YES! Let me explain it to you.

Now, I have not seen a good eplantion yet, maybe someone else has wirtten this. but here we go.

Decard is and replicant. Confirmed by Scott.

How? well, he was made as a prototype that could procreate. He was programmed to be horny and full of lust, he is not the brightest model, but has charm.

He has not been able to impregnate any humans, he follow up on this. Tyrell makes another prototype, female. To see if they can make replicant offspring.

Jose Butler

Confirmed by Scott.
And denied by literally everyone else who worked on the original Blade Runner, from the screenwriter, person who played him to the novel writer. And his state is intentionally made ambiguous in the new one.

Xavier Jackson

Deckard being a replicant completely ruins the point of the first film, and Scott is a hack.

Michael Collins

Why bother with this? He is a replicant. The person who created the character says so and you're a moron if you don't believe it or see it. Showed the film to my girlfriend the other night and she was asking if he was a replicant as soon as he gave the first VK test. I love Blade Runner. It's one of my favourite films. You have to be a complete faggot in denial to hold such a strong resentment to the idea that he is a robot and ignore how that makes the narrative even more compelling. Especially considering how you have Gosling's character believe he is human and come to terms with it. Pottery.

The real theory you need to be discussing is whose memories does he have and why are they Gaff's?

Ian Flores
Ian Flores

The person who created the character says so
Literally the opposite of what Phillip K. Dick says, what are you on about?

Oh, did you think Ridley Scott wrote the original story Blade Runner was an adaptation of?

Carter King
Carter King

It doesn't make the narrative more compelling. It does the opposite. Scott didn't even have the idea of Deckard being a replicant until years after the movie was completed. Harrison Ford himself attests to that.

Aiden Ward
Aiden Ward

makes the narrative even more compelling
The narrative is about an artificial being who is more human than the actual human being sent to kill him. If Deckard was just another robot then how the fuck does that make the narrative more compelling you fucking mongoloid

Michael Edwards

BTFO this hard
How he will recover bros?

Jeremiah Gray

I'm a huge fan of sci-fi literature and am capable of viewing the two as separate entities and being rational about it, which you, clearly, are not - otherwise you would come up with some compelling reason to suggest why every one should view the inspiration for a story as gospel in dictating the derivative's entire existence. The film was inspired by the story and isn't an elaborated version. If you believe it is then clearly you didn't read the story. If you did read the story then please note how the film uses it as the basis for a new idea and changes A LOT in addition to the central chacter's status as a human.

Dominic Flores
Dominic Flores

The entire point of both films is that it doesn't matter.

Dylan Reyes
Dylan Reyes

Op here, I swa the first one long ago, boring film. yes it has been retconned he is a replicant, I was just explaining why it makes sense, cause people are arguing it does not makes sense as he has been around for years yada yada... My explanation makes sense.

With the new film, they could just copy Rachael and have her inseminated with human sperm.

I think in light of the new film, and that Rachael had a child, Decard is one.

Bentley Barnes
Bentley Barnes

it has to be a human hunting artificial intelligence to be profound
MUH human being mechanical hunting a robot who is being emotional is as deep as my logic can fathom
The signs of an underage faggot trying to impose an edgy way of thinking as if it were fact and not realising how boring it is. The nuance linked into the fact that he is actually a machine hunting machines because they are becoming to emotional is clearly lost on you. And to miss the staggering amount of foreshadowing the film offers really makes me question your intelligence.
ignoring the situational existence of the protagonist
ignoring his routine behaviour
ignoring the clear insight Gaff has into his mind and the way he is handled by the police

To say he is human is to say the plot is mundane and as boring as it gets.

Isaac Bailey
Isaac Bailey

this is what smart people sound like to brainlets

Carson White

Actually the point is that Deckard is human in body but Roy the Replicant, while not a human, is more human then him.

Parker Jenkins
Parker Jenkins

ignoring that Scott only made Deckard into a replicant years after the film's release and had to splice in unused footage from a completely different movie for it to make any sense
ignoring that everyone else involved with the film thinks the idea of Deckard being a replicant is stupid

Jeremiah Perez
Jeremiah Perez

Deckard always are a replicant

William Jones
William Jones

yeah that's why Ridley had to put footage from Legend into the film

Hudson Martinez
Hudson Martinez

tfw you realize that everybody is a replicant and humans are long extinct.

Jason Diaz
Jason Diaz

Wait what's this about Legend footage in Bladerunner? I've never heard of this

Camden Myers
Camden Myers

Deckard's unicorn dream is b-roll from Legend.

Dominic White
Dominic White

Scott didn't even have the idea of Deckard being a replicant until years after the movie was completed. Harrison Ford himself attests to that.
This is complete horseshit. Fuck you.

The unicorn sequence was filmed before the movie came out and was always intended to be there. Scott was furious because it was taken out.

And that part about Ford is a complete lie. He himself has said him and Ridley had fights about it at the time.

'Deckard is human!' fags are the fucking worst. The point of the movie anyway was that 'replicants' were humans with genetic enhancements, so by being so butthurt about Deckard not being 'human' you're essentially saying you don't understand the movie and fell into Ridley's trap i.e. that you're a pleb.

b-but everyone else!
Only Ford preferred him to be human, and even he has long since stopped giving a fuck because even HE finally got it. The writers deliberately left mixed messages.

TL;dr this:

Jace Russell
Jace Russell

bullshit

Josiah Morris
Josiah Morris

he's a replicant

nobody can live in las vegas because of the radiation

earlier generations of replicants were specifically engineered to be able to work in hazardous environments

deckard lives in las vegas

the dog is synthetic too

Aiden Cooper
Aiden Cooper

Human Deckard
being able to live in a nominally enriched tritium atmosphere

Caleb Morales

Deckard being a replicant completely ruins the point of the first film, and Scott is a hack.
That's true but I think Villeneneuve salvages it and makes it better.

There's no reason for Deckard to be replicant in the first blade runner but in the second it adds depth in my opinion. In the end it doesn't matter though.

Parker Young
Parker Young

Deckard being a replicant was a stupid idea in the old movie and it's a stupid idea still. I'm pretty glad the new one left it ambigous.

Nathaniel Harris
Nathaniel Harris

lol is that true?

Blake Perez
Blake Perez

This has been long debunked. The footage was shot exclusively for Blade Runner.

Blake Ortiz
Blake Ortiz

Leto was awful but you should have at least listened to his sing song bleating with Deckard.

Villeneuve knows he is a relicant.

Jose Hughes
Jose Hughes

What the fuck are you talking about? Are you trying to say the atmosphere in Blade Runner is lethally radioactive?
Did you think about that for more than three seconds?

Alexander Brown
Alexander Brown

Did you watch the the same movie?

Isaiah Thompson
Isaiah Thompson

I don't know what "nominal" means

Liam Miller
Liam Miller

If its supposed to be ambiguous, then why try to make it seem that Deckard is 100% a replicant? How is that any different then saying that Deckard is 100% a human?

Adam Hill
Adam Hill

Why would they make a blade runner replicant who isn't as strong or clever as the replicants he's sent to hunt down?

Julian Kelly
Julian Kelly

It ruins the point of the second movie too because it's about a baby born from a Replicant/Human couple.

William Barnes
William Barnes

People who get hung up on this question are missing the point.

It doesn't matter.

Owen Gray
Owen Gray

The pure fact that people like to think Deckard is a replicant shows they do not understand the original movie.

Sebastian Rivera
Sebastian Rivera

The pure fact that people think it matters one way or the other shows they don't understand the original movie

Chase Richardson

"How do you like our *massive fart noise* Owl?"

Jaxson Cooper
Jaxson Cooper

That was Ridley's choice, not the writers

Noah Russell
Noah Russell

I've considered both possibilites and I think him being a replicant adds more to the story of both BR and 2049

Gavin Gutierrez
Gavin Gutierrez

Haven't seen 2049 but read it confirms deckhard is a replicant. Is that not the case.

Jayden Bailey
Jayden Bailey

It doesn't make any fucking sense though. In the original film Rachel was the only confirmed nexus 7, and even she had a 4 year lifespan, so why the fuck would Deckard live for another 30 years?

And if Deckard IS a new model, why does he get his ass handed to him by everyone?

Ryder Nelson
Ryder Nelson

And if Deckard IS a new model, why does he get his ass handed to him by everyone

perhaps part of the deception is to give him human levels of strength, endurance, etc. If Deckard was able to go toe to toe with Roy, it might have raised suspicion.

Anthony Diaz
Anthony Diaz

you're assuming the radiation levels have been nominal the entire time Deckard has been living there. Which is a stretch.

Austin Smith
Austin Smith

No it doesn't. The whole plot is about Deckard, a human, having a child with a replicant

Henry Young
Henry Young

I don't understand how half lives work

Parker Cruz
Parker Cruz

You utter fucking brainlet the whole point is that REPLICANTS can reproduce on their own not humans you ggod damm MORAN

Charles Bennett
Charles Bennett

It is hinted Rachael is an open ended model, also he has human level strength because he is supposed to pass for human and inseminate them.. but it does not work, so Tryell make Rachael, as I said in the beginning of this tread. Op out.

Sebastian Nelson
Sebastian Nelson

Yeah dumbass and they're also compatible with humans you absolute retard

Wyatt Morgan
Wyatt Morgan

Do you not understand why Vegas had been abandoned in the new movie?

Adam Wilson
Adam Wilson

What? When is that ever said? The whole appeal for Wallace is that he can send a bunch of replicants to colonize a planet and not have to worry about replacing them with new models.

Ethan Rivera
Ethan Rivera

I guess he never played Fallout: New Vegas
