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

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.

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

The thinness and bizarre randomness of the story is equalled by some unimpressive special effects
| Original Score: 2.5/5

April 7, 2001 encouraging premise, good special effects, excellent sound, and one of the dumbest payoffs in big-budget film history.
| Original Score: 6/10

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.

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.

The story's so weak that it's almost opaque.
