Just finished watching the box set of the original TV series, followed by this movie. This movie uses clips from the original show, and new scenes to present almost the same story in a somewhat different manner. I did some brief math and compared to the show, this movie moves at an Olympic Sprinter's pace. The first 60 of this 98 minute movie is used to give a very spark-notes like version of the first half of the show. There were characters, scenes and situations entirely cut. This leads to almost a hyper-active feeling because speaking moments are rapidly cut with action scenes cut with a moment that should be character building but they are already cutting to the next action scene. The next 38 minutes of this movie are where this movie differs from the series. The last half of the series is almost completely rewritten basically erasing many characters/plot points/events that would appear, and reversing the motivations of one of the most important characters. The events of the original last two episodes are used to set up a finale that, after this wild ride, feels only sub-par at best. In conclusion, I wouldn't recommend this movie. It's much too quickly paced, there is little characterization, events seem to happen that you might only understand if you watch the series, and many scenes (except the ones where they fight their way out with robots) have underwhelming conclusions. I wouldn't recommend getting this unless you are a completionist, otherwise, skip it.
