Movie synopsis
Twenty-five years after the initial release of BLADE RUNNER, director Ridley Scott uses archival footage to re-create his original vision for the sci-fi classic. Based on a story by Philip K. Dick, the film is set in Los Angeles in 2019. Earth has become a polluted and miserable dystopia, and many people have fled to live "Off World" on other planets. This dreary vision of the future features replicants: lifelike robots built as slaves for human use. When a replicant escapes his owner, a "blade runner" is called in to hunt him down and kill him. Enter Harrison Ford as the retired blade runner Rick Deckard. He is pulled out of retirement to help catch four escaped replicants: Batty (Rutger Hauer), Leon (Brion James), Pris (Darryl Hannah), and Zhora (Joanna Cassidy.) Despite his distaste for the job, Deckard is soon hot on their heels, tracking them down one by one through the over-crowded, crumbling city streets. In the midst of his hunt, Deckard becomes involved with a beautiful replicant named Rachael (Sean Young). Rachel has fled her owner, and Deckard rightfully should kill her. However, the two fall in love, and after some startling revelations, they are both soon on the run from the very authorities that once employed Deckard.This final cut is a bleaker, more cynical version of an already dark film, which might explain why the studio insisted on a softer, more optimistic ending when it was first released. While some superfans might take issue with some of the revelatory new twists, they will no doubt delight in the quality of the digital restoration. The special effects were already impressive for 1982, but these new touch-ups give them a look that appears just as sharp and imaginative as the sci-fi films of today.

Editorial reviews

5 stars out of 5 -- "From the tiny details, such as the funky novelty umbrellas with their neon stems, to jaw-dropping vistas like the opening, fire-belching cityscape, it remains an unparalleled visual achievement."

No more redundant voice-over narration !

When Ridley Scott's cut of Blade Runner was finally released in 1993, one had to wonder why the studio hadn't done it right the first time--11 years earlier. This version is so much better, mostly because of what's been eliminated (the ludicrous and redundant voice-over narration and the phony happy ending) rather than what's been added (a bit more character development and a brief unicorn dream). Star Harrison Ford originally recorded the narration under duress at the insistence of Warner Bros. executives who thought the story needed further "explanation"; he later confessed that he thought if he did it badly they wouldn't use it. (Moral: Never overestimate the taste of movie executives.) The movie's spectacular futuristic vision of Los Angeles--a perpetually dark and rainy metropolis that's the nightmare antithesis of "Sunny Southern California"--is still its most seductive feature, an otherworldly atmosphere in which you can immerse yourself. The movie's shadowy visual style, along with its classic private-detective/murder-myste​ry plot line (with Ford on the trail of a murderous android, or "replicant"), makes Blade Runner one of the few science fiction pictures to legitimately claim a place in the film noir tradition. And, as in the best noir, the sleuth discovers a whole lot more (about himself and the people he encounters) than he anticipates.... With Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer, and M. Emmet Walsh.

In celebration of Blade Runner's 25th anniversary, director Ridley Scott has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version. Blade Runner: The Final Cut, spectacularly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution, will contain never-before-seen added/extended scenes, added lines, new and improved special effects, director and filmmaker commentary, an all-new 5.1 Dolby® Digital audio track and more. Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Edward James Olmos, Joanna Cassidy, Sean Young, and Daryl Hannah are among some 80 stars, filmmakers and others who participate in the extensive bonus features. Among the bonus material highlights is Dangerous Days, a brand new, three-and-a-half-hour documentary by award-winning DVD producer Charles de Lauzirika, with an extensive look into every aspect of the film: its literary genesis, its challenging production and its controversial legacy. The definitive documentary to accompany the definitive film version.

Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner returns in Ridley Scott's definitive Final Cut, including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects. In a signature role as 21st-century detective Rick Deckard, Harrison Ford brings his masculine-yet-vulnerable presence to this stylish noir thriller. In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Deckard hunts for fugitive, muderous replicants - and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul. This incredible 2-Disc Set features the definitive Final Cut of Ridley Scott's legendary Sci-Fi classic and the in-depth feature length documentary "Dangerous Days" and features all new 5.1 Audio.

The Final Cut, the last straw

Blade Runner will always be one of my all time favorites. A timeless favorite. But I will admit, I was sucked in by Editor's Cut and of course, by the final cut and I was more and more disappointed. The Editor's Cut stripped away the scene by scene narrative by Harrison Ford from the first release which lent an unmistakeable fifties gumshoe flavor to a futuristic detective-like drama. I feel the narration gave more dimension to the film and irrevocably so in the last scene on the rooftop when Roy Batty gave his final dying soliloqy. That was a powerful moment and I don't think that Deckard's editorialization detracted from it one bit.
I had high hopes for this final cut but they were dashed as well. What did we get? A couple more glimpses of the city street life, the unicorn again, so what? Neither this final cut nor the editor's cut did anything to enrich our understanding of the characters or the interplay between them. I'm sorry, but did I miss something there? I'd have had more hopes for a sequel, but not this.
I'll be generous and give it an average rating. Stick with the first release, it is by far the best work.

Simply awesome

All time classic movie that should be watched over and over again. Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Darryl Hannah, Edward James Olmos, Sean Young; many actors/actresses who starred in this great movie before they became widely popular. Special effects were ahead of it's time, atmospheric, great story line & editing. If you've never seen this movie, you are missing out.

All time favorite movie

Ridley Scott's vision of the future was so precise. At the time I was a teenager, young to know what imagination was , young to realize that sci fi was going to be one of the biggest things in our Entertainment, since LOGAN's RUN. I love every sequence and the visuals, which stimulates my dimensions and opens up the reality of how our future can possibly become. Our passion and desire is always for change. But when the change comes , it's how we embrace it, not how we hunt it down...........RIDLEY SCOTT, in SCI FI is a GENIUS...........Great vision...................

FUTURE NOW !!

When I first saw this as a kid in Theaters 1982, 1984(?), I thought it was OK, wasn't too impressed. But the more you watch this movie, the better it gets!! It's truly a ground breaker, the special affects compares to what is made today! The story line amazing, the actors kick butt! It's a movie all sci-fi fanatics should have in there video library!

Peace,
