Feature-length spin-off episode of the American sci-fi series. Set in the reimagined version of the fictional Battlestar Galactica universe, the film interweaves newly-filmed material with a compilation of archive footage from the television series and mini-series. When the initial Cylon attack against the Twelve Colonies fails to wipe out the human race as planned, two powerful Cylon leaders must improvise to destroy the remaining human survivors.
When the final credits rolled on the end of Battlestar Galactica’s final season, you could be forgiven for thinking that’s your lot. Granted, there was one hell of an ending to wrap your head around, but the tale had pretty much been told. Or, as it turned out, it’d nearly been told. For Battlestar Galactica: The Plan wraps up the plot element that had never been fully addressed by the show during its run: just how did the Cylons put their dastardly scheme together in the first place.
Battlestar Galactica: The Plan sets about answering that question with the help of lots of footage from the show across its run. Skilfully weaving new events around scenes that seasoned Battlestar fans will know oh-so-well, The Plan confidently fills in some of the gaps, and further fleshes out the Cylons are three-dimensional foes of extreme danger.
Is it a satisfying TV movie that comes out of the end of it? Just about, yes. It’s hard to argue that The Plan is entirely necessary, as all it adds is a little bit of gravy over the top of the main dish if anything. But it’s still a fun, clever addition to the Battlestar Galactica universe, and satisfyingly digs more and more into the plans of the Cylons that kickstarted the whole series off. --Jon Foster--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a great companion to the first two seasons. While not crucial in the overarching storyline, it offers a chance to step back through the early episodes with hindsight of what we now know about the identities of the Cyclons, the fate of 'Brother Cavil', and the true nature of Cylons. The production expertly weaves existing footage of the early seasons with new back stories and revealing vignettes that occurred 'off-camera'. Why did a Six risk cover by stepping forward to accuse Baltar of treason, only to disappear? How did Leoben and Doral, two of the first Cylon agents to be discovered, continue to have copies in the fleet until their demise? Why was Boomer so conflicted about her mission? And what was Brother Cavil's "plan"? All of these gaps are filled.
The real treat here is simply that it is more BSG, featuring some of the regular cast plus more screen time for the supporting players. Simon's storyline examines why the Cylons found it so hard to defeat humanity even after bringing them to their knees. The always excellent Dean Stockwell as Cavil is the main focus of the story, hiding in plain sight as he struggles to wage covert a war against the 'infection' of humanity, and against human nature tainting his Cylon subordinates in their everyday lives. And, of course, the soundtrack by BSG maestro Bear McCreary is flawless and sublime.
The Plan features very little to no extra scenes for the major crew members of Galactica, save Boomer, Anders and Tyrol.Read more ›
Even after all this time, (having purchased the original American Blu-Ray release last year), I'm still torn over this final Battlestar movie. It's good, but it's not great - it's fun, but it's far from perfect - it's interesting, but at times feels incomplete or leaves you feeling somewhat frustrated in wanting that little bit more exposition or other issues addressed.
But there are some real gems to be found and savoured here if you're prepared to look for them: like the storyline between Cavill and The Boy, which I found particularly rewarding and moving (wonderfully played as ever, by Dean Stockwell), the internal struggle that the Cylon model Simon (Rick Worthy) undergoes, and the tenderness towards his human wife that he retains, is powerful, and sheds new light on this previously mysterious model. There are also wonderful moments with Ellen, Shelley Godfrey and more. There IS much to be savoured here, but maybe like most spreads, it's spread a little too thinly at times and leaves you wanting more.
The real price of admission, however, is two-fold: Firstly, for Dean Stockwell's performance as Brother Cavill. I've always felt he was the most conflicted and complex of all the 'original' models and this film serves as his star turn. He is everywhere - at once a priest on the Galactica, a resistance warrior on New Caprica, scheming on the baseship.Read more ›

As I read in other reviews before purchasing this, there is a lot of repeated content from the main TV series but it's an interesting watch if you're keen on more BSG content.Published 7 months ago by Calen Oakenlight
