Of course you wonder what the resemblances are with Battlestar Galactica the TV series. I've only seen a couple of episodes so for the story I can't give any confirmation on how this prequel is correct. Only the special effects are almost the same, tacky in a way that they don't seem to fit completely in the real picture, I've noticed this two in the series. They could be better.

It's set in an already high tech, futuristic world, cool, fancy stuff is used frequently, also the settings are very nice. For the intro this means a certain spoof is going on, around which the movie evolves further, don't get fooled by this. It's certainly a touching story and all the elements of the series are there, just not in space.

There's a bigger thing going on between rising forces and in this growing contradiction, we only see certain pawns who seem to set it off. It's a very good creational story, I must say, also well supported and acted by Daniel and Allesandra. It touches the boundaries of the mind. Also a good scoop of action is given but in a different amount I expected, it still has to turn bad in the Galactic way, you get a very interesting concept of what's about to happen! Very cool!

Additionally I would like to start a FAQ here, asking why this seems to be the pilot, the first episode of the TV series 'Caprica'? I watched this 'movie' of 93 minutes, thinking it's a prequel to the TV series (2004-2009), instead IMDb states it consists of the first three episodes of the series 'Caprica, telling the exact same story'. Is this movie just a mashed together version of the three episodes? Or is this movie just them?
