Gods Of Egypt (2016)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
09.26.16

Gods Of Egypt (2016) At first, this was an interesting movie. The ancient Gods of Egypt are in charge-and just as Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of GAME OF THRONES) is about to assume the throne from his father, Osiris (Bryan Brown of FX), Set (Gerard Butler) shows up. He kills the father, plucks out Horus' eyes after a battle, and assumes the throne-and claims the goddess Hathor (Elodie Yung of DAREDEVIL Season Two) as his wife. He says that now the only way into the afterlife is by paying for it, and so the humans are forced to work, building him monuments.

The main story concerns Bek, a human who is in love with servant girl Maya. The guy she works for, Urshu (Rufus Sewell) is evil, so when Bek and her try to run away he fires and arrow, which kills her. Bek finds the depressed Horus, who has taken cover in the Temple of Anubis-and begs for him to return her to life. It's possible-but he has to help Horus get his throne back. In fact, Berk has recovered one of Horus' eyes, which he gives him.

Visually, the movie is great-the Gods are all twice the size of the humans, which makes the humans look like Hobbits, and when the gods battle they transform into animalistic forms-Horus as a winged, hawk-headed creature and Set as a Reptilian beast. But after a while I felt like I was watching a video game and my interest waned. The worst thing, I think, is the casting of Gerard Butler (300) as Set-it simply doesn't work, particularly with the Scottish accent.

GODS OF EGYPT is my least favorite Alex Proyas (THE CROW, DARK CITY) movie
