Product Overview

Picking up where Stargate: SG-1 left off, enjoy the continuation of one of sci-fi's most successful franchises! Featuring STARGATE: THE ARK OF TRUTH and STARGATE: CONTINUUM, get transported to faraway realms with this exclusive Double Feature from 20th Century Fox!

THE ARK OF TRUTH: This thrilling feature-length film picks up where Stargate SG-1 left off, thrusting the Stargate team -- Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), Vala (Claudia Black), Teal'c (Christopher Judge), Sam (Amanda Tapping) and Cam (Ben Browder) -- into their most exciting adventure yet. In search of an ancient artifact they hope can defeat the oppressive Ori, the team learns that the Ori are set to launch a final assault on Earth and a double-crossing I.O. operative is aboard the Odyessy!

STARGATE: CONTINUUM: An elite military unit (SG-1) must flee back to Earth when two members of their team inexplicably disappear into thin air. But they return to a world in which the Stargate -- an Ancient device which allows them to travel to hundreds of planets -- was never discovered, and their own history has been erased. Now they must convince a dubious government and military that the timeline was altered by a powerful Alien enemy (Ba'al) in order to conquer Earth, and time is not on their side...

Review [The Ark of Truth] I can't conceal the truth; the record is there for all to see. Long, long ago, way back before the Stargate SG-1 television series had achieved success and longevity, I panned the movie that started it all. And if you'd asked me back then whether it was likely to amount to a reasonably successful big-screen movie, a ten year run as a series, a spin-off of a new series, and a smattering of television movies to follow, I likely would have scoffed. Either that or made some cynical comment about what it takes to succeed in Hollywood...While I stand by my criticism of the original movie, I certainly can't deny the success of Stargate. So it's no surprise that the entertainment franchise built on a single gimmicky premise -- that of a portal through which it's possible to travel to all sorts of alien worlds that look an awful lot like earth at various stages of its history -- has come up with another movie, and another gimmick. Oh, the portal still exists, and now there's also the ark of truth, an ancient technology capable of wiping out the brainwashing of those who follow the dastardly Ori -- the current Great Threat to earth...Like with so many series and movies that are either long-running or based on other media, those who sit down to this movie as fans of its predecessors are likely to be happy with what they see, but those who are new to it are more likely to feel like they're sitting in on a private party. There's plenty of generic interstellar conflict and simplistic-character scene-chewing, but not a whole lot that's likely to win new viewers over...While it's been a long time since I trashed the original Stargate movie, I must say that this latest incarnation leaves me about equally cold.

Review [Continuum] Stargate: Continuum is a relatively stand alone project that attempts to tie a lot of series history together, designed largely for fans over newcomers, and easier to follow than the recent Ark of Truth for those that haven't watched the show religiously (pun intended). The world is contemporary to our own and the space faring ways of our military are largely secret to the general population, the thought being that the public would panic if they knew how many times the program itself invited danger to Earth. In the years of the programs existence, we have made powerful enemies, powerful allies, and encountered a wide variety of sentient life forms that have alternately helped or hindered our progress; the program establishing principles of first contact and a code of conduct not completely alien to the Star Trek franchises Prime Directive...Stargate: Continuum seemed to suffer from the same issues the series fell prey to since the show was taken over by the Sci-Fi Channel; budgets too low to support the ideas at hand being the biggest problem of all...The acting was about average for the series and fans wanting one last go will find it worthwhile to check out but make no mistake, this should have been so much better that accepting it as a wonderful return to the series is about as far from the truth as could be. I'm not going to be one of the apologists blindly hawking the movie in hopes of another, better, release in the future; I expect the producers to give fans exactly what we deserve as loyal fans of the series (and nothing less). In all then, it was a pretty fair effort of the producers that will entertain you but I don't see this one making a lot of new fans as it should have done.

Christopher Disher, DVDizzy.com [The Ark of Truth] ...packed full of the excitement, humor, and charm that characterized the "SG-1" series.
Josh Tyler, Cinema Blend [Continuum] ...easily the most entertaining thing that's ever been done with these characters and this universe...
Matt Chapman, Total Sci Fi [Continuum] ...fans will enjoy seeing the return of a few friendly faces and a rousing end leaves things on a high.
TheSciFiBlog Movie Review [The Ark of Truth] As a finale to the Ori storyline, "Ark of Truth" hits the mark, and makes for a nice jumping off point to "Stargate: Continuum"...
