Video Explains Which Blade Runner Cut is The Best To Watch

Author Thumbnail BY Jake Vyper - October 09, 2017

Did you know that the original Blade Runner has at least seven different versions? However, only three of those versions (U.S. Theatrical Release, Director's Cut, and Final Cut) are widley available. If you need help figuring out which version is the best, this newly-released video by Slate Magazine will show you how the three popular cuts are different from each other. Watch it here: 

As the visual points out, the theatrical version is the worst and the Final Cut version is the best. The much-despised narration by Rick Deckard in the theatrical version has been erased, and the clich ending was ultimately cut as well.  The differences between the Director's Cut and the Final Cut are mostly aesthetic such as the addition ot steel-green color grading on some footage and more gore to some scenes.
