The stylishly-filmed effort with neon tones that was peppered with 80s tunes was the director's solo directorial debut. The slightly-cartoonish movie was noted for multiple over-the-top scenes of martial arts hand-to-hand fighting and intense action sequences especially in one apartment stairwell fight , car chases, and the requisite number of double-agents and double-crosses.
Many weapons or lethal tools came into play at various times: The badass female-centered film, told mostly in flashback, was set during the last year of the 80s decade, during the waning years of the Cold War and at the time of the collapse of the Berlin Wall. It starred Charlize Theron the film's producer! Before the debriefing, vodka-swigging Broughton emerged from her blue-tinged icy bathtub, exhibiting her many combat wounds before a mirror black eye, sore muscles, facial bruises.
The list found on microfilm in a wristwatch , considered an "atomic bomb of information," had been stolen from another assassinated MI6 operative named James Gasciogne Sam Hargrave. The list was very crucial, because the identity of one of the double-agent KGB-Stasi villains named Spyglass Eddie Marsan was on the list.
Spyglass had also memorized the entire contents of the secret agents list. During the mission with her partner Percival to retrieve the list and its contents, she eventually realized that he was a rogue libertine allied with Bremovych, and that he had strangled her French co-hort Delphine to death.
Vengefully, she shot him in the torso as he admitted: After all the sleepless nights, lying to friends, lovers, myself? Playing this crooked game in this crooked town filled with backstabbers and four-faced liars? I'll tell you what I've learned. One thing and one thing only. I f--king love Berlin! And you feature heavily. Turns out you've been a very naughty girl It's en route to MI6, where it belongs People like us don't know the difference We choose to ignore it.
Isn't that right, Comrade Satchel It's a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver. To her superiors, Lorraine identified Percival as Satchel. In the film's ending twist, however, Lorraine was revealed to be a CIA 'triple-agent' working with Kurzfeld at the CIA - she was Satchel - and the film concluded with her point-blank bloody killing of Bremovych and his agents in a Paris hotel suite.
During her time in Berlin, Lorraine engaged in a very graphic relationship with artistic lesbian French spy-agent Delphine Lasalle Sofia Boutella. After meeting in a raucous nightclub bar where music played and a sign read: I know who you are. Whatever is in that list has people willing to kill for it. This is my first assignment with the French intelligence. I've only been here a year. I got into this because it was exciting. But it's never been like this in Berlin.
Or a rock star. The story again involved the manufacture of replicants or bioengineered humans "designed by the Tyrell Corporation for use off-world" , now by a new corporation, that were employed as slaves.
Older, runaway rogue replicants often needed to be hunted down and eliminated by 'blade-runners' police officers. The five Oscar nominations it received were mostly technical honors: These honors were well-deserved and were demonstrated throughout.
In a striking birthing sequence within the Wallace Corporation headquarters Wallace Corp. Let us see her, then. After she was dumped in a naked state, Wallace examined, caressed and cradled her head and told her: Before we even know what we are, we fear to lose it.
Now, let's have a look at you. Slightly later, as the female newborn stood naked before him, he continued by calling his replicant product an 'angel.
She was an example of the limitless future for humanity and for his corporation in his view - however, with his godlike power to create life by the millions and trillions , he was dismayed and also furious that he had not perfected how to create replicants with procreative or reproductive capabilities. Because she was 'barren' or infertile, he killed her: Yes, there were bad angels once.
I make good angels, now. That is how I took us to nine new worlds. A child can count to nine on fingers. We should own the stars! Every leap of civilization was built off the back of a disposable work force. We lost our stomach for slaves, unless engineered.
But I can only make so many. That barren pasture, empty and salted. He touched her abdomen and womb area The dead space between the stars. And this, the seed that we must change forever. He viciously gutted and slashed her with a knife, and blood trickled down her legs I cannot breed them, so help me, I have tried. We need more replicants than can ever be assembled.
Millions, so we can be trillions more. We could storm Eden and retake her. He kissed her, then turned away, as she crumpled and collapsed dead to the floor Tyrell's final trick, procreation.
But there is a child. He delivered instructions to his henchman Luv Sylvia Hoeks to bring Deckard's Harrison Ford miracle child to him - birthed by Rachael Sean Young , to attain the power of reproduction Bring it to me The best angel of all.
K had purchased the commercially-manufactured Joi - an adaptive hologram, as a virtual girlfriend-companion to improve his lonely and difficult life. She was creating or orchestrating an elaborate fantasy for him to enjoy, by hiring Mariette to assist her as a surrogate or stand-in physical body to simulate the consummation of their relationship physically: It's OK, she's real.
I wanna be real for you. You are real for me. You have a special lady, here. OK, let's do it. Joi walked over to Mariette and projected her digital self onto her. The features of both were merged together via CGI, but there were subtle breaks, unsynchronized flickerings in their melded union when they made movements, as the love-making scene commenced - it was a three-way transaction.
Her favors to fulfill his wishes were advertised with blinking neon signs that read: What a day, hmm? I can fix that. You look like a good Joe.
