This is one of the great visions ever put on screen, a massive and formative illustration of world building.

The score by Vangelis amplifies the emotion of every scene seamlessly, and enough can't be said about the production design by Lawrence G. Paull and visual effects by Douglas Trumbull.

Visual flair, philosophical substance, and kick-ass action can come together to make an entertaining and artistically compelling movie. Blade Runner proved that.

Still profound 18 years after its sell-by date, Blade Runner remains worthy of acclaim and analysis even as it exists in a "future" with very little resemblance to the one that came to pass.

The whole film is very well crafted and a wonderful sci-fi dystopian movie.

Ridley Scott has produced a new vision that is forbidding.

Like Nolan's INCEPTION and Kubrick's 2001, Scott's works are really shallow, action set pieces masquerading as profound science fiction.

Film noir cubed, science fiction a step beyond 2001.
August 2, 2015
Even when over the top, Scott's uncompromisingly disorienting film is a singularly hallucinatory experience and nothing short of exhilarating.

A masterpiece of dystopian science fiction on film.

It takes a particularly weird kind of sincerity to end a movie that has been for its entire running time an exploration of surfaces... with its most sublime and humane gesture.
