    This is perhaps the only science-fiction film that can be called transcendental.

    As a display terminal for the wizardry of Designers Lawrence G. Paull, Douglas Trumbull and Syd Mead, the movie delivers.

    This definitive print should be the last little push that "Blade Runner" needs to complete its 25-year journey from box office failure to cult favorite to full-blown classic.

    The film still represents the cutting edge of dark science fiction.

    Open the champagne: Blade Runner is finally just the way Ridley Scott wanted it. And it only took 25 years.

    There are no plot-altering additions or subtractions. But the digitally spruced print is gorgeous to look at and listen to.

    Much of the film's erotic charge and moral and ideological ambiguity stem from the fact that these characters are very nearly the only ones we care about.

    This is a seminal film, building on older classics like Metropolis or Things to Come, but establishing a pervasive view of the future that has influenced science fiction films ever since.

    Ridley Scott created a triumph of retro-futuristic design over narrative or character richness.

    The opportunity to see one of the milestone visual achievements in a big hall with a giant screen is not to be missed. And even if you saw Blade Runner in a theater in 1982, this will be an entirely new experience.

    Mainly, the re-release is a good excuse to indulge once more in Scott's iconic and highly influential vision of a future Los Angeles choked by rain, neon and cheap pleasure palaces.

    These days, it's almost impossible to find a gritty science fiction motion picture that doesn't owe at least a small debt to Blade Runner's visual style.

    A stylistically dazzling film noir set in November 2019 in a brilliantly imagined Los Angeles marked by both technological wonders and horrendous squalor.

    The android villains are neither menacing nor sympathetic, when ideally they should have been both. This leaves Scott's picturesque violence looking dull and exploitative.

    As intricately detailed as anything a science-fiction film has yet envisioned.

    It is, in fact, an amazingly sophisticated, sumptuously visionary treatise on the consequences of attaining god-hood.

    The film is great on every level: the poignant screenplay about man's futile quest for immortality; Scott's tremendous direction; the incredible, futuristic sets designed by Lawrence G. Paull, Syd Mead and others; the phenomenal special effects.
