In 1928, in Egypt, a strange device is found by an expedition. In the present days, the outcast linguist Dr. Daniel Jackson is invited by a mysterious woman to decipher an ancient hieroglyph in a military facility. Soon he finds that the device was developed by an advanced civilization and opens a portal to teletransport to another planet. Dr. Jackson is invited to join a military team under the command of Colonel Jonathan 'Jack' O'Neil that will explore the new world. They find a land that recalls Egypt and humans in a primitive culture that worship and are slaves to Ra, the God of the Sun. But soon they discover the secret of the mysterious "stargate". Written by

Ra plans to send back the bomb with its power boosted 100 times, and expects this to end civilization on Earth. It's not said what the normal yield of the bomb is, but there is no reason for it to be enormous. A two megaton bomb boosted to two hundred would be no bigger than the biggest bombs already tested.
It would also explode underground and probably do little damage. But there is nothing to indicate that Ra knows where the Earth-based Stargate is, so that much is reasonable. 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.
