About the Movie
The #1 Sci-Fi Film of all time! 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, murderous replicants - and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul. This incredible version features the definitive Final Cut of Ridley Scott's legendary Sci-Fi classic.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Perhaps on its deepest level, "Blade Runner" explores ... a theme as old as Genesis and the myth of Prometheus, and iterated in "Paradise Lost," Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," and in Blake's arcane, visionary mythology.
Fresh: This remains an astonishing achievement: a Dystopian sci-fi epic that is also one of the best film noirs of recent times.
Fresh: "Blade Runner is a film set 40 years hence, made in the style of 40 years ago," Ridley Scott said of his celebrated science-fiction noir. Perhaps that other-worldly "retrofitted" look is why it seems ageless, despite being set in 2019.
Fresh: Another chance to savour its pure unhurried strangeness, beginning with that bizarre vista of 2019 LA, with four tall buildings mysteriously belching fire-plumes into the night like apocalyptic oil rigs.
Where's the version with Harrison Ford's narration? The anniversary addition should include both.
After all these years the Directors Cut and all the extra footage don't make up for not including the narrative from the original version.
Still not Sold
One of the best movies ever with the narration. I may be one of the few, but I have always preferred the theatrical release with the narration.
Needs the theatrical cut!
This would be a five star review if iTunes would acquire the theatrical cut for us to buy. There are many of us that actually prefer that version (although the final cut is very good).
