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

For fans of the series ONLY!!
23 June 2010 | by masakiumaSee all my reviews

The synopsis given by "official" sources says that this movie reveals the Cylons' Plans from before the attack on the colonies up through the end of Season 2.

This review will be extremely short, as talking about much of it at all would be spoiling both the movie and the series.

The movie basically follows 'Number 1,' both the one on Caprica and the one in the fleet, and how they change throughout the course of the series. Unfortunately, it only covers up through season 2, so this so called "Plan" was boiled down to simply kill all humans. Nothing the audience of BSG didn't already know, right? The movie was okay, but it ended up feeling like a long string of deleted scenes from the series. If you have seen the whole series, then it is a must-see, even if there is nothing new.

Taken as a standalone movie, it is easily a 1/10. However, there is NO WAY someone who has not seen the entire series of BSG should even consider watching this. It doesn't introduce anything new really, but it is a decent addition/companion to the series that all hardcore fans need to see.
