Yul Brynner plays our first killer-robot for today and is definitely one of the most vicious ones.
Our second choice simply had to be Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) from the 1982 sci-fi classic.
Blade Runner portrays a dystopian Los Angeles in which genetically engineered replicants are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation.
Since the use of replicants has been banned on Earth, they are now exclusively being utilized for dangerous or menial work on off-world colonies.
