Blade Runner isn't just one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time, it's one of the greatest films period. Although Harrison Ford's Deckard, a private eye hired to track down a group of criminal replicants (that's Blade Runner lingo for robots btw) is ostensibly the film's protagonist, it's Rutger Hauer's Batty that really captures the essence of the film. Is he truly a villain or just quasi-human looking to protect those he loves and hold on to life as long as he can??? See it and decide for yourself!
