Blade Runner Synopsis
Replicant hunter, aka "blade runner", Deckard is called from retirement to "retire" a group of rogue androids who have returned to Earth. In a perpetually dark, commercially overwrought Los Angeles (where else?), Deckard begins his search with a visit to the replicant creator, the Tyrell Corporation. He gets more than he bargained for as the differentiation between human and android becomes blurred. The 10th anniversary director's cut loses the voiceover and studio-mandated ending of the original 1982 release.
