Blade Runner: Final Cut

Blade Runner: Final Cut

Some filmmakers just love to fiddle, and Ridley Scott is one of the worst fiddlers in the business. This is (allegedly) the final, definitive cut of his already near iconic 1982 sci fi classic. In any version this great movie is well worth catching on the big screen.

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.
