      Blade Runner Reviews

      This movie loses track of the few expectations it sets up, and the formlessness adds to a viewer's demoralization -- the film itself seems part of the atmosphere of decay.

      Rutger Hauer's "tears in the rain" monologue is just about the greatest science-fiction monologue to ever exist.

      Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), the ‘blade runner’ assigned to hunt them down, is a noirish antihero – really little more than a slave catcher and cold-blooded assassin – with his own humanity being repeatedly called into question.

      It’s an overwhelming, immersive experience, a total creation of a possible future so complete that you don’t need exposition to know how we got from here (whether release date 1982 or whenever you manage to see it) to there (Scott’s 2019).

      A masterpiece.

      Philip K. Dicks frequent exploration of perceived realities that begin to breakdown upon inspection, and thus define the fragile, shattered nature of existence and humanity, is brought to awe-inspiring life through Blade Runner.

      A disjointed, implausible sci-film so trapped in photographic maneuvers that it's lifeless.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Nov 11, 2021

      One of the more imaginative and less realized movies of this or any year. Scott directs as if he were a doctor about to deliver some giant conception, and never once notices that this mountain of a movie is giving birth to little more than a mouse.

      Ridley Scott ought to be a set decorator, rather than a director. In Blade Runner, he loses sight of the story while devoting all his attention to decor and lighting. The decor and lighting, it must be admitted, are stupendous.

      Some of us saw it and loved it early. Some of us saw it later in life or in broken forms before coming to love or respect it.

      If a machine thinks independently, feels, and even loves, is it alive? How do we decide who/what deserves a chance at life and freedom? Blade Runner doesn't answer those questions...but it does make you think.

      Without a doubt a seminal film for the science fiction genre. Ahead of its time, Ridley Scott gave us a visually stunning, mind-bending and soul-searching masterpiece. [Full review in Spanish]

      Everything, from the punkish clothing to the compact gadgetry, comments wittily on the present while also establishing a coherent future.

      The set designs and overall look of the film are nothing short of inspired.

      Full Review | Original Score: 10/10 | Aug 31, 2020

      This is one of the great visions ever put on screen, a massive and formative illustration of world building.

      The score by Vangelis amplifies the emotion of every scene seamlessly, and enough can't be said about the production design by Lawrence G. Paull and visual effects by Douglas Trumbull.

      Visual flair, philosophical substance, and kick-ass action can come together to make an entertaining and artistically compelling movie. Blade Runner proved that.

      Full Review | Feb 28, 2020

      Still profound 18 years after its sell-by date, Blade Runner remains worthy of acclaim and analysis even as it exists in a "future" with very little resemblance to the one that came to pass.

      Blade Runner at times seems more like a television advertisement than a serious movie. [Full Review in Spanish]

      The whole film is very well crafted and a wonderful sci-fi dystopian movie.
