I meant blade runner. Or is that the movie where they were capturing people and hunting them like animals. Those are the two movies that come to mind when i hear blade runner.
Ah, you're on Running Man
, with AAhnold, Richard Dawson, Maria Conchita Alonzo, Mick Fleetwood (yep, that one with the Mac hanging off his name).Blade Runner (1982)
was perfectly filmed at the perfect time. Harrison Ford is a "Blade Runner", a/k/a a cop with 007-level authority to shoot illegal on-world androids (replicants) on sight (the replicants are essentially slaves doing the grunt work out in the colonies). The crux of the movie, and the part that Ridley Scott keeps yanking our chain about, is that the replicants appear to be better humans than the humans. I personally believe Deckard (Harrison Ford's character) to be human, but I am in a minority here. Maybe 2049 (set 30 years after the original) will add more light to that discussion.
It's partially an action film but, at its core, it's a philosophical film. A thinking man's film. I have the max DVD set with all 5 versions and they're all amazing.
If you never watch the whole movie, at least watch this (Rutger Hauer is the lead replicant). The original theatrical version had a cheezy voice-over from Harrison Ford speculating about Roy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoAzpa1x7jU
Humans sleep soundly in their beds because rough cats stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
