After over three decades Ridley Scott’s dystopian sci-fi epic is every bit as dazzling and moving as it was when it hit the screens. It’s ending packs a powerful punch when (SPOILER… sort of) when the main villain experiences a very abrupt shift which successfully creates an unexpected sense of empathy for the character. It’s the sort of twist that completely changes your perspective on not only the character, but the film and even life itself. It’s that powerful!
