Defining Moment: Tears in the Rain speech or Gaff's last line of the film is pretty awesome, "It's too bad she won't live; but then again, who does?"
Harrison Ford is great! Blade Runner is visually stunning and thematically complex. Good action at times as well. All who act in this film are pretty awesome especially Rutger Hauer who plays Roy, such a deep complex character who adds so much to this film when he is on screen.
With those highs I would also mention that at times this movie is slow-paced and can quickly lose a person who is not paying attention.
Can't help but say I was wrong when it came to Blade Runner, this is my 3rd viewing and it is a classic! At first this film does come across bland and cheesy (maybe due to the version I previously had) but I must say with undivided attention it is a Sci-Fi masterpiece. I leave all previous comments on this site to remind myself not to be too arrogant again in damning a movie straight-off.
Harrison Ford is motivated and it is amazing to watch his perception change when it comes to the Replicants, especially in that final scene. The constant question about what is life and who are truly human is ever at present in this film and that question is still left in the balance at the end of the film.
