Comments: Thirty years after the events of Blade Runner, a young cop is tracking down the last of the rogue replicants. Unlike the original Blade Runner, this officer is a late-model replicant. His search brings to life his fabricated memories. The real question is what if his memories aren't fabricated?
Like the latest Mad Max film, I really enjoyed this film. It struck a chord with me.
Yes, this film is quite long, like the original , and the future world is mostly miserable. Though, I will remark that the addition of snow makes it better.
There are allusions to Mr. Dick's novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. But, there are no other references to the novel. Too bad because I read the novel before viewing this film! Still, this movie is enjoyable and worth watching.
