Corrected entry: At the end of the film, Batty dies of "old age" (the replicants have a four year life span). But if you check the profiles shown to Deckard at the beginning, Batty is a 2017 (or was it 2016?) model. If this takes place in 2019, then why is Batty dying now?

Correction: This is answered by what Tyrell says to Batty when they meet. "A candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long, and you have burned very brightly..." Batty's job as a commando may well cause him to burn out faster. In any case, if he was born early in 2016 and this is late 2019, it is close to 4 years

Corrected entry: When Deckard is thrown into the windscreen of the parked vehicle by the replicant, in slow motion the windscreen is already smashed and dented.

Correction: According to writers, it's a derelict vehicle, and it's windscreen was already smashed.

Other mistake: When Deckard visits the Tyrell Corporation, he prepares to test Rachel with the "VK" machine. He is shown putting his briefcase of the table and lifting the "VK" machine out and onto the table. If you look closely, the "VK" machine is already on the table and Harrison Ford is miming the lifting - there is nothing in his hands! (00:19:45)

Batty: I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die.

Trivia: At the end, Batty gives his 'a time to die' speech on the roof. Rutger Hauer made up the speech himself, between an hour and half an hour before filming the scene. (01:46:15)
