Science Fiction at Its Finest
Considered to be the top sci-fi thriller of all time, Blade Runner is now available in this incomparable 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition. Blade Runner tells the story of Rick Deckard, a futuristic LAPD cop who has gone into retirement. As a member of the Blade Runner unit, his specialty was hunting down and eliminating artificially made humans. So when four of these replicants escape an intergalactic colony and head for Earth, Deckard is forced back to work to terminate them. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford as Deckard, Blade Runner is a must-have in every film library.
The Burmese python handled by character Zhora in the film was actress Joanna Cassidy’s real-life pet (named Darling).
Ridley Scott’s first cut of the film was four hours long.
To create the 'shining eye' effect, the film used what is known as the Schüfftan process, in which light is bounced off a specially made mirror into the actor’s eyes.
Rutger Hauer improvised the now-famous line 'All those moments will be lost in time'.
There are only 90 special effects shots in the entire film.

It is, in fact, an amazingly sophisticated, sumptuously visionary treatise on the consequences of attaining god-hood. --Rita Kempley, The Washington Post
The view of the future offered by Ridley Scott's muddled yet mesmerizing ''Blade Runner'' is as intricately detailed as anything a science-fiction film has yet envisioned. --The New York Times, Janet Maslin

This movie is awesome and now with such crystal clear detailing and even some redone scenes the 4K HDR UHD version is impressive.
Well worth waiting for!
For those other "Blade-philes" out there - I read Paul Sammon's book cover to cover and was only able to imagine all that he wrote about. Now I was able to experience it first hand. Not only do you get all these versions of the movie (Theatrical, Director's cut, International cut, work-print , and Final Cut) but you also get hours of interviews from the actors, director, crew... you get screen tests, art work, behind the scenes footage, extra scenes - I mean it just goes on and on. It is extremely thorough and the attention to detail is apparent in every respect - packaging, design, content etc... I'm sure Mr. Sammon must have had a hand in this release. I still haven't finished watching every disc - it truly is the gift that keeps on giving ! Sorry to gush so much, I have never seen anything on the market that goes this in-depth with the making of a film before - and the fact that this much care went into a Blade Runner collector's edition is a dream come true!
The only thing that I don't see in this collection (maybe I just haven't gotten to it yet - but it doesn't appear in the booklet that describes the contents) is, surprisingly, any insight to the sound track. I am not a big Vangelis fan, however, his work on the sound track was great and extremely appropriate (except for the awful end credits theme - really the only thing that dates this movie).
One last word - the Final Cut itself looks amazing - the restoration / enhancement was very noticeable.
It seems to me that the only low scores for this collection had to do will packaging deformities (i.e. missing discs etc...) and not the content it self. In short, can't recommend it highly enough - a must have for any Blade Runner fan!
