Review of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome



Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Unrated Edition

If you haven’t seen or heard of Battlestar Galactica because you’ve been hiding under a rock or simply don’t watch the Sci-Fi Channel, here’s a quick recap: The Cylons are sentient robots created by mankind to do their dirty work. They got tired of being humanity’s bitch, rebelled and started kicking human ass across the 12 colonial worlds.


Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome follows the career of a young, talented fighter pilot William Adama during the first Cylon war. Knowing this guy grows up to be the most badass, admiral in the colonial fleet that eventually saves humanity, I had a tough time watching because well, he’s the typical asshole, rookie pilot in this series. Good at what he does and knows it, puts peoples lives in jeopardy showing off his flying skills. At odds with the battle hardened co-pilot he’s been assigned to fly with.

Their first time out, they have to transport a mysterious passenger deep into Cylon territory and eventually put aside their differences in order to complete the mission. Typical buddy flick. Overall it’s a good opener if they make this into a series. Not as epic as the new Battlestar Galactica was, but it’ll be hard to top that.

I’ve always been curious to see how the grizzled old Admiral Adama came to that level of badassery, and this movie is part of his story.

The never-before-seen, Unrated Edition will be available February 19, 2013 on Blu-ray combo pack with DVD, Digital Copy and Ultraviolet from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Well everything after that first part is true, because I watched this entire series when it started showing on the web back in November. You see, I am a fan of everything that is Battlestar Galactica, so I found everything I could related to it. Yes, even the original series! But back to Blood & Chrome. Fans will like this new release. Universal packaged everything up nice and neat into a 97 minute long feature. Since it’s unrated, there’s some nudity and a whole lot of expletives thrown in for good measure.

In addition to the Visual Effects feature, there are seven deleted scenes exclusive to the Blu-Ray Combo Pack, which I felt should have been kept in. I get that scenes may not make it into a movie because they add nothing to or might take away from the story, but no one would have noticed, and the film might have made it to 2 whole hours. At any rate, the coolest part about these combo packs aside from the extra features on-disc, are that they come with both Blu-Ray and DVD. You essentially get two physical copies for the price of one. Then throw in the digital/online stuff and you can literally watch them on any medium anywhere.

Simply put, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome is a must-have for any die-hard BSG fan.
