Goofs

Three pyramids were seen in the first landscape shot. However Osiris was supposed to be the first mythological pharaoh of Egypt. Moreover, the first pharaoh to have a perfectly shaped triangle for a pyramid was Sneferus, whose reign was estimated to be from around 2613 BC to 2589 BC, or the Fourth Age of the Old Kingdom.

not for me, low on everything I thought it should show
23 May 2016 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I saw the trailer of this flick just before the superman vs batman flick. It looked great and have seen Immortals (2011) which I really liked I was looking forward for another flick about the Gods of Egypt. Sadly it wasn't my thing at all. Not that I was bored or whatsoever but it was clearly made for everybody. No gore or nudity to see.

I mean, in the beginning there's a murder going on with stabbing, you can see the knife going in the flesh but no blood, when he wipes his knife clean there's no spot of blood to wipe. And we do have a love scene and the so-called queen is indeed undressed but it's all filmed without showing a thing.

Further the CGI used is really good but not that superb because sometimes you could easily spot the key used to fill in the picture. Also the Gods are shown on a strange way, some faces are correct with history but Ra sitting on a ship and stuff like that, just look at Egypt itself. Where is the dessert?

For me it was more a story like the old Sinbad flicks or even the Clash Of The Titans flick(s). An immortal helping 1 God to fight against his brother God and yes, there are monsters around to defeat.

So if you think it's truth to history it isn't, it's a pure fantasy flick.
