This is unlike Stargate SG-1 TV series, it is a little more self-contained and is easily accessible for me that I have never watched the series - only season 6 to 10. I see a lot of old faces including Richard Dean Anderson from TV series pop up in this one!
The SG-1 series may be over, but new material keeps coming out. Stargate: Continuum is the second motion picture after the series finale and once again, SG-1 fans will be pleased.
As usual, familiarity with the show is a huge must because there is no character background or even story history. The film jumps right into its own plot with the expectation that the viewer knows the background of the series. Does one need to be an aficionado? No. Just the general basics will do. The show will explain just a few things to help out.
Stargate and time travel. 2 fantastic concepts come together to form this motion picture. Time travel alone can create an interesting plot and it does once again here. The nice thing about the story is that it isn't all that difficult to follow. There is good enough explanation to explain the events of meddling with time travel and while not everything is given an exact answer, there are Carter's theories that are enough to satisfy the question.
The earlier parts of the plot are all character and story, with the time spanning over 1 year. Any SG-1 fan will not worry because the story is far from boring. Besides, the action comes out to play in the latter parts with some great CG and air battles reminiscent of Independence Day
The cast is all intact once again with appearances from Richard Dean Anderson and Don Davis to top things off. I will also add that Claudia Black just looks yummy in her Quetesh outfit. There is even a cameo from good ol' Ra.
Stargate: Continuum is a movie made for SG-1 fans and it will be a shame for those that pass this up. It is a most excellent watch.
Excellent! They manage to bring most of the folks from the SG-1 universe in here for small cameos plus give us a massive story that gives us the feel of many episodes from the previous seasons. Time travel...check! Jack... check! Mind blowing story... indeed!
