** Blade Runners operate as individuals in areas where a large scale police operation would alert any replicants on the run. Bryant is not 'right there', He's allowing Deckard to do his job. He shows up to post 'Retirement' incidents.

*** I always interpreted the entire hunt as Roy teaching Deckard a lesson. What better way to avenge his fallen comrades but at the same time honor their quest for life, than to metephorically "kill" the Blade Runner but at the same time giving the man a new sense of his life?

** It's also possible that the Tyrell Corporation isn't able to make those modifications. The Replicants are clearly very organic in nature, and based off humans. The Nexus 6 model is the first model to surpass human strength and agility. It took six iterations before they were able to expand on the basic human form in subtle ways, like strength and speed. Major alterations to the human form might simply be beyond their reash for now.

* Why do they send just one Blade Runner after four Replicants? The one at the beggining is shot through a wall, yet he's replaced by just one other guy, who then proceeds to have his ass kicked by all four of them. Why isn't Deckard assigned at least two partners?

*** Which would you prefer, a slave that acts in inhuman, odd ways, or one that acts like a human because it thinks it is a human?

*** Except ''human'' slaves rebel too. Indeed, having emotions and memories from the start would only give them ''reason'' to rebel, because being a slave is going to be a lot more intolerable if you can remember a time when you didn't have to work so hard (childhood), and if you experience the degradation and hardship viscerally/emotionally, not just intellectually. Plus, replicants employed as hands-on laborers can't actually be expected to ''stay'' fooled, because utilizing SuperStrength at your job or remaining unharmed by the hazardous environment where you're working will immediately contradict any overlain memories you might have of being a "real" human.

* What exactly is a Replicant? From an engineering perspective I mean. Are they stright up clones with genetic modification, or are they robots with some organic organs like their skin and brain? What do they look like on the inside? Do they look like [[https://www.stanwinstonschool.com/uploads/attachments/76/aliens-alien-queen-kills-bishop-9.jpg?1338877175 this?]] And if they are straight up genetically modified humans why does Pris do [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmPrGNMIguw this]] when she dies?

** Maybe the whole city is under a transparent dome and the municipal authorities ''make'' it rain every night in an attempt to wash the streets clean.

** The Theatrical Cut isn't ''bad'', persay; its just inferior to the Director's/Final cut in fans' minds. The Theatrical Cut has some significant ExecutiveMeddling, including the voiceovers being forced in and a recut ending, and it was actually savaged by critics on release. While it survived as a CultClassic, the release of the rough "working cut" (the pre ExecutiveMeddling version) was seen as fair superior, which led to the superior Director's Cut. The Final Cut is basically a GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion, with slightly improved special effects and editing mistakes fixed.
* Why is it a big deal to make Replicants who can breed? They are flesh and blood, they have genes. One assumes that their genes are based on humans. One would think it would take more work to make them not be capable of breeding.
