From Amazon.co.uk

To call this cut of Blade Runner ‘long awaited’ would be a heavy, heavy understatement. It’s taken 25 years since the first release of one of the science-fiction genre’s flagship films to get this far, and understandably, Blade Runner: The Final Cut has proved to be one of the most eagerly awaited DVD releases of all time.

And it’s been well worth the wait. Director Ridley Scott’s decision to head back to the edit suite and cut together one last version of his flat-out classic film has been heavily rewarded, with a genuinely definitive version of an iconic, visually stunning and downright intelligent piece of cinema. Make no mistake: this is by distance the best version of Blade Runner. And it’s never looked better, either.

The core of Blade Runner, of course, remains the same, with Harrison Ford’s Deckard (the Blade Runner of the title) on the trail of four ‘replicants’, cloned humans that are now illegal. And he does so across an amazing cityscape that’s proven to be well ahead of its time, with astounding visuals that defied the supposed limits of special effects back in 1982.

Backed up with a staggering extra features package that varies depending on which version of this Blade Runner release you opt for (two-, four- and five-disc versions are available), the highlight nonetheless remains the stunning film itself. Remastered and restored, it remains a testament to a number of creative people whose thinking was simply a country mile in advance of that of their contemporaries. An unmissable purchase. --Jon Foster

Synopsis

The one that started it all. Ridley Scott's Blade Runner is one of the most important science-fiction movies of the 20th Century. Its futuristic depiction of a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world is perhaps more powerful and relevant today than when it was made. The film has appeared on more 'Top Five' sci-fi lists than any other.

Format: DVD
At long last, "Blade Runner" gets the definitive treatment it needs. With a release as lavish and enormous as this, there is no possibility of an abusive triple, quadruple, or seventh-re-release : almost everything you could possibly want is here.

"Blade Runner" is one of the greatest science fiction films ever made : a period piece set in an impossible future, a film noir detective thriller that uses the endless possibilities of Science Fiction to explore inner and outer space, a meditation of the nature of humanity, identity, and conscience. It is without doubt the finest film that anyone ever involved with it ever worked on. Given that the people who worked on it were also involved in "Star Wars", "2001", "Alien", and ...um... "Blind Fury"... that speaks for itself. I won't waste words on the film anymore : you either know what it is or you don't. If you don't - watch it. If you do - you know what I'm talking about. It's a classic - and one of the best films ever made.

This DVD re-release features a whopping 5 DVD's of material. Disc 1 contains the "Final Cut" :Ridley Scott's intended version that was sabotaged by brainless studio nincompoops and accountants. Here, Ridley has revisited and completed the film so it is now the way it was always meant to be seen. To the average viewer, these changes are often miniscule and barely noticeable : to the enthusiast they are the final brushstrokes to Scott's masterpiece. It's still "Blade Runner" though. If you liked it then, you'll like it now. If you didn't, you won't. But this Final Cut (the fifth version of the film released) is a film of such merit it deserves to be hung in a museum as one of the greatest justifications for mankinds continued existence.

Format: DVD
Despite all the furore over which cut is best, (without the happy ending is the most important change in my view, I have mixed feelings about the Decker voice over) this is quite simply the best Sci Fi film ever and surely one of the best films of the 20th Century. From the opening dark and ominous long shot over the pyramids of LA supported by a brilliantly moody and atmospheric Vangelis soundtrack, through Roy's stunningly over the top, poeticly scripted, (by Hauer himself apparently) death speech, (C beams glittering in the dark) to the final mystery or mysteries,(who is or is not a replicant) it remains a nigh on perfect piece of work. It certainly ranks with Ridley Scott's other seminal early ,masterpiece, Alien,in fact Blade Runner does have the edge insofar as style, script, art direction and just general artistic merit. Although Alien is the scarier. Wait for the new cut if you wish or buy both, whatever, but look, understand and enjoy. This is cinema art in its purist form and ranks with all the masterpieces of cinema. The only other Sci Fi that comes even close is 2001.

For the price amazon uk are charging for this i say that even if its not precisely the same as following its still worth it and recommend any fan of BR to get this version particularly if it does have the much fabled work print which is worth its weight in gold!

The following detail appears on the USA Amazon site for this same set the 5 disc ultimate edition

By calvinnme "Texan refugee" (Fredericksburg, Va)

Disc 1 - Ridley Scott's All-New "Final Cut" Version of the film - Restored and remastered with added and extended scenes, added lines, new and cleaner special effects and all new 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio. Also included is commentary by Ridley Scott and a host of others that worked behind the camera.

Disc 2 - Documentary - Dangerous Days: Making of Blade Runner - A feature-length documentary about the film including viewpoints and insights from the cast and crew. Included are details on every stage of production of the film including special effects, casting, and even the film's literary roots and its place in the sci-fi genre.

Disc 3 - 1982 Theatrical Version - The original that contains Deckard's narration and has Deckard and Rachel's (Sean Young) "happy ending" escape scene.

1982 International Version - Also used on U.S. home video, laserdisc and cable releases up to 1992. This version is not rated, and contains some extended action scenes in contrast to the Theatrical Version.

1992 Director's Cut - Omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale. It adds the famous "unicorn" sequence, which is a vision that Deckard has which suggests that he is also a replicant.

Format: DVD
Bladerunner is a paradox in that: the older it gets the fresher it looks. When first released in 1982 it's public reception was luke warm to say the least. Over time, fuelled by it's video and subsequent DVD release, an army of Bladerunner fans have emerged to fight its corner. Some films achieve cult status on a whim and question marks continue to hang over their quality. With Bladerunner this is certainly not the case.

Set in 21st century Los Angeles, Harrison Ford plays Deckard, a policeman from an elite unit (Bladerunners) with the remit to hunt down hunanoid robots (Replicants) who attempt to integrate into human society. When several replicants come to earth aiming to infiltrate the company that made them in a bid to extend their lifespan, Deckard is sent to track them down.

This cut removes the voice over and upbeat ending prevelent in the original 1982 cinema release and as such the film morphs into a darker and more claustrophobic entity. This enhances Doug Trumball's (2001, Close Encounters of the Third Kind) stunning special effects which easily match any of the CGI work on show today. And Hampton Fancher and David Peoples have crafted a script which forever questions the ethics of creating sentient beings but not allowing for the growth of autonomy or rights.

The 25th anniversary cut of Bladerunner is soon due for release but for those who have never journied into this remarkable and uncertain future, this is a memorable introduction.
