Overview

Ridley Scott's celebrated sci-fi classic stars Harrison Ford as retired 21st Century Detective Rick Deckard, who is forced back into active duty in order to hunt a fugitive band of human-like androids known as "replicants" though the rain-soaked streets of L.A. After meeting with the eccentric Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel), creator of the replicants, Deckard finds and eliminates Zhora (Joanna Cassidy) before coming under attack by the powerful Leon (Brion James). Deckard is about to be killed by Leon when he's saved by Rachael (Sean Young), Tyrell's assistant and a replicant who's unaware of her true nature. In the meantime, replicant leader Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) and his pleasure model lover, Pris (Darryl Hannah) use a dying inventor, J.F. Sebastian (William Sanderson) to get close to Tyrell and murder him. Deckard tracks the pair to Sebastian's, where a bloody and violent final confrontation between Deckard and Batty takes place on a skyscraper rooftop high above the city. This digitally re-mastered version of the film features extended scenes and improved visual effects approved by the director in order to better reflect his original vision.

    I, too, miss the ending narration. This is one of the few times I think the studio's opinion was better than the director's.

    Let's hear it for that awful narration going bye-bye!!

    When Blade Runner came out in 1982 I was befuddled by the almost unbarable "narration". The images are beautiful, the story imaginative but that narration killed it for me. Then I learned that Ford hated the narration and vowed to do as bad a job as possible so that the studio couldn't use it. This just goes to prove what yutzes Most studio heads are. Even though Forf gave a zombie like voicover they decided to keep it in the film. It wasn't until they released the director's cut in 1992 that I realized just exactly what a wonderful film this is. I hate to be negative but those people who prefer the original are just wrong, wrong, wrong. This film is now what it needed to be when it was released and I'm just as pleased as punch

    I want the Original !

    Why not offer both the Voice over and the directors cut? I like the original much better. This film is the closest I have come to some of my weird dreams. Dreamlike and mesmerizing. Rutger - absolutly nasty and wonderful at the same time. The menace he projects... "Not an easy man to see, I guess." True adult Science Fiction with not an Ewok in the house.
