      A tiny taste of Ron Moore's BSG

      Posted

      Take all of the great visual effects from the entire 4 seasons of BSG, and throw it into a 94 minute movie. They're different and great effects from the people who brought us Battlestar Galactica though. The plot is thin, with no character development. There's not a still shot in the movie. It's all shaky cam, way beyond what was in BSG. The camera won't even stay still long enough to focus on what the characters look like. After an hour, I had to take a break to rest my eyes. It was shot in Vancouver, so there's a number of familiar SciFi acting faces from BSG, Stargate, Defying Gravity, etc. If you want a taste of Ron Moore's BSG, to satisfy your BSG withdrawal, this doesn't help much. Better to rewatch "Razor." And if you were hoping for Tricia Helfer, well ... If you're a BSG fan and watch this, you'll know. I would have enjoyed this if the camera work didn't make me nauseous ... and I'm a camera operator.

      A low budget, underwhelming mini feature that doesn't live up to its title. This was made after BSG had concluded its run on Syfy in an attempt to milk more money out of fans that was released in a series of 10 minute, straight to YouTube videos. Despite that, this feature is seamlessly put together, however it just wasn't that great. Not much Blood. Not much Chrome. Too much over acting. Too much from the Moore camp. I'm glad I didn't spend the $30 when it first came out. Worth $10, not $30. It even has a digital copy so you can be underwhelmed on the go, where ever you may be.

      Battlestar Gallactica the Prequel

      For the Battlestar Gallactica Fans. We see Adama as a young recruit joining the fight against the Cylons. In addition, we get to see the Human's battleship armada in their prime during the Cylon Wars. It's a shame, the movie never got the green light for a series. This series had potential to add undiscovered and rich lore to a great franchise. The sound and picture were crystal clear on blu ray. The only reason, I'm giving it a 4 star is because the movie felt too short.

      Wish this had gone to series, I enjoyed seeing Bill Adama's arrival on the Battlestar Galactica as a new pilot, fresh out of training. It was cool to see the Galactica in her prime. Even more impressive when you know that there were no traditional sets built, it was filmed against a green screen and CGI backgrounds were added later!

      I'm a big fan of the Battlestar Galactica storyline and it was a big surprise to see this movie on the store shelf. It has first-rate special effects that surpasses the television series and the acting was just as good. The plot was captivating and mysterious, and the ending was totally unexpected. I'm so glad I found this movie and I hope they produce more to fill-out the storyline between the first and second wars with the Cylons.

      A Blast in Uninterrupted Form

      I was able to watch this when it was online for free, but it is great to see it uncut. I can't compare it to whatever it looked like on cable. Story was pretty good, great continuity for a prequel series. Too bad it doesn't look to be coming as a series. (Maybe someday there will be another BSG series now that SyFy is back to actually doing some Scifi)

      William Adama (Commander/Admiral in the Syfy-produced "newer" series) and provides some background on the evolution of the Cylon menace. CGI effects can be a bit much at times; however, most scenes are shot/animated well. See if you can pick out Tricia Helfer's voice (Number Six from BSG) to help build that connection to BSG!

      This works really well as a DVD/BluRay. After watching it online in segments, it's nice to see it all in one piece. Plus I really enjoyed Luke Pasqualino as Adama. Glad to see him starring in The Musketeers on BBC America. Too bad they didn't make this into a series. If you loved BSG, you'll really enjoy this!
