This goes back in time to the original finding of the stargate, and stars a character we all know lives and so cannot be in any danger at all ever.

This just comes across like short-episode fan fiction.

A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

An alternate energy generator is invented, and a test pilot goes through as a fail-safe.

It might have been good, but the perspective was awful and it amplified already-poor writing. The secondary perspective of hopping around in time was aggravating.

Young adults go on a vacation on Labor Day weekend, but their neighbor has an abduction story.

A government assassin learns he has been cloned by a rogue lab bent on raising an army of perfect soldiers.

A fair movie. It brings nothing new or interesting, and has generally uninspired writing and action. Thinking back on it, it does seem derivative of so many other movies.

A police officer almost dies in the course of duty, but is converted into a cyborg.

When it came out I was given the impression that it would be bad, especially compared to the original, but it was fair. Not good, but fair.
