    I love that you pointed out how artistic this film is, and it’s a rare blockbuster that can also be art. It was truly beautiful, with long scenes of primary colors. I was hypnotized by the movie and it needs to be seen on a big screen.
    Great review, keep them coming!

    I thought it had an intriguing storyline, but was about an hour too long. I literally checked my watch during the climatic action finale and thought “oh come on, die already” before wondering why everybody looked so warm splashing around in water when it was cold enough to snow.

    Harrison Ford was a bit of disappointment too, though he wasn’t given a lot to work with. At 75, he would be a lot more credible pitching term life insurance or Metamucil than trading punches with someone half his age. On the other hand, a robot was the perfect culmination of Ryan Gosling’s years of playing emotionally distant, quiet, monotone characters.

    So glad you liked this movie! I am going to have to see it now… just convinced my husband to see it also based on your review.

    I think it is one of the best, if not the best, SF movies ever made. It surpasses the original in most ways, and Ryan Gosling is superb. It is “thinky” and beautiful and spends enough time on ideas instead of blasting the viewer’s eyes and ears with constant car/air/running/whatever sequences of mayhem and destruction.
