Overview

This lucrative, elephantine-budgeted sci-fi opus paved the way for director Roland Emmerich's mega-hit Independence Day 1996. The story commences in Giza, Egypt, circa 1928, where an archaeological expedition unearths an ancient ring with cryptic hieroglyphs. The film then moves to the present day, where Egyptologist Daniel Jackson James Spader is busily trying to convince a group of skeptics that the pyramids were not built by man, but by an extraterrestrial force. After the lecture, a military man approaches him and offers him a job translating the said ring; its inscriptions actually constitute a map to a massive stargate or interstellar portal. The army sends over resident crackpot colonel Jack O'Neill Kurt Russell to travel through the stargate and see what's on the other side; Jackson accompanies him, and the two men turn up in a desert planet on the other side of the universe, with three moons in its sky. The world in question is ruled by Ra Jaye Davidson, a hermaphroditic Egyptian sun god, who oppresses hordes of slave workers. Jackson and O'Neill then join forces to help the said workers revolt against their oppressor.

    An excellent film which opened the way for the 10 year run of the TV series. Both Russell and Spader do an excellent job portraying their respective characters.

    Stargate

    Stargate is a fun science fiction adventure film starring Kurt Russell and James Spader. An ancient, circular, stone gate with mysterious hieroglyphs is discovered in Egypt. The American Air Force recruits an ancient languages expert to help decipher the markings. The linguist (Spader) succeeds and the stargate is activated. A team of soldiers led by an Air Force Colonel (Russell) enter the stargate and are transported thru a wormhole in the space-time continuum to a far away world that resembles Egypt. The linguist and the soldiers save that world and ours from the evil alien warlord. It's a fun adventure.

    Unforgettable and truewise

    After the symbolic hints of the first Star Wars Trilogy, Stargate was the real ''grand opening'' of the New Millennial thinking, exposed in the sci-fi. The ancient times with their mythological and religious knowledge, incl. the legends of the so-called ¿lost civilizations,¿ are no blubbery superstitions, but ¿cognition,¿ which requires ¿another¿ to science and theology ''deciphering'' of the historic and pre-historic data. Stargate was the best portrayal of this struggle for ¿alternative science.¿ Excellent plot, excellent play, and excellent cinematography! There is much to think of after seeing such a movie event.
