Blade Runner (The Final Cut) Reviews
I've said so before that I'm a sucker for science fiction films and this one was no walk in the park. It may have its slow paced scenes but the environments, the landscapes, the scenery makes it all up for being one of the greatest films of all time. Harrison Ford is one of my favorite actors and he's been in a lot of good movies but this is just legendary.
The soundtrack is wonderful and aesthetic. It goes well with the futuristic theme of the movie and it gives you the feeling of such eerie and fantasy. One thing that I love about this that the plot somehow redefined itself and its pace makes things more interesting time and time again. It pulls you into knowing why replicants are doing this while Deckard struggles the emotions he gets towards them. Especially towards woman. Rutger Hauer who played the antagonist named Roy Batty gave the most wonderful performance throughout the movie, especially at the end.
The movie interprets life unlike other and the usual between man and machine. Where two clash each other and two are misunderstood but you know in the end, it's all because co-existing is part of the problem. No one cooperates and everyone believes they're doing the right thing.
I've seen both the director's cut and the final cut of the movie and I gotta say, I prefer the final cut of the movie. It's more rigid and more precise. While others prefer to the director's cut, it's safe to say that anyone have their own personal preferences to anything and this is one of them.
With Blade Runner 2049 coming up, there's no doubt that returning to the neo-noir cyberpunk theme will probably bring it back to motion once again. As I love such a theme and hopefully it'll bring in more people having a new interest towards it.
There's a lot of cuts of this film: theatrical cut, directors cut... FINAL cut. They only thing these different editions have in common is they're all a waste of your damn. time.
