Daniel, a language specialist, unknowingly, takes a job for the military deciphering Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. The purpose is to unlock the Stargate and figure out what's on the other side. Although it works and they discover who built the device, it comes at a cost. Although the idea is solid, the film itself is plagued with stereotypes, poor plot points, and too many conveniences that can't be ignored. Moments of the film grew annoying overtime, as struggles were repeated over and over again. The pacing was also strange. The beginning was far too fast and the ending seemed slow. It's a decent film, but nothing fantastic. Good for a lazy night in.

A great idea is wasted in an overblown and underwritten sci-fi full of stereotypes and bog-standard plot devices. Even the brief and infrequent action sequences fail to ignite any excitement at all. Without Richard Dean Anderson's post modern wisecracking the whole idea just seems self important and dull.

A lackluster sci-fi film that doesn't have the same spark or magic as other similar films in the genre. What really brings the film down is the pacing, which is uneven, and often slow. Kurt Russell does an admirable job in the lead role, but the film's plot and script doesn't give him much to work with.

Not even a guilty pleasure. I liked every actor in it (rare). Sci-fi archaeology.

A bit slow, but still pretty good

In 1928, a strange object was uncovered in the sands of Egypt with never before seen hieroglyphics engraved on it.

Fast forward almost 70 years later. "Dr. Daniel Jackson" (James Spader), who believes that there is a connection between life on Earth and life from outer space, has been asked to join a Top Secret government project which revolves the object discovered in Egypt.

"Dr. Jackson" is joined by "Col. Jack O'Neil" (Kurt Russell) on the military side of the project. "O'Neil", who has been depressed since the accidental shooting death of his son, was recalled to duty to head up the project.

After "Dr. Jackson" figures out the hieroglyphs, the "StarGate" is activated and a probe is sent through. The on-board tracking system tracks the probe traveling to a distant side of t...
