Gods of Egypt (2016)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
I know there is some reviews out there that aren’t too happy about the casting but I simply loved this movie :D. The film told me a story that kept me very entertained, captivated and it is set in Egypt! This is a more fantasy version of the legends/myths/reality and that is why I think it works 🙂 . There is a decent cast in this movie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerald Butler, Chadwick Boseman and so on) and the CGI is pretty good. At first it is odd to see the gods “larger” than others but that fades pretty quickly and you are engrossed in the tale. I loved the armor of the gods and that their blood is gold. There are a few shocks in this tale and the ending makes me want a sequel 😛 . The setting of the world looked good and the battle scenes were impressive enough 🙂 . I liked Hathor’s (Elodie Yung) power and her scene with the demons (won’t spoil). Also I liked the beginning scene (where all goes wrong 😛 ) and the scenes with the underworld. Surprisingly there is some humour in this movie too and parts are a little cheesy 😛 . A great action / Egypt movie that I recommend! Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
