A group of illegal androids led by Roy Batty escapes an attack from one of the scientists and goes on a killing spree. The scientist, Dr. Tyrell, then realizes the android “replicants” are becoming more human than the humans themselves. To save his creation and to stop the android menace before it is too late, he orders a “blade runner” (a police-like officer) to destroy all androids that were made by his company. The blade runner of this film is Rick Deckard.
What is the plot of the story?
In “Blade Runner”, the story begins at a time when the life of human beings has become almost completely alienated from the other forms of life. At that time, the film takes place in Los Angeles, and around it, a great deal of destruction is being seen, and this mainly occurs because of overpopulation. To control overpopulation, limits are placed on families. And people are allowed to have only one child per family. However, when this law is put into practice, many families “abort” their children, which increases the human population. And as a result of that increase in population, there are few jobs available for the people who live there.

What are the difficulties they face?
The main difficulty that Deckard faces is his doubt as to whether he is a human or not. At the end of the film, Deckard finds out that he is not human but a replicant, and then kills himself. In “Blade Runner”, the theme of self-doubt is used very well in the story. Many characters throughout the film have doubts about their purpose and role in life, and this is symbolized through Deckard’s character. Palmer (Harrison Ford) is an ex-cop who has a mission to find an android named Roy Batty.
Who has escaped from a space shuttle that was being dismantled?
In his search for Batty. He discovers that the other humans are replicants themselves, designed to be slaves to the owners of replicants (who would be called “giant corporations”). He finds himself in a world that feels artificial. Controlled by people with mindsets, not humans.
Who is the antagonist? What are its motives?
The antagonist of the story is a group of androids that are escaping from their battleship, which has been destroyed. The leader of this group is Roy Batty. The antagonist’s motives are that they want freedom and they want to be able to live their lives as they see fit. They don’t want to be controlled by any other people or groups. The main theme of this film is the relationship between life and death. There have been many people who try to control life and bring it to an end. A recent example of this is Hitler’s attempt to eliminate the Jews.
In addition, religion has also been used to influence life and death decisions in many ways. For example, some religions believe that if a person does something bad, his/her soul will be “sent to hell” or “to limbo”. This belief stands behind many acts of abuse and murder by people.
Would you recommend watching this?
I would recommend “Blade Runner” to everyone, but I think that it is best suited for those people who want to understand the film and who enjoy the world of science fiction. If the viewer likes this type of film, then he/she will be able to relate very well to it and may enjoy seeing how a futuristic society looks and how it works. Thanks for reading!
