REVIEW:

After 40 years of peace, the Cylons, a race of humanoid robots created to serve man, launched a nuclear attack on the Twelve Colonies, the planet of the human race. The remaining human refuges left the dying planet on the last remaining military fleet called Battlestar Galactica, under the leadership of Admiral Adama, for the unknown planet called Earth. Battlestar Galactica is a science fiction serialized drama on the Scifi Channel that started in 2004 as a re-imagining by show’s creator Ronald D. Moore which will encompass the original story and characters of the classic 70’s version, but will also incorporate Moore’s own vision and ideas.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan retells the story of the first two years of the series from the perspective of the Cylons. It uses previous clips from the series with new information about certain plot details. However, it felt completely all over the place and never seemed to mesh well. This feels more for hardcore fans than it does about fans interested in learning something new. There’s really nothing new, or important, that’s worth knowing.

However, there were some memorable performances specifically from Dean Stockwell who plays the cold ruthless Cavil, the de facto leader of the Cylons. We also get some more back story on Boomer (Park), however there wasn’t anything particularly revealing. I mean, you could have come to certain conclusion on your own just from watching the series. It seemed rather pointless to incorporate her story into The Plan. Although both Park and Stockwell provide sterling performances, the special effects are, as always, terrific.

The popular science fiction epic uses computer graphics and special effects not seen on any television series, yet The Plan, like the series, only uses them when necessary to help advance the story rather than for shock value or entertainment purposes. The writing alone is strong and compelling because it allows for the story to continue while also allowing the characters to develop. This is essential in any television program, especially in a science fiction series in which the viewer must suspend disbelief to be engaged in the environment and characters we are watching. But still, that’s not to say this is worth buying because honestly, it’s not.

Battlestar Galactica will always be considered one of the best science fiction series in recent years. However, although the show can be simply categorized in a genre such as science fiction, what Battlestar Galactica does with this genre is what makes it stand out the most. We as the audience can enjoy a new experience because the show uses a realistic tone set by the writing and the characters to allow the viewers to be drawn deeper into the story.

Character development works well in The Plan because we see the character change from archetypes of a hero and villain into real people. Their decisions are not on a whim, but rather become a gradual process that reflects the situation and circumstances that forces them to make those crucial decisions, whether good or bad. This adds to the realistic tone of the show allowing the series to stand out from other science fiction programs on today, and shows up in The Plan. But we’ve seen all that before.

The Plan offers us nothing new, and it’s for that reason that the film fails. There’s really no reason to see this film other than to get a quick fix on the series that ended several months ago. But with Caprica on the horizon, trust me when I say, just wait and be patience. Remember Battlestar Galactica for the original and terrific series that it was, not the uninspired and disappointing film they left behind with The Plan.
