Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.
The colonial viper pilot costumes were designed to be "reminiscent" of the uniforms worn on the original Battlestar Galactica. Specifically, the outfit includes a quilted, v-shaped tunic cover, and the helmet has a falcon insignia above the face (although this is small and dark, as opposed to the original large, gold bird on an Egyptian-style helmet).

First of all let me say that I am a very big fan of BSG. Last night I watched BSG Razor with my girlfriend and we both agree that Razor has some major flaws. The story itself could have been interesting but the way all the pieces are put together is confusing and lacks the overall quality of the show that I came to expect from BSG. Most of the Razor story is told by flashbacks of a prior side character, Kendra Shaw. The story quickly gets confusing when other parts of the story also get told by flashbacks from Adama and Admiral Cain, which doesn't seem very creative. Actually it is very boring. Imho it doesn't really seem like the writers put as much effort into this movie like they used to with each episode of the TV series. I won't go into any details of the story for those that haven't seen the DVD yet, but another flaw is that at the end of the movie, the viewer gets nothing out of it. The story serves no purpose, there is no big revelation except maybe one sentence by a hybrid, but hey we all know that something is up with Kara Thrace. No need to watch those 104 minutes for it.
The directing of this movie is also very different from the series. I am not a big fan of this modern shaky camera thing, or documentary style camera, which is supposed to give the viewer some sort of feeling like he or she is part of the action. To me this is just plain stupid and very hard to watch. Usually this is kept to a "necessary" minimum on the TV series, which doesn't pose much of a problem. Now with BSG Razor it is a different story. The camera-work is really bad, every action scene is zoomed to the max and the camera is so shaky that it is really hard to keep track of what is happening.
For a movie it is always a bad sign when you have two directors listed in the credits. I just wish they would have let Michael Rymer sit in the director's chair, he did a flawless job on the series so far and probably would have done much better as Alcalá & Rose did together.
So overall I am sad that I have to say it but BSG Razor wasn't worth watching, bad storytelling, bad directors and bad editing.
5 out of 10 from be because BSG is my favorite show.
looking forward to season 4...
