It works not because ridiculousness is concealed, but because ridiculousness on this scale becomes something else. Don't let anyone tell you that Stargate, lifeless script and all, isn't clunky fun, proudly trembling on the brink of classic camp.

Stargate starts promisingly... But it then turns into an interminable exercise in special effects and not-so-special fisticuffs.

What Emmerich achieves is a sense of grand scale that makes the film fun to watch as a space adventure.

Promising setup killed by action-film cliches.

"Has matured wonderfully, sustaining as a curious genre exercise in blockbuster yearn marked by surprising buoyancy, madly entertaining performances, and a fertile cinematic imagination behind the camera not yet corrupted by massive box office success."

Still, this is a decent little diversion, the kind of pure popcorn fodder that would find a far more ballsy form when Will Smith took on city-sized flying saucers in Independence Day.

The main problem with Stargate is not with set-up, but with execution. After a while you feel like you're just watching weird people staggering around a desert.

A load of gibberish.

The thinness and bizarre randomness of the story is equalled by some unimpressive special effects

Note to director: sand, in and of itself, really isn't all that interesting.

An instant camp classic.
May 12, 2001
What starts out as not the same-old, same-old sci-fi quickly degenerates into the same-old, same-old action-movie gunplay, and all the potentially interesting ideas the film introduces end up virtually unexplored.
April 7, 2001 encouraging premise, good special effects, excellent sound, and one of the dumbest payoffs in big-budget film history.

A cinematic fireworks show without the grand finale.

The movie Ed Wood, about the worst director of all time, was made to prepare us for Stargate.

[A] loopy, mostly entertaining sci-fi adventure.

Stargate will satisfy those who are single-mindedly focused on the fabulous premise of instant travel through space, and time. But it could have, and should have, been done much better than this.
