Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Sean Axmaker ... neither sequel nor prequel to show but an imaginative bookend, a retelling of the saga in digest form from the Cylon perspective.
7M Pictures - 8/10 by Kevin Carr I found the movie to be a piece of brilliant writing because it managed to retrofit a neat little story arc into an existing series.
User Review - 10/10 by Trevor M I have never watched the series but watched Razor before this, both are just brilliant, very very enjoyable. The Plan definitely makes me want to watch the series.
User Review - 10/10 by Scott N Battlestar Galactica: The Plan isunusual project ! de plan is dat de cylons had no plan. They made themselves human thus becoming human. Both de bst n de worst of humanity
User Review - 8/10 by September O It's not like its bad, just extremely disappointing, especially as a series finale to the greatest television show on the planet (The Plan featured less than half the main cast and really didn't feel all that big and profound like the series had)...Sigh....
User Review - 8/10 by D G Everything is burning . . . 12 battles, 3 stars. I really enjoyed this "film" the scenes where they destroy the 12 colonies is fantastic, great score, everything is there. It does slow up a bit after a while, but lots of the questions you may of had are answered. The only problem I have is wanting to buy the box set, this will not be included, no doubt there will be a part 2. As for the film they are planning to make don't get me started or the TV series Caprica . . oh my.
User Review - 6/10 by Walter M For those unfamiliar with the new and mostly improved "Battlestar Galactica," the feature "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan," written by Jane Espenson and directed by Edward James Olmos, is not a good place to start as its sole purpose is to fill continuity holes in the first two seasons while introducing a couple of minor characters and giving more time for individual Cylon models.(Seen in retrospect, this would be as good as it would get for these characters which is strange in the wake of the genocide.) Oddly enough, there are questions left unanswered. For example, who did leave that note for Adama(Edward James Olmos) and what is the deal with Starbuck's(Katee Sackhoff) so-called destiny? So, this is not exactly essential for avid fans, either. However, Dean Stockwell does make it worth watching all by himself and Tricia Helfer reminds us all how good while playing multiple characters. "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan" is told not from the humans' point of view, but from that of Brother Cavil(Dean Stockwell), splitting his time between the human resistance on Caprica led by Sam Anders(Michael Trucco) and the Cylon terrorist cell on board Galactica. The central point of focus is the Cylon failure to completely wipe out humanity. While there are a couple of times when they come off as the artificial beings who cannot shoot straight, it actually follows from Cavil's sadism and the fact that it is much harder for a rational being to hate somebody after getting to know them. Welcome to the human race.
User Review - 6/10 by Scott F A disappointing addition to the BSG canon. It would have played better in the series proper, especially if they used it to set up the final episodes. But now, nearly a year later, it feels more like they cobbled together some deleted scenes and are presenting them as a movie. Its biggest flaw, however, is that it doesn't add anything to the story. It answers questions only the die-hardest of fans might have -- but they're small, unimportant questions.
User Review - 6/10 by Mikaela C Really fun to see if you have seen the whole series... It is interesting to see all the events from the cylons point of view
User Review - 4/10 by Me M Olmos' Plan -- there isn't really one. Apparently missing the sunny weather in Vancouver, Olmos and half the cast of BSG re-convened for yet another chapter in the BSG series. This time, supposedly, from the Cylons POV. But is it really? 70% of this 2-hour special is just clips from the series re-edited and presented within the frame of the Cylons POV because, apparently, we didn't get enough of that the first time. I hope you like Dean Stockwell because he's in this A LOT. His character(s) "Model 1" is throughout the muddled story, scorning humans all the way even when fearing his (their?) own mortality. What could be more human than dying? The enigmatic Leoben is presented again, probably thanks to unused shots from the series, but his character isn't really explained any more thoroughly. Was he really in love with Starbuck? Did she ever love him back? Etc. And it's infuriating to true fans because why make yet another episode if you're not going to bother to answer any of the 'big' questions about the characters? And hadn't we already established that the Cylons were just like humans anyway?
User Review - 4/10 by Tobias W BSG movie about the events in the beginning from an other perspective. Mainly a "previously in BSG" feel makes this a somewhat dull experience (especially if you remember the events). Has some interesting revelations but overall not anything to really get excited about. One curious addition is (almost) nudity in several scenes. Only for the fans.
User Review - 2/10 by tay b Edward James Olmos sells out. I must say I was so disappointed by this movie. I waited months and months to see this. In fact I looked forward to it. The movie plays A special on the sci-fi channel or something like that. The only exciting moment is when the Brunette version of number six is rolling around in a small bed in her undies. the rest is a far-fetched story juxtaposed opposite the lineage of the whole series. The real gem was "razor". It's obvious that Ronald D. Moore had other things to worry about when this script went down. The story zigzags all over the place with flashbacks which are supposed to be groundbreaking but really don't change very much about what we know or how we feel about the whole series. The thing that bothers me the most is Edward James Olmos giving the same interview all over the Internet about how this is the best Battlestar Galactica ever and that more movies will be like this. Gosh I hope not... I feel like somebody dipped my children in garbage. to come up with an allegory... Battle Star Galactica compared to the plan is like comparing Star Wars to that Battle for Endor Ewoks movie. I'll pretty much watch anything about Battlestar Galactica but this was really an insult and an embarrassment to everyone involved. I could not have been more surprised. the worst episode of Battle Star Galactica is a hundred times better than this movie. "Razor" is actually good enough to recruit people to watch the entire series in fact, I did that with that DVD and made someone into a major fan. I am aware that the screenwriter was a battle Star Galactica novice but I'm sure they made her watch enough episodes to understand what kind of quality the storylines usually had. And the gratuitous use of boobs and buttocks... who cares? it's not like some of the main characters were naked... now that might have been worth it. If number six it had a hot and heavy love scene with Starbuck or something like that or maybe Apollo..maybe. but still what was lacking here is story, story, story. They chose the most insignificant characters and ran them all over the map. Im sorry but rent the original series or RAZOR and/or catch the TRICIA HELFER issue of playboy and you'll be much more satified ..oh and Grace Park...take your clothes off ...we are sleeping from your performance..] So say we all.
