Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

“Blade Runner 2049” is a big-budget art film that’s likely to frustrate as many moviegoers as it fascinates. Some will complain that it’s too long, or too confusing, but such criticisms are simply beside the point. Very much in the spirit of the original “Blade Runner” (1982), the film is more slow burn than slam-bang. And for that true cinema buffs surely will be grateful. Working from a script by “Blade Runner” co-author Hampton Fancher and Michael Green (“Logan”), director Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival”) delivers a moody, visually stunning celebration of existential angst. Not that he skimps on the kind of mayhem that’s de rigueur these days, but you have to wait for it — and wait for it. But when it does arrive, it’s awesome.

Ford is generating Oscar buzz for his return to the role of Deckard, and Gosling brings to K a touching soulfulness.

“Blade Runner 2049” is not just a movie but an event. Don’t be the only human on your block not to see it.
