It may have the mark of 70s cheese upon it, but I'd take this over the morose, self-important nonsense of the reboot any day.

I will say, though, given how utterly stupid most of the humans act in this film, you can't really blame the Cylons for wanting to exterminate them.

Note: Matthau is credited as "operative" but his single line in the script is given to David Greenan in the film, so apparently he was cut.
