Abstract:
Los Angeles, 2019: Rick Deckard of the LAPD's Blade Runner unit prowls the steel & microchip jungle of the 21st century. His job is to track down and eliminate assumed humanoids known as 'replicants.' Replicants were declared illegal after a bloody mutiny on an Off-World Colony, and are to be terminated upon detection. He wants to get out of the force, but is drawn back in when 6 "skin jobs," the slang for replicants, hijack a ship back to Earth. The city that Deckard must search for his prey is a huge, sprawling, bleak vision of the future. This 2007 "final cut" was remastered with improved visual and sound effects, and made some revisions to the 1992 "director's cut" revision.

Summary

Summary

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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
