Critic Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: The Plan
I found the movie to be a piece of brilliant writing because it managed to retrofit a neat little story arc into an existing series.
... neither sequel nor prequel to show but an imaginative bookend, a retelling of the saga in digest form from the Cylon perspective.
Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: The Plan
Even if showing more of the cylon attack on the 12 colonies, this fragmented and unnecessary BSG movie doesn't add anything new or relevant to the completed series and also relies on many flashbacks of scenes that had already been shown before.
Underwhelming, but mostly meh
If The Plan is the last of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica that we'll ever see, does it complete the series in a bang, or a whimper? I'd say somewhere between the two. Where Razor was a fun side-story that added some welcome, but unessential details to the Battlestar Galactica cannon, The Plan is really nothing more than a retelling of the majority of the story, from the Cylon's point of view. Specifically, the points of view of two Cavil's and two Simon's. We get a few answers during the movie that explain some minor, niggling questions, and those were pretty cool. But everything else is either just a review of events that were driven by the Cavil's, outside of our knowledge, a few scenes that more fully integrate the Final Five into the earlier parts of the series, or a look at the experiences that the two Simon's had with the humans that they were close to. One's and Four's are among my least favorite Cylon models, so I can't say that I was exactly thrilled that they were the focus of the majority of the story. But I did feel like I knew more about the Cylons and the mythology of the series after I watched it, so it was worthwhile for me. I'm not going to complain about any new BSG, and getting to see some of my favorite characters one last time was worth the price of admission, by itself. Just look at it as a long recap episode with some never before seen footage, and you won't be disappointed. Razor was better, but The Plan serves its purpose somewhat well, and its a bittersweet final entry for anyone who's a fan of one of the best TV shows in years.
