Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a former "Blade Runner" called out of retirement to hunt and kill four "Replicants" led by Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer).
These genetically altered humans with superior strength and intellects have returned to earth on a killing spree, determined to meet their maker, Dr. Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel). Deckard's investigation leads across the glittering heights and disintegrating depths of Ridley Scott's fantastically imagined metropolis; one filled with pyramids, enormous neon billboards and spinner cars Amid unimaginable overcrowding and a constant deluge of acid rain.
Before his search is over, Deckard will find himself falling in love with Rachael (Sean Young), Tyrell's beautiful, mysterious assistant. He will also face off against Batty in brutal hand–to–hand combat. But Deckard's most troubling find will be the suspicion that he just might be a replicant himself.
