"Scott has said, “Why watch a film seven times? Because someone’s done it right and transported you to its world.” This retooling makes the film worth an eighth trip, and more. Not a case of Blade Runner Redux, but Blade Runner Deluxe."
- Adam Smith, Empire
"The best version to see is Blade Runner: The Final Cut - as the perfectionist director’s definitive cut is called - which is bleaker than the original but a more wonderfully immersive and true film."
- Martin Chilton, The Telegraph
Adapted from Philip K. Dick’s novel ’Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’, this seminal piece of cinema is set in 21st-century Los Angeles where a semi-retired cop, known as a ’blade runner’, is assigned to hunt down and eliminate four ’replicants’, genetically created humanoid robots.
Blade Runner is a trailblazing masterpiece that has influenced hundreds of films and ranks as one of the finest sci-fi films ever made. Given complete artistic freedom to make The Final Cut in 2007, the 25th anniversary of the film’s theatrical release, director Sir Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator) created this final, definitive version, fully restored from the original negative. Originally released on DVD, the new cut has been digitally remastered and can now be seen on the big screen for the very first time!
