Critic Reviews for Blade Runner (The Final Cut)
The single most immersive and tactile world ever created for the cinema.
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.
Ford, with his Star Wars cachet, was Blade Runner's top-line draw, but it's Hauer's movie all the way, his shimmering "replicant" providing the tonal touchstone for Ridley Scott's severally reworked masterpiece.
This remains an astonishing achievement: a Dystopian sci-fi epic that is also one of the best film noirs of recent times.
"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.
Audience Reviews for Blade Runner (The Final Cut)
Absolutely perfect. Ridley Scott didn't cut corners with this edited version. It's practically flawless and really improves the cult classic's quality.
I've always struggled this one. I've seen the original cut, then I saw the Director's cut in the 90's and now I've seen the "Final Cut". It's an interesting Sci-Fi Noir. It's really hard for me what to make of this movie. It has very cool special effects for it's time, but then I find myself not really caring what is happening on the screen. I struggle with this one, but I ultimately give it 4 stars.
Simply put, no other film can possibly compare with it's aesthetic. The cinematography combined with an ambient soundtrack provided by Vangelis creates an atmosphere as deep as the plot. Go to any film school and you can expect to spend a good week talking about this movie. Despite being a product of 1982, it hasn't aged a minute and modern contemporaries fail miserably in contrast. There are precious few movies of this caliber and I know several people who claim it as their all time favorite film. It's certainly in my top 3. This isn't a star wars type of science fiction. Ridley Scott said he wanted this movie, "Dripping with graphics" (of the non-digital variety) and did he ever deliver! While other films show a futuristic set seemingly built the day before, Blade Runner shows an incredibly "lived in" world. Rife with the imperfections of human nature, yet gorgeous in it's moments. Words can't truly describe the depth of this film. A once in a lifetime movie truly. It holds the crown to most sampled movie in music, which should come as no surprise to any who have seen it. If you haven't seen Blade Runner (I've seen it the better part of a hundred times), you're in for a wonderful treat. Sit back...and soak up all that this legendary film has to offer!
