It Will Take You A Million Light Years From Home
After a mysterious portal is unearthed in giza, an egyptologist and a military commander are unlikely companions into another dimension where an evl tyrant rules supreme.

"Interesting odyssey, impressively mounted and jammed with visual effects...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
"The effects conjured up...are inventive, often even thrilling.  Hal Hinson, Washington Post

Editor's Note
In this visually creative space adventure from the team that would go on to give the world INDEPENDENCE DAY and GODZILLA, a timid, glasses-wearing Egyptologist (James Spader) uncovers an ancient portal to another planet and is dispatched there forthwith--along with blundering, clodfooted government troops (led by Kurt Russell). The downtrodden populace they encounter, ruled by godlike, androgynous King Ra (Jaye Davidson, in his first role after becoming a star in THE CRYING GAME), must be led to literacy and freedom; Ra must be defeated; the intellectual must find his machismo; and our boys must return to Earth.

Expert Review Stargate - DVD Review
By: Christopher Null filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 10/16/2009 5:10 PM
When did I miss the event that made Stargate worthy of an "Ultimate Edition" DVD, complete with director's cut? I guess that MacGyver-starring TV show thing is more popular than I thought. Anyway, if you're unfamiliar with Stargate, the story is pretty straightforward. Military types unearth a big metal ring encoded with Egyptian hieroglyphics, then import a kooky archeologist (James Spader) to figure out what it does -- which, within 30 minutes, involves the opening up of a portal to another world, millions of light years away....read the full review

James Berardinelli's ReelViews 5 of 10
Stargate is peppered with numerous minor faults, some of which - although not all - are easily forgiven. It's the bigger plot problems and lackluster climax which are more difficult to excuse. Director Roland Emmerich, who previously made Universal Soldier, appears infatuated with his film's look without caring if anything moderately substantial lies beneath the glitz. Stargate is all flashes and bangs - a cinematic fireworks show without the grand finale. - James Berardinelli
