"A Stylish Noir Thriller"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Blade Runner (1982), rising director Ridley Scott's follow-up to his hit Alien (1979), is one of the most popular and influential science-fiction films of all time – and it has become an enduring cult classic favorite. But the enthralling film was originally a box-office financial failure, and it received negative reviews from film critics who called it muddled and baffling. It also wasn't encouraging that it faced Spielberg's E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) during its opening release.

The main character in Blade Runner is a weary, former police officer/bounty hunter who is reluctantly dispatched by the state to search for four android replicants (robotic NEXUS models) that have been created with limited life spans (a built-in fail-safe mechanism in case they became too human). [Dustin Hoffman and many other actors were considered for the role of the title character, blade-runner Deckard.] The genetically-engineered renegades have escaped from enslaving conditions on an Off-World outer planet. Driven by fear, they have come to Earth to locate their creator and force him to prolong their short lives. The film's theme, the difficult quest for immortality, is supplemented by an ever-present eye motif – there are various VK eye tests, an Eye Works factory, and other symbolic references to eyes as being the window to the soul. Scott's masterpiece also asks the veritable question: what does it mean to be truly human? One of its main posters advertised the tagline: “MAN HAS MADE HIS MATCH – NOW IT'S HIS PROBLEM.”

"Finally Blade Runner the way the Director wanted it"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

When pushed to name my favourite movie I chose Blade Runner. I've seen every version and for me this is the best. Gone is the stupid voiceover and the [spoiler alert] totally fake happy ending. It's just Blade Runner in all it's rain-drenched glory.

"Wow"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I had never seen this movie before I bought it off Mighty Ape and I had never really thought about it. I heard from many people that it was a brilliant movie but that you have to watch it twice to like it. I was sceptically excited for the movie because of what they had said. When I sat down to watch it I was immediately hooked and remained hooked for the whole movie.

This movie does not look like it was made in 1982 the special effects/models are perfect and draw you into the story.

The movie is also very deep and philosophical. Questioning what it means to be human and saying that just because someone has committed a crime, it doesn't mean they are a bad person or unjust.

I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in a good sci-fi movie, who likes complex plots but I would not recommend it to someone who only likes relentless action in movies as these movie verges more to plot then action scene after action scene.

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."
