firstly do not view until you have watched up to season 3

having watched the series 1-5 there are many unanswered questions you will have.
The plan goes out to clear the answers or at least give you an idea on how the cylons were thinking and what they wanted to acheive.

focusing on Cavil, his dedictation to the work he has taken on this exploration of his mind shows his absolute hate of humanity, why he wants us destroyed.....in ways one has to feel to sorry for him. he can see everything going on, but is blinded by his prejudice.

it also shows us that the cylons do have a heart, a moral code, and question their decisions, they are not machines humans think they are...it could be the reverse is true that adama, roslin and the fleet are more of a killing machine than the very race they created.

the plan is essential part of the BSG collection, and one that all lovers of the reimagined battlestar require..

as said dont watch this until you have done at least season 3, if you have never watched BSG75 still dont watch it until you have done what i have advised..

I tip my hat to Jane espenson and Edward james olmos and the cast in the expansion, it makes things all connect..

so say we all....

Being a Battlestar Galactica fan, I had to buy this to add to my collection. However, it is made for fans of the series and you would have to have watched seasons 1-3 to fully appreciate the narrative or it may not make much sense. Others have commented that it feels like several scenes pieced together and to some extent it does, but as I say it is clearly aimed at fans who have watched the series and not the one-time viewer. More of a complement to the series than a stand-alone feature. Still, a good watch but not as good as Razor.

Having seen the series and been impressed by it, i decided to buy this film despite the mixed reviews.
and having now watched the film i can understand exactly why there are mixed reviews. In fairness it did fill in
some of the gaps in the series but it did so in a very fragmented and disjointed way. Its not something i would call a stand alone film and i would not recomment it unless you are a BG fan.

I watched this expecting a cheap cash in and I was surprised at how good it actually was. As said in other reviews, if you've not seen the full series then leave this until you have as there are spoilers and you'd spend most of your time wondering what all the unhinged nonsense was talking about.

If you're a fan of the show, from the action scenes to the character and plot building episodes, then this will be welcomed to your collection.

Being a bit of a nerd I loved this, and the ending, I thought was fantastic.

In my opinion, if you're a true fan you'll love this and should definitely buy it.

Well I was disapointed. It seems that more money was spent on the box than the special effects from the new footage. The older footage we have seen before was as before grainy in places but still HD. The new footage was low budget effects with obvious annoying unrealistic flaws. The story for the first hour is what you already know from watching the complete series and I could not see the point. You will have to watch to make up your own mind on that. It is a nice addition and a nice idea as I was one of the fans left feeling a little unsatisfied with the ending of the final season. This DVD was supposed to tie it all together but I will have to watch it again as for now cant see the point of it. I give it TWO and 1/2 stars out of 5.

Battlestar Galactica is a great series. Razor is also a great film. Although The Plan has a lot of repetition that conside with the series. But it does round off a few loose ends but over all it mostly show what you may already know or guess from the series.

Totally pointless!
A waste of time!
It was like watching a compilation of deleted scenes stretched over an hour and 40 minutes!
My advice is to avoid it.

Pointless prequel - or something - what the hell was that all about? Just rehashed the actual series (which was outstanding) and edited it together with a few new scenes. Don't bother.

if your a battlestar fan this is great
the atmosphere and everything else is in keeping with the rest
it gives some insight into the struggle from the cylons point of view
my only real complaint is that it doesnt go far enough
it takes us up to the point of the truce
i could stand to watch the rest
i dont know what film the negative reviewers were watching but if they wanted more action whats the point
theres no point in showing all the battles again as weve seen them already.
it is a shame this is not to be included in any of the boxsets.
i cant wait till the caprica series next year
