Personally, I'd love to see Dekker (Harrison Ford) back in movie but as more of a fugitive or something like that. Blade Runner was such an awesome movie. I'm really excited to see that they're moving ahead with this project in a seemingly "full steam ahead" fashion.

Well, he did leave as a fugitive at the end of Blade Runner because he was suppose to kill the girl but he didn't instead he ran away with her so I guess they could bring him back in a cameo of some sort.

I'm probably gonna take some heat for this, but I think Blade Runner is a tad bit overrated. It was a good enjoyable movie, don't get me wrong. But it wasn't some sort of masterpiece like some claim. It was just a good enjoyable movie.

It looks good. Can't take that away. Scott and the set designers proved themselves absolute visionaries when creating this movie. Can't deny that. However, the characters are a bit thin, the pacing can feel awkward at times, some of the writing feels "forced" (for lack of better word) at times and, honestly, it can be kinda boring at times.

I think critics had it right at first. Initially it was rated as being a good movie but not overly great and definitely not a masterpiece. It wasn't until later that people started defining it that way. I think this simply stems from the influence it had on the genre. This being basically just because of the dark tone and the set design. Due to that (it's influence) it has climbed up to a hyped up status....because it now has a legacy behind it. Initially, it was seen for what it was.

That being said, I would watch a second one.
