I think it's more than aspects. I think it's as important as a neo-noir work as it is a seminal cyberpunk landmark. It's Logan's Run meets The Big Sleep. If the sequel doesn't treat noir as essential to the franchise, I've no interest.

The voiceover that Ford did for the film was added later. And that's a big part of what gave it a noir-ish feel.
Aside for the post-apocalyptic and speculative fiction mise en scène, I can't think of anything in the film that's not noir. Like Chinatown, it's almost a pity it was shot in color.

Pretty much everything that Rok and JStraw says is spot on. The film noir aspect alongside of an overcrowded Chinatown makes this movie special. Even though it's a sci-fi made in the early 80's it still doesn't seem outdated which is extremely rare.
I was referencing the film "Chinatown", which also is noir...aside from most of it being shot in bright sunshine.
