NO SPOILERS. Intro: This review will be aimed at viewers who have not seen this film. It's undoubtedly a masterpiece and Ridley Scott's best. I'm talking about the Final Cut, and having seen all cuts, watch the final one; By FAR the best. I say it's the best sci-fi because I believe the originals Star Wars trilogy is science fantasy. Advice: This needs to be watched multiple tiles. The first time I watched it, I split into two nights as my Dad said, the first hour one night, then the second hour the next. The first time I watched the first hour, I wasn't convinced by the hype. I saw great visuals, sets and characters, but a confusing theme. It couldn't be identified. I paused after an hour with aspects I did like a lot, but with a few small queries. The second night, I was engrossed. I loved everything about it. The next night I watched the full thing. And my goodness it is amazing. Main advice - Watch at night when dark. It gets you in the mood for the film. What's so great: Simply, it's the fantastic main character and Harrison Ford, an iconic score, Rachel, Roy Batty, and the visuals and overall look of the film. It may be slow, but the slowness results in an excellent sense of catharsis for me. It engrosses me. I feel like I am Rick Deckard. Highlights: The opening titles, Deckard meeting Rachel, Deckard's hunt and investigation, and Roy's famous monologue. Conclusion: One of my favourite films and has a deservedly great fandom. The anti-hero (?), Rick Deckard is brilliant. Harrison Ford is a guy's hero for all ages; Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. A tremendous film with a brilliant look to it and an even more brilliant story. I love every second. 10/10


Blade Runner is considered one of the greatest science fiction films ever made and it is easy to see why. Deeply thematic, rich characters, a fantastic script and nuanced performances toppled with some of the greatest cinematography ever put on film this is a film version of the mona lisa- every frame can be hung on a wall. Ridley Scott, fresh off the success of Alien is in top form and Blade Runner will be the film he will always be remembered for. Harrison Ford is competent as Deckard and anyone expecting him to be the usual dashing hero will be disappointed. Rutger Hauer steals the show as head replicant Roy Batty. The noir look of the film has inspired so many movies and video games since there isn't really a point talking about it- you have to see it to believe it. One of the greatest films ever made. Period.


A milestone in sci-fi movies. No human eating monsters, no dark shadows that prey humans, no blood splashing scenes. A hymn to the purest aspects of real psych which conquers even man-made androids. A link between intellect and the very essence of human existence .


Bladerunner is my favorite movie because its so immersive and the noir ambiance takes you into another world no matter how surreal. I never thought Decker was a replicant never even thought of it until all the hype from the new film which does a great job too :)
