Having watched "The Ark of Truth" and read many of the other reviews here on Amazon, I can't help but wonder what the people who didn't like it were expecting; A cameo appearance by Elvis Presley? The secret of transmuting Lead into Gold?

Some people have complained that it wasn't a 'Film,' but merely two episodes of SG-1 that were shown back to back. But even though they could have easily replaced two of the `filler' episodes in series ten, they were still two of the best episodes ever made.

We might quibble about being charged an extra ten or fifteen pounds to see the end of the Ori story line, but I can't see how this could ever be a basis for disliking the film itself. And whilst at least one person has complained that you need to have watched most of SG-1 to really know what's happening, how could anyone `skip to the end' like this and not feel as if they didn't know what the heck was going on?

Whether it's actually the last two episodes of SG-1 or not, this film was made for the hardcore fans who were deeply engrossed in the story, not the uninterested people who just happened to flick past it one night on the `Sci-Fi' channel.

At this point in a review of course, I would normally go into explicit detail about the ethical issues that SG-1 deal with, the incredible writing, the wonderful acting and the spectacular (but never gratuitous) special effects. But as far as this film is concerned though, I honestly don't feel there's any need.

If you loved the depth and soul of 'Stargate SG-1,' were moved by the intelligent and emotional storylines and watched it for something other than `The cool explosions and the bright pretty colours.' If you understand what I mean when I use words like Replicators and Asgard, Ancients and Ori, Doci, Priors, Jaffa and Shol'va. If you honestly understood SG-1 and felt gutted when the tenth series simply tailed off at the end, then I can almost guarantee that you will love this film.

After ten years of the show, fans of Stargate SG-1 were left with the ultimately disappointing episode `Unending' to finish the 10th season on. If people didn't know that this movie was being made to tie up the plot lines from the Ori story arc then there would've been outrage.
So, with a lot of story threads to draw together we are given `The Ark Of Truth' to conclude the adventure.
The story basically centres around the location of an Alteran artefact that may be the key to stopping the armies of the Ori. Daniel, possessed by the spirit of Merlin, managed to send a weapon back to the Ori home galaxy designed to destroy ascended beings in season ten, but the armies of the Ori are still there, carrying out the crusade in the name of their gods.
With Adria ascending in `Dominion' we also have the problem of an Ori who has managed to reach the same level of existence as the Ancients.
So, with the army now on it's way to Earth, SG-1 - led by Cam Mitchell, has to take the Odyssey through the hyper-gate back to the Ori galaxy and find the Ark as it is the only weapon capable of stopping the Priors in their tracks.
The plot itself is typically formulaic SG-1 stuff with no real surprises for fans of the show. There are some delightful nods to technology that we see in later seasons of the show, the prototype DHD and the original idea for the stargates are done rather tongue-in-cheek but good nonetheless.
The banter between the members of SG-1 is up to it's usual standard, a great speech for Teal'c when he talks about killing in the name of false gods and the scene with Cam and Sam at the end did make me smile.

This film did exactly what i wanted it to do!
Tied up the ori storyline and continued to provide the kind of excitement and drama in the unique stargate way.
However i see this film as testing the water to see if people like it or not and the new film after this one - continuum looks ever better and also has the added bonus of including a certain Richard Dean Anderson! more than enough reason to look forward to the next movie.
So in conlcusion a great end to the storyline but so much more to look forward to in the future.

The Ark of Truth was clearly made to tie up the loose ends that were left when Stargate SG-1 finished with Season 10. For avid SG-1 fans this is the ending that Season 10 was missing and which needed to be told to satisfy the appetites of those who were robbed of their last meal after a decade of following the exploits of SG-1.

The Ark Of Truth lives up the hype of fans hoping for an epic end to the storyline that drove the show's final two seasons. Indeed, The Ark Of Truth proves to be both an epic and fitting end to the Ori storyline. There were no major surprises, but it was carried off very well. In the end it felt more like an extended episode of Stargate SG-1 than a blockbuster movie in its own right but as an SG-1 fan I came away happy.

For those unfamiliar with the SG-1 series I would advise holding off until you have seen at least season 9 and 10 of Stargate SG-1 before embarking on The Ark of Truth as you may otherwise find yourself completely baffled as to who is who and what is going on.
