Out of all of the memorable moments in "Stargate", the most clever and well-executed one was the switcharoo near the end when the transporter/elevator takes James Spader and his wife away from Ra and simultaneously decapitates Ra's guard and delivers the head to him/her back on the pyramid ship.

The stargate was inside the structure and protected by a forcefield that functioned very similarly to Earth's iris, preventing anyone from passing through.

 Stargate SG1 question (Ra) - Topic Ars OpenForum
Ra was the most powerful system lord and Anubis was kicked out of the council by Ra and the others hundreds/thousands of years prior to the movie/series.
Ra was destroyed by a naquida enhanced nuclear weapon, in another episode, humans manage to destroy an entire world with one once it starts a chain reaction with the naquida in the soil.
Since Ra never figured he would die he probably never laid out any sort of heir to the throne so they all were fighting to be the new Ra with the strongest one winning.

 Filmtracks: Stargate SG-1 (Joel Goldsmith/Arnold/Kiner)
Stargate SG-1: (Joel Goldsmith, David Arnold, Kevin Kiner, Richard Band, and Dennis McCarthy) It's easy to be skeptical whenever a television series follows a popular film, and especially a film that has a score that has risen to the status of "cult classic" in the years since its composer has become famous.
When the first Stargate SG-1 album came out, it was a surprise to many people who had enjoyed the film score, but were not familiar with the television show.
The opening titles are a great compilation of the original Stargate themes; though hasty, he managed to fit all three of Stargate's primary themes into a one minute cue.

The idea of the stargate itself was a great concept and Ra's guards looked menacing with their now-you-see-them-now-you-don't head gear.
Most noticeable was the shoddy job done on the morphing effects for the helmets on Ra's guards and for Ra himself, er, herself, er, whatever.
And Ra's hand-held brain-blender that he/she uses on one of her guards and on James Spader was a little silly.

STARGATE is about - duh - a stargate which is basically under armed guard; there is an equivalent stargate on a desert planet at the other end of the galaxy.

 Database of Snakes
An ancient Egyptian solar deity, also known as one of the Eyes of Ra, the title of an "avenger" god who is sent out specifically to lay waste to the enemies of Egypt and her gods.
In Stargate, he was such an evil god that his priests had punished him by locking him up in a sarcaphogus with a creature that ate him.
He is also known to have protected Ra during his travel through the underworld against attacks by Apophis and is named Lord of the Northern Sky in the Book of the Dead, which means he's responisble for stormy and cloudy weather.

 Review: Stargate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Ra, it seems, created human society on Earth and on this world as well as the stargates, and was displeased when the ancient Egyptians closed their side of the space/time corridor, confining him to one planet.
The first half of the film, which includes the setup, Jackson's intense struggle to break the stargate's code, the expedition to Ra's world, and humankind's first contact with an alien culture, is handled reasonably well.
Stargate is peppered with numerous minor faults, some of which - although not all - are easily forgiven.

Between the events of the film and television series Stargate SG-1, it was believed to be the only other planet the stargate could dial to.
In the ancient past, the Goa'uld Supreme System Lord Ra moved a number of ancient Egyptian people from Earth to Abydos via the stargate and forced them to mine naqahdah (Abydos is also the name of an ancient Egyptian city, and is possibly where those brought to the planet originated from).
The banished System Lord Anubis destroyed Abydos' stargate, the pyramid of Ra, and the surrounding human settlement with a superweapon built from five components ("Eyes") that had once belonged to various prominent System Lords.

 Story and Revelation, an essay by Bill Johnson
That the mineral the natives mine was used to create the stargate, but on Earth, there was a rebellion, so RA brought slaves to this world to continue its existence, outlawing writing so there could never be another rebellion, i.e.
Spader and RA talk, and we learn RA plans to send bomb back to Earth with mineral so it will ruin gate on Earth by generating a major explosion, and RA will be left undisturbed as a God.
Because it's not established that the stargate is inherently dangerous to humanity, what's at stake over the outcome of the story isn't made clear until late in the story.

Their fight for life against the ruler, Ra (Jaye Davidson), and even a love interest in the "other" world, the beautiful Sha'uri (Mili Avital) makes for exciting science fiction; if that is a genre that turns you on, go for it.
"Stargate" does not quite deserve to be panned (as it has been by many critics): at its best, it is an enthralling science-fiction mystery, and at its worst it is still an average action movie.
STARGATE is the story of an Egyptian artifact, that seems to have several symbols of the magical kind that connect into something else that most anyone can not figure out.

Carter has been experimenting with techniques to help her remember things left in her mind by Jolinar of Malkshur, a Goa'uld symbiote who recently possessed her body for a short time ("In the Line of Duty").
At their previous base of operations, the Tok'ra kept their Stargate within their facility (presumably underground), as seen in Carter's initial vision of the evacuation.
Before his defeat by the first Stargate team, Ra was the "Supreme System Lord," and therefore probably the most powerful Goa'uld in the galaxy ("Stargate" the movie).

 Stargate
They arrive on a desert world with cultural (and apparently supernatural) ties to Earth's ancient Egypt, where the sun god Ra (played by Jaye Davidson from The Crying Game) rules a population of slaves with armored minions and startlingly advanced technology.
After being warmly welcomed into the slave camp, the earthlings encourage and support a rebellion, and while Russell threatens to blow up the Stargate to prevent its use by enemy forces, the movie collapses into a senseless series of action scenes and grandiose explosions.
It's all pretty ridiculous, but Stargate found a large and appreciative audience, spawned a cable-TV series, and continues to attract science fiction fans who are more than willing to forgive its considerable faults.

 Filmtracks: Stargate (David Arnold)
Stargate: (David Arnold) By the early 1990s, young British artist David Arnold had scored exactly one feature film: Young Americans.
The overture suite and cue representing the first discovery of the stargate in Giza are easily the highlights of the album, with not only the whole power of the Sinfonia of London and Chameleon Arts Chorus, but a performance by a single female voice.
Much of the style that Arnold established in Stargate would mature in Independence Day and Godzilla before he returned to combine his pop music experience with his orchestral talents for his affiliation with the James Bond series in the late 1990s.

Well in egyptian mythos Ra was the Sun God and full control of light.
Well Ra is also generally represented as being in his chariot going across the sky, so I would assume that it would be his ship that would have the ability to cloak and not him literally.
So Ra, technologically, probably wasn't that advanced; as even in the movie (if you can consider this a fair comparison) he appeared to be nowhere nearly as advanced as the Go'uld we see in SG1.
