Did You Know?


The storm god featured in, and also the title of, the movie Ba'al shares the name of a character who played a recurring villainous alien from the series Stargate: SG-1, which Lexa Doig, who plays Dr. Marta Pena, was a recurring cast member of in the last two seasons of the series' run. See more »


Dr. London refers to the items Dr. Stanford has as having been "...buried by Sumerian priests a thousand years ago..." Those would have to be pretty old priests: Sumer was absorbed into and succeeded by the Babylonian Empire around 1700 BCE, over 3700 years ago. See more »

deeply filled with errors
5 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yes, the film was a valiant attempt at making a movie. The 'Leutenant' at the beginning was wearing COrporal stripes AND LT. bars, AND NO epaulets. The aircraft were erroniously identified, the list goes on and on. Was this a good film? no. Would a bigger budget have fixed it? doubtful. Would different actors fix it? no. Would different directing or FX fixed it? Doubtful. Would it have been a good film if made in the US? no.

What is NOT noticed by one other reviewer (JoeB131) is that low budget films are made all the time. This is common. there are probably 10-20 made of this calibre for every blockbuster. Suck it up man.

Calling every film made in Canada cheesy is a national insult. There have been MANY blockbuster big budget films done in Canada, and many top TV series are filmed in Canada. The difference in the dollar offers producers a chance to make a lot more for the same budget.

Yes there was weak acting here, and there was some good work too. The specific work of Lexa Doig was certainly professional.

Don't let an obvious 'hater' make you think nonsense. OK, the film was low budget, it was weak, but some comments were a blatant slam and unwarranted.
