Trivia

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 (1997), which Lexa Doig, who plays Dr. Marta Pena, was a recurring cast member of in the last two seasons of the series' run.

Goofs

Dr. Helm 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 »

inane bit of cinema
13 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone forgot to write a script for this movie. It really doesn't appear to have a script. It looks more like a bunch of people getting together and just filming scenes as they go along, much like the old TV fantasy series like Xena. Lots of conflict and some action, but no clear content. Suffice to say, there is a quest for ancient artifacts, and the ancient idol, Ba'al is involved. We even see Ba'al as malformed clouds during the movie. Not a bad visual. But to call it confusing is to be generous. This movie has nothing really going for it, other than a few characters who are reasonably likable. We also have a very trite villain, however. Not sure what the audience for this would be. Perhaps 12 year olds, but even they would want some sort of story. There just isn't a story here.
