STARGATE (Theatrical Release USA 1994)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

taps the acting skills of Erick Averi, James Spader, and Kurt Russell to tell its story. Kirk Russell seems to have difficulty getting into his character in this film, but as he settles in he becomes a good choice for his role as Colonel Jonathan O’Neil. The sets are spectacular and the costumes are well done. It is no Star Wars, by any means, but still makes a good sci fi watch for some afternoon ‘kill’ time.


Wormholes, Egyptology, Pyramids, and ancient hieroglyphs all link together to open an ancient stargate.
