An underdeveloped Rambo with a death wish (brought on by the
accidental death of his son) joins forces with a clumsy offshoot
of the Indiana Jones type to travel through an Egyptian stargate
to the unexplored side of the universe where they find extras
from the Ten Commandments slaving away for a demented E.T.
Some nice effects. Good performance by Viveca Lindfors despite
a weak script. James Spader and Kurt Russell don't come off as
well. Maybe because their on-screen time was longer. Jaye
Davidson, portraying Ra (the human alien), looks exceptionally
regal with his royal gait and his head held high. And, my, how
he flashes the whites of his eyes.
