Battlestar Galactica: Razor (2007) was conceived as a standalone bridge between the third and final seasons of Battlestar Galactica (2004). Universal's home video division approached the show's executive producer Ronald D. Moore about making a film that would be sold on DVD immediately after its broadcast. Moore was interested in the proposition, mainly because Universal offered to subsidize part of the production costs. See more »

Extension of Adama's flashback to the end of the First Cylon War: he'd shot down two raiders during an engagement with a base star, during which the battlestar Columbia is destroyed. He chases two more raiders into a planet's atmosphere, where he shoots down one and rams the other, forcing him to eject. He and one Cylon centurion shoot at each other while they freefall, but Adama pops his parachute and lets the centurion keep going. After landing, he smashes the centurion to nonfunction and takes its gun, which he carries into the hybrid lab. Once there, he has a vision of Cylons vivisecting people in order to create the hybrid
Flashback to Helena's childhood on Tauron during the end of the First Cylon War: she and her kid sister Lucy are forced to leave their father during a Cylon attack on their town. Lucy falls and can't get up, while Helena runs into a shipping container, where she finds the jackknife and waves it at a centurion that finds her. The Cylons then leave, but Helena finds only Lucy's doll because they'd abducted her
A truly disturbing tale of a battlestar not as lucky as Galactica
To begin with, everything that makes the Battlestar Galactica TV-series great also applies to Razor. The writing, acting and visual effects are all superb, and the plot is good though not a gem by any rate. That said, Razor is darker than anything we have seen so far.
To be a razor is to be heartless and soulless for as long as you have to be, because if you don't survive, you don't get the opportunity to become human again. This is Admiral Cain's philosophy as she leads the Pegasus into a hopeless war against the cylon armada. Although the movie gives some insight and understanding of Cain's character, it doesn't deliver enough to justify the atrocities committed, and I came out hating Cain more than ever.
The scope is admirable, but selling Cain and her ilk as heroes is a hard thing to do, and it just doesn't get there.
