THERE are cult movies - and then again there are cult movies.

Ridley Scott's Blade Runner is obviously an iconic movie and one which has taken him 25 years to piece together in this version.

And it was certainly worthwhile.

As a piece of cinema inspiration it was years ahead of the rest and now as cinema history it was a worthwhile project.

The work has been re-mastered and re-stored, but remains the leading example of the time of so many talented and creative people working in one studio on the one project.

The story remains the same, obviously.

Harrison Ford is our hero on the trail of illegal cloned humans with the action set against a city scene which was, simply, years ahead of its time.

Ridley Scott's re-cutting and re-editing has certainly been worthwhile.
