Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray Review

18 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The Film The 2004 relaunch of Battlestar Galactica was a huge success for the Sci-Fi Channel (now known as SyFy). In fact, it did so well, it launched a pair of prequels. Caprica had Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales, but still only made it through one season. Then, the network planned Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome -- only to scrap plans and launch what they had as a 10-episode web series.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: Of the handful of 'Battlestar' spin-offs and prequels we've seen, both during ( 'Razor' ) and after ( 'The Plan' and 'Caprica') the series, I must confess that 'Blood & Chrome' is one of the best (I enjoyed 'Razor' quite a bit as well). It doesn't quite capture the magic of the series on which it is based, but it is a well-made attempt at doing so and I think, for the most part, 'Battlestar Galactica' fans are going to be quite pleased with the effort that was made here.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray Review

  • Conclusion: Blood & Chrome obviously failed to impress the powers that be, and I suspect it will fail to impress the majority of the BSG fanbase. It has its share of thrills and standout sequences, each loaded with potential, but time and time again it all falls short of greatness, drifting too far from the safety of the Battlestar fleet into the outer reaches of videogame-y space.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

1 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Set in the tenth year of the First Cylon War (roughly forty years before the events of Ron Moore’s reimagined series and nearly twenty years after those depicted in its sequel Caprica ), Blood & Chrome tells the story of the first combat mission of young William Adama as a freshly-minted Ensign aboard the Battlestar Galactica.  Though trained primarily as a Viper pilot, Galactica’s commander sends young Adama on an apparent “milk run” in a Raptor instead.
