"Blade Runner" remains a visually impressive and influential sci-fi noir in spite of a plot that moves at a snail's pace.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die." One of my all time favourite scenes from any movie ever. I've watched the "Tears in Rain" monologue about a billion times by now. It's a scene where Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) leans humanity from someone who isn't human. Rutger Hauer, I love you man.

(Basing my review off of the original theatrical cut) An intelligent genre mix of the 'narrating detective' noir and grand SFX sci-fi. This is a visual marvel! The effects, costume, and set design, are still enthralling in today's CG heavy cinema. The story has a dark and mysterious tone that pulls you into it's bizarrely believable world. Like all great sci-fi, the film asks some big or moral questions. Those seem to only be hinted at and not as prevalent to the characters or plot, which gets action heavy in the latter half. I feel those ideas will probably be explored more in the other various 'cuts' of the film. The original version, as it stands, is a great piece of entertainment worth revisiting.

Blade Runner has a brilliantly intense and controversial subject matter. Dystopian and utopic, totalitarian futuristic cities is a concept that has been treated several times since we have memory, but this is one of the first American films that dares to take that vision one step forward, adapting it to the pop-culture necessities of the time.
The highlights of the movie are:
- The weakness of the human condition.
- The search for a reason of human existence.
- The fear of lacking the ability to comprehend what doesn't belong to our race.
- Mankind's total subordination and dependence towards technology.
- An overall depressing and dark atmosphere (mood) and desolate way of life.
- Lack of nature and beauty.
This film deserves a cult-status respect: it portrays a …

Our Daily Free Strem: Ridley Scott - Blade Runner. Ob wir wollen oder nicht; das Remake von Dennis Villeneuve schreitet langsam voran. Hier das Original. - Das ist also "Jetzt", die Zukunft. Die Autos sehen aus wie Boxen, doch immer noch wird so etwas wie Rock'n Roll im Radio gespielt. Blade Runner eröffnet eine Zukunft 2020 in Los Angeles. L.A. sieht aus wie Tokyo und tatsächlich trinkt ein japanisches Mädchen Coca Cola. Immerhin: Es sieht sensationell aus! Die Wolkenkatzer sind noch ein Stück gewachsen und die Menschen fahren umher in Vehikles, die alles können. Fahren, fliegen, klettern. L.A., ein urbaner Dschungel. Durch die "Mean Streets", die wir kein Mal bei Tageslicht sehen, streift Harrison Ford. Er sucht eine Gruppe Replikanten, die aus der Off-World geflohen sind. Er ist …

When four artificial humans return to Earth to seek their maker and extend their lifespans, an ex-"Blade Runner" is sent in pursuit to "retire" them. Based on a story by Philip K. Dick, Blade Runner is a true watershed in the evolution of science fiction cinema. It's one of the most visually influential films ever made and although William Gibson's novel Neuromancer is often cited as the birth of "Cyberpunk", he freely admits that Ridley Scott did it first. Although most cyberpunk influenced movies look very silly in this day and age, Scott's future detective story created its own sub-genre (often referred to as "tech-noir") by skillfully blending the format of Film Noir with the visual trappings of science fiction making for an immersive world that is the melting pot of styles and …
