Theodore Bond’s review published on Letterboxd:
Blade Runner may not of been the most well received movie ever when it first came out and barely made its budget back which may of been a huge surprise with Ridley Scott directing and even more so with Harrison Ford starring but lets face it this movie was way ahead of its time and after all was said and done this movie is now regarded as one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time and no one remembers how much money it did or didn't make just that it is a damn fantastic movie which at the end of the day is all that matters.
Harrison Ford, who may of been the biggest star in the world at the time this came out thanks to his roles as Han Solo and Indiana Jones brought his A-Game here again in Blade Runner as Rick Deckard who along with Han Solo may go down as one of the greatest sci-fi action heroes of all time but for completely different reasons. Deckard is a far cry from Solo as he is a Blade Runner, a cop that specializes in hunting down human clones called replicants.
Ridley Scott brings his A-Game here as well, and was on a great role here with Blade Runner sandwiched between Alien and Legend all three of which are incredible movies all for their own reasons. It just went to prove just how amazing and versatile a director Scott actually is.
The special effects in Blade Runner are all top notch as well and in my opinion it not only rivals the special effects in most movies today but leaves a majority of them in the dust. The look of this movie is just astounding and much like Star Wars it gives us a look into a future very lived in world, that said though this world couldn't be more different than the ones seen in Star Wars.
Overall Blade Runner is one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time and I think that is this is something that would be very hard to argue. If you haven't checked it out yet then you have no idea what your missing and you need to do so right away. I give Blade Runner a 9 out of 10.
