    ★★★

    After finishing the book with its screaming 80s nostalgia the film fell a little short by pandering to my own 20s-30s generation instead. It lacked a lot of the heart and love of the book and became a predictable standard action adventure. The CGI work was fantastic however.

    Great refreshing film in which everyone is totally honest about being a criminal.

    But disappointing given all the buildup and it’s prestige.

    Did I like it? I've read the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and to say this film is based on the book is a gross exaggeration. Instead it 'inspires' the film. Obviously I was watching the director's cut as it is supposedly the only version worth watching and I feel it did well to capture the bleak truth of future life. I think it requires a few rewatches to get more insight. I did however love the character of Roy Baty and the final two acts with Pris and then Roy.
