    • Wait, the scene with Deckard going to the snake salesman? That's fixed, in "The Final Cut". The cut where they used Harrison's son's jaw/mouth and it now matches and is fixed. Have you not seen "Blade Runner The Final Cut"? Yeah, and I'm gunna side with the writer and with the Director on Deckard being a replicant, but I did always had a the feeling he was a replicant. It doesn't matter what anyone feels about what Deckard is, the Director, Sir Ridley Scott, says he is a replicant. However, just because Sir Ridley Scott "loves the idea" Blade Runner can(is?) in the same universe as the Alien/Prometheus/Total Recall 2077 TV and movies....well.....that's better than Soldier being a part of the shared universe. Today i found out: The original movie has 4 novel tie-ins? Not written by Dick. There's 3 video games, I thought there was only 1. The latest one is a VR game, it came out in 2018.

  • It makes sense that, in the movie, Deckard is a replicant. But I never found it satisfying. I wanted the take away to be that humans could be just as "other" as replicants.

  • Sorry I disagree Decker is not a replicant, he wasn't in the source material as far as I remember, and certainly not in the original release, but the Director's cut does seem to indicate he MAY be one . One of the thing that never made sense is the 4 year like span. I mean for such an expensive product , even a military version, 4 years is nothing so it would make sense that not all replicants die after 4 years , it makes no economic sense. Why not just have mental reboot after 4 years ? If you can layer false memories and per-program military skills then a reboot seems simpler. can you say plot hole , I knew you could ........Still one of my favorite movies since I first saw it , narration and all, in 1982 and yes i to was 19 yrs old.

  • Having read the book, I always thought it was clear that Ridley Scott chose to make a film not about the Deckard in the book, but about Phil Resch, the Blade Runner Deckard meets at the sham police station. He took that idea and rebuilt the plot of the movie around the idea of the force hunting Replicants being Replicants themselves, for the same reasons you mention here Adam ;)

  • I came across this neat alternative scene from an earlier script of Blade Runner on the Blade Runner Wikia that might have inspired the depiction of the aforementioned Mr House: "It was originally intended that the Tyrell Batty crushed would be revealed to be a replicant, and as a result, Batty would head up to the next floor, where he would discover the real Tyrell in cryogenic suspension. Sebastian would then explain that an incurable disease struck Tyrell, who had himself frozen until a cure is found.

  • In the original theatrical release, there is a scene with Deckard in the kitchen. He turns his head, and his eyes have the eerie backlit glow - same as Rachel.

  • I love talking about Blade Runner. Like you this movie changed my life. And like so many of us in this community I have seen all the versions. And while I find the final final final version to be beautiful I did not like the lack of commentary. Yes, Harrison Ford's flat dialogue wasn't so great. However I think the film noir style commentary was a good thing. Before my sons and I saw BR 2049 I took them to see the final version. I wasn't lost because I had seen every version and read the book etc... My sons were completely lost and kept asking me what the heck was going on.

  • I think the clues being relied on to form the opinion Deckard is a replicant are cherry picked. There are plenty of other clues which point to him being human. Wondering is the point, arriving at a definitive answer is not.

  • Is deckard a replicant will still be debated in a hundred years from now lol. The answer is yes. It’s Ridley Scott’s movie and he intended him to be a replicant. End of story. Do androids dream of electric sheep is not blade runner and the fact they kicked Ridley off the film does not change the fact that it is ridleys movie. I don’t even care what the writers say. They wrote a script. Ridley made the movie it’s his decision. The rest is irrelevant. Thank you and goodnight lol. 😁

  • "Is Deckard a Replicant?" is perhaps the most important question in Blade Runner. The answer however is a lot less important.

    Anders ÖhlundAnders Öhlund13 päivää sitten
    • Ridley Scott says he definitely is and Harrison Ford vehemently claims he is not. And I almost think that's on purpose because the uncertainty and vagueness is a lot more interesting than an actual answer. I'm however now a lot more interested in the questions of 2049. Basically asking the questions "Is X real? What does that even mean? And does it actually matter?" Personally I think JOI is perhaps the most interesting character in the movie regarding those questions. Is she real or just "Everything you want to see/hear". Can she be real to K even if she is not? Is his relationship with her real if she is not? Also are K's memories real even if they are not his? Blade Runner asks many of the same questions but 2049 just asks them on so many levels

      Anders ÖhlundAnders Öhlund11 päivää sitten
  • Also, is the four year limit real? And if so, is it programmable or a built in limit to replicant technology. Rachel and Deckard are the only known replicants that defy the four year limit.

  • Deckard is Robocop. Tyrel would sell his replicants wherever he could, so why not a replicant as a cop? not computers, they're physical. Are replicants grown like clones, or put together like Frankenstein's monster? Could it be a baseline human that is given engineered body parts? Implanting memories would mean a type of immortality. The technology that allows placing memories could allow the recording of memories. Sell replicants as immortality vessels.

  • I'm surprised I never see it brought up how likely it is that Gaff's memories were used to build Deckard's personality. It seems really obvious to me. Gaff used to be the top blade runner until he got hurt, so Deckard is made with his memories to take over to fight the more advanced replicants. This is why Gaff didn't speak english through the whole movie until the end, so that he didn't make the truth dawn on Deckard. Obviously it's also why Deckard dreams of the unicorn, and Gaff makes the unicorn origami and matchstick figure. It's pretty cool that in Deckard's generation even dreams are implanted in the replicants. Also, this is probably why Gaff lets Deckard and Rachael escape at the end. He empathizes with them, and he was probably working with Tyrell to create a better replicant.

  • If Deckard is a Replicant then what NEXUS model is he? He's not a 6 that's for sure because their lifespan is only 4 years & we do see him alive & well in 2049 so definitely not a 6. He's not a 7 because Rachael is the prototype Nexus 7 & the reason why Tyrell had Deckard administer the VK machine was to test out the 7. Nexus 8 were created later & the Nexus 9 is K. It just doesn't add up to Deckard being a Replicant. He's definitely a human. Teasing the whole "is he a Replicant?" is just a pure mindfuck from Ridley Scott.

  • The image of the cityscape that Ridley Scott envisaged is that of where he was born, Southbank in Middleborough. It's a grim post industrial area which used to be the most deprived part of the UK by some margin. Southbank is sandwiched between old docks and coke works for the steel works and overlooks the ICI chemical plant. The Bladerunner city vision is remarkably close to what you see at night.

  • Deckard is a replicant depending on the day of the week you watch the film. If you watch on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, he's a replicant. If you watch on Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday he's a human. (Perhaps I'm restating the obvious here, but you should not watch Blade Runner on Tuesdays.)

  • I kinda think the Dekard narration makes the film feel more Film Noirish.

    SteverinoSteverino15 päivää sitten
  • Deckard must be a prototype generation replicant that wasn't finished originally, but then completed later on, explaining why he was given only human-level strength but also an extended lifespan; thereby allowing him to believe that he was the original human.

  • There may be clues that suggest Deckard is a replicant. It may well have even been Ridley Scott's intention that Deckard is a replicant (though I think this has been retconned). What I will forever maintain, however, is if Deckard is a replicant, the entire message and point of the movie is lost. The whole theme is that Deckard is a man, a human man, who - through his gruesome and merciless work - has lost his humanity and his respect for life. He has become no better than a killing machine. He gains his redemption and his humanity back through falling in love with Rachel, a replicant, and through watching another replicant, Roy Batty, show compassion, mercy, and a love and respect for life. If Deckard is a replicant, then it's just a pointless circle jerk.

    Michael TótinMichael Tótin16 päivää sitten
  • I strongly disagree with Adam Savage. In the source material. Deckard is very clearly human. According to the screen writers. Deckard is a human. One whole point of the movie is what makes a human a human and Deckards view of the replicants as broken machines that he has no trouble using and throwing away. If Deckard is a replicant. Then the entire movie might as well be a dream, as it's told from a his perspective and if his perspective is synthetic. Then the whole movie is fake. The replicants were outlawed on earth because of the Nexus 6 revolt. This is what created the need for BladeRunners and what got Deckard transferred from being a regular detective. If he was a replicant it would be illegal for him to be out on the street. He'd have to be offworld or contained at Tyrell corp. Everyone else in the movie would also have to know that he was a replicant. Making your dream movie an impossible conspiracy. I'm sorry and I know Ridley Scott's opinion on the matter. But the idea of Deckard being a replicant is just stupid and ruins the movie. But that's just my opinion.

    Großer MaikGroßer Maik16 päivää sitten
  • While I absolutely think Deckard is a replicant, and it is so in keeping with the story being a noir, I realized recently that the simplest argument *against* Deckard being a replicant is that it would mean M Emmet Walsh's cop character either has a *perfect poker face*, or he's a brilliant actor pretending to be a cop, hiding the fact that he knows Deckard is a replicant. But that just plays into what Adam is saying about the movie being a little flawed, as most noirs are when you examine them too closely.

    Kareem BadrKareem Badr16 päivää sitten
  • Ok but why then would Tyrell make the worst replicant in the world to clean up his own messes? The reason Deckard gets wrecked by the replicants the whole film is that he’s human. Otherwise we have to believe Tyrell thought making a crappier replicant to kill better replicants is a smart plan.

  • Aren't we all replicants? My take away from all the human-like android storylines that have come up in recent years is that if they act human, and don't have metal parts, they are basically human. We are just machines as well. And if we were perfect and never made mistakes then we would truly be androids, just as the replicants, cylons, etc. making mistakes, makes then human.

(The only one that came into that store.) It has the best 3D holographic picture in a Plexiglas block that I have ever seen. Having read the story "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" I thought Decker was a replicant before the movie ever came out. My favorite seen is where the Photograph briefly comes to life.

  • lol, the old "Deckard is a replicant" debate. For me, he is NOT. The biggest reason for me is, if Tyrel came up with the solution to his expiring replicant problem by placing Deckard in the Blade Runner unit (and who says it was Tyrell's decision) why would Tyrell place an inferior model there to hunt them down? From a physical stand point, Deckard got his ass handed to him time and time again throughout the movie, and I do feel he did exhibit tremendous pain throughout.

  • If Deckard is a replicant created by Tyrell for the purpose of hunting other replicants, he should be at least as strong as the replicants he hunts. However, that is not the case. Deckard gets beat up by the other replicants throughout the movie and his only change to defeat them is always his gun. Just because Tyrell is a tech billionaire doesn't mean he has his own police force. Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates all don't have their own armies or investigative agencies. Why should Tyrell? And why should Tyrell care much at all? If Deckard is a replicant, it's a story about a replicant who kills other replicants, falls in love with another replicant as a replicant, and whose replicant life ends up being spared by a replicant. How is that a more interesting story than the blurring of the line between human and replicant by the human falling in love with a replicant and being spared by a replicant who ends up showing more humanity than the actual human? Drawing conclusions from the analysis of Deckard's emotions is nonsensical in that Harrison Ford himself believes that Deckard is a human being and, by his own admission, played him as such. In case it is not clear yet: I disagree with the theory that Deckard is a replicant.😉

  • Went to see the ultimate director's cut a couple of years back, when they had it for a week only in cinemas because of the 35 year (if memory serves) anniversary of the original release. Of course, I'd seen it before but never on the big screen. It was glorious. You see, a couple of weeks before I was at the cinema as well for one of the MCU movies, can't remember which, doesn't matter, and in addition to the regular annoyances of going to the cinema (people loudly crunching chips or slurping their drinks and the like) there was this group of young-ish people (20 somethings maybe) in the same row or maybe one or two rows ahead of where I was sitting who'd obviously dragged one of their friends in to see a Marvel movie when he wasn't interested in it at all. During the entire movie, this guy kept fairly loudly voicing his opinion of how much of a BS movie he thought it was, playing on his phone (muted, but every couple of minutes this big bright screen would turn on in the corner of my eyes, distracting from the movie) and just generally making a nuisance of himself. Not so at the Blade Runner showing, no one crunching snacks or futzing with bags of chips, the loudest anyone ever got was a subdued cough; I'd say you could hear a pin drop, if not for the heavy carpets. It was fantastic. I guess that's the difference between going to see a big blockbuster on release and going to see a for fans only showing of a 30+ year old movie (paid full price for both though, well worth it).

  • Hey! If it we're not for duct tape, no film would ever get made. Also, I concluded Deckard was a replicant when I realized everyone who was left on Earth was old or infirmed. Gaf had a limp and he was a cop. Only the replicants are capable or super capable. It set in for me when I saw the second floating advert above LA for the Off-World Colonies and wondered why so many people were hobbled, sick shuffling down the streets. And, not already on a ship to a "brighter tomorrow", instead of staying in the endless poverty and pollution of the slums. The rigor of space travel excluded them from leaving. Recall Sabastians line when he takes Priss back to his sprawling and empty building. "There's plenty of room. There's no one around"

  • I don't know. If you want to make sure your problematic robots are kept in check and found, you might want to use a non-robot to do it. Because if they can err then you probably don't want to rely on them to also fix that problem.

    • Yeah, if you don’t trust replicants you definitely would be afraid that your replicant would figure out what it was and join the other side.

  • Respectfully, got to disagree that Deckard is a replicant. It makes his story entirely pointless if he's a replicant.

    • I’m not sure it would be pointless, but nevertheless I agree, he is human 100%.

    • Also the entire premise of 2049 is Wallace wants to find what he believes is the child of a human (Deckard) and a replicant (Rachel). On top of that, how is Deckard the only replicant that managed to live on for another 30 years, especially if all the replicants of that time had built in life expectancies? I think his entire character arc is to redefine what one believes to be “human”. He originally views them simply as rogue machines that he has to retire, but eventually comes to see them as beings of unique memories, capable of complex emotion, to the point where he actually falls in love with one.

  • I never liked how 2049 destroys the Deckard replicant mystery

  • For me the narration makes it film noir. Not that I don't respect and love the Ultimate version. No action hero shows a reaction to pain unless the director wants them to.

  • I thought in interviews that Ridley Scott said Deckard is a replicant because he found the unicorn that he dreamt about earlier in the film?

  • Deckard is a replicant in Ridley Scott's _Director's_ _Cut_ and _Final_ _Cut_ . In the theatrical release and book, he is a human, he is a replicant, or _everyone_ is a replicant. Dick and Francher left the question unanswered on purpose _to_ _make_ _us_ _think_

  • Now for a very unpopular opinion. I will tread lightly. The fact that so many cuts exists speaks volumes about how little underlying substance there is to the film. If I’m not mistaken Ridley Scott has changed his opinion on a number of occasions. Regarding Deckard that is. As a story and a script it’s mess. Visually and sound, set and prop design it is the masterpiece that everyone speaks of. I like the first Bladerunner. But it’s boring. I’m of the opinion that the follow up is a better movie per se.

  • To quote Riley Scott on the replicant question: “ Of course he is, you’d have to be a fucking moron to miss it”

  • Decker is not a replicant. It doesn't make any sense in the context of the story, and it doesn't add anything to the story if he is. I don't care what Adam and Ridley Scott say.
