Early Reviews For Blade Runner 2049 Call It A Masterpiece

Turns out it was worth waiting three decades for a sequel to Blade Runner.

Critics have seen early screenings of the upcoming Blade Runner 2049, and while it'll be a minute before they can release formal reviews, there's nothing stopping them from tweeting. The early consensus is that director Denis Villeneuve (SicarioArrival) has crafted a worthy follow-up to Ridley Scott's landmark original, and the movie just might be the best film of the year.

Scott served as a producer on the flick, which brings back Harrison Ford as former blade runner Rick Deckard. Set 30 years after the first movie, it centers on a young LAPD cop named K (Ryan Gosling) who stumbles upon a huge mystery that only the long-missing Deckard may hold the key to uncovering. Jared Leto plays Niander Wallace, a manipulative replicant manufacturer, and Robin Wright plays Lieutenant Joshi. Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, and Mackenzie Davis co-star.

Check out what critics are saying below, and judge for yourself when Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on Oct. 6.
