Blade Runner

Blade Runner
1982 -- Rated R
Director: Ridley Scott
Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, Rutger Hauer

Yet another Harrison Ford vehicle. This time the setting is in a Los Angeles of the future and Ford's character is coerced back into the special unit police force which tracks down and eliminates runaway replicants. A movie that does an excellent job of adding color to what is essentially a film noir piece. Lots of good ethics and morals discussion fodder to be found in this movie.

This movie is the benchmark against which all other SciFi films are judged. None so far make the grade. Perhaps one of the finest films of the 20th century.
