"Blade Runner" impresses with its inquiry into the nature of memory, identity, and what it means to be human. The characters, behind their damaged and defensive facades, are complex and well realised. Harrison Ford's performance as the world-weary Deckard, and Rutger Hauer's portrayal of the terrifying yet sympathetic Batty, are noteworthy.
"Blade Runner" fully and richly deserves its reputation. It is simply one of the most extraordinary films ever made.' BBCi
