Blade Runner (Final Cut)

Future Noir~

You know, I've now seen every version of this and none of them are especially engaging. The noir elements are interesting as is the meditation on what it means to be human. Unfortunately these take a back seat to some pretty cliche action sequences and overly pretentious dialogue. The extended dialogue sequences in this version help to flesh out the plot, but I ultimately like the idea of this film a lot more than the execution.
