A fantastic film with great philosophical insight into what it means to live, questioning the very meaning of being.
Set in a nihilistic future Harrison Ford is retired Blade Runner, a cop who... Read more "retires" artificial humans called "replicants", one of which he soon finds attraction to.
Voted one the greatest science-fiction film of all time (even ahead of 2001: A Space Odyssey), this film is really worth seeing for the visuals, proof that Ford can act, the film's exploration of mortality, and for the stunning Vangelis soundtrack.
This is the directors cut, and there is also a later 'final cut'. Slightly different endings, but both without the original voice over of Deckard. This was widely panned as detracting from the overall... Read more feel of the film, and as being a clumsy addition.
I however quite liked it (Deckards voice over/narrative), think SinCity or any cheap detective noir from the 40's.
Not sure if you can get the original version on DVD even, I have it on VHS. Weird eh????
Harrisons " Deckard " and Rutgers " Roy " are great lead roles in this Ridley Scott classic. 1992 thought provoking movie serves up some great action sequences and memorable dialogue ( "let me tell... Read more you about my mother" ).
IMDB top sci fi flick make this compulsory viewing 17 years later!
It's cyberpunk the way it always should be - dark and gothicky, lots of rain, lots of neon, hustling plastic-coated crowds, grime... This film never gets old. Amazing soundtrack/score to accompany.... Read more Deckard hunts the replicants through the futuristic city... the biggest question always has been - is he himself one? Google for the director's answer, I don't want to spoil it ;)
true classic in all senses of the word-acting,cinematography,sfx,style and substance all in one package.No wonder this is studied in films schools all around the world. For the sci fi fan this is a... Read more definitive and timeless take on philip k dick's classic novel and I never tire of watching it- still gleaning gold after 27 years of watching it!
Golden classic sci-fiction. Amazing apocalyptic vision of future. Nobody still could beat it, they just repeat after Ridley. Pity he did not make anything else better than this one.
This film is still one of the all time favourites. It has a feel that seemed so ahead of its time and almost real. Rutger Hauer plays a stirring role. His rooftop scene is one of the movie greats. Also... Read more look out for a young Daryl Hannah in this film, she plays the main female replicant. I agree with Rotoguy#1 that the director's cut is the only way to go with this film.
So if you like your sci-fi then this is one of the classics, and greatest, give it a go.
Boring, simplistic and outdated. There must be a small number of people that like this sort of concept, but if you aren't one of them you'll fall into a state of catatonia rather quickly. Good acting, awful storyline.
Still one of the best scifi movies I have ever watched for story line acting and visuals, I rate this very highly and think every one should watch
This film is a classic of the genre, but I have given it only 4 stars because I prefer the original thatrical release with Harrison Ford's narration. Better still would be Ford's narration AND the... Read more extra footage in the Director's Cut, but I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too.
