Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner returns in Ridley Scott's definitive FinalCut, including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects. In a signature role as 21st-century detective Rick Deckard, Harrison Ford brings his masculine-yet-vulnerable presence to this stylish noir thriller. In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Deckard hunts for fugitive, murderous replicants - and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul.

But I remember the noir opening and costuming as an effective counterpoint to the rest of the film. I didn't think it was false - I thought it was more of a red herring. You mind assumes this is going to be about bending the law, resisting the fem fatale, surviving and ultimately foiling the bag guys, and getting the girl - at least temporarily. But then you find out that that pattern only partially applies, which I thought was kind of cool and transformational in the original.
OTOH, if you see it for the 2nd, 3rd, etc time, you know the Noir voice over at the beginning is about where the character starts, his initial way of thinking and you know it isn't where he is going to end. It might seem a little gratuitous whereas the Directors and Final Cut versions don't put as much Noir spin on the character or the film so you have more time to reflect on the action as it actually unfolds, not as it either fits or breaks from the Film Noir mold.
I have to agree with the reviewer that says you should own both versions. I bought this primarily to introduce my children to the classic. I probably should have bought the theatrical release for that (first time viewing) because without knowing where the movie is going, this version is a very slow developer and just ins't grabbing their interest. I like it, but even I want to see the other version to make direct comparisons.
