Like the said film, Blade Runner underlines the inability of humanity to relinquish their exclusive control over the definition of being human. These films have differences in semantics, mostly in the physical look and attitudes of the people and the outward aspects of their settings, but locations, archetypes, and actors express what it means to be truly human or inhuman, while syntax emphasizes the interconnection between capitalism, materialism, and dehumanization, where androids argue that the core of humanity is inside them, because of their capacity to change and to learn from within.
The semantics of these films are different because of the differences in the physical looks and overall climate of science. The introduction parts of the films showcase the difference in the tone of the film’s plot. Blade Runner opens the audience to a world of darkness, where Replicants threaten the existence of humanity. The city erupts in some places with fire, as if technology has developed into a dangerous beast, or rather, humans have become beasts themselves. Gloomy weather rains incessantly on the people, as if to reflect the muddiness of human living. In contrast, Bicentennial Man begins in the residence of an ordinary-looking family, where a father brings home a prized robot. Replicants are evil androids out to kill their maker, while Andrew Martin (Robin Williams) embodies a friendly robot, ready to serve and to love the family who bought him. In Blade Runner, Replicants are already rebelling against the humans, while Andrew represents the humorous android that simply wants to help humans and make them happy.

In Blade Runner, technology makes lives easier and the same goes for Bicentennial Man. Robots are created to improve the quality of life of human beings. Nevertheless, the settings of these films
