Blade Runner | 1982 | R | - 5.7.2

Harrison Ford is a cop in a futuristic LA, and he's after artificial humans.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Intimated sex scene between a human and a replicant (android); we see some passionate kissing. Another scene where a replicant has been killed, and her tongue is sticking out; another male replicant kisses her. One replicant is an exotic dancer (she dances nude with a snake). There's a brief glimpse we only see her shoulders.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Several deaths. One woman is shot repeatedly as she crashes through plate glass, we see blood. One man is shot though the head from the back, we see the hole the bullet left in his forehead. One woman is shot twice in the abdomen and writhes around on the floor until she dies. One man just dies. Assorted other violence, mainly punches, and breaking fingers and jamming nails through hands. One man is brutally murdered by having his head smashed and his eyes dug out.

LANGUAGE 2 - Some name calling.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Death, the future, disease.

MESSAGE - The future looks grim. Empathy is what makes a creature human. Artificial humans can be more humane than "real" humans.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
