News & Interviews for Battlestar Galactica
Critic Reviews for Battlestar Galactica
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.
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.
Just finished watching all 24 episodes of the original series. What a fun ride down memory lane. Was a great time.
This bored me to tears. I could never get into the movie or the television series. It had a superb theme song, great ships, awesome Cylons, and a neato robot dog, but the human characters were dull; I didn't like any of them. The insectoid Ovions were cool when they were cocooning the people in the basement of the casino.
