Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★½

The director's cut.

Intelligent sci-fi. Harrison Ford plays Deckard, a replicant exterminator (or is he?); the replicants are Daryl Hannah, Sean Young, Brion James, and best of all, Rutger Hauer - who gets the best closing speech, all that guff about lights and stars. The other replicants are ok, particularly Hannah with her wild hair and her acrobatic attacks.

Blade Runner looks great in its futuristic, claustrophobic bubble, and even Ford's cardboard acting can't spoil the mix. The director's cut removes his dull narration and is the better for it. This movie is reasonably intelligent science fiction, involving and interesting. It has images which linger long in the memory years after seeing it.
