I’m not going to bother going on and on about this waste of time. In short, it is overlong, self-indulgent, confusing and often boring. I could not generate any empathy for Gosling’s character, as he played him so woodenly unlikable. Ford was OK, but no one really had that much passion except for the replicant lady chasing our “hero”. There were plot threads left hanging and some inexplicable leaps with people suddenly knowing stuff for no reason and doing things for no purpose.

I cannot recommend this one. There are no post credit scenes and there are a LOT of credits..

Flytrap rating: 4/10
