Movie Info

The irrepressible Stargate team faces their biggest challenge yet as they set out in search of the ancient artifact with the power to defeat the villainous Ori before they launch a devastating attack on planet Earth. The Ori are determined to exterminate all traces of mankind, but not if Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), Teals (Christopher Judge), Vala (Claudia Black), Sam (Amanda Tapping), and Cam (Ben Browder) have anything to say about it. With a scheming I.O. operative aboard the Odyssey, the final fight for humanity begins to unfold in the deepest reaches of outer space. Beau Bridges co-stars.

    Well what can i say, i'm speechless again. All these years Stargate SG1 has amazed me permanently with it's never ending imagination, really really good and entertaining plots and adventures, very intriguing twists and one of the most charming, smart, good looking and selfless intergalactic team i've ever seen in a sci-fi tv series. A year later this movie is released, the movie that finally concludes with the downfall of the Ori with such an incredibly written idea. First it's amazing to see the whole SG1 team together again, (well except Richard Dean Anderson, but Ben Browder makes a good replacement for him), while they not only take on the Ori and their new leader Adria having all of the Ori powers within her, but thru a flawed human mistake, the replicators reborn are a huge pain in their ass. It's the same Stargate feel we've known over the years, same good quality sci-fi and again...highly entertaining. So there's Ori, Replicators, more Supergate action, the Odyssey with it's Asgard improvements (where the series left off) and ascended beings finally lending a hand. It is a great conclusion to the whole Ori saga and an incredible Stargate film. Cheers, here's hoping to see more. Enjoy!

    Honestly I was never a Stargate Fan. Wether the TV Series nor the Movies. I quit watching The Ark of Truth after about 30 minutes. I think it was a nice idea and all but I personally dont enjoy Stargate trilogy. The Only one I liked was the Original one with James Spader.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Stargate: The Ark of Truth" is a movie that serves as a belated conclusion for the Orai storyline on "Stargate SG1." For those of you late to the party, the Orai are a group of religious fundamentalists seeking to spread the word of Origin at gunpoint in order to receive power from their worshipers. They were introduced at a point in the series when it also became watchable with the additions of Beau Bridges, Ben Browder and Claudia Black to the cast.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]At the start of the movie, the SG1 team is after the Ark of Truth which can be used to change people's belief systems to your own and theoretically rob the Orai of their power, if they are even still alive. For example, if I set off this device in Yankee Stadium, then I could convert everybody there to Mets fans which would be cool. However, this device can also be used for evil. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Stargate: The Ark of Truth" is an anticlimactic movie with a spectacularly derivative tangent that except for some atypical location shooting and one naughty word does nothing to differentiate itself from the series, especially in failing to play the allegory card. To reinforce this, the movie leans heavily on the continuity of the series which is to be expected but the references get a trifle obscure, so maybe it is best to go with the 9 minute prologue on the DVD. At least, "Stargate Atlantis" managed to end with a bang.[/font]

    <i>Stargate SG-1</i> may be a defunct television series, but its legacy lives on in <i>Stargate: The Ark of Truth</i>. This adventure is the first film after the ending of the series and it provides a nice continuation to where the series left off.<p>Do you need to be a fan of the series to enjoy this movie? No. Do you need to be a fan of the series for this to make sense? H*** yes! There is a 9-10 minute prelude before the film, but even that won't help you if you haven't followed the series. As much as I want to recommend this to all science fiction fans, I can really only suggest this film to people that follow, at least, the latter seasons of the show. At the time of this viewing, I have seen less than 50% of the episodes, but I know enough about the story to easily follow this film.</p><p>The story isn't as complex as the TV series and that is a little bit of a disappointment. It does bring some nice closure to some elements while still leaving others open for future installments.</p><p>The story may be lacking, but the action sure isn't. There is a lot going on action wise and that makes the hour 40 minute picture fly by. The CG is great as usual and the same can be said about the sound effects.</p><p>All the major actors return to reprise their roles. Unfortunately, Don Davis and Richard Dean Anderson don't show up. The return of Morena Baccarin is candy for the eyes.</p><p>This is a must see for <i>Stargate SG-1</i> fans. For others, I recommend checking out some of the series first.
