    Synopsis


    Blade Runner: The Final Cut
    Ridley Scott's celebrated sci-fi classic stars Harrison Ford as retired 21st Century Detective Rick Deckard, who is forced back into active duty in order to hunt a fugitive band of human-like androids known as "replicants" though the rain-soaked streets of L.A. After meeting with the eccentric Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel), creator of the replicants, Deckard finds and eliminates Zhora (Joanna Cassidy) before coming under attack by the powerful Leon (Brion James). Deckard is about to be killed by Leon when he's saved by Rachael (Sean Young), Tyrell's assistant and a replicant who's unaware of her true nature. In the meantime, replicant leader Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) and his pleasure model lover, Pris (Darryl Hannah) use a dying inventor, J.F. Sebastian (William Sanderson) to get close to Tyrell and murder him. Deckard tracks the pair to Sebastian's, where a bloody and violent final confrontation between Deckard and Batty takes place on a skyscraper rooftop high above the city. This digitally re-mastered version of the film features extended scenes and improved visual effects approved by the director in order to better reflect his original vision. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Ok, so here we go. With a kind of rough start to my viewing experience it ended up being really awesome. I first had to literally hunt down a copy of this the very day it was released. I wanted to show this to my kids so they could get a good idea of what it’s about before the sequel came out. After finding that nearly every Best Buy in the Denver Metro Area was sold out of it the moment the stores opened I knew I was in trouble. Luckily I found 2 copies at the store nearest my house because they are atrocious at placing them where you can find things. This time it worked to my advantage, and I got a copy. So I took it home getting all excited to watch this great film that I loved with my kids. Popped it in my player and watched to where the flames shoot up at the beginning of the film and it froze and became pixelated. So I got scared, popped it out cleaned off the disc (that was already clean as it was brand new) and tried again, whew, made it a bit further. Then it happened again, and again. Skipping past vast sections I found that I had a bad disc. Getting frustrated because from what I could tell the picture was amazing. I downgraded to the Blu Ray copy so we could just plain watch it. Tried fast forwarding to where it died on us and picked up where we left off. This time on the Blu Ray copy it played just fine. Didn’t look as good, but still not bad, BUT the dialogue was about a second behind the actors. I fast forwarded and apparently this was a problem with the whole disc. You can imagine my frustration when I decided that the only way we would see this that evening was to watch it streaming through the included digital copy off of VUDU. Fortunately for us that version was just fine, but only HDX, not UHD 4k (frustration). So I took it back to Best Buy who exchanged my disc. I took it home and it worked fine, and looks amazing and is worth every penny. But buyer beware, apparently there may be bad discs, so be sure to check what you get quickly.

      Influential, introspective sci-fi

      Blade Runner (which, coincidentally, takes place in what is now the very near future) is an ambitious sci-fi film which delves into the meaning of humanity in the context of a story of a "blade runner" whose job it is to find and destroy human-like robots known as replicants who have infiltrated earth. Its world is realized in amazing detail, and the film is suspenseful and full of shots and moments that will make deep impressions. The plot and characterizations are solid but somewhat take a back seat to the creation of the world, along with an overall scenario designed to provoke thought. This isn't a popcorn movie and Harrison Ford's performance is quite different from his then just-completed Star Wars and Indiana Jones roles. I don't have clear memories of the older cuts, but the Final Cut presented here holds together well and feels like a cohesive whole, even as it resists explicit messages and a conclusive ending. The 4K presentation is quite good overall. Obviously given the age it's not as sharp or clean as something like Planet Earth II, but for the most part it's quite sharp and shows beautiful detail. The grain can get pretty heavy at times, especially in foggy shots, but I found it tolerable even at its worst, and most of the time it wasn't a distraction at all. I also noticed a number of soft shots, presumably due to camera focus. The HDR is fairly subtle a lot of the time, but shows off bright colors and lights when appropriate. If I wanted to show someone one demo of 4K, it wouldn't be this, but it does seem like a good demo of what 4K can do with an older, 35mm film (I don't have others to compare to when I say this).

      Blade Runner 4K - Yes it's worth the re-buy!

      Posted

      Blade Runner is one of my favorite films and it's influence on movies is profound. I think I've owned every version at one point or another (from the Criterion laserdisc, to dvd, to multiple versions on blu-ray, maybe even a VHS copy at one point). The pervious Final Cut blu-ray was very impressive and a jump in quality, plus great extras over the older Blu-ray versions. I've been hesitant in re-buying movies(even my favorites) in the 4K format unless there's a significant improvement in picture quality, and worth the re-puchase price. Having read really good reviews online, I can say without any hesitation, buying this is worth the price. For around $20, this 4K version has an impressive uptick in sharpness, detail level, and color. It is like watching this movie again for the first time. I'm noticing details, especially in the open street scenes, I've never seen before. Colors appear more intense - and my TV doesn't have the benefit of HDR (got mine from BB just as HDR was coming out and could afford the extra $500 at the time), which is another reason I hesitate on many of the 4K re-purchases. So if yours does, you're in for a real treat. This isn't going to look like Guardians 2 or The Revenant, but if the studios took this much care on their older movie titles, I'd find myself re-buying a lot more movies. Don't think about it, grab Blade Runner in 4K and enjoy a really great movie, that looks the best it ever has!

      Finally, the version I've been waiting for and many others as well. For years Blade Runner fans have been subject to the insane number of versions of Blade Runner and even the 5 disc Blu Ray copy that really is not worth the price you pay. The Final Cut is the version to have if you truly love the Blade Runner experience and have always hated the annoying voiceover by Harrison Ford that has plagued various copies of the film. Ridley Scott himself was able to have full artistic license with this film and you will not be disappointed. What you will be greeted with is a very clean, crisp HD version of the film and just the best single copy out there without all the extra discs of fluff and crappier versions. This version has the omitted voiceover, alternate ending without the "happy resolution" and the inclusion of the Unicorn dream. Any other reviews that knock the film are most likely fans of the voiceover which spoon feeds you information and takes away the lonely rainy feeling you get when watching the film for the first time. Plus in my opinion without the added commentary you are able to judge the film for yourself and not be guided through every single little plot detail. The acting is spot on and perhaps my personal favorite Ford role to date. If you are going to have any science fiction film on your shelf please get this version you will not be disappointed. 5 stars on audio, visual effects, crisp colors and picture quality.

      4K HDR Review

      Blade Runner has been out a while, so I'm not reviewing the movie content, which is fantastic. This review is for the 4k HDR transfer. For a movie that was created in 1982, the 4K HDR transfer looks pretty **** good! There are only minimal scenes where you can see some graininess, which is pretty good considering that this movie is mainly set in a dark environment. Some put a little more effort into making sure a transfer is done well, and this movie is one of those exceptions. Many of the older movies don't get as much "love" (such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and they almost look worse than the original blu ray release. You won't be disappointed with this 4k HDR release. Being a movie with a darker ambient environment there are plenty of lights to pop out at you showing off the HDR effects. If you happen to own a TV that produces really great blacks (OLED, etc.), you will like the blacks in this movie.

      Best Sci-Fi Film in History

      Blade Runner is easily one of the best science fiction films in history. Densely layered with beautiful sets, intricate props, beautiful matte paintings, and timeless special effects, Blade Runner is the pinnacle of what all science fiction films should hope to achieve. While some may criticize it as being slow or boring, this film is extremely character driven and goes so far to create a world that the audience can be invested in and believe in. Seeing this movie on 4K UHD HDR is truly breathtaking. This is a film who's visuals truly lend itself to being enhanced by the experience of 4K and makes it well worth the purchase. Just from the opening on the Hades landscape, the stunning improvement in visuals mixed with the 5.0 Dolby Surround Sound enhancement creates a whole new experience even for the most long-time Blade Runner fans. Complete with the Theatrical, International, and Directors cuts on regular blu ray, as well as the 3-hour long Dangerous Days documentary, this is the ultimate Blade Runner package that should not and cannot be missed by any fan of film, science fiction, or even if you're just a technology enthusiast who wants to see the full capabilities of your new tv put to the test.

      Legendary Movie Requiring Patience

      This is a slow burn. Period. It's not to everyone's taste. It's also essential if you like modern science fiction films because, like Star Wars, it casts a long shadow by having influenced so much since. What's hard to evaluate is that Warner Brothers skimped and didn't include ALL the discs in the excellent 2007 Blu-ray set. What's frustrating is that, because of some distribution error, the one disc they officially removed isn't always the one not in the set. Meaning that some sets have slightly different content. Is there a replacement program? Dunno. Either way, one should seek out the 5-disc Blu-ray just in case. Why? Well, the disc officially not in this set contains multiple versions of this film; one drastically different and a few similar. "It's complicated." It's worth it -- even if it may not live up to they hype. After all, what does? Hype is like tears in the rain. As to the 4k? Glorious. The neon glows. The audio? The rain, the ambience, the (dated, in my opinion) score are immersive well beyond what I'd expect from a 1982 "flop."

      Great film to 4K transfer

      This review is solely for the 4K disc and blu day as I have not watched the special features. The movie was previously remastered for the blu ray release and the UHD disc features a 2160p 16:9 2:4:1 presentation. I was impressed by the detail of the landscape shots and the actors. If you already own the blu Ray special edition release I would be hard pressed to recommend a repurchase as there just isn’t that much more detail to pull from the original film. Edges look a little harder with sharper lines but wether or not that justifies the upgrade depends on the buyer. I did notice a more detailed sound stage on my 5.1 home theater. If you want the ultimate presentation of this movie and have the right equipment I definitely think it’s worth the purchase. If you are already an owner of the blu ray and will be watching with a sound bar I don’t think it warrants a rebuy for the resolution bump and hdr.
