Star Wars meets Witness… Blade Runner (1982)

Blade RunnerHarrison Ford certainly has depth… but this role was meaty. Not a run of the mill sci-fi flick, Han Solo’s slightly darker edges from ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Empire..’ slam into ‘Witness’ hard nose John Book and do it well.

Called back from retirement or waiting to die, Ford’s ‘Blade Runner’ is on the edge and keeps us on the edge. Sure it does drag in some spots but will pick up with the ebb and flow of the film’s course. Rutger Hauer’s shining moment with some great roles for the younger Sean Young and Darryl Hannah… Well scripted, well paced and well done.
Match MetIf you can see it on the big-screen, do so. Popcorn for sure.
