Stargate: The Ark of Truth ★★ ½ 2008

Direct-to-video movie finishes off most of the story left dangling when “Stargate: SG-1” ended its 10th TV season. In this adventure (think “Raiders of the Lost Ark” with some “Terminator” thrown in), Daniel Jackson, Teal'c, and Vala are continuing their planetary search for the Merlin weapon that will defeat the fanatical Ori before they have a chance to attack Earth. Meanwhile, Mitchell and Sam are aboard the Odyssey dealing with a double-crossing official, Ori motherships, and a lot of replicators. A nice bonus for fans of the series. 102m/C DVD .
