A blade runner (Harrison Ford) must hunt and terminate four replicants who hijacked a spaceship so they can return to Earth. Based on the 1968 book by the American writer Philip K. Dick, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.” The late author is known as a science fiction writer who deals with existential questions, Jungian theory, and the quest for the “authentic” human, of which Blade Runner is a perfect example.
Step into a dark and dystopic vision of a future where humans and androids are so enmeshed it’s uncanny.
Harrison Ford (VO): “Replicants weren’t supposed to have feelings… neither were blade runners.”
