Blade Runner (1982) – Movie Review
Hey guys, so have you noticed the wave of nostalgia based movie reboots? Some of them I have to admit were kind of cool… Some of them not so much…
There was one in particular that got me nostalgic for some great classic Ridley Scott (Alien) sci-fi masterpieces… That of course being when I recently saw Blade Runner 2049 (2017)!
Now I hadn’t seen Blade Runner since it was on laser disc… But there are few movies that hold up to the test of time… Starwars… No matter how many generations watch these films, their movies generally tend to remain being pretty amazing! Star Trek is another one of those series, the Alien franchise is another… And the movie that deserved a sequel for over 20 years is another one… That movie is Blade Runner (1982)!
Written by: Hampton Fancher (The Minus Man), David Webb Peoples (Soldier) & Directed by: Ridley Scott. Starring: Harrison Ford (Star Wars: A New Hope), Rutger Hauer (Hobo With A Shotgun), Sean Young (Dune), Edward James Olmos (Monday Night At Seven), M. Emmet Walsh (Critters), Darryl Hannah (Splash), William Sanderson (Pretty Ugly People), Brion James (The Fifth Element) & Joe Turkel (The Shinning).
“Replicants are like any other machine – they’re either a benefit or a hazard. If they’re a benefit, it’s not my problem.“ – A quote from the movie, Blade Runner (1982).
This movie tells of a sort of a dark and dreary yet particularly edge of your seat tale of how in the future, humanity will create a race of basically cloned people with the intention of bringing the human race to the farthest reaches of space, and to help expand humanity in everyway possible!
But when replicants begin to try to rise up against their masters, the humans decide to outlaw them and begin to, ‘retire’ them…
When a replicant comes to the Tyrell Corporation (the company that created the replicants,) and kills a human interviewing him. It will be up to former Blade Runner (A group of law enforcement officials charged with destroying the replicants) by the name of Deckard (Played by Harrison Ford) to investigate find the replicants and destroy them!
What Deckard didn’t know is that he is about to dive in to a world that he never expected and maybe even change his beliefs on Replicant kind in the whole!
I am gonna summarize this movie with this… There is nothing wrong with this movie, if you are a sci-fi fan, or you are just looking for a fun movie to dive in to… i am pretty sure you are going to like this one! I know I did when I was a kid, and I certainly do now!
