Everything about this film is perfect; soundtrack, visuals and acting. One of the most moving and powerful scenes of the film is when Rutger Hauer’s character, Roy Batty, is about to die (as pictured here).
Rumour has it that Ridley Scott is now wanting to make a follow-up and Harrison Ford is wanting to be in on it. I have a problem with this.
Despite putting in one of his best screen performances, Ford has never hidden the fact he hated the movie. On the rare occasions he did talk about it, he came across as a bit of an ungrateful ‘git’ to be honest. However, his roles seem to be drying up (not that he needs the money, I assume) so maybe he will take anything he can get. Which leads me to ask, why should he be in it? If I were Ridley Scott I would be asking myself that very same question. Does he need to deal with an ungrateful brat of an actor? I personally, don’t think that Bladerunner 2 needs Deckard to be the centre of the narrative.
Despite my little rant, am I looking forward to this film? Oh yes!
