Summary

Rick Deckard prowls the steel-and-microchip jungle of 21st-century Los Angeles. He's a "blade runner" stalking genetically-made criminal replicants. His assignment: kill them. Their crime: wanting to be human. This new version omits Deckard's voiceover narration, develops in slightly greater detail the romance between Deckard and Rachael, and removes the "uplifting" finale.
