Plot Summary

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. The story of Blade Runner is familiar to countless fans. But few have seen it like this. Because this is director Ridley Scott's own vision of his sci-fi classic. This new version omits Deckard's voice narration, develops in slightly greater detail the romance between Deckard and Rachael (Sean Young) and removes the "uplifting" finale. The result is a heightened emotional impact: a great film made greater. Most intriguing of all is a newly included unicorn vision that suggests that Deckard may be a humanoid. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Is Deckard a replicant? As with all things in the future, you must discover the answer yourself.

"A Classic"

One of the all time classic sci-fi films, with outstanding direction by Ridley Scott and awesome visual effects. it also has a tremendous performance by Harrison Ford and a truly dazzling star-making performance by Rutger Hauer. it is a film not to be missed!.

Classic

When I first read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick, originally published in 1968 I never would have dreamed someone would try to put it to film. When it came out on film my life was complete. ;) The film even leaves you with the same questons the book did. Worth every penny for such a masterful rendition!

Perhaps...

...the greatest sci-fi flick ever made. 'Nuff said?
