About this deal

What you do get is the film looking pristine, as good as it possibly could look, and on Blu-ray, there will be no nit-picks about digital artefacts or compression to mar your viewing experience. So when four of these replicants escape an intergalactic colony and head for Earth, Deckard is forced back to work to terminate them.

There was action, but not like the kind I'd seen in my favorite Schwarzenegger movies - the violence had an outcome. This is science fiction that answers questions and doesn't exist to simply look cool or to be an excuse for blowing things up. The Final Cut' is presented on all high-def versions with optional English and French Dolby Digital 5.I had to pause it and get up close to realise that the wall is actually textured, and that texture extends to the edge of the window frame, making it look jagged. Blade Runner' is the rare science fiction film to actually seem more prescient twenty-years after its release.

This is backed up to some extent by the fact that the ‘fizziest’ scenes tend to be those in fairly dark interior settings. Dick and his impressions of the film as well as the many interviews with other filmmakers who are devout fans of Blade Runner. Introduction by director Ridley Scott Three filmmaker commentaries, including one by Ridley Scott Disc 2: Definitive documentary incorporating outtakes, deleted scenes and all-new interviews. Even cooler, Warner has remastered all of this material from various sources and re-scored it to create a presentation that's way better than it has any right to be. It's clear that a huge effort was made in cleaning up the film as the source looks as though it was created recently as opposed to twenty-five years ago.Despite having Harrison Ford in the lead role, his Deckard is subdued and unsympathetic, a cynical character who lives a lonely existence. The image quality and audio are both such that they now transport you into this world, and for me, this becomes the ultimate Blade Runner experience.

Directional effects are scattered throughout the film and there is a wonderful sense of realism and ambience to the many crowded street scenes. Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner dazzles in Ridley Scott's definitive Final Cut, including extended scenes and special effects. To that point, this isn't a complete set of bonus features and unfortunately is short sighted in that it doesn't do any pre-release promotion of the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. The 4K edition of Blade Runner features a new Dolby Atmos audio mix that’s at least as amazing an achievement as the revamped visuals.

The whole attraction of Blade Runner was the creation of a realistic, lived in, enveloping future world, where you could pause any frame, and any aspect of that frame could prove inspiration for a dozen other stories.

minutes) - Kinda geeky, but this is a fun visit with the film's production design team, and a look at the various bits of signage and other graphical elements they created for the film.Blade Runner The Final Cut arrives for the first time on 4K Ultra HD courtesy of Warner Brothers in a four-disc + Digital HD set. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. with a flowchart of the changes, it's almost impossible to tell which cut of 'Blade Runner' you're even watching anymore.
