Believe it or not, but this is the first time I've ever seen this title. And being that this was the Final Cut version, I have no way of saying whether or not it is an improvement over the previous versions. What I can say is that it was good, good enough to warrant a second viewing some time in the future. Technically it is astounding, and that is before I even get to the Blu-Ray enhancements. The dark, sci-fi meets urbain noir setting convinces to the point that I almost forgot the actors where on a set, though the occasional matte painting did stand out to ruin my immersion ever so slightly.
Let me add that the Blu-Ray treatment can be considered reference quality. Again, I can't speak of the magnitude of any improvements but I loved what I saw and what I heard. I'm not sure that the creators intended from the start to create a seminal piece of filmmaking, but that is exactly what happened here. At its core it's quite a simple tale; the fun comes in how one interprets what is conveyed. In that regard, repeated viewing is a must. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to make sense of the unicorn.

A Sci-Fi classic. Moody and atmospheric. Has also not really aged. BD does it justice.

Timeless classic. Need I say more

This film was (and still is) a milestone in film making. Aesthetically and thematically. If you've never seen it before, you won't believe the year it first premiered after watching it. The sets, photography and effects are, for lack of a better word, insane. The only reason this product received 4 stars from me is because it's not a special edition or steel-box or something like that. Check it out!
The Product Itself:
The box is standard Blu-ray fare. The quality is definitely better than standard DVD boxes. Other than that, there's not much to say, besides that the disc does include some special features. For the price, considering the film and its cult status, it's a steal.

A timeless classic and simply one of the greatest films ever made, to this day Ridley Scott's magnum opus still manages to blow away with some of the best visuals and characters ever put to film.
A must see for fans of science fiction and cinema everywhere.
