Adam C (es) wrote: Early 70s Exploitation film that is filled with action, suspense and spawns a new type of hero in a post Civil Rights era. Director Jack Hill was known for a lot of these movies, and this is his crowning achievement. Pam Grier is full of sexiness and attitude as she breathes life into Foxy Brown and helped establish her as the first female African-American hero in film. This film doesn't skip a beat as it is action packed with great fight scenes, clever escapes and sneaky undercover tactics, all with a musical score that rivals 'Shaft.' Look for Captain Spaulding himself, Sid Haig, in a very late scene in the film.

It's clear that he made this film exactly how he wanted it to be; drenched in his own philosophy and both on-screen and off screen personality. When it's done you are smacked back in your chair by the power of it.

The premise of the original film revolves around an obscure Egyptologist named Dr. Daniel Jackson (James Spader) being recruited by the US Air Force to explore a planet with a team led by Col. Jack O'Neil (Kurt Russell) with the help of a teleportation device known as the Stargate, where they venture into a world resembling Ancient Egypt and later must stop an alien overlord masquerading as the Egyptian Sun God Ra (Jaye Davidson) from destroying the planet and possibly invade Earth.The premise alone is worth a good look with the visuals the element that will suck you in. The atmosphere of the planet really captures the look and feel of Ancient Egypt (to the point where all of the characters residing there speak the Egyptian language) while the special effects look magmificent: The awe of the Stargate opening up, the alien technology of Ra's arsenal, and more.David Arnold's soundtrack is a great compliment to the film, providing the scale needed for the film.Despite all of the pros, the film is not without its cons: The script being the most noticeable. The script (in my opinion, of course) is so poorly written that I had to skip scenes, which in turn, nearly ruins the acting, with barely any character development to be found, it id understandable to me why many critics were against this film. That and the hit-or-miss direction which I didn't mind personally.Overall, even as a fan of the TV show Stargate SG-1, I think this film is flawed. The premise is interesting, the visuals are stunning, and the music brings a lovely touch, the direction is alright (not really a hinderance), but the screenplay is poorly written, bad dialogue, with hit-or-miss acting and barely any character development in return. This is where the TV show Stargate SG-1 addresses these flaws. To me, whether you're a fan or not, despite all the flaws, it is a fun ride as a popcorn film.

The humor is intellectual, with interesting British dialogs without slangs or complications, and full of funny expressions.Paul Bettany has a number of subtle facial/body expression that are just the right spice for the tone of the movie. Although I always find it difficult to accept Kristen Dunst has playing a star, she's more suited as an athletic star and perfect as Paul Bettany's opposite, bringing spunk like she can easily do.The setting of the movie is quite interesting, and the shots beautiful. More over, the story has a full figure, and is peppered with interesting details. You can feel the English fever for Wimbledon, and the soundtrack is quite appropriate.Only a few things mar this beauty. First, most court commentators sound like their reading their script, especially McEnroe and Evert. Second, the tennis itself, while well edited, shows flaws from time to time.That being said, it is my favorite romantic comedy because it has everything and does it all right just like I want it.A must see.
