Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Frank Lovece
One of the most beautiful and visually influential science-fiction films ever made, Blade Runner established a futuristic film-noir style that combines and transcends the sci-fi and detective genres while pondering the nature of what it means to be human. Set in 2019, Los Angeles, director Ridley Scott's adaptation of author Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? stars Harrison Ford as world-weary android-hunter Rick Deckard, who slogs through the nightmarishly run-down, overcrowded urban dystopia that L.A. has devolved into, attempting to find and kill four escaped "replicants" -- physically superior artificial people bred for slavery. In the process of his investigation, he falls in love with a next-generation replicant (Sean Young), who is initially unaware that her human "memory" is largely implanted. Rutger Hauer, as the dangerous yet tragic replicant leader, and William Sanderson, as and infirmed, soul-burdened tinkerer who helped design the androids, turn in performances as stunning as the film's production design. For Blade Runner: The Director's Cut (1992), Scott removed Ford's noir-ish narration, changed the happily-ever-after ending (which had been added at the studios insistence), and added a short, dreamlike scene involving a unicorn that expanded Deckard's unspoken anxiety over his own murky nativity.
