If you didn't like the original then you wouldn't like 2049. After working a 10 hour day and having to work Friday, I drove an hour Thursday to see the last showing anywhere around. Got home at 2:30 am lol but it was totally worth it. Best cinema experience I've ever had. Never seen a sequel, especially one made 35 years later that was so true to the original. You'd never know the two films weren't made by the same director. Most visually stunning film I've ever seen, and Ryan Gosling gave an amazing performance.
