The early pre-release screenings of the movie were disastrous. The percentage of the audience who liked the movie fell into the mid-30's, and executive producer Mario Kassar realized the main problem was that the plot made zero sense. His solution: have the Ra character's dialogue subtitled and made into information that presented a clear storyline. When these changes were made, the subsequent test screenings produced an overwhelming majority of positive reviews, and this carried the movie into becoming one of the surprise hits of fall 1994.

When the Earth team reaches the mining camp and scans the mineral, the readout comes back, "Quartz: primary element." Quartz is not an element, but a mineral compound, something a sophisticated mineral analyzer would probably be able to deduce. See more »
Stargate is a terrific movie that has produced 2 hit TV shows, conventions and fans from all over the world. This movie started it all. I found it in my Uncle's basement and decided to watch it. It has an interesting storyline tying in Ancient Egyptian Mythology to make it even more interesting. It's about a struggling archaeologist with strange ideas about the gods and rulers of Ancient Egypt. Only one person is willing to believe him, and recruits him for a translator. What they find is even more amazing than they expected.
It's a highly underrated movie, in my opinion it's better than most sci-fi movies and very interesting.
