The Ultimate Workprint (151 minutes)
Here we have the final chapters. I've looked at a few different versions now, and it's always nice to see how people prefer their endings. Lets look and see how Shuwest cut his -
The workprint version of Batty's last few moments as been used here, this to me has a nice fitting voiceover. Gaff is seen asking Deckard if he really is a man.
Out of all the new scenes that Shuwest has painfully edited over much of his time, the ending that now follows the lift doors closing, get my vote for best edited sequence. I`m not even totally sure why, its a combination of audio matching, and carefully selecting the scenes that will do best. This version see's Deckard and Rachael in his car with Deckard talking how he loved Rachael, and her reply being it was the best day of her life. the 1-2-1 dialog between them has been omitted, and this concludes with the aerial shot off to the distance, and the credits now roll.
I will start off and say my sincere apologies for not completing this review earlier. excuses I'd rather not go into! Shuwest has done a great job here, lots of planning and preporation has pulled off. We have a mix of the FC, WP and extras places into an order that makes this version unique. It is the little things here that made this version a great movie to watch again, indeed, the inclusion of previously unseen trailers and commerical clips presented via the DVD menu, make this particular disc a worth addition to my collection. I take this opportunity to say to Shuwest something quite unique, and you may have not heard this before - "You've done a man's sir".- Gary Carden.
