One of the BEST Sci-Fi movies about Ancient Egypt

by Manny M. on 3/24/2014

When I first saw this movie in the Theaters way back in 1994, I was blown away!!. The special effects were way ahead of there time. I normally don't buy movies, but after I saw Stargate, I knew I would definitely buy this movie for my collection. Read More

Editors Note
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.

Reviews
ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review 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.
