Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner returns in Ridley Scott's definitive Final Cut, including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects, now seen in sepcatacular hi-definition! 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, muderous replicants - and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul. This spectacular 5-Disc Set features all of the content of the standard definition Ultimate Collector's Edition. All five version of the legendary Sci-Fi film from Director Ridley Scott with all new 5.1 audio - the definitive Final Cut, three additional versions of the film, and the rare Work Print version - in addition to the in-depth feature length documentary "Dangerous Days", and one complete disc of bonus content including over 80-minutes of never- before-seen deleted scenes.
In celebration of Blade Runner's 25th anniversary, director Ridley Scott has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version.

Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Edward James Olmos, Joanna Cassidy, Sean Young, and Daryl Hannah are among some 80 stars, filmmakers and others who participate in the extensive bonus features. Among the bonus material highlights is Dangerous Days, a brand new, three-and-a-half-hour documentary by award-winning DVD producer Charles de Lauzirika, with an extensive look into every aspect of the film: its literary genesis, its challenging production and its controversial legacy. The definitive documentary to accompany the definitive film version.

DOCUMENTARY DANGEROUS DAYS: MAKING BLADE RUNNER
A feature-length authoritative documentary revealing all the elements that shaped this hugely influential cinema landmark. Cast, crew, critics and colleagues give a behind-the-scenes, in-depth look at the film -- from its literary roots and inception through casting, production, visuals and special effects to its controversial legacy and place in Hollywood history.
1982 THEATRICAL VERSION
This is the version that introduced U.S. movie-going audiences to a revolutionary film with a new and excitingly provocative vision of the near-future. It contains Deckard/Harrison Ford's character narration and has Deckard and Rachel's (Sean Young) "happy ending" escape scene.
1982 INTERNATIONAL VERSION
Also used on U.S. home video, laserdisc and cable releases up to 1992. This version is not rated, and contains some extended action scenes in contrast to the Theatrical Version.
1992 DIRECTOR'S CUT
The Director's Cut omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale. It adds the famously-controversial "unicorn" sequence, a vision that Deckard has which suggests that he, too, may be a replicant.

This rare version of the film is considered by some to be the most radically different of all the Blade Runner cuts. It includes an altered opening scene, no Deckard narration until the final scenes, no "unicorn" sequence, no Deckard/Rachel "happy ending," altered lines between Batty (Rutger Hauer) and his creator Tyrell (Joe Turkell), alternate music and much more. Also includes:
- Commentary by Paul M. Sammon, author of Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner
- Featurette "All Our Variant Futures: From Workprint to Final Cut"

The story / moral themes apply to all of us, humans, nature... what creates life, what is life, what is ok to destroy and kill? What is love?
It is wonderful after all these years to see the behind the sceenes, the writers and dircetors views, the deleted scenes..
This is a great set to collect or give as a gift to anyone who likes futuristic , fantasy or sci-fi.
I really enjoyed the story in Blade Runner; it's a story that doesn't have to rely on action. Although it may sound like a chase film, it's much more than a typical SciFi action flick; it uses it's visuals, dialogue, and action to create a deeper experience. The film uses hypnotizing music, and stunning visuals to create an eerie-like atmosphere- it places you into a thinking mood. There are many versions of this film, some more thought-provoking than others; I say this because the film can generally be perceived in many ways, especially the ending. I recommend watching this film multiple times, starting with the International version then the Final Cut. The pacing is a bit slow, the acting is great, the music is amazing, and the visuals are breathtaking.
I own the 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition (Blu-Ray). The first disc has the Final Cut; The second disc has the Theatrical Cut, the International Cut, and the Director's Cut; the third disc has the Workprint Version and the special features. All of the discs are Blu-Ray, no DVDs. The picture quality has been upgraded significantly and the film looks phenomenal, matching most modern films; this is definitely one of the best upgrades I've seen and I hope more classic films get this treatment.
Overall, Blade Runner is an amazing SciFi film, with an extremely immersive SciFi atmosphere, stunning cinematography, mesmerizing music, and a deep storyline (depending on your perception, of course). I highly recommend the 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition (Blu-Ray) for fans and first-time viewers, because it is the definitive version and has all of the versions of the film- the slightest differences can really change your opinion.
Blade Runner has violence and blood, and brief nudity.
You will not be disappointed if you buy this Collector's Edition. 5 different versions spread across 3 discs. With the 2 other discs holding a 3 and half hour documentary on the making of "Blade Runner", and the other having footage no one has seen since shooting took place in 1981.
This should be considered either blu-ray or dvd of the year for 2007. If you have a PS3, or a blu-ray player, you should really get this set. You will be enjoying it for years to come.
