  • Richard A. Colla directed, and Robert L. Kimble led the team of editors faced with the impossible task of carving a masterpiece out of a monstrosity. What they got is a monumental turkey - and just in time for Thanksgiving.

  • With strictly tele-standard acting, straightforward space opera plot, grandiose sentiment and slushy love interest, it's really only meat for genre fans.

  • The movie evinces a complete lack of imagination. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • Although evidently a rip-off - there were hints of Lucas even taking the matter to the courts - this spacebound wagon train, whose limits are readily apparent, is great fun.

  • Money shows, but pace and acting suffer.

  • A Star Wars clone for the boob tube crowd that never quite captured the imagination or originality that an ambitious sci-fi showcase should exude so effortlessly.

Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica

    This is the film which started the classic TV series. In fact, it may have been better to leave it as a film, or film series, and not gone to TV, but that's just my opinion. I really liked this movie, it's exciting, fun, and a sometimes unintentionally very funny. It's not a fantastic movie, but I enjoy it.

    The original television series taken and put the first few shows into one big movie. Battlestar Galactica is a cult sci-fi classic from the late 70's. A story about a planet of humans on the run in space from the robot race called the Cylons. The humans are in search of the legend planet called Earth. I enjoyed this when I was a child. I watched the movie, shows and had tons of the toys. After watching this again as a adult I found it to be a bit dull now. The show had a great idea and great F/X for it's time. But does not hold up to today's standard. The shows did have a all star cast with Lorne Greene, Dirk Benedict, Richard Hatch and Jane Seymour to make the show more creditable. I still enjoy the look of the Cylons today. They were great villains for the show. The show still has a loyal following and has spawned new television series for new fans. Worth a watch if you like sci-fi.
