Storyline

Having extracted a confession from Col. Telford, Col. Young and his troops prepare for the expected attack from the Lucian Alliance. Hotly pursued by Col. Samantha Carter, the Lucian Alliance's Commander Kiva orders everyone through their gate and directly onto the Destiny. Young anticipated their plan and was intent on letting them get control of the gate room but then cut off life support to them. He has to change his strategy when he realizes that Col. Telford has jumped with them. In the ensuing skirmishes, several of Young's personnel, including TJ and Lt. Scott are taken prisoner and Commander Kiva is quite prepared to kill them all if need be.

unnecessary distractions
5 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's see. Oh yeah, the reason i may be unnecessarily distracted may be the disturbing image of pathologically chewed fingernails that "i wanna be peter Jackson" Andy Mikita put in my head...... It is absolutely beyond me as to why some directors seem to think that close ups of grotesquely chewed past the quick fingernails might be a useful photographic effect when in reality it just stuns the audience into losing track of the action and as well, what it has to do with the story (if anything) could easily be managed by more relevant means.

The same loss of focus thing happened to people watching Lord of the Rings .....as far as i can tell it almost ruined that astounding effort for some viewers if you consider the unbelievable amount of flap-jaw about it ......... it is clearly a counter-productive effect..........the only pseudo-logical reason i can think of as to why a director would want to embarrass an actor at the risk of his story-line might be some kind of weird passive aggressive/sadistic John Ford/John Wayne dynamic (if this needs explanation, then you are not much of a movie fan).............haven't these guys ever heard of hand models? ......they must still exist, or at least, i'm sure that makeup people would be happy to glue on some fake nails in order to preserve the audience train of thought rather than have the story interrupted by thoughts of the hero's hideously mutilated fingertips ...........sure there is a place for hideous deformity in science fiction but i don't think it serves a greater purpose when pushing a button or holding a ring or any other mundane yet supposedly suspenseful moment.....................

Also, the Colonel SHOULD have been relieved after blowing the ambush in the gate room, it was unbelievably unprofessional and frankly, not very believable.
