Im Suprised to see this rated so high. As a movie alone it wasnt great, not even avarage. I love the Babylon 5 series and this was the pilot that gave that great epic and under-rated series its first breathe of life. However i cant help feeling if i wasnt a fan this on its own would be barely watchable. Its almost unfair to judge it as a movie as its more a large epesode, and although its not bad there are better. If you are planning to emerse yourself in the Babylon 5 series watch this before season 1 and not 'in the beggining' which you should watch after this and season 4. If your not then there are far better sci-fi movies out there.
