When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years. Written by
Warner Bros. Pictures
Ryan Gosling (K) and Wood Harris (Nandez) both appeared in Remember the Titans. See more »
While exploring the abandoned casino, K gives a casual one-handed spin to a roulette wheel. The soundtrack adds the rattling noise of a roulette ball (or pill) landing in a pocket, even though K clearly does not pick up a ball or launch one.
Only about two-thirds of the wheel is seen before K spins it, so the ball could have been sitting in the non-visible third ; and the camera quickly cuts away, so it could not be seen flung out and spinning. See more »

These are my opinions, but many around here agree with me so please hear me out.
I am not going to pose or be pretentious. I am going to be honest and simply lay it on the line.
The good: I am a Blade runner fanatic. The DVDs (yes, more than one edition) are sitting to my right as I type this. The original was just that: original and deep. The futuristic vision, the subplots and the theme were fantastic. Vangelis' score was once-in-a-life-time. I really liked BR2049's graphics and how big the effects were. The colour palette was impressive and made us feel in awe. I am a man so I like women's skin. beautiful women do it for me. My girlfriend knows it, I know it, my friends know it. Beautiful women make me happy.
The bad: we just do not need any more sequels, prequels and spin offs. We really do not. yet, that is all you are releasing. Even a general favourite like Blade Runner does not need its own sequel. Yes, granted we went for it, but seriously get a grip. We do not believe positive professional reviews anymore. We learnt that lesson with The Force Awakens. Not one professional reviewer mentioned that it is an inferior reboot. Finally, your films are becoming longer and longer. What is with the 2-hour plus movies that have become longer? Couple that with the twenty minutes of commercials (didn't I just pay you? why do I have to pay more with my time?) you force on me I am tempted to stay at home and skip the cinema.
Think about it.
