Movie Info

The advanced cyborg race of Cylons living secretly embedded among humans has a plot to wipe out the human race with a series of nuclear attacks, but things don't necessarily go as planned. Led by Brother Cavil (Dean Stockwell), the Cylons keep hitting obstacles in their genocidal conspiracy, not the least of which is the botched assassination attempt by Boomer (Grace Park) on human Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos), a shot led astray by Boomer's guilty conscience.

Critic Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: The Plan

  • The project might all be an exploitative departure from the ''Battlestar Galactica'' brand name, but it's hard not to like where the spacemen (and spacewomen) are going.

  • It's a type of world-building best-suited to endless franchises-the multi-book series, the film trilogy, the serialized television show. The detail is there for richness, not for third-act plot expediency.

  • And what is "Galactica," old or new? A high-flying trifle. Choice, cheesy adventure. Sci Fi pulp. So stop squeezing your thermoses, turn off your brain, and enjoy.

    April 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "Battlestar Galactica" takes a while to find its directional heading and build up steam, but once it does, this proves to be a surprisingly engrossing odyssey.

  • ...the picture improves immeasurably once the aforementioned conflict kicks into high gear...

    October 9, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The new "Battlestar Galactica" is joyless, somber and a little boring.

Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: The Plan

  • Jul 14, 2012
    this epic mini series leading up to the television show is by far one of the best sci fi movies ever created. the only problem I now have is that the show took a drastic turn and would never reach these heights again. The fighting scenes alone will keep you glued awaiting some impressive flight scenes. the casting of James Olmos clearly set the bench mark for quality and its he's strength that gives this film and the series a backbone.

    This breathtaking miniseries that started the exceptional TV series features a steady direction, great dialogue and elegant long takes, while also raises many moral issues with intelligence and keeps the focus always on the characters and on the human aspect of the battle.

    This three hour miniseries is absolutely stunning in so many ways I don't even know where to begin. It puts us in the middle of a world with a complex history. It, unapologetically, launches the story straight away. I like the fact it assumes we know this fictitious world. It forces you to keep paying attention, as there is a lot going on. History, plot, characters, twists and turns are all crammed into 180 minutes, but it doesn't feel bloated or rushed. If anything, it has perfect pacing. To feel this connected and this involved with a large group of characters after just three hours is quite amazing. The large group of characters contains familiar but reliable archetypes, and more complex characters. My favorite would have to be James Callis. He portrays a selfish but conflicted man, somewhat responsible for the end of humanity. He is joined by a Jiminy Cricketesque subconscious, that takes the form of a very sexy Cyclon. Lots of terminology, politics, religious and technological debates abound. If you like your TV (or even movies) dense, well rounded, beautifully scripted, and utterly engaging, please check this out. Now if you'll excuse me, I have 4 seasons to be getting on with.

    Partially funded by Mormon organizations. LDS subtexts. Adama = Adam. Borderline church propaganda. How the Earth was repopulated by "aliens', prophecies, martyrs etc. Strickly for the Sci-Fi aspect: not bad. I liked Firefly better.
