“Blade Runner” quotes(1982)
Plot – Rick Deckard lives in a big city and is a “blade runner”, an identifier and exterminator of replicants, artificial beings created to be used in the space colonies. Although Deckard is tired of killing and would like to retire, the police is looking for him: they want him as he is the only one able to “call in” four Nexus 6 replicants who have illegally returned to Earth to take revenge for the four-year short life that was given them. Forced to accept, Deckard meets Tyrell, the creator of Nexus 6, and uses the Voight-Kempff test – the only system capable to distinguish a replicant from a human - on Rachael, Tyrell's secretary. The woman turns out to be a replicant, nevertheless the two fall in love. The hunt carries on and the policeman will find his preys one by one. First Zhora, a beautiful woman who dances with snakes in a nightclub; the second is Leon, a replicant that has already committed a homicide; then Pris, who will fight strenuously. The last one is Batty, the head of the rebel replicants, who after killing Tyrell starts looking for Deckard to avenge his companions. The two will fight till death, but the dying replicant will deliver a lesson of life to Deckard.
