Great actor. I liked every role he played. He was an awesome "bad guy." May he rest in peace.

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.
I saw the movie with a bunch of vet friends, and when he said that line, we all kind of looked at each other and realized how difficult it is to try and describe crazy stuff that some people wouldn't believe.
RIP Great Lines!

I think that special scene, coming in the early years of the Shuttle Program, sort of woke us that the future wasn't going to be all that we expected compared the the Apollo and Star Trek years where science and technology was supposedly going to solve common frailties of our species. We glimpsed that our old dark habits were going to be carried with us into the future.

We are still the same old brutish lethal rats that endure anything thrown at us.

If you scan his filmography and note that while a busy actor he really didn't have a lot of weighty roles in film history.

But he nailed that one scene so perfectly that it stuck in the mind of generations and jammed a mirror in our faces about what man is really all about.

Let's not forget "Blind Fury"



FYI... "Wife of 50 Years"... that speaks volumes to his character.

I always liked him. BR is one of my favorites.

Odd coincidence. His character Roy Batty in BR died in 2019, same year obviously that Hauer has now left us. Really bizarre coincidence.

I recently read how Rutger Hauer pretty much re-wrote the whole "Tears in Rain" monologue the night before they filmed the scene. Apparently, the script was much more wordy but he distilled it down to what was actually used in the film.

I remember seeing Blade Runner in the theater when it was released, I was 17 at the time. Great movie, and the Vangelis soundtrack was perfect for the time.

Great movie, soundtrack and Rutger Hauer stole the limelight.

"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long"

Pretty much sums it up..

That scene absolutely needed Harrison Ford's horror and realization.

In fact that was Ford's true role to the movie, to be there as mostly a witness to the insanity going on around him.
