanging in the end.
