I don't know what the heck was going on. too many slow pauses of just staring at each other (like in The Office, when Jim stares at you for 30 seconds).

Too many characters to follow, slow pace movie.

The original Blade Runner had an edge to it in the plot, characters and action. This follow up has none of that. If you saw and liked the original, nothing we write will stop you from watching this one, but you were warned.

Like most of the quotes comments below; too slow and too long. After reading the director is the same one from The Arrival, makes perfect sense. Both movies were simply boring!
I hope that if a second Blade Runner is coming, that they get someone else to do the movie but here's hoping they leave it alone. 2 hours and 40mins of my life wasted!

Too slow, too long, too sentimental.

Just like the first Bladerunner, I was not surprised to see this one be equally ... DARK. I get that it's dystopian sci-fi and had to keep the same tone as the first, since it's told as 30 years later, but the swearing within the first fifteen minutes and the dark dark DARK futuristic setting had me nearly turning it off. Were the particulates raining down all around LA pollution? or snow? or worse? And how did Harrison Ford's retired character get a casino entirely for himself and his dog?
But something captured my interest and held me to the end, especially the female character locked into a domed room all by herself (won't spoil it by sharing who). Still, just a "meh." For 2 hours and 40 minutes I would have hoped for more. Harrison Ford has a short stint in the second half of the movie and some of the special effects are cool (you'd expect that from this type of movie) but I won't want to watch it again.

Really good; I liked it even more than the original movie. It appears a sequel is in the offing (that's just judging from the ending: I haven't heard anything concrete about it).

I liked the way this sequel continues and extends the original's themes of real versus artificial and what qualifies as human with implanted memories, a VR girlfriend and the potential for replicants to replicate. However, the cyberpunk original felt crowded whereas barrenness and isolation pervades here. I had to explain what was going on to family members a couple of times so plot details may not be clear to everyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed the visuals and music on this movie, in particular the water-fall scene. While I missed this in IMAX, they took the 1:85 aspect ratio and put that on the DVD/Blu-Ray format, and I had a full screen without letter-box to enjoy the nice visuals. It took about a day or two to shake this movie out of my system. It brought back the magic of the old Blade Runner and really transcended the meaning and scope of it. I was more comfortable with this one since the old one was too creepy and felt quasi-occultic. This seemed like a more brighter and "down to earth" movie than the first one, but did have a creepy scene here and there.

This movie has no soul. I couldn't relate to any of the characters. Ryan Gosling can't act but this was his best role... a robot. Some of the sets were really nice, though.
I didn't know that the director was also responsible for that other dull movie Arrival. Makes sense now.

Pages of quotes in IMDb including this title card introduction:

Replicants are bioengineered humans, designed by Tyrell Corporation for use off-world. Their enhanced strength made them ideal slave labor. After a series of violent rebellions, their manufacture became prohibited and Tyrell Corp went bankrupt.

The collapse of ecosystems in the mid 2020s led to the rise of industrialist Niander Wallace, whose mastery of synthetic farming averted famine. Wallace acquired the remains of Tyrell Corp and created a new line of replicants who obey. Many older model replicants - Nexus 8s with open-ended lifespans - survived. They are hunted down and 'retired'

Those that hunt them still go by the name... Blade Runner.
