Gorgeous '2049' breaks the 'Blade Runner' spell"We're all just looking out for something real," says Robin Wright's police captain in "Blade Runner 2049 ". While "Blade Runner 2049" is always something to look at, an overly elaborate script and some other bad habits common to today's sequel machinery – such as glaring product placement – have broken the "Blade Runner" spell.Scott is a producer this time around, but he had his hands in the film's development, along with "Blade Runner" scribe Hampton Fancher (who co-writes here with Michael Green).Gosling has little about him that suggests android, unless future scientists are planning to work extremely hard on a "charmingly bemused" setting. I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys," but Gosling's nature plays into the movie. The late-arriving Harrison Ford is there in the flesh, but he's coming off a "Star Wars" franchise that reanimated actors, including a dead one, into younger digital facsimiles.Maybe "Blade Runner" wore its complexities on its sleeve, too, but it's hard not to agree with the old blade runner who turns up late in the film."Blade Runner 2049" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
