"Visual & Auditory Delight"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have both, Blu-ray and DVD of this movie, not only has the Blu-ray version been so well re-mastered but the added edition of all the behind the scenes makes this move a true “Must Have” for Sc-Fi buffs, what a step up for Blu-ray over the standard format of DVD. Colour rich environments and a soundtrack by Vangelis immerse you into the vision of Ridley Scott. You either love or loath this movie but Ridley Scott's futuristic adaptation of the book “Do androids dream of electric sheep” has made us (when originally made) think of the future, what would it be like?. Set in a rain soaked Los Angeles with monolithic skyscrapers reaching in to the dull night sky, the busy streets, the packed alley ways brings life and a realism to the where Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) a retired “Blade Runner” has been called upon to hunt down four replicants (Original movie says there were five) replicants are artificial humans.

"Superb re-issue of a timeless classic."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Having watched Bladerunner when it first hit the movies in the early 80's it has always been a favourite. The DVD final cut version was a big step up with 5.1 sound for the first time, but this Blu Ray version is simply superb. You would never believe that this was shot over 25 years ago, the colours are lush and the hi def detail just adds so much to make the experience like seeing it for the first time. I never realised Rachel's dress was blue, it always looked black to me in DVD. Little details like this give a feeling of realism. If you like Bladerunner, you will love it in Blu Ray!

"Stunning"
5 stars"

Ridley Scott is well knowen for his visual style when telling a story for the big screen and with his follow up to Alien he pulls out all the stops with Blade Runner.There have been 3 previous versions of the movie released but this is the directors vision of how he wanted the movie to be seen on its release. The 1080p transfer is stunning,the soundtrack remixed fills your entire room and Ridley Scotts attention to detail is incredible,an interesting note to finish,20th Century Fox is currently in talks with both Scott and a certain female actress about (yes believe it or not) returning to finish the Alien saga,one can only imagine should Scott have as much passion as he did for the original what he might serve up for the final chapter.

Description

Man Has Made His Match… Now It's His Problem.

Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) prowls the steel-and-microchip jungle of 21st-century Los Angeles. He’s a “blade runner” stalking genetically made criminal replicants. His assignment: kill them. Their crime: wanting to be human.

In celebration of the Blade Runner 25th anniversary, director Ridley Scott has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version, unveiled on DVD in December.

Said Sir Ridley Scott: "The Final Cut is the product of a process that began in early 2000 and continued off and on through seven years of intense research and meticulous restoration, technical challenges, amazing discoveries and new possibilities. I can now wholeheartedly say that Blade Runner: The Final Cut is my definitive director's cut of the film."
