==============================================

I can’t quite make up my mind what this cult science-fiction noir is, a flawed masterpiece or a flawed would-be masterpiece. That it is flawed there can be no doubt. It is very slow, short on dialogue, low-key almost to the point of stoned indifference, and has numerous problems with plot and characterisation. On the positive side, many of these defects are negated by merits. The visual side is spectacular and hardly dated almost forty years later: no mean achievement in itself. The bleak atmosphere of emotional distance and suppressed violence, so essential to film noir whatever future or past it happens to take place in, is more than palpable. The cast is led by Harrison Ford apparently bored to death, but the late great Rutger Hauer more than makes up for that. Roy is one of the great screen villains who achieve redemption in the end. The final confrontation with Deckard is shot as some sort of parody of psycho thrillers; it is ridiculous and quite out of joint with the rest of the film. But Roy’s justly famous death scene is a thing of beauty. If Hauer really did improvise that final line, it was a stroke of genius on his part. Alluring Sean Young (I wish her part had been larger; the romance is essential but rather sparse) and spooky Daryl Hannah (now, her part could have been smaller, never mind how good she is) are nice bonuses. I’m not familiar with the tangled situation with different versions, but I can report the so-called Final Cut has no voiceover narrative (good idea), more gore (bad idea), beautifully muted colours (more effective than the bright ones in the Director’s Cut), and more ambiguous ending than the theatrical release (although the happy end, while not shown, is certainly implied).

I know it's seen as a classic but sadly I was rather bored. ( )
