The sci-fi epic Stargate suffers immensely on DVD due to an antiquated two-sided approach, the lack of significant bonus features, and a poor visual transfer. One of the early releases of the format, this disc splits the film onto two sides, which ruins the flow of the story. Extras include the intriguing original theatrical and teaser trailers along with a rather limited scene selection menu. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are also available. The disc features a nice cast and crew section containing well-written biographies and film highlights for Kurt Russell, James Spader, Jaye Davidson, other actors, and the key members of the crew. A few brief pages of production notes also appear here. Unfortunately, all of this information is in an extremely small font and nearly unreadable, especially on smaller television screens. While Stargate features impressive special effects, the images on this 2.35:1 nonanamorphic transfer are grainy and lacking in clarity. The black levels are poor, and the colors are devoid of the brightness necessary for this film. On the other hand, the 5.1-channel Dolby Digital audio track makes excellent use of the surrounds, especially during the arrival of Ra's ship. The disc also includes a 2.0-channel Dolby Surround audio track.

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 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.

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.
