Kennedy’s review published on Letterboxd:
Blade Runner 2049 is a transfixing, epic, absorbing, gritty, and masterful filmmaking achievement. The direction, cinematography, production design, score, acting, script, editing, and the world of Blade Runner are all superb. The story is emotionally resonating and thought-provoking. The visuals are absolutely stunning and the world is complex, dense, and fleshed out. I would consider this better than the original. This film stuck in my mind long after my first viewing and every time I watch it again, I’m stuck in a trance. Denis Villeneuve has yet another fantastic film to his catalog. Blade Runner 2049 is an incredible marvel.
