James Spader admitted that he did the film for the money, as he found the script to be awful. He said, "Acting, for me, is a passion, but it's also a job, and I've always approached it as such. I have a certain manual-labourist view of acting. There's no shame in taking a film because you need some fucking money." See more »
When Air Force personnel leave O'Neil's house in their government vehicle with government license plates, the reflection of a California license plate is seen in the rear window (it was laying flat on the rear shelf behind the rear passengers seats). This is presumably the car's real-world license plate. 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.
