While SG-1 attends the execution of Baal, the last of the Goauld System Lords, Tealc and Vala inexplicably disappear into thin air. Carter, Daniel and Mitchell race back to a world where history has been changed: the Stargate program has been erased from the timeline. The remaining SG-1 members must find the Stargate and set things right before they world is enslaved by the Goauld.
If Continuum, the second feature length, made-for-DVD film spun off from the long-running Stargate SG-1 television series, marks the end of this wing of the franchise--and it is hardly a certainty, given the show’s Lazarus-like history--then all involved, including the viewer, should be well satisfied. Continuum commingles all the elements that have made Stargate so eminently watchable over the years, including engaging characters and storyline, plenty of action, impressive sets, and first-rate special effects. This time the whole gang is on hand, as the most recent SG-1 contigent (Ben Browder as fearless leader Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell, Amanda Tapping as the brainy Lt. Col. Samantha Carter, Christopher Judge as the implacable alien Teal’c, Michael Shanks as the ever-resourceful Dr. Daniel Jackson, and Claudia Black as the irreverent, motor-mouthed Vala) is joined by characters whose roles had been reduced or eliminated along the way; principal among the latter is Richard Dean Anderson, whose Major General Jack O’Neill makes a welcome return after sitting out The Ark of Truth, the first post-series film (both of Stargate Command’s head honchos, played by Beau Bridges and the late Don S. Davis, are also back). The villain is familiar as well: Ba’al (Cliff Simon), the last of the "Goa’uld system lords," who’s scheduled to be executed--or, more specifically, "extracted," whereby the bad mojo inside him will be exorcised. Things don’t quite go as planned, of course. Ba’al has managed to manipulate time, creating a situation where Mitchell, Jackson, and Carter find themselves caught in a paradox, an alternate timeline in which the Stargate program never even existed, making it easy for the bad guy and his gigantic space brigade to launch an all-out attack on Earth (though long-threatened throughout the series, such an invasion never actually happened until now). Our heroes’ intrepid efforts to thwart Ba’al’s dastardly scheme take them from the Arctic (for real) to the cockpits of F-15 jets and even the hold of a 1930s cargo ship (built specially for the occasion). All this, and Browder portraying his own grandfather too? Yo, Stargate: Continuum rocks! --Sam Graham

It was a real treat seeing many of the characters from the regular series and brought a nice sense of closure to an excellent, long running series.
Highly recommended for Stargate SG-1 fans!
Here the SG-1 team returns to Earth on the heels of mysterious circumstances to find that Earth as they know it has changed in ways both subtle and dramatic. Although the people they should know, but don't, believe them, they are completely unwilling to take any action to set things "right" ... in fact quite the opposite. The most damaging change is the lack of a Stargate program, and when the System Lords show up to begin their bombardment of Earth, it becomes obvious to everyone that they should have paid more attention to the returning SG-1 members!
The blu-ray presentation is beautiful ... reference quality. Sound and effects are at the typical blu-ray level of magnificent. Obviously, I have not the slightest technical quibble with this presentation.
As the "Star Trek: TNG" finale reminded us, all good things must come to an end. If this is the last Stargate story we see from our beloved original cast, it was a satisfying and fitting curtain call.
