Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott, and starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young, and Rutger Hauer, was released in 1982 and is easily one of the most stunning films I have ever seen. The film is set in November, 2019, in a visually stunning…

My favorite movie ever made. Remember its a love story ~
Aug 25, 2020
A scifi movie that was 20 to 30 years ahead of its time and which other subsequent scifi flicks emulated. Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is not who (or what) he appears to be. The film has subtle little clues laced throughout the script. …

The sequel is better.

One of the most visually stunning films ever. This movie has served as the template for cyberpunk and science fiction pictures since the 1980s.

I seem to remember liking this movie, but that was 36 years ago. I struggled to keep awake this time around and had to back-up a few times. What had me looking back to see it again was after watching the Danish National Symphony…

This is quite likely the greatest science fiction film I have ever seen. Its certainly worth re-watching. The sound/ music is perhaps the best part. The characters and plot are interesting and the ending remains open to the right extent…

Sci fi noir; clockwork orange psychopaths, with another excuse for why. I made it somewhere up to 1/2 way, then said, "I have better things to do with my life." Even looking at Harrison Ford didn't make it worthwhile. Two stars because it…

I can't see much difference between this and the director's cut. Both are far better than the butchered theatrical release with its annoying and unnecessary voice-over narration and its Hollywood ending. For those who haven't seen…

Hello, darlings! - So, what's all the fuss about? This film left me with such feelings of emptiness.

There have been so many versions of this film, I am sure they got their money out with Director' cut, final cut, and theatre cut. I have to say that for it's time it was really well done. But sometimes it is better not to revisit a film…

Good film, I enjoyed it. It is sci-fi noir, and done in a dark, slow, moody artistic manner - but the director was wise enough to know that mood does not fit every scene in the movie, therefore the action was action, not slow moody…

Classic movie but parts certainly did not age well. Still one of the best attempts to marry sci-fi with film noir.

Watched BR-2049 last week. To refresh and reconnect to its 1982 prequel, watched this “Final Cut” BR version in Blu-Ray which included a bunch of introductions by film makers, including director Ridley Scott. This “Final Cut” is…

This is cult classic that helped launch the cyberpunk genre! Rick Deckard is a "blade runner" in post-apocalyptic 2019 Los Angeles. It is his duty to hunt down and "retire" renegade bioengineered humans known as replicants.

Blade Runner is a profound experience and probably the best 'original' scifi film of the 80s in terms of atmosphere and plot. Harrison Ford is very impressive, despite not being the first choice for the lead. Based on the book Do Androids…

Perhaps on its deepest level, "Blade Runner" explores ... a theme as old as Genesis and the myth of Prometheus, and iterated in "Paradise Lost," Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," and in Blake's arcane, visionary mythology.

Good film, I enjoyed it. However, it wasn't as good as it was made out to be. This is the "Final Cut" so there are some changes from other versions. One of the biggest is the lack of narration from Harrison Ford. I wonder if that might…

Simply one of the best science fiction movies ever, influencing so many films that followed.

The more times I watched it (except for a few brutal scenes), the more I like it.

See the Wikipedia article, "Versions of Blade Runner," for an explanation of what's in and what's out of the various versions available. Certainly this Final Cut is the only one with the full "unicorn dream" sequence.

I'm not sure why this is called "The Final Cut". It's in letterbox format (widescreen with black at top and bottom) which is annoying. There was only a five second part added near the beginning and other than that it was identical to…

The plot? Doesn't really matter, like a lot of cyberpunk. Like, you can debate if Deckard is a replicant or not or whether you like the original narration, but really that's not the point of the movie. The point is the mood: overbuilt…

My personal favorite as greatest movie ever made. It visually stunning and musically hypnotic. The use of depth, light, color and shadows are astounding. It's not science fiction or film noir but a love story that asks the questions of…
