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

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 outer space codswallop!

Roland Emmerich's reign of terror begins ...

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.

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.

...an encouraging premise, good special effects, excellent sound, and one of the dumbest payoffs in big-budget film history.

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

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

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.

A cinematic fireworks show without the grand finale.
