Ridley Scott's celebrated sci-fi classic stars Harrison Ford as retired 21st Century Detective Rick Deckard, who is forced back into active duty in order to hunt a fugitive band of human-like androids known as "replicants" though the rain-soaked streets of L.A. After meeting with the eccentric Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel), creator of the replicants, Deckard finds and eliminates Zhora (Joanna Cassidy) before coming under attack by the powerful Leon (Brion James). Deckard is about to be killed by Leon when he's saved by Rachael (Sean Young), Tyrell's assistant and a replicant who's unaware of her true nature. In the meantime, replicant leader Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) and his pleasure model lover, Pris (Darryl Hannah) use a dying inventor, J.F. Sebastian (William Sanderson) to get close to Tyrell and murder him. Deckard tracks the pair to Sebastian's, where a bloody and violent final confrontation between Deckard and Batty takes place on a skyscraper rooftop high above the city. This digitally re-mastered version of the film features extended scenes and improved visual effects approved by the director in order to better reflect his original vision.
