If you’re looking for a nice, reassuring followup to Ridley Scott’s massively influential 1982 sci-fi pic, with state-of-the-art production values and loads of thrills, maybe you should take in a Bugs Bunny festival instead. Only the second part of that proposition, the one about glossy production, is available here. Director Denis (Arrival, Sicario) Villeneuve’s brilliantly depressing sequel delivers plenty of visual and sonic highlights, but its picture of the future is guaranteed to make most 21st-century earthlings want to depart for somewhere else immediately. As before, LAPD officer Ryan Gosling deals with replicants and hostile “skin jobs” -- including Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Sylvia Hoeks, Jared Leto, and the original cop, played by Harrison Ford – in a grayer, soggier, vastly more high-tech version of today. For sheer dire spectacle, Villeneuve’s vision is a clear advance, the slickest fantasy in many moons. It’s just so damned dispiriting, not to mention overlong. Screenplay by original writer Hampton Fancher, plus Michael Green (164 min., 2017, rated R)
