Just watched the trailer, not impressed.

One of the first lines is: "Something went wrong with the gate, the rest of our team didn't come through." Or something to that effect. So I get the impression these youngsters are there in some official capacity. So let me get this straight: a stargate is discovered, and a bunch of teenagers or early-20-somethings are the ones sent to investigate? And even better: a bunch of whiny teenagers. Stupid, stupid, stupid..... :roll:

Looks like something designed to appeal to the kids, much like that Twilight crap.

Definite DVD or satellite/cable fare. :)

Reminds me a bit of Tunnel in the Sky by Heinlein.
