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.

The extras disc has some great interviews and much that will fascinate the Blade Runner lover or anyone interested in how a great film is made... And the enclosed booklet of images and production art makes for a wonderful package, especially as the Amazon price makes this all a super bargain and thus a 'must own' purchase for all Blade Runner fans... and anyone that loves a great Science Fiction classic movie.
Though the Final Cut DVD did look good on my Blu-ray player, I am very, very happy to now have this Blu-ray 30th Anniversary Collector's set! I am truly in Blade Runner 'heaven' now... A big Thank-You! to Ridley Scott and the team that put the Final Cut together... and another Thank-You! to Amazon...
While that may not have been Ridley Scotts artistic vision I felt like it added something to the movie that the directors cut lacked and that is the essence of the old film noir detective movies from the 30s and 40s. I missed that atmosphere and am glad now that I can enjoy the film in it's originally released form.
I will say that after watching the special features and documentaries I am more sympathetic to the directors cut. I think though it could be improved by adding some (not all) of the deleted scenes as they provide the atmosphere that is missing without the narrative track.
The movie is based on a novel by Philip K. Dick called, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" In this case I found I actually enjoyed the movie more than the book.
Were I to guess I would say that most people could be divided into one of two groups, those that are intrigued and repulsed and those that are only repulsed; if you've seen the movie before you probably already know which group is your group. I'll address my comments to the former group and those who have never seen the movie.
If you've never seen the movie and you're a devoted science fiction fan then you'll likely be part of the first group; if you’re not a science fiction fan then the jury is out on you.
This collection is, to the best of my knowledge, the ultimate collection for the Blade Runner fan; the collection includes Disc 1, "The Final Cut (2007), Disc 2, Original Theatrical Cut (1982), International Theatrical Cut (1982) and the Directors Cut (1991), Disc 3 includes "Workprint and Special Features"
Also included are 40 pages of assorted sketches, art work and photos of the making of the movie and scenes from the movie. I bought this version in spite of the fact I have two previous versions on Laser Disc and one on DVD; I guess that sort of marks me off as a fan of the movie.
If you're a fan of science fiction and you've never seen this movie, then you have a real treat in store; I encourage you to go ahead and get this version which has so much to offer. If you've got an earlier version, well I can say to you I'm really glad I added this one to my collection and suspect you'll be glad you did if you decide to take the plunge and buy another copy for your collection.
