Product description

Product Description

Hard-bitten Colonel 'Jack' O'Neil (Kurt Russell) and Egyptologist Doctor Daniel Jackson (James Spader) are sent on a mission to investigate the theory that the pyramids were built by shape-changing aliens as a means of communication and pan-galactic travel. The pair arrive on a distant desert planet where they whip up the planet's natives into a rebellion against their dictator, Ra (Jaye Davidson).

From Amazon.co.uk

A self-consciously epic sci-fi adventure of Cecil B DeMille-sized proportions, Stargate refreshes and combines several well-worn sci-fi and sword 'n' sandal genre conventions with some Erich von Daniken-style Biblical Egyptology. The directing-writing-producing team of Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin had previously collaborated on B-movies Moon 44 (1990) and Universal Soldier (1992), but handed a significantly bigger budget they were able to give their Steven Spielberg pretensions free reign here ("Indiana Jones and his Close Encounters with the Chariots of the Gods" might be a suitable subtitle). James Spader is endearingly dithery as the fish-out-of-water academic who finds himself teamed with taciturn tough guy Kurt Russell: the two excellent leads are largely responsible for imparting what depth there is to otherwise two-dimensional characters. British composer David Arnold makes his major studio debut in the grandest fashion with an outstanding score that pays suitable homage to epic film music (John Williams' CE3K and Maurice Jarre's Lawrence of Arabia in particular). It's all done with such unabashed enthusiasm that viewers will happily forgive the film's derivative elements and even overlook the high-camp theatricality of Jaye Davidson's bizarre bad guy. Despite subsequent huge box-office hits (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot), Stargate remains Emmerich and Devlin's freshest, most satisfying film.

On the DVD: This special edition version adds approximately seven minutes of additional footage, much of which is in the form of slightly extended scenes, but does also include an opening sequence in Ancient Egypt, a scene with Kurt Russell and the fossilised Horus guards, and Ra's bath scene. These are also collected in a bonus "Promo Reel". The anamorphic widescreen presentation of the 2.35:1 Panavision picture looks sharp and clear, although some of the additional footage is degraded; the sound is suitably spectacular 5.1 or DTS. Devlin and Emmerich provide a relaxed, chatty commentary ("We have nothing to do with the TV series"!), although you have to access this from the Set Up menu not the Special Features menu. There's a photo gallery and trailer, but sadly no "making-of" documentary. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I never used to be a sci-fi fan until I met my wife and she introduced me to the genre, one of the first things being Stargate. When I watched this film I fell in love with the characters and the storyline; Jack O'Neill being the kamikaze leader, Daniel Jackson being the geek and all the other characters that we meet such as Skara and Sharay uniting against a common enemy (Ra) a Gh'ould and 'false god'. It sparks the imagination of space travel in a unique way as well as showing the solidarity of human kind and the possibility of other life being out there. It is a great film to watch and the first film that started the series of Stargate; 10 seasons and a final 2 films as well as 2 separate series.

Great film worth a watch if you want to get into SG1 which follows on from it, but be warned they change the plot of the film slightly in sg1. Only grumble is the cheap box

It doesn't matter how many times I've seen the movie in the last 22 or so years, that first time they dial the gate makes me BEAM like crazy! :D
