Trivia: Around 2000-2001 Ridley Scott put together a third cut of the movie, which came very close to being released. This did not happen because Jerry Perenchio, who co-owns the rights to Blade Runner with Bud Yorkin refused to allow it.

Goofs:
Miscellaneous: A hand is visible on Batty's shoulder while he is in the phone booth. This is a reversed shot from later in the film when Batty meets Tyrell.
Continuity: The first shot of Batty's hand clenching up includes the nail, not inserted until later. The window in that scene is also visible, broken, before he breaks it.
Audio/visual unsynchronized: Rachael's claim that the owl is real.
Audio/visual unsynchronized: Deckard's conversation with the snake merchant.
Continuity: Deckard's instructions to the Esper machine aren't consistent with its behavior.
Audio/visual unsynchronized: Zhora's wounds appear before the sound of the bullets hitting her.
Revealing mistakes: Obvious stunt player when Zhora crashes through the glass walls.
Continuity: When Deckard and Bryant are reviewing the video from Leon's VK empathy test, the dialogue between Leon and Holden is not as fast as it was in the original scene.
Revealing mistakes: When Zhora crashes through the glass walls, the trigger for the blood packs can be seen in her right hand, as well as the line snaking through her clothes.
Revealing mistakes: Support cables for spinner.
Miscellaneous: The sheet music that Rachael reads does not match the song that she plays on the piano (not least because it is for guitar). She could, of course, be playing from memory and not referring to the music at all.
Crew or equipment visible: Shadow of a camera crew when Deckard is being chased by Batty through the Bradbury building.
Continuity: When the street vendor is examining the snake scale, the serial number she reads out loud doesn't match the number on her video screen.
Revealing mistakes: When Deckard takes out the VK machine to test Rachel, he mimes the action. The machine is already on the table.
Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Sebastian is talking to Batty about his chess game with Tyrell, the shot is focused on Batty, but Sebastian's chin and lower lip are visible, and you can see that it does not move in sync with the words you can hear him saying.
Continuity: Pris' hair is wet while outside the Bradbury building but it is dry the next moment inside the building.
Continuity: After Pris is killed by Deckard, Batty arrives outside Sebastian's apartment and his hair is dry. A few seconds later when he enters the apartment and finds Pris, his hair is soaking wet.
Continuity: The positions of the chess pieces in Sebastian's board does not match Tyrell's board positions.
Audio/visual unsynchronized: The chess game between Sebastian and Tyrell is based on "The Immortal Game" between Adolf Anderssen and Kieserizky in 1851. The board setup in the movie does not match the actual game. And also Sebastian's board doesn't match Tyrell's.
Continuity: The photo of Zhora that Deckard prints is of her reflection in a mirror, so the tattoo that is ostensibly on her left cheek is actually on her right cheek: when he rolls her head over after retiring her, however, it is on her left cheek.
Continuity: In the opening interview with Leon, Leon states: "Let me tell you about my mother..." Later, when Deckard reviews the video (in the tunnel) Leon is heard saying "I'll tell you about my mother..." (DVD, director's cut version).
Continuity: When the images of Zhora and Pris are first shown, their descriptions are the reverse of the characters roles in the movie.
Continuity: The cut on Deckard's cheek disappears and reappears between shots when the cops find him eating.
Continuity: When Deckard is in Zhora's dressing room there is no tattoo on her left cheek, as is seen in the photograph printed from the Esper. As she flees there is no tattoo. However when her body is rolled over after he shoots her it is clearly visible.
Continuity: When Pris meets Sebastian, the visible words on the marquee on the Million Dollar Theatre change from "Azores Garcia...Vidas" to "Los Mimilo Co..Mazacote Y Orque".
Continuity: When we see Zhora getting dressed after her shower, her boots have high heels. However when Deckard is chasing her the heels are flat. This is most obvious when she rolls over after he shoots her.
Audio/visual unsynchronized: The note that Deckard plays on the grand piano is not the note we hear.
Revealing mistakes: When Roy Batty, and Leon enter "Eye World" to interrogate Hannibal Chew (the eye-maker) the environment is supposed to be so cold that it will kill Hannibal without his protective suit, yet there is water dripping from the icicles on the ceiling.
Continuity: When Deckard is in his apartment examining the photograph of Rachael as a young girl with her mother, two photographs are shown. The first is a physical photograph that Deckard holds in his hands, the second is a supposed close-up of the same photo that comes to life for a brief instant. The position of the shadows in the shots show they were captured at slightly different times of day.
Continuity: In the final sequence on the rooftop between Deckard and Batty, Batty releases a bird he is holding while it is raining. When we cut to a shot of the bird flying away, the bird is not flying in rain, the sky is cloudless. Director Scott admitted that when he filmed the rooftop scene, he forgot to get a proper shot of the bird flying and had to film it much later. Due to the rain effects employed during the original shoot, the dove refused to fly (doves do not fly in wet weather) to give the director his desired shot. Consequently, the "dove-flying-away" sequence had to be shot at a later date.
Revealing mistakes: When Zhora is thrashing Deckard in her dressing room, she misses, and he pauses, then flies backwards as though struck hard.
Continuity: In Deckard's apartment, the color of Rachael's lipstick changes from red to pink/natural and back several times.
Continuity: When Deckard and Pris are fighting in Sebastian's apartment, in some shots we see Pris clearly wearing nude pantyhose that give her legs a matte look, while in other shots her legs are bare and shiny with sweat.
Factual errors: When the owl flies across the room, its wings can be heard flapping. However, owls are nocturnal hunters and the sound of flapping wings would scare away their prey. Their muffled wings and dull feathers allow them to fly silently.
Plot holes: Near the end of the final scene of the film, when Deckard is fighting Roy, Deckard goes into an abandoned apartment filled with pigeons. The movie clearly states that real animals are worth millions if not billions because they are near extinction. Thus there would not be an apartment worth billions of dollars worth of pigeons, someone would have taken them for profit.
Revealing mistakes: The opening scroll suggests that the Blade Runner unit was formed as a reaction to the Nexus 6 replicants, while in the movie itself it is clear that the Blade Runners like Deckard precede the development of the Nexus 6.
Continuity: The movie theater/theater across the Bradbury building when Pris and Sebastian meet initially shows different names when shown in the background of Pris, and a minute later in the background of Sebastian.
Continuity: When Pris paints her eyes at Sabastian's the color changes from scene to scene.
Revealing mistakes: During the fight scene between Deckard and Leon there's a point where Deckard gets thrown into the windshield of a car. However, when he is thrown and still in the air you can clearly see the windshield is already smashed with the imprint of his body, before he ever hits the actual glass.
Continuity: When we see Deckard waiting for his noodles, he is reading that day's newspaper. Later in Leon's apartment, the same newspaper, except it is old and soiled, is seen in one of the drawers. We know they are the same since both newspapers have the same headline about farming on the moon.
Quotes: Deckard: Gaff had been there, and let her live. Four years, he figured. He was wrong. Tyrell had told me Rachael was special. No termination date. I didn't know how long we had together... Who does?

Trivial: Entre 2000 y 2001 Ridley Scott realizó un tercer montaje de la película, el cual se parecía bastante al que sería publicado. Esto no fue así por Jerry Prenchio, el cual es copropietario de los derechos de Blade Runner, si no porque Bud Yorkin refusó permitirlo.

Fallos:
Miscelánea: Puede verse una mano en el hombro de Batty mientras está en la cabina de teléfono. Es una toma invertida que aparece más adealnte cuando Batty se encuentra con Tyrell.
Continuidad: La primera toma de la mano de Batty agarrotándose incluye el clavo, que no será insertado hasta más tarde. La ventana en dicha escena también es visible, rota, antes de que la rompa.
Audio/visual desincronizado: Rachael dice que el búho es real.
Audio/visual desincronizado: la conversación de Deckard con el mercader de serpientes.
Continuidad: las instrucciones que Deckard da a la máquina Esper no son consistentes con su estado.
Audio/visual desincronizado: la heridas de Zora aparecen antes de oir las balas que la alcanzan.
Errores reveladores: especialista cuando Zhora atraviesa las paredes de cristal.
Continuidad: cuando Deckard y Bryant están revisando el video del test de empatía VK de Leon, el diálogo entre Leon y Holden no es tan rápido como era en la escena original.
Errores reveladores: cuando Zhora impacta en las paredes de cristal, el disparador de los paquetes de sangre es visible en su mano derecha, así como el cable a través de su ropa.
Errores reveladores: los cables de soporte para los spinner.
miscelánea: la partitura que lee Rachael no pertenece a la música que está tocando en el piano (es para guitarra). Ella podría, por supuesto, estar tocando de memoria y no referirse a ella para nada.
Equipo visible: sombra de la cámara cuando Deckard está siendo cazado por Batty a través del edificio Bradbury.
Continuidad: cuando el vendedor callejero examina la escama de serpiente, el número de serie que lee en alto no corresponde al número de su pantalla de vídeo.
Errores reveladores: cuando Deckard saca la máquina VK para realizar el test a Rachael, mimifica la acción. La máquina ya está en la mesa.
Audio/visual desincronizado: cuando Sebastian está hablando con Batty sobre su partida de ajedrez con Tyrell, la toma está enfocada en Batty, pero la mejilla y labio inferior de Sebastian son visibles, y se puede ver que no los mueve en sincronía con las palabras está pronunciando.
Continuidad: el cabello de Pris está mojado en el exterior del edificio Bradbury pero está seco en la siguiente escena dentro del edificio.
Continuidad: después de que Deckard mate a Pris, Batty llega al exterior del edificio Bradbury y su cabello está seco. Unos segundos más tarde, cuando entra en el apartamento y encuentra a Pris, su cabello está empapado.
