Crysis and Unreal used to render astonishingly faithful movie scenes

A site called Game Artist just announced the winners from their "Scene from a Movie" real-time environment competition. Participants used the Crysis and Unreal engines to recreate a moment from a movie. The results are nothing short of impressive. The winner was a scene from Blade Runner (pictured), which has the added advantage of being a really flashy movie. That's going to be a tough one to beat when you're doing a basement from X-Men 2 (the fourth place winner). Still, you can't argue with the amazing amount of work that obviously went into recreating Blade Runner's dystopian Los Angeles. Click on the image below for a better look.

The runners up were, in order, scenes from Hook, X-Men 2, I Am Legend, and Aliens. You can see them all here.
