Despite his positive review, however, Collider’s Steven Weintraub cautions audiences not to read any reviews before seeing Blade Runner. “Blade Runner 2049 is absolutely loaded with spoilers. Even the plot of the film is a spoiler. If you are going to see it, avoid reviews,” he tweets.
Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters next Friday, October 6th.
