Such a Shame...By CueBall (1 review) from Wallasey , 25 Feb 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]Ok, this being the culmination of a series spanning 10 seasons (the longest running si-fi show ever!) i have to admit i was expecting a little more.
Don't get me wrong, it was everything we where promised, the Ori storyline is wrapped up neatly, there was the unexpected twist (replicators AGAIN!!) and the few loose ends will be tied up in continuum i am sure, but something just wasn't right. At a minimum it would have been nice to have an appearance from Jack/ R.D.A. but alas, it was not to be.
This is more than worth a watch for anyone who is, or ever was, a fan of Stargate SG1, but lets just hope the final installment offers a little more in the way of finality. There are so many issues in this show going back seasons that need resolving and questions that need answering (Jack & Sam, will they? wont they?), and they just don't bother with it in Ark of Truth.
But for now be happy, they done good again.

Best viewed after the TV series...By Shmikes (6 reviews) , 06 Jun 2013This is a good Stargate story, but it probably helps to have seen the preceeding TV season(s) before watching this. I hadn't seen much of the show beyond season 6, and not for a while either. The film appears to essentialy be a finale for the main story arc of the previous season (10, I think) - so if you haven't seen the last TV season, you're jumping in on a story already in progress. In addition, there must have been some key cast changes in the previous TV seasons - which means you're also dealing with different characters if you've not kept up with the TV show. Having said that, despite the central macguffin being a bit hard to grasp, it's still a good Stargate story, and the humor and tone from the TV series is still present. Not much actual Stargating going on though! Interesting to see a number of faces from other sci-fi series in this film as well. One for the fans I would say. So
Stargate, Ark of Truth.By thecuckoo (136 reviews) , 18 May 2012If you liked Stargate and are a fan you will love this.
It has all the usual some new faces and some old ones, new worlds and alien human looking species, replicaters, shoot outs, fights, and so on.
Where is O'Neil?By Saxacat (14 reviews) , 15 Nov 2011A good storyline and enjoyable romp; but it does suffer from a missing Jack O'Neil. probably one just for existing Stargate fans.
Timeslip ConsortiumBy a customer , 25 Jun 2011I cannot overestimate my devotion to Stargate. Initially, Kurt Russel in the original film. Disappointment short lived when MacGyver star Richard Dean Anderson filled Russel's boots.
Yet again disappointment short lived/non-existed due to Anderson's non-appearance in Ark Of Truth.
Michael Shank's true to form Stargate SG1 professor & trooper kept me glued to my seat with my eyes fixed to the large screen as Dr Daniel Jackson finally hooked up with Vala Mal Doran (aka Claudia Black).
Where are you, O'Neil?By a customer from Scotland , 21 Mar 2011I am a keen Stargate fan and thoroughly enjoy the series. My favourite character is probably Til'c but the ensemble is what makes the show. However, Once Richard Dean Anderson left the show that ensemble never really clicked again. The new additions Browder and Black are okay but the magic was gone. This movie is enjoyable, well made and has excellent special effects and I recommend it but it would have been much better with the original cast.
