Razor does not work as a stand-alone movie, being more a backdrop for season 4 - even if taking place before the settling in New Caprica. Among the efficient things, it gives new details about the origin of the hybrid cylon, but some unnecessary scenes could have been left out.

The Battlestar team add some more twists and turns. Full review later.

A TV movie that examines plot points long after they are relevant to the actual series. This goes back in time to series 2, and then even further back to the 1st cylon war. The importance of this movie is mostly character based. We also see the difficult decisions that must be made in combat. Many may see Cain as an absolute bitch with no redeeming qualities, but told through the eyes of our new protagonist Jacobsen, we see that war isn't about easy choices. Civilians have to die, orders must be obeyed, and fear and doubt can put everyone at risk. Battlestar Galactica has always been good at balancing its characters and their actions. We have no villains, just differing opinions. The action scenes are exciting, but don't expect to see any major reveals here. It's just a little something extra to understand the world and situations.
