    I used to love this film. Until I found out that Ridley Scott thought Deckard was a replicant.

    Not only does that idea not make any sense, since Deckard is physically inferior to the replicants he hunts, but it robs the film of its meaning.

    We see Leon the replicant collect photographs. We see Deckard collect photographs. If Deckard is human, we get to compare and contrast and say hey, the replicants are just like us. If Deckard is a replicant, then the message of the film is "all replicants neurotically collect photographs" Way to go Ridley!

    Doubt it - you please yourself! There's at least one, if not two re-edits I haven't even seen, so who knows what the aggregate agreed excellence of it turns out to be?
    I've decided not to skulk in corners any more and say defiantly -"Sod you all, I preferred the original voice-over". Apparently, in devotee circles, I'm "wrong". I promise not to care if you don't.

    Now Playing.

    (I was unaware that it had been re-released, but it is in the box office lists according to IMDB - or in the UK at least.)

    Enhance, Enhance, Enhance...... Oh sorry! I was looking into their eyes to see if they were a replicant.

    I seen this up at the store for 7 bucks it was the final cut. Still debating on whether to buy or not. I like most of the movie, but some areas I find boring.

    I loved it.

    And it certainly doesn't upset the sequel in any way.
