    "I'm a big PK Dick fan, but I saw this adaptation long before I got into his work. I watched it as just a movie, granting it a lot more leeway to be simply an enjoyable film. That said, now that I've read a lot of Dick's work, this movie isn't the greatest. It isn't a failure by any means, but the description tells the truth when it states that it is "loosely based" on the story. This wouldn't be where I would start if I was looking for films based on Dick's work."

    "The 1982 Ridley Scott Blade Runner was a staple in my household growing up. For it's time it was an amazing piece of cinematic story telling and visually stunning. Harrison Ford is well cast as Dekkard (the main character) and in my opinion this movie is timeless. I would recommend purchasing this and having a family movie night."

    "If you are into popular science fiction movies than you have more than likely seen an adaptation of one of Philip K. Dick adaptations. Minority Report is a great read. It lets you see the origins of the great movie and experience the root of it's Sci-Fi madness."

    "If you read the book, see the movie. If you saw the movie, read the book. I imagine most sci-fi fans have done both. I think Philip K. Dick is probably the most prolific novel to movie screen around. His stories are both entertaining and they make you think."

    "Thrilling is a stretch for this abomination. There was no thrilling at all here. I haven't been this bored since the Notebook. A sad sad excuse of a film. Alanis Morrisette is in it tthough so that's a plus, ironically, don't ya think?"

    "A solid Philip K. Dick adaption, with a faithful take on one of Dick's favorite themes, the question and problem of identity. Well acted, deftly directed and skillfully realized, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie."
