I thought it has been generally accepted that Deckard is in fact an Android. If that is the case, how does he age??

I have loved this movie since the original came out. Its not exactly accepted Deckard is a Replicant, I hsve never thought this but Ridley Scott I take it does.
Saw the trailer when I went to see Dunkirk, I want to see this.

I was under the impression that Phillip Dick confirmed it. Still, I am looking forward to seeing it.

The movie a and book are very different so PKD2can only speak to the book. As for the movie, which release? It really makes a differe5to the answer.

I saw and liked the original. Not interested in seeing this one though.

Fingers crossed its good. Replicants can age I believe. They are flesh and blood.

Love the original, but movie technology has changed so much that it would probably fall flat if released these days.

I want to walk into BR49 pretending it's a different, stand-alone movie with vague ties to a plot I used to know.

Deckard being a replicant crashes the whole premise. If that is retconed to the sequel, I won't be seeing it.

Han fired first, too.

Ridley Scott says that Deckard is a replicant.
Ford says he's human.
Dick said he was human.

Well if Dick himself says Deckard is human, that's good enough for me.

@Thosmosss..The original did fall flat. It had the misfortune of being released thesame week as It.

I really liked the original. I will have to see the new one.

I too really enjoyed the original … I'll be interested to see the new one. If nothing else, to see where the story line goes.

But I'll probably wait until it comes to Cable …

Seen, and really liked, and I'm a fairly hard core fan of the directors cut of the original. Though I will say its a pretty neutral watch from the point of view of whether you prefer the original or directors cuts.

The start wasn't auspicious as while I was sitting in the cinema waiting for the film to start the incidental music included the Love Theme from Bladerunner played on panpipes….

The visuals were pretty much spot on IMO, but I did think the cityscapes were actually too detailed, the original squeezed a lot of atmosphere from dark, light sprinkled, backdrops. Also the sky seemed curiously empty compared to the first. Back to the music the score was okay, borrowed heavily from the first, but lacked depth and diversity. The story was good enough – could maybe have done with a bit more noir sensibility? I picked up a couple of things that didn't make great sense. I though K was a good character, no argument about him being a replicant, at least as good as Deckard (heresy), but actually though Joi was probably the most interesting despite essentially being a bit of side storyline – initially I thought she was going to be significant plot thread. Not sure about Wallace – one my thoughts was 'Sheng-Ji Yang' from the Alpha Centauri. game.
