I found it interesting at the end, where Adama spoke of how he might have done the same things that Cain did if he hadn't had the president and civilian government keeping in line. I liked that scene, because I don't think Adama could have done the things that Cain did- he would never have shot his XO, which was for Cain where things began to spiral. But he was trying to put her actions into perspective for himself, maintaining a little dignity for what was a disastrous command, but was still a command that survived. I find it interesting that he had to make that point to himself, as he doesn't like the thought of discrediting the only other Battlestar that survived. It makes me wonder how much information the fleet has on the Pegasus and what happened aboard, and whether they should or need to know- most of those officers involved are dead, the ship is destroyed, so should this one be let to rest, or held up as an example. Normally my reaction would be that YES the civilians should know! Learn from history and all that, but.....as always in BSG, it's not so clear cut.
"Never trust a smiling robot."
I get the distinct feeling that to get the the actual story one will have to buy the uncut DVD as when Gallactica found Peagaus there were quite a few horror stories being told and I can only imagine that they had to cut out quite a bit of it for both content and time constraints.
Oh, AND WHAT THE #$%^ IS THIS?! MARCH?!?! Honestly, if I had to choose between Razor and the new BSG season starting up now id choose the new season.
Yes great but what the hell, now we know the end of the BSG series... I still think that a earth arrival on a let's say 2010 earth would have been fantastic or during the roman empire (no it's not sci-fi meets Rome, even though seeing finally caprica six naked could be a great epilogue... just kidding)...
PS the end of bsg, the fall into a warmhole where they think they've found earth at the exit but instead they are back on Caprica thousands of years before and it will happen again and again and again (the time continuum startrek like)...
Seriously guys just imagine if suddently we would see a battleship in the sky...
I guess I'm in the minority here but I didn't think Razor was that great.
I think the story of Pegusus was strong enough without all the Lee in charge stuff mixed in. I would have rather had more time with Pegusus than trying to shoehorn Kendra into those events.
The old school cylons could have been Pegasus' big adventure, with no need for the Adamas to be involved. Kendra was a waste of time, I guessed her fate right off the bat, considering we've seen nothing of her in S3.
Cain was fascinating, I would have loved more on her. Her relationship with Gina for instance could have been played out better.
The Guardians were pretty cool, the old man hybrid was cool to see, but not enough screen time..
Some of the SFX shots were absolutely terrible, some even worse than that. Maybe there were some budget issues or something.
Overall there was very little new, very little added to the story. It was so messy, jumping around all over the place, so that it ended up with no real direction or focus, the ending was too rushed and too predictable.
Greatly looking forward to new Galactica, I just wish it was here now rather that Razor.

I usually think the sfx in Galactica are great, especially for a tv budget, but I think this time there were some very poor pieces of CGI.

Go rent the original series and take a look at the cylon-cockpit interior shots. You'll be surprised at how close the Razor version matches. Given the huge difference in technology to make those shots, it's actually very impressive to me that they matched it so well.
The shot with the cyclon on the deck might have been "real". I'd have to look at it again to be sure (preferrably in HD), but I think that was physically built. If it was, then I'd say it's very bad CG 'cause it ain't CG
OTOH, I can't speak for the explosions. I've noticed that Zoic tends to do non-damped explosions (explosions in atmospheres tend to "slow down", and a lot of Zoic's BSG explosions don't, as if they're modelling a lack of atmosphere, which makes them look "off" to us atmosphere-dwellers). Nothing I saw really seemed out of place, but then again, I wasn't looking for CG flaws.
Cylon on the deck was cg, and not to say it was bad but rather it was farrrrr too noticeable between the forground shot with the actors, they didn't spend enough time blending the shots, I think what it came down to was they were lit differently and it really marked it big.
Actor:"A zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes, walking around blindly with dead eyes. Following orders." Not knowing what they do, not caring."Bob Hope :" You mean like Democrats?"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWpU8...elated&search=Bob Hope in the movie ghostbreakers.
"And you ask why?"
I thought it was okay, nothing great. I'm not even sure if I'd rewatch it. The pacing was far slower than I expected and I was hoping for more about Cain than what we got. The Kendra storyline was reminiscent of Kat's troubles and sacrifice, so nothing really new there.
The high point for me was the very end when the bath dude gave his prophecy about Starbuck. That whetted my appetite for s4.
The most boring film I have seen in a long time, given its setting.
In fact I could cut about thirty minutes of utter crap out of the movie, forget extended version about a shorten version.
The battle scenes was far far far to short, to choppy, in cohernent.
but some of the cgi shots were utterly terrible.
The series cylon just looked terrible, I mean they should of just stuck with men in suits, would off looked better and saved money longer battle scenes.
The entire story was disjointed beyond all believe especially for a one of single film, which I would of though would design to attract more view, this will just confuse people and turn them away from the franchise.
No single single focus what so ever.
No reason why cain turn evil, she just went down that path for no reason, one defining reason what so ever, nothing which bought to me I would of done that if I was in her shoes, in fact seem her entire personality just, probably moore could not come with a reason decide to ignore it.
Especially as she seem extremely tolerate when we first saw her, joking and jolly, and very lenient on her officers, then she all suddenly decides killing people is how you should command the episode.
Long boring dialog which nothing of interest, then their long linger shots, again revealing nothing of interest.
In fact apart from the destruction of the shipyard, it was far far to short.
Also this advance virus, was so easy to spot that a lonely lieutenant could spot it seem silly to me.
The only enjoyable bit was the space battles, far to few, and the big reveal, starbuck was lead humans to their destruction, was good for them to finally have that on screen.
I mean people only been saying she a Cylon since season 1.
Totally disappointed given the hype. 5/10
SG movies will show how it meant to be done.

My Gods! BG and BG: Razor take an awful beating by critics and viewers. My question is, if it's so mediocre, what other show is better? As far as I'm concerned, Razor excelled in most departments: great effects, battles, good acting/casting, well-written script. Granted, there will always be nay-sayers, and you can't please everyone, but compared to everything else I've seen on tv I think BG is exceptional.
i completely agree. welcome to the forums.
