[Battlestar Galactica] Razor's best service, beyond reminding us why Galactica is one of the best television shows on the air, is in filling in the story's historical gaps.
In keeping in line tonally with the rest of the series, as well as for the way it adds new texture to old ideas, "Razor" becomes not so much an anomaly as a valuable part of the story so far.
Schizophrenic plot . . .
Razor is filler, but good filler
Razor does not work as a stand-alone movie, being more of a backdrop for season 4 - even if it takes place before the settling in New Caprica. Among its efficient elements, it gives new details about the origin of the hybrid cylon, but some unnecessary scenes could have been left out.
Need to know battlestar in order to watch this movie, I myself am a huge battlestar galactica fan so loved this special movie!
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.
