Blade Runner

Stylistically, Blade Runner is a masterpiece…the look, the sound, the story.  It’s science fiction meets film noir.   Set in an environmentally ruined earth, Rick Deckard (the Blade Runner) is tasked to find and kill four bioengineered robots called “replicants.”  The problem is, the replicants look exactly like humans.  While being hunted, the replicants are on a hunt of their own…for their creator.  They have questions, “Why were we created,” and “Why do we have to die?’  They question what it is to be human.  The setting and the story are believable and perhaps even prophetic.
