Blade Runner: The Final Cut – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I like Blade Runner. I rewatched it today in it’s Final Cut form (a version I’ve never seen before). It’s a great film for sure, visually stunning and unquestionably groundbreaking .  BUT and this is a BIG but… the story isn’t that great and worse still Decker is pretty useless as a character (Come on he lucks in at almost every turn). Controversially I also think the music is WAY to intrusive throughout and dates the film much more than the visuals or FX which hold up well. I can see why it’s classic to many and it’s influence has been vast. BUT not in my top 50 films, maybe even not in my Top 100.

Best Bit: “Ive seen…”

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Blade Runner 2049, Alien, Strange Days
