Blade Runner, the ultimate Sci-Fi thriller!?
- Blade Runner review by Alex D.
Visually this is one of the most incredible films ever made, showing stunning images of the future that have been copied in many so many movies but never really surpassed in its realistic grittiness, with the some of the most interesting, weird, eccentric and cool characters in film history tied together with a thought provoking story; all this tied together to make not just a great science fiction film but a timeless and classic piece of cinema.

Superb sci-fi film
- Blade Runner review by RP
After 'Alien' (1979), director Ridley Scott went on to make (among many other superb films) 'Blade Runner' (1982) and the less-appreciated 'Black Rain' (1989). Each of these films features similar stylish dark and brooding visual surroundings. 'Blade Runner' immerses the viewer in an intense, claustrophobic atmosphere of tension, unease and menace which never lets up until the very end. The film will repay several viewings to understand the full and complex story, which goes something like this: in the future (well, the film says 2019...) it is possible to manufacture androids almost indistinguishable from humans. Banned on Earth, such androids (Replicants) are hunted down by agents known as Blade Runners. A group of six is loose, and it falls to Harrison Ford to track them down – which he does, falling for one of their kind in the process. A superb sci-fi film, highly recommended – 5/5 stars.
