Blade Runner Explains The Value Of Life With A Single Dialogue

Blade runner is one of the most famous movies and this is the reason that it has been launched in several cuts. In some movies, the scenes were deleted or new dialogues were added. However, the cut from 1982 grabbed the attention of most of the viewers because of the amazing dialogue that has been said by the famous actor Roy Batty.
It is the story of Deckard who has been playing the role of the replicant hunter. He has planned to quit his job but he is forced by the police to hunt the last four replicants that have come on the earth, in his quest to find and kill the replicants he ends up dying himself but one of the replicants saves him and ends the move with the famous dialogue.

Origin of the quote

Roy Batty at the end of the film says the quote and it is famous as the Tears in rain monologue.
  • It is the scene in which Deckard is falling and Roy saves him.
  • It is one of the biggest twists in the movie that why Roy saved the character that has been playing the role of the villain and he is against everyone.
  • However, when Roy says his famous speech everyone understands what the movie was all about.

Value of life in Tears in rain monologue

The blade Runner has the best end with the following words:
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time…like tears in rain… Time to die.”
If we try to understand the movie we will get the idea that the actor is making us understand the value of life. He might have let Deckard die because he was the worst enemy, however, knowing that importance and beauty of life he saves him.
From his words, he has given the same idea that we should live a happy life and never try to challenge those who have seen more of the earth and life than us because, in the end, they will help us. The Tears in rain monologue has inspired many and it is the quote that brought tears to many eyes. The moment you will watch the movie it would be hard for you to ignore this famous dialogue.
