MPAA Rated R for violence, some sexuality, nudity and language

Sex & Nudity

  • HBO reports this as "brief nudity" and all nudity is indeed extremely brief.
  • Nude scene with hologram full breasts and buttocks visible. Holograms look like real, moving, images of people are visually more like the people themselves than a still photo image.
  • An intimate scene shows a woman's bare breast as she gets out of bed
  • Some male and female frontal nudity fully visible. Male genitals visible, there are no female genitals shown in this scene or anywhere else in the movie.
  • Some replicants are seen naked in cases and one that falls out of a bag is fully nude but only breasts are shown.
  • Several prostitutes are seen having sex. Moaning can be heard. It can be seen in the background for the entire scene (5-10 minutes).
  • Two women, one of them a prostitute, get naked, no nudity but it is implied they have sex with a man. The scene itself is rather long (5 minutes or more).
  • A female replicant is shown standing nude. Scene lasts 39 seconds, with the replicant standing for about 15 seconds. Breasts and buttocks only.
  • As a man walks by, he sees a giant, pink skinned, blue haired and black eyed nude hologram girl. Breasts and buttocks are seen.
  • Giant female statues are shown with visible buttocks and breasts in a scene. The camera show starts from the top and moves all the way down across two female statues with side breasts and nipples.
  • This movie has lots of female objectification throughout.
  • That new model, by the way, is completely nude when we see her-and we see plenty of her, including her breasts and backside.
  • Wallace also places his hand where the replicant's womb would be.
  • We see another woman nude as well: a pink-haired but very real gigantic hologram that tries to seduce passers-by to buy "her". ("Everything you want to see," reads the advertising copy. "Everything you want to hear.")
  • Her breasts and backside are again visible.
  • K walks by some mostly formed replicants floating in vats of liquid, all of whom are obviously naked.
  • We see male genitals on some.
  • Statues of gigantic, naked women are scattered about a surreal cityscape.
  • Women and replicants constantly hit on K.
  • And a trio of apparent prostitutes walk over to a table K sits at and flirt with him.
  • Two leave once they discover he's a blade runner, but one stays, continuing to chat him up.
  • But he turns her down, too. K's boss, Lt. Joshi, also asks suggestively what might happen once she finishes her drink in K's apartment.
  • K demurs, telling her about all the work he should catch up on.
  • K does eventually have a sexual encounter.
  • We see the object of his desire remove her clothes (he gets an eyeful, but we don't), and the two embrace
  • The camera leaves shortly thereafter, but returns to glimpse an awkward morning after.
  • Wallace's replicant servant, Luv, says that being asked personal questions makes her feel "desire."
  • We see some women dressed in showgirl outfits and other revealing garb.

Violence & Gore

  • While the violence is infrequent, it was pretty graphic and disturbing at times. This includes drowning, stabbing, gunfight, blown up and hand-to-hand combat.
  • A man beat another man and then shoot him. The shooting only shown a split second before the camera cuts into the shooter.
  • A woman hits a man on the back of his neck with great power. The result is quite gruesome, as the man's jaw is dislocated and he bleeds out of nearly every orifice.
  • Some group of people is attacked by missiles launched from a drone. The impact is shown with many people launched into the air from the explosion (one of these men is seen having a limb fly off with some blood). Later, the aftermath is shown with many bloody dead bodies, however the shoot is taken from a long distance.
  • A man slashes a woman's stomach open. The wound is not explicitly shown, but the blood is seen going down her thighs. When the screen pans out, the wound is generally covered by the man standing in front of her, but the wound is seen very briefly as she falls down.
  • A woman attacks another woman by slashing her stomach (quick cut) and then stab her on the same spot (shot from distance)
  • A woman executes another woman by shooting her in the head (on-screen). However the shooting is on the background and blurred. We still can see the blood spurt, though.
  • A man attacks a downed vehicle and shoots the driver in the head. Blood is seen spurting on the side, but the camera quickly jumps back to the shooter.
  • A woman has a fight with a man and she stabs the man, with blood spurts when she pulls the knife out. However the scene is dark, so the blood looks black.
  • A man strangles a woman underwater and lets her drown until she's dead.
  • A woman grabs another woman's hand who is holding a glass. The glass breaks in her hand and her hand is forced closed onto the shards, resulting in lots of blood.
  • While "retiring" replicants isn't considered murder in this dystopian future, it sure looks like it.
  • A naked woman is slashed through the stomach with a knife, bleeding out as two people look on.
  • Another woman, this one clothed, is similarly killed.
  • A third is shot almost point-blank in the head, accompanied by a spray of blood and gore.
  • K shoots several people in the head and snaps someone's back.
  • Perhaps a dozen others are killed via some sort of war drone.
  • A massive melee leads to someone drowning.
  • Someone else gets smashed in the back of the head, and the victim dies with blood spurting out of his mouth and floating in his eyeballs.
  • Speaking of eyeballs, K removes one from a deceased replicant (eyeballs contain replicant serial numbers) and takes it back to the office to be logged.
  • We don't see the eye's removal, but we do see it in a bloody bag.
  • K also gets into some serious fights that lead to his face being caked with blood.
  • He drools blood out of his mouth on occasion, too
  • K punches someone in the face, too, leading to a bloody and perhaps broken nose.
  • A child is beaten by a bunch of bullies.
  • Flying cars crash.
  • Replicants smash through walls.
  • Explosions explode.
  • People fly back.
  • We hear someone threaten to torture someone else.
  • There's talk of dissecting replicants.


  • There are 6 spoken uses of the word "fuck", and two written. Milder bad language, such as 'prick' and 'shit', is also used.
  • Seven f-words, three s-words and a smattering of other profanities, including "b--tard," "h---" and "pr--k."
  • God's name is paired with "d--n," loudly, once.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some alcohol drinking and smoking.
  • K smokes, and we see him light up often.
  • He serves himself and Joi drinks of some kind.
  • Lt. Joshi downs an alcoholic beverage at K's house as well.
  • An old-fashioned bar features hundreds of old liquor bottles stacked in rather artistic fashions.
  • Deckard offers K a glass of whiskey. "Got millions of bottles of whiskey," he says.
  • He also pours some on the floor for his dog to lap up.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The main villain is a heartless killing machine who goes around killing people who have knowledge of the replica program. She is expressionless but sometimes she tears up while killing people. She is similar to the T-1000 from Terminator 2.
  • There is a dog that is injured and presumably left behind. Sad scene.
  • Niander Wallace killing an infertile female replicant can be unsettling and creepy to some viewers.
  • I wouldn't recommend younger children to see this movie because there is a lot of sexual content and graphic infrequent violence. I would recommend it to 15+ and 18+
