Good ending for a *great* TV series, but just looking at it as a movie, it's only average
First up, Stargate SG-1 in my opinion was one of the best TV series ever! The movie does a good job of tying up all the loose ends and the performances of the cast are as good as we have come to expect of a cast that has lived these characters' roles for up to 10 years.
Having said that, the movie does exactly what was intended - closure - and nothing more. Since this is a movie and not a TV series, I rate it as such and if I look at it as a movie, it is an average science fiction movies. The special effects are good, but every average science fiction movie has good special effects these days.
The story is actually not that innovative (*over and beyond* what we know from the TV series) and somehow there isn't a great deal of suspense developing anywhere through the movie. It never gets boring, but at the same time, it feels a bit like a re-union, kind of a "let's have a fun movie for old time's sake" movie.
The ending scene is also a bit cheesy.
Note: 6 is not a *bad* rating in my books (can check my other ratings) - it is slightly above average.
