Did You Know?


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 »


During the Recon Mission Starbuck's and Showboat's vipers continually change CGI design in each shot between the original viper 7 CGI design and the Design first scene in "Maelstorm", and end in the Flightpod shot as different designs to each other. See more »

Not as good as the show, but I didn't think it is as bad as people say it is
22 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I happen to like the show very much for how theatrical and intriguing it is, and I knew that Battlestar Galactica: Razor had a lot to live up to. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as the show and it wasn't, however it is better than the other Battlestar Galactica movie The Plan. Razor does have its problems of course, the characters don't have as much depth as they do in the series, the story does have moments where it is rather rushed and contrived despite some very intriguing moments and the dialogue at times does sound as though the writers didn't proof-read to make sure it made sense. Also what questions were left to answer after Season 3 weren't resolved as well as they could have been here. On the other hand, it has some cool-looking costumes and sets and is edited well. The music has many moments of rousing, haunting intensity, the idea was interesting and when it made sense and didn't feel rushed the film was quite thought-provoking as well as with some quirky revelations. The acting is decent enough. Overall, not bad(better than I have heard it made out to be, from what I heard I was expecting horse poop) but mildly disappointing at the same time. 6/10 Bethany Cox
