This is the cheapest I have seen this particular version of Blade Runner - it's priced at £5.97 from Amazon, or £7.42 including the cheapest postage cost. Even with that, it's still the cheapest on the web, the next cheapest being about a tenner.

Details: It is 2019 and genetically made beings known as replicants exist as slaves and prostitutes in the off-planet colonies. Despite possessing such human traits as intelligence and virtual emotion, they are limited by a four-year life span which forces them to question their mortality. Four escaped replicants, led by Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer, THE HITCHER), arrive in Los Angeles to confront their designer, Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel). Hot on their trail is world-weary assassin--or 'blade runner'--Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford, INDIANA JONES), who has come out of retirement especially for this case. His objective is to hunt down and liquidate the four renegade androids before they have a chance to exact revenge on their cruel human oppressors. In the course of his search, Deckard becomes romantically entangled with Tyrell's lovely assistant Rachael (Sean Young)--who may not be all that she seems--and a dramatic face-off with Batty is inevitable. Director Ridley Scott's hauntingly prescient vision of the not-too-distant future is a stark revelation: a dark, polluted, overcrowded dystopia dominated by cloud-piercing buildings and looming neon billboards, the air dense with acid rain and flying traffic. Based on the novel DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? by Philip K Dick, BLADE RUNNER boasts astonishingly rich art direction, juxtaposing ingenious technological gadgetry with yellowing photographs and fetishist objets d'art as it touches on questions of time, memory, identity, and mortality. Scott's 1992 director's cut edition contains notable alterations, including the absence of Ford's narration, which significantly heightens the ambiguity of key moments in this stunning cinematic landmark.

This is not remastered in any way shape or form. It's basically taken from the ancient laserdisc source and the picture is pathetic considering the amazing heritage of the film. The sound is equally shocking and is only basic stereo.

Unfortunately the git that owns the rights to Bladerunner hates the film and is refusing to release the master copies and let this film get the treatment it deserves :-( Been driving me nuts for years as it's one of my faves.

Absolutely spot on. There is a special edition due out soon that will (supposedly) see the end of any possible further releases. I am biding my time until that is released.

good deal if you happen to be buying from amazon.. although if you can wait a few months you can get the multidisc set with the extras.
because this box looks almost the same as the Crap Edition, i'd be worried about them sending the old one. dvd.co.uk have done this to me with other titles.
one more thing.. there's a pirate copy of a 1080i digital tv broadcast going around which is probably even better quality than this DVD.. i've heard its very good ;)
