The Ark of Truth in scope and quality. I like how there are no dangling plot threads left to weave other than eliminating Ba’al, so the story can go wild. I have only one quibbles. Jack is in far too little of the story. He has about fifteen minutes of screen time all together. Come on, it is the last time the band is going to play together. Surely Richard Dean Anderson’s semi-retirement could have been suspended for an entire film. Otherwise, Continuum is great. The pacing is much better than in The Ark of Truth. all the running storylines are equally interesting. Although some of the cameos of characters like Apophis and Yu are not as meaningful as others, it is still fun to see all these guys and gals again. Especially Hammond. This was Don S. Davis’ final acting appearance before his death. He pased on a month prior to
’s release, in fact.
Continuum is a worthy conclusion to the Stargate SG-1 chapter of the Stargate Universe. It brings back familiar faces and concepts from the series without retreading old ground. The story feels fresh. The location ahots are impressive, as are the CGI effects. Our heroes look great in HD. They ride off into the sunset in style.
