The Blade Runner examines the frailties of civilization.On the the one side you have humans who have replicants to attend their every need and the replicants themselves who have evolved enough to realise that they are servants to their human masters.Is it right to terminate them the same way as one would another human.Harrison Ford's character has to wrestle with this question as he finds himself falling in love with a relicant.Who is human and who isn't that is the question
Blade Runner The Directors Cut

This film made in 1991? is set in 2019. It is quite futuristic and has stood the test of time. It is quite entertaining to study what was perceived as being futurtistic 16 years ago. Being a Harrison Ford fan I did enjoy the fact that he appears in nearly every scene of this film. But he seems to be playing the same type of character in just different centuries! The lighting seems always to be dark and it also always seems to be raining. An enjoyable film.

A film I had great expectations of when I sat down to watch it. Unfortunately, it failed to live up to what I expected. I am a sci-fi fan, but this came across as a bit of a mess. It presents a totally joyless vision of the future, and the final fight scene made me burst out laughing for all the wrong reasons. All in all, a disappointment.

Its hard to believe this film is 26 years old(1982). If you any way into a strange world of sci-fi and you imagination, rent this.
I watched it 3 times, just to enjoy the surroundings and the future view of a americian city, is interesing to say the least.
Nuff said. You will either love it or hate it!

Watching the movie again after ten years was a revelation! Romance, action and a thought-provoking plot exploring the nature of humanity itself. Doesn't sound like a lot of fun from that description, but give it a chance-you won't be disappointed!
