Alex Proyas" Gods of Egypt (2016) reminds me so much of an Egyptian styled Percy Jackson in a good way. I really liked the trailer, the action scenes, the scale of creatures and terrain. The only thing I did not like was the "battle armor" between the Gods Set and Horus looked a little cheesy with the graphics/gold looking too shiny. Gods of Egypt is getting a lot of trash talk for having a mostly-white cast in an Egyptian movie, you can judge that for yourself. Gods of Egypt has an excellent cast including Gerard Butler, Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Rufus Sewell.
Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. With the survival of mankind hanging in the balance, an unexpected hero takes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. With only a handful of heroic rebels opposing Set’s savage rule, Bek (Brenton Thwaites), a bold and defiant mortal, enlists the aid of powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against the evil overlord. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen take them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the spectacular final confrontation.
