Due to have a sequel, do you think that this science fiction original can ever be followed - or bettered?
I used to love this film. Until I found out that Ridley Scott thought Deckard was a replicant.

Not only does that idea not make any sense, since Deckard is physically inferior to the replicants he hunts, but it robs the film of its meaning.

We see Leon the replicant collect photographs. We see Deckard collect photographs. If Deckard is human, we get to compare and contrast and say hey, the replicants are just like us. If Deckard is a replicant, then the message of the film is "all replicants neurotically collect photographs" Way to go Ridley!

Doubt it - you please yourself! There's at least one, if not two re-edits I haven't even seen, so who knows what the aggregate agreed excellence of it turns out to be?
I've decided not to skulk in corners any more and say defiantly -"Sod you all, I preferred the original voice-over". Apparently, in devotee circles, I'm "wrong". I promise not to care if you don't.

What do people think of the original ending?
Enhance, Enhance, Enhance...... Oh sorry! I was looking into their eyes to see if they were a replicant.

I seen this up at the store for 7 bucks it was the final cut. Still debating on whether to buy or not. I like most of the movie, but some areas I find boring.

I think the film is better without that voiceover. I don’t like the green tint on the final version. And I don’t like the original ending.

I agree with alpha that making Deckard a replicant ruins the meaning

Really this should be my type of movie, but aside from Roy Batty’s moving final speech I didn’t care for it.
