Rutger Hauer and Blade Runner - "30 years ago I saw the future"

  • Published on Oct 24, 2012
  • Rutger Hauer arrives early at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Milan. There, a restricted number of journalists and students met the deep and glacial gaze of the legendary replicant Roy Batty, the character who went down in the history of cinema with "that" sentence that we have all said, at least once in our lifetime: «...I've seen things you people wouldn't believe...». The 30th anniversary of "Blade Runner", milestone of science fiction cinema and unquestioned masterpiece by Ridley Scott, is one of the reasons why Hauer was in Milan. In our report, the Dutch actor retraces the crucial moments of that extraordinary cinematographic experience.

    I wasn’t born when blade runner came out but I remember seeing it with my father on t.v when I was young and I remember the tears in the rain part and I fell in love with the movie.. I’m so glad I shared that experience with my father. The movie is a beautiful thing I watched when growing up and it made me who I am today and what I enjoy. I’m only 23 and I’m glad I seen this movie. It means a lot too me

    I will be honest. Rutger Hauer almost reminds me of Richard Harris in his older age.

    The focus shouldn't be on "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe" but on "...all these moments will be lost in time".

    In fact, Rutger Hauer was the protagonist of Blade Runner!!
    Rutger Rauer, do you dream of electric sheep?

    I loved Blade Runner, the first time I saw it. When I finally got to see it's cult following, a few years later, I can relate.

    That was really interesting, especially when talking about "seeing into the future"... He and the rest of cast were both great and identical.
    He's been to my country, Hungary filming in the first season of The Last Kingdom, in which I was an extra for one day in that season. Sadly I didn't get to see him as I was in a compeletely different scene. Still, I'm glad he got to work here :)

      ''I sniff and scratch at it. It looks great but I struggle to see why that film was necessary. I just think if something is so beautiful, you should just leave it alone and make another film. Don't lean with one elbow on the success that was earned over 30 years in the underground. In many ways, Blade Runner wasn't about the replicants, it was about what does it mean to be human? It's like E.T. But I'm not certain what the question was in the second Blade Runner. It's not a character-driven movie and there's no humor, there's no love, there's no soul. You can see the homage to the original. But that's not enough to me. I knew that wasn't going to work. But I think it's not important what I think.''

    I have been a fan of Rutger's since I first saw him on screen. I believe he is one of the most underrated actors of all time. I find him mesmerizing. It is not Harrison Ford who leads the story which is Blade Runner, but Rutger's character.

    I know Rutger Hauer is Dutch but i'm impressed with his English fluency. Anyway his character Roy Batty was understadardable but Luv on the other hand was a vicious and violent sociopath.

    "Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? that's what its like to be a slave". Science fiction was better in the 20th century. Hollywood is now a slave to pure money and can only live on the reflected glory from past series such as Deep Space 9, Star Trek Voyager, and TNG. They are afraid to make new science fiction in case it does not make money, and anyone with any talent or creativity is frozen out. The new Bladerunner movie however is great.

    Rutger Hauer uttered *the best line in movie history* :
    "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 Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

  • Brad Thurkle

    I’m a massive fan of Rutger. Blind fury was a great movie he did aswell playing a blind man with great sword skills saving the day. He’s so so talented and very unique and when he said I played half that character in blade runner I believe it,and I’m glad he did because it was such intriguing character that you wanting more of wanting to what was next. Awesome and Harrison Ford was just brilliant. These 2 great actors just completed each other for an iconic movie I can watch over and over again still thinking this movie is fresh. Way before it’s time.

    I saw Blade Runner in the theater when it first came out. I was seven years old. Throughout the entire film I kept repeating the same thing over and over, to myself - "I don't even know what is going on; but, I know it's cool."
    I was mesmerized and I loved it!

    BladeRunner is really one of cinema's greatest cult movies, and Mr Hauer is the best actor this movie had. They were and are all great, but Hauer stands out for me much more. He's an unusual person, and I mean this in a good way. Unconventional. Interesting. Never boring. The Hitcher is my favorite 80s thriller also. As for Mr Hauer, he's still got it, still got that sense of mischief and energy for acting. I wish all actors could be this good. This man's face is like a work of art . So expressionfull and real, in a world of plastic visages. There will never be another Rutger Hauer and nor will there ever be another character quite like Roy.
