Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: Razor

  • Mar 23, 2019
    A Sci-Fi Channel special event, Battlestar Galactica: Razor is a thrilling, action-packed adventure. When Lee Adama takes command of the Battlestar Pegasus he chooses Kendra Shaw, a protege of the late Admiral Cain who's haunted by the things she and the Pegasus crew have done to survive the war with the Cylons, to be his XO and help restore the crew's dignity and honor. Stephanie Jacobsen gives an excellent performance, making Shaw one of the most compelling characters of the series, and Michelle Forbes returns to reprise her role as Admiral Cain. Most of Battlestar Galactica's main cast make appearances, and there are subtle references to several Season 2 episodes that place the story in context. Unfortunately the CGI isn't up to the film's ambitious vision, as some of the Cylon Centurions and space ships are a little video game graphicy. Still, the action sequences are intense and exciting, and the writers do a good job at interweaving the backstories into the main plot. Battlestar Galactica: Razor is a powerful sci-fi drama that enriches the series and fills-in some of the missing pieces.

    A very interesting, and frankly, much-needed explanation of everything that happened to Battlestar Pegasus. I love the introduction of Kendra Shaw to the series--great character! I just wish she was around to be in some of the regular episodes of the show.

    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.
