Title: Gods Of Egypt

Rating: 3/5

Genre: Action

 

Awards nominated for: Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Gerard Butler), Worst Screen Combo, Worst Director (Alex Proyas), and Worst Screenplay.

 

Summary: Egypt is plunged into darkness when King Osiris is brutally murdered and overthrown by his brother Set (Gerard Butler). Hoping to save the love of his life, a defiant mortal named Bek (Brenton Thwaites) forms an unlikely alliance with the God Horus (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) in an attempt to save Egypt from peril, and get the girl.

Who would love it: Anyone who loves Egyptian mythology and wants to see their favorite monsters and heros come to life.

 

Why:  The movie holds true to most, if not all, of the character descriptions of the gods and heroes. The portrayal of the myths is well done and any mythology fan will enjoy seeing them on screen.

 

Who would hate it: Anyone who hates horribly done CGI and cringe-worthy dialogue.

 

Why: The CGI action scenes in this movie are extremely loud yet boring. They are choreographed with beautifully animated but poorly timed punches and stabs. The actors can hardly be blamed for the words they were given, so the writers must be held accountable. The script ranges from pitiful at best to cringe-worthy at worst.
