Product description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

If you're browsing this product, chances are you've seen BSG through to its crescendo. For those that have not, I advise coming back to this after you've completed viewing. There's some spoiler-ish stuff here.

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.

I really don't know why this has had some negative reviews. It is a great movie and most definitely fills in some of the lacunae of the series. People have complained that it contains clips from the series, but these are both entirely appropriate to this movie and so well integrated that it's hard to see the joins - and there really isn't that much repeat material. For me a quote from Eddy Olmos (who directed the movie) in one of the special features says it all. He notes that once you watched The Plan you'll want to rewatch the series and will get new nuances from it that you didn't see before. he's so right. The "Plan" isn't any kind of earth shattering secret that we haven't already worked out - but that's not the point of the movie. Instead it explains why the Cylons changed in the way they did and adds some extra dimensions to them that weren't revealed in the series. I thoroughly recommend this DVD.

I am a huge fan of the re-imagining of "Battlestar Galactica" and loved the entire series. While "Razor" was a great movie, "The Plan" is somehow a disappointment. Sure, it gives you some additional information, but it doesn't really add anything important to the drama. And you dont get the feeling of watching a movie. More like a loveless stringing together of scenes. It has something "unfinished" and does not satisfy. Feels artificial. Somebody who doesn't know the series would be totally lost anyway, which should not happen in a movie. No: "The Plan" is some fodder for fans, but I guess they/we will still stay hungry for something real...

Battlestar Galactica's desperate crew members were always great recyclers. Short on replacement parts, they kept their aging spaceships humming by reusing whatever bits and pieces of technology they had lying around. That recycling continues in 'Battlestar Galactica: The Plan'.

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.
