"Director's Cuts" usually are much different from the original film.
Films like "JFK" and "American Pie" have had original cuts, with
more elaborate characters or story lines. "American Pie" had to be
cut for the nudity and content for an "R" rating. It's unrated
cut contains more nudity, and contains "NC-17" content.
"Blade Runner" also has changed a lot from its original cut. Such as
the changed "ride off into the sunset" ending. Plot: In the Nexus age,
andriods called replicants must be killed off for becomming way too human.
One who kills them, a Blade Runner, must track them down and question
them. Symptoms of a replicant: pupils diolate at unnessicary times
and vague emotions. A Blade Runner (Harrison Ford) is highered to
finish off the remaining, but falls in love with a replicant.
Though the whole film seems like a well-done painting in production
design, it lacks good, likable charachters. Another flaw, how could
anybody find love in an andriod?! Loosly based on the book "Do Andriods
Dream Of Electric Sheep?". Director Ridley Scott leaps onto a brand-new
discovery in film making. You'll either love or hate this film.
You'll fall in love with the surroundings, that may be a reason to see
the "Director's cut", not the original. Great science fiction, but is
not for kids.
