Blade Runner is a 1982 American neo-noir dystopian science fiction film, based on the 1968 novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.

It depicts a grim futuristic Los Angeles, in which genetically engineered replicants is banned from Earth and are exclusively used in dangerous work settings on off-world colonies. Replicants who defy the ban and return to Earth are hunted down and "retired" by special police operatives known as "Blade Runners".

In 1993, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". Blade Runner is now regarded by many critics as one of the best science fiction films ever made. (Wikipedia)
