What I liked best about this movie was John Sheridan. Season three and season four have changed him in oh-so-many ways. His character, his personality. He's got the weight of many worlds on his shoulders. And it began to show. In this movie, there is a lightness, an exuberance almost. Here I saw the John that I remembered from earlier days. The John that I first came to love--just as Delenn came to love him. The John that made her start skipping.
And. I almost forgot. It has the MOST WONDERFUL--BUT PERHAPS WONDERFULLY AWKWARD SCENE--between Lyta and Zack in an elevator. It's a beautiful but heartbreaking scene, in my opinion. (You can watch it without it spoiling the movie.)
In this movie, Susan Ivanova (and some others from a flight squadron) discover an enormous artifact in hyperspace. They don't know what it is--or just how dangerous it may prove to be--but they bring it back with them for further study. And that's when things get a little interesting on the station.
The first part of movie.
This movie felt like a good, strong episode of the show. So that was nice. Is it the best science fiction movie ever? No, it's not meant to be. But if you do like the show--or LOVE the show--I think you'll find plenty to enjoy. The only thing that would have made this movie even better would have been Marcus!!! Oh how wonderful it would have been to see Marcus again!!!
