Gods of Egypt

Egyptian god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is blinded by his uncle Set (Gerard Butler) and cast into exile; Meanwhile, mortal Bek (Brenton Thwaites) loses the love of his life, Zaya (Courtney Eaton). In an effort to bring Zaya back from the dead Bek teams up with Horus to bend the hands of fate, overthrow Set and return order to Egypt, but are they too late?godsofegypt An ambitiously large film for Director Alex Proyas, this CGI nightmare mixed with hokey dialogue and thin creativity leave a lot to be desired plot wise and visually, all the while, Marco Beltrami’s bombastic score does little to distract from the predictably flat adventure on the screen. Interestingly, converted to 3D, this is one adventure that won’t be seen in its 3D form on the big screen here in the states, perhaps a studio move to cut losses? Pass, maybe a rental some day far from now. Gods of Egypt is rated PG-13.
