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. Blade Runner: The Final Cut, spectacularly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution, will contain never-before-seen added/extended scenes, added lines, new and improved special effects, director and filmmaker commentary, an all-new 5.1 Dolby® Digital audio track and more. 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.

Now, fast-forward some years, the "Director's Cut" came out. Personally it was 'ok'. Took a bit to get used to Deckard's voice being gone, but this cut was good, extra stuff, etc...
Now!! I'm sitting with my 17-yr old son in a movie theatre when a trailer starts and within the first 3 seconds of just a visual and a couple notes of music, I KNEW.... I KNEW!!! OMG!!! I actually said that out loud in the theatre... OMG! Blade Runner!!! My son looked at me, cringed a bit, wished he had a different mother for that brief few seconds, but after watching a trailer, he was HOOKED!! On the way home from the movies we didn't even discuss what we watched, and honestly I can't remember, we only discussed Blade Runner, the story, the book, the movies, dystopian films, for a couple hours my teenage son suddenly saw his stay-at-home, Betty Crocker mom as 'somewhat' cool. LOL!
This weekend I purchased "Blade Runner: The Final Cut".... OMG!!! Talk about blown away! I felt like a Blade Runner virgin all over again! Ridley Scott finally got hold of everything he wanted to make HIS cut. And he made it beautifully!!!
(Note: the Director's Cut is NOT endorsed by Ridley Scott. He had nothing to do with it, has stated that on his Blog several times. While he doesn't dismiss the work, he does not endorse it)
The music, the added scenes, the lengthened unicorn sequence, and there are some twists that might surprise many of you that have only seen the Theatrical Cut. PLUS, I sat with my son during this viewing. He experienced something everyone, in my opinion, should experience once in their lifetime. The movie that started it all in the dystopian universe of gaming, movies, books (post Philip Dick), even the Steam Punk revolution. My son, all 6 ft and 17-yrs old, got it! He himself said, this explains so much in so many things I've read, games I've played, movies I've seen. A profound statement he made was "It's like this is the Rosetta Stone of science fiction today!!!"
IF you want to see the movie before you go to "Blade Runner 2019" in October, THIS is the version to see or the Theatrical Cut.
- I ordered my copy of the blu-ray edition off of the Amazon page that depicts a product with the "30th anniversary origami horse in the rain" cover, but I received a copy of the blu-ray edition that had a "colorful poster-style painting of the cast" cover matching what is depicted on the 4K and DVD "final cut" editions (listed variously on the same and also on different product pages)
- The 3.5 hour documentary by Charles de Lauzirika described on the Amazon product page for the version I ordered is not actually included in my copy, other bonus content may not be present, nor can I identify which variant of the product contains which bonus content based on information on the Amazon product page(s)
For an inexpensive blu-ray, this may not be that big a deal. But be advised that there are a bewildering number of different versions of "Blade Runner", variously on DVD, blu-ray, and 4K, a bunch of them appear to be crammed randomly (and duplicated) onto multiple Amazon product pages, product descriptions don't appear to match the version selected by the consumer, and you may not be supplied what you believed you were purchasing when you ordered.
But to my mind, there's no topping this as far as quality of image goes. The exterior shots of the Tyrell Corp. especially are as sharp as they've ever been - in part because they aren't obscured by Scott's directorial obsession with smoke. The street views come to life in a way I've never seen before, and because the image is so clear and sharp there's so much more detail to be seen.
The one strange issue I had was in the opening sequence, my TV had some dark black spots along the bottom of the screen when the fires flared during the overhead shot of Los Angeles, November 2019. I haven't seen any other reviews that mention this bizarre image problem, and I strongly suspect it may be a symptom of my cheap 4K TV's incompatibility with HDR.
The most important thing though is that this is faithful to the film. It looks like it was shot on film, and it doesn't look glossy and digitized. The whole point of 4K is to get a natural appearance that's as close to the film print as possible. I have a 4K TV that doesn't have HDR, so I can't speak to the HDR elements yet, unfortunately. However, from other reviews I've seen online, the HDR combined with the 4K elements means that this movie will probably never look superior to this version. Assuming the 4K Blu-Ray format never dies, this may be the last version of the movie I may ever buy again.
The only thing missing is extras. There are extras that were included on the 30th anniversary edition (assembled in 2007) that aren't on this one, and that means that there will probably be an "Ultimate 4K Edition" down the road that not only includes the gorgeous 4K version, but all the extras that will truly put the complete Blade Runner experience in one package. Until then, my advice is to hold onto your Blu-Ray version of the 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition.

Diesen Film schaut man nicht nur mit den Augen und hört ihn mit den Ohren, nein, man fühlt ihn dabei auch noch. Die Elemente des "Film noir" und der durchaus - aus heutiger Sicht - realistische Blick auf die Zukunft wirken genau da, wo sie es sollten. Bladerunner ist beklemmend und faszinierend zugleich, auch Dank der visuellen Effekte und der musikalischen Begleitung.
Der Film spielt 2019 in L.A., wir haben nun das Jahr 2018 und die damaligen Zukunftsaussichten sind gar nicht mal so abwegig. Auf den Gebieten der VR, AR und KI wird seit Jahren intensiv geforscht und entwickelt, die Erde ist bereits wirklich überbevölkert (Tendenz steigend) und die sozialen Kompetenzen der Menschen schwinden langsam aber sicher - vor allem aufgrund der technischen Innovationen und die Flucht in virtuelle Welten.
Auch der gezeigte Dauerregen ist möglich, wenn man sich unsere wirklichen Klimaveränderungen und deren Auswirkungen anschaut. Alles in Allem ein denkbares Gesamtszenario, welches uns in der Tat irgendwann erreichen könnte.
Wer ein rasantes Actionfeuerwerk oder pfiffige Dialoge erwartet, wird nicht bedient werden. Bladerunner fesselt den Zuschauer auf seine ganz eigene Art und Weise. Die dystopische Atmosphäre erzeugt Stimmung und regt zum Nachdenken an.
Sicherlich nicht jedermanns Sache aber für die o.g. Zielgruppe ein fest etablierter Kultfilm, den man gesehen haben sollte.
Tipp: Auch die Fortsetzung ist sehenswert.
There's a little toy included (bit of a gimmick really, but it sets this presentation box set apart from previous ones). There's several versions of the main feature here, but the one to watch of course is the very final (yes, final) director's cut version. In Blu-ray it's absolutely stunning (I'm quite new to Blu-ray and HD TV, so forgive my unbounded joy here) especially if you watch it in a dark room, with the sound fed through your hi-fi into good quality closed back headphones (the only way to enjoy films at home, in my opinion).
There's a load of extra material which takes up another several hours of viewing time (I did that over a few days, I must confess). It's fascinating to see how the original was cleaned up and tiny bits of one or two scenes were even re-shot many years later, to be edited into the final cut. I absolutely love programmes about 'the making of' .. I should have worked in films!
Blade Runner is one of those films that, if you like your sci-fi all atmospheric and frankly slightly weird, will stay with you for a very long time.
The addition of the spinner police car model is a nice touch in this boxed version . You get Four versions of Blade Runner, the first is the Blue Ray cut, done in 2007/8. Watching it took me right back to 1982 when I saw this movie for the first time, in that the picture quality is superb.
The films seminal opening sequence is made as breathtaking as I remember it from watching it in the cinema and the sound quality is excellent, highlighting and enhancing scenes throughout the movie.
The other discs include the original film release which was a studio butchered version of Ridley Scott's vision. His original directors cut release and the fourth disc is a ' working print'.
This last version is the film in 'progress ', a print shown to studio execs and test audiences so it's quality in picture and sound is a bit rough, but it gives a fascinating insight into the film making process as it has subtle differences to the final print.
This alone if your like myself a true fan of this film, coupled with the Blue Ray version makes the cost of this box set worthwhile. Add in the two other versions, making of documentary the model, makes it a must have.
Great to have all versions of this great movie in HD. picture is hit and miss, varying from scene to scene but this is common with older movies especially special editions and director cuts etc. No doubt that it's a great movie but this 'boxset' could be better. Packaging a bit flimsy and random art-work. The 'Spinner' model car is only slightly better quality than what you may expect to find from a Kinder Egg. There's a rushed to print book of archive material, not enough to get excited about and all from material you can find in earlier DVD boxset's or simply on google. A bit of a rush job all round really but so what, stick the film on, The final cut is great, just a slightly expensive way to get the film in HD with the additional 'mark-up' tat that's included.
