    Blade Runner - The Final Cut (UHD Blu-ray) review

    Plot
    21st-century detective Rick Deckard brings his masculine-yet-vulnerable presence to this stylish noir thriller. In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Deckard hunts for fugitive, murderous replicants – and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul.

    My Thoughts
    This is the fifth time I’ve sat through the film and while I don’t think it’s the best thing since sliced bread, it does get better with each subsequent viewing. I takes a rather dim look at the year 2019 and while I doubt we’ll see things look that bad in two years, a peak at the nightly news may have you questioning my statement. Regardless, the influence this film has had on science fiction over the years is astounding when you consider how cyborgs have become commonplace in so many other films and TV shows.

    Conclusion
    This is by far the best this film has ever looked or sounded. The video encode is struck from a 4K DI from 2007 and encoded in H.265 and the results are astounding. If you’re a fan of the film, this is definitely the only way to watch it and if you’re 4K capable, be sure to pick up the disc. Highly recommended.

    I've tried hard to like this film, but it's not for me. I bought the HD DVD release which included the Director's Cut and still, it's a one shot viewer.

    However, I glad it's growing on you.

    Tracy,

    I like the cinematography the most. The story itself is kind of "meh."
