Goofs

The first time Ra makes an appearance he is sharpening his spear on an angled wheel used on a step-grinder. The step-grinder is a relatively modern machine; while not new it dates far less than 200 years ago, much less than the thousands of Egyptian mythology. See more »

Can't get any better for a mythological movie.
4 March 2016 | by sameulhasanSee all my reviews

Finally something that could entertain me in 2016. I don't know what the critics are about. This movie was really good. A bit of a farce and some of the animation could have been better. However still an excellent movie.

These actors appeared to be 100% invested in making this film work, and they got the job done, in my opinion.

I'm extremely impressed to see this excellent movie based on ancient Egypt that is certainly for me this movie has done justice for the money invested.

Critics are again all over the fact that predominantly white actors are playing Egyptians, oh come on! We pay to get entertain and trust me i was totally impressed.
