Like others here, I'm late to the Blade Runner party. Except, I've tried to watch this movie 2-4 times in the past, and couldn't get past the first hour or so. Tonight, I resolved to watch the film in its entirety.

The beginning is pretty good. It's an over-the-top cyberpunk film, and as a gamer, I can see where Deus Ex, and to a lesser extent Fallout got some of their inspiration. Then it becomes a Rutger Hauer thriller. Which isn't a bad thing, it's a staple of 1980s film, but I don't think it lives up to the hype.

It's probably something that was better in its time that hasn't aged well. It might be time to remake this one, to bring a fresher perspective to the story.

It's very rare, but the movie is better than the book in my opinion. Sure it doesn't talk about the religious aspects and doesn't lasts long on the animals' rarity and its social impact. But still, the atmosphere, the image, the characters, are all great and supported by an excellent OST. One of the few Ridley Scott's real masterpieces.
