Defective, dumb, and self-destructive.
This metaphor is getting a little heavy-handed.

I guess they made Roy kill a goon to be more sympathetic to the average audience member then.

The main thing that irritates me about all the extended/director/etc. versions of Blade Runner is how they add scenes that push Deckard must be a replicant. I don't mind the idea per se, but I think it works much better as a mystery unsolved (or more accurately solved how the viewer prefers) rather than straight up making it obvious he's a replicant. Helps with thinning the line between humans and replicants that way; I was pleased 2049's only answer when they touched on it was "Deckard's a person, the rest is irrelevant" which really is the important take home message to me.

The first version I ever saw of the movie, back as a young'un, was the 'director's cut' that had no voiceovers or unicorn or whatever.

So I, too, find all the 'he's totally a replicant!' stuff really annoying. gently caress off, Ridley. The whole point of the movie is that he, a human, is more devoid of compassion and humanity throughout the film than Roy is in his final moments, you dumb old gently caress.
