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)
An exceptional film; not at all what I expected. For those in the younger generations, there are specific pieces that make this film intriguing; signs such as Atari or Pan Am dot the film, lending eerie splashes of color to a otherwise dark-hued dystopian future. A great performance by Ford et al. I give the movie four stars because I think it would be much better on a larger screen. If you have a friend with a 60", take advantage.
text book sci-fi. Still cant be matched or topped. Id say the greatest sci-fi film of all time & for the next hundred years. Cant believe it came out in 82
The best cut of this film and the most fully realized creation, sometimes it takes time to perfect a masterpiece and the Final Cut makes it's mark and should remain the definitive version that should be viewed and studied.
