Ridley Scott

Blade Runner

117' - 1982 - Action, Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Ridley Scott Composer: Gail Laughton With: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young
A brilliantly conceived and designed film, Blade Runner has become something of a cult
favorite. Its $27 million price tag shows in the astonishing sets of 21st-century L.A. Rain, mist, and fog swirl about titanic structures built upon the ruins of the city, as mammoth space machines lumber about promoting the good life on the "off-world colonies." Earth is in decay. The best of the human race has departed for greener space pastures, leaving the dregs to mill around in the congested streets. Deckard accepts a "freelance" assignment tracking down a group of cyborgs who have mutinied and returned to Earth, seeking to prolong their short life span by altering their programmed mechanisms.
