Storyline

The number One Cylon brothers Cavil organize a massive coordinate simultaneous attack to destroy the twelve colonies, but it fails to wipe out human life or break the human spirit. They now orchestrate deceptive actions, infiltrating surviving communities, notably aboard flagship Battlestar Galactica and Samuel Anders's human trainees class on planet colony Caprica. Both sides must confront existential as well as pragmatical challenges to battle for survival. Written by KGF Vissers

What a pointless movie
15 November 2009 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

I had trouble following the thread of the film, and I've watched all BSG episodes religiously, so there is no chance in hell anyone else than a BSG fan could want to watch it. But then again it didn't provide any answers, just a feel good humanization of the cylon skinjobs, which felt stretched anyway.

Bottom line: a futile exercise, especially after we've seen the horrible ending of the series.

If this would have been released before the end of the fourth season, it would have made some sense, but like this... it was just a waste of time.
