Battlestar Galactica Razor
I have to say this; I have only seen a handful of episodes from the actual series and all of the miniseries episodes. I would say I’m not the strongest fan of the show, but I like it. However, I respect Ron Moore a great deal, and I think he’s doing a good job with the show. So, I came into this movie with an open mind, because I trust Mr. Moore.
I found Razor to be a pretty good story overall. With some editing, it could have very well been released in a limited fashion in theaters. The story is deeply rooted in the history and lore of the essence of Battlestar Galactica. In fact, the story digs so deep that causal viewers will be completely lost. You see, this story is for the fans; the ones that like the new show and the ones that enjoy the 70s show.
The story is incredibly dense with multiple flashbacks within flashbacks. Think of this movie as LOST on speed. However, for the most part, it works well. And, when you see the ending you’ll understand why. Could the show be moving into time travel soon? There are hints of it in this movie, if you watch carefully. So, I commend
This is probably my biggest beef with Razor. I think this story needed to be expanded to at least 4-6 hours, turning it into a miniseries. While I enjoyed the complex plot, the character and plot points needed to be fleshed out more. This is a story that very well could have worked on a grand scale.
