In the film, the father of Osiris and Set is referred to as Ra, but in Egyptian Mythology, it is in fact Geb. See more »
There are several technological anachronisms that do not fit the primitive Egyptian setting. This movie is not set in history, it is set in mythology in a fantasy imagining of an Egypt that never was. See more »
Gods of Egypt was directed by Alex Proyas, the very same director that also brought us movies like The Crow, Dark City and I, Robot. While I liked at least two of those movies, I think Proyas has gone completely insane this time.
Gods of Egypt is without a doubt, no matter how you approach it, one of the biggest turds of 2016 (bold statement). It is so dreadful that it looks like a spoof. It is so unintentionally bad in every possible way. It is actually physically impossible to mention all the things that sucked. So let us forget all about the shameless whitewashing, terrible CGI, cheesy plot, bad direction and utterly horrid and soulless depiction of Egyptian mythology and move straight to the fact that it less engaging than Meet the Spartans. It feels like a mature-themed movie for very small children, even aiming at a target audience younger than ten. But Proyas was unaware of this and boldly marketed it as fantasy for an adult audience.
In the end, this movie should be graded one or maybe two out of ten. It is really, really bad. It is just so awful that it could have been directed by Tommy Wiseau or Uwe Boll. Enough said. Proyas should be ashamed of this garbage.
