Blade Runner: The Final Cut

M, 117 mins, Sci-fi, Thriller

Blade Runner has gone on to be one of the most divisive science fiction movies of all time as Ridley Scott directs Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard; a blade runner who has to track down and terminate four replicants who hijacked a ship in space and have returned to earth seeking their maker. Scott's Final cut is digitally remastered with improved visual and sound effects, and with numerous revisions to the 1992 Director's Cut: The voice-over narration has been dropped and the ending has been changed. The special effects have been spruced up and there are no unlikely CGI characters inserted into the action. Instead some wires from which a "spinner" craft is dangling has been removed, the woman crashing through several panes of glass now is actually Johanna Cassidy and not a stunt woman who doesn't look like her at all. A backdrop to the dove being released by Rutger Hauer has been changed. Purists will fret and fume, but others may feel the movie has been improved by these minor changes.
