BLADE RUNNER (Theatrical Release USA 1982/2007 Final Cut)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Blade Runner
—the 2007 final cut edition—has camera angles; depth of lighting; many, many forms of lighting; and fantastic, futuristic city light views that make it stand out far above the crowd of other movies in its cinematography. Technique literally overpowers the screen as if the screen can never be large enough to hold its richness. The story, even now (2019), is far ahead of its time and takes heavy mental processing and close attention to detail to keep up with its complicated plot. Even the names of the robots, Replicants, seems far advanced for its original time of production. This is a terrific watch, a classic for all sci fi movie fans. It is beyond ‘Great’ work for Director Ridley Scott and demands an immediate second viewing to catch the depth, meaning, and overall impact of its story.
