Trivia

Battlestar Galactica: Razor (2007) was conceived as a standalone bridge between the third and final seasons of Battlestar Galactica (2004). Universal's home video division approached the show's executive producer Ronald D. Moore about making a film that would be sold on DVD immediately after its broadcast. Moore was interested in the proposition, mainly because Universal offered to subsidize part of the production costs. See more »

Doesn't hack it as a standalone movie
5 January 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is a great episode of galactica that sits outside the main plot to the fill some gaps for avid fans. However after seeing this in the DVD store its obviously being packaged as a standalone movie to which it doesn't stay true. Straight off the boat there are specific references to moments you'll barely remember as an avid fan. I tried to introduce my friend to galactica with this episode and we gave up after 2 minutes. Its used as a mechanism to introduce new characters for the next series and show their role in the pegasus plot tree. Even as an avid fun up for a good episode I would recommend some revision of the previous series beforehand.
