Where we talk about movies & TV-shows

When ever Hollywood makes a film about Egyptian Gods I tend to get a little skeptical, because they do have a tendency to absolutely murder it and not in a good way. Some films are just pure horrible and some are just good because of the special effects and perhaps some of the storyline. “Gods of Egypt” was no exception.

“Gods of Egypt” is about the God Horus and his rightful place being THE king of Egypt and guiding his people. But his uncle Set got other plans. He want the crown for king of Egypt, but Set isn’t exactly the just full king Egypt need. He enslaves the people and killing Gods just to get what he want – to live forever without being able to be killed. And only man or more likely, God, can save Egypt from Set, and that happens to be Horus. But he is hiding in his fathers grave chamber without his eyes, but one theif named Bek have taken on of them back and willing to give it back for one favor – to bring his beloved back from the dead.

Horus and Bek have to trust each other and journey together to take out vengeance and take Egypt back from Set. Horus can learn a thing or two from the simple thief Bek, example how to treat the humans like equal and stop being so lazy, self loving and selfish. It’s a miss match but oh boy do these two boys really have to trust each other when  Set is trying to destroy them while they are trying to take back Egypt.

“Gods of Egypt” started out very well with a good story, it’s a charming film but what rules the film is the special effects. They got some pretty cool ones. Nothing wrong with the story line and casting was high level actors who did a semi job. “Gods of Egypt” is a cool adaption over all about the Gods in ancient Egypt that are mostly a mystery.

Actors: Brenton Thwaites, Courtney Eaton, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Elodie Yung, Rachael Blake, Chadwick Boseman, Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush and many more.
