Blade Runner at times seems more like a television advertisement than a serious movie. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 24, 2006
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.
August 5, 2013
They all plod along while sometimes dazzling, sometimes boring special effects whiz by and Ford's climactic confrontation with Hauer approaches. Instead of tension building, though, things are grinding to a halt, including Hauer's gears.

Projected in digital format with booming, all-encompassing sound, Blade Runner: The Final Cut is a marvel of technology and dedication. As a film it's still the same dead-eyed pretty girl who looks good on your arm but is a real bore over dinner.

...a hopelessly overrated piece of work.

Paradoxically, Scott's crowded, misty, neon streetscape seems even murkier; fuzz I chalked up to VHS tapes is production designer Lawrence G. Paull dumping ashtrays in the air.

A visually stunning, but emotionally empty sci-fi classic.

January 1, 2000
A very dark and far too long thriller with many dull moments that would serve the film better by moving along a bit faster.
August 2, 2015
The contradictions that plague the movie are apparent from the outset.
August 2, 2015
Too bad the filmmakers didn't try to recapture the modest virtues of the Dick novel, which (despite many flaws of its own) has a humor and humanity that are nowhere felt in 'Blade Runner.

This is one of the great visions ever put on screen, a massive and formative illustration of world building.
February 17, 2019
I might get more attention if I blasted the film for something or other, but I just can't... because it's great!

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

Reviled on release, who would have thought that Ridley Scott's sci-fi noir would go on to become so influential and retrospectively acclaimed?

December 21, 2018
I can't put it out there that Blade Runner is the greatest science-fiction movie of all time but it's certainly a very decent sci-fi flick.

I thought it was a good movie...One of those early movies to define that nature of what the cybernetic future will look like.
October 19, 2017
Blade Runner is a rare work of science-fiction cinema in the sense that it's a machine that generates questions, not answers.
February 27, 2020
Visual flair, philosophical substance, and kick-ass action can come together to make an entertaining and artistically compelling movie. Blade Runner proved that.
