Before the shared cinematic universe model took over with Marvel Comics and DC, the screenwriter for Blade Runner, David Webb Peeples, co-wrote this film starring Kurt Russell in the late 90s set in the same universe as Blade Runner: http://lwlies.com/articles/solider-kurt-russell-original-blade-runner-sequel/

But in Soldier the question is arguably even more relevant: what takes away our humanity, and how can we hold on to it? Only Kurt Russell’s eyes can tell us that.

Closer to home -- What took away Elias' humanity and how can Eli hold on to it?

I've seen this movie more than once. When I run across it, I tend to watch it again. If you can find it, I strongly recommend it!
