The definitive documentary to accompany the definitive film version. As Scott himself puts it, 'The Final Cut is the product of a process that began in early 2000 and continued off and on through seven years of intense research and meticulous restoration, technical challenges, amazing discoveries and new possibilities. I can now wholeheartedly say that Blade Runner: The Final Cut is my definitive director's cut of the film.'

I watched Blade Runner for the first time last year and didnt enjoy it at all - it was very different to what I expected and at the end I just wasnt sure what to make of it. But for a long time after watching it I felt as if I had missed something, and my opinion of Blade Runner changed last week as I finally decided to give it another go...
I'm not sure why I didn't like it the first time because when I watched it again last week I sat there, completely absorbed for 2 hours as I marvelled at the amazing visuals, Vangelis' mystical score and the incredible atmosphere of a dystopian L.A. This film is nothing short of a masterpiece, and Ridley Scott's magnum opus.
