Description

Storyline

In the twenty-first century, a corporation develops androids to be used as slaves in colonies outside of the Earth, identified as “replicants”. In 2019, a former Police Officer is hired to hunt down a fugitive group of replicants living undercover in Los Angeles, California.

Milestone Of Science Fiction And A Cyberpunk Masterpiece

A feast for the eyes. Dark and uncompromising. With a haunting musical score by Vangelis that adds a hypnotic quality to those breathtaking megacity landscapes of future Los Angeles. Ridley Scott’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s post-apocalyptic bounty hunter story ‘Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep’ is a visionary work of art; it’s a dystopian masterpiece and I’d personally call it as much a milestone of science fiction as Kubrick’s ‘2001’ (and be advised to watch the version known as the “final cut” if you want to catch ‘Blade Runner’ as it was intended by its director).

It’s hard to overstate how influential the film was; it invented the sci-fi subgenre now known as “cyberpunk”, and it was also the first “film noir” in a sci-fi setting. And although it looks so distractingly gorgeous that even today there are people who still dismiss it as superficial and mere “eye candy”, it is a philosophically deep film that ponders existential questions about the nature of being human. Its slow, brooding quality will perhaps leave some modern audiences who are used to a different pace and more action underwhelmed – but make no mistake: this is a groundbreaking masterwork of its genre and a timeless classic.

One of the greatest Sci-Fi movies of all time.
 
Blade Runner is perhaps the best sci-fi film and undoubtedly one of the best films of all time. Along with 2001: A Space Odyssey, it is one of the most philosophical and influential movies ever created, as it conveys a plethora of fundamental questions, which are woven in the very fabric of the human essence and existence. It seems near impossible to imagine a more suitable fusion of two of the most successful genres of all time, Science Fiction and Film Noir. By merging together the moral conflict and the emphatic character arc of the private detective, a trait that is exclusive to and definitive of the Film Noir genre, with a futuristic dystopian environment, Blade Runner creates the ultimate Neo-Noir setting, the only one capable of supporting such strong ideas and posing such significant questions to the viewer, without compromising on an interesting plot development and an appealing pace, things that are masterfully achieved via a tight script and persuasive performances.
