Early in the 21st Century, THE
TYRELL CORPORATION advanced Robot evolution into the NEXUS
phase - a being virtually identical to a human - known as
The NEXUS 6 Replicants were superior in strength and agility,
and at least equal in intelligence, to the genetic engineers
who created them. Replicants were used Off-world as slave
labour, in the hazardous exploration and colonization of other
After a bloody mutiny by a NEXUS 6 combat team in an Off-world
colony, Replicants were declared illegal on earth - under penalty
Special police squads - BLADE
RUNNER UNITS - had orders to shoot to kill, upon
detection, any trespassing Replicant.
This was not called execution. It was called retirement.
Deckard (Harrison Ford), ex-cop, ex-bladerunner, ex-killer,
is forced by the police boss to return to his former profession
of Replicant Hunter.
He is assigned to eliminate four Replicants who fled the slavery
of the colonies and came to Earth. Before starting the job
Deckard visits the Tyrell Corporation where he meets Rachel,
a Replicant girl created as an experiment, with whom he will
fall in love.
After some investigations, he is able to discover the first
of the four Replicants: Zhora. There ensues a relentless pursuit
through the streets of the metropolis in which Deckard succeeds
in eliminating Zhora but is himself attacked by another of
the replicants: Leon. Just as Deckard is about to be killed,
Rachel intervenes and shoots the Replicant, saving Deckard's
life. There are still two Replicants remaining: Pris and Roy.
Roy is their leader and the most advanced Replicant of all.
The fight with them will be spectacular, with a finale that
you absolutely mustn't miss!.
Blade Runner is a science fiction film that met with little
success in the original theatre release, but then its fame
grew incredibly to the point of becoming "the cult movie
of the 80's!" Released in 1982, becoming a cult favorite
for its fans, Bladerunner has been subjected to an attentive
analysis of both technical details and plot minutia. This
process has proven useful in answering the dozens of questions
raised for discussion by the most dedicated fans. The collections
of these questions and answers are called FAQ (Frequently
Asked Questions) and could be found anywhere on the Internet.
I have chosen, in this site, to publish all of the material
in a narrative format rather than as a FAQ, but that doesn't
mean that you won't find almost all the information here that
you would find in a "FAQ site".
