In Thoth's Library where Horus assaults Thoth, all of the Thoth's doppelgangers draw their swords with their left hand. For some reason, the editor chose to then flip the video to show Thoth holding the sword in his right hand for the next cut. However, all of the doppelgangers are holding their sword in the left hand in all of the remaining shots. You can also follow how the fern (along with everything else) jumps from left to right and back again on the table in this scene. See more »
After reading the reviews, I thought I was going to waste my time, but...
My expectations were clouded by other reviews because there were so much downsizing this movie, I even postpone my trip to the theater to see if this was a razor's edge or if it was dull as a old beat up sword. Long story short, I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. The storyline was very well put together. A lot of thought went into this movie and that includes the 3D and special effects. I remember reading about the Gods when I was very young. My parents brought home books that told stories of Gods and Goddesses. So naturally, I was all hyped up about this movie. I can say with this is one of those guilty pleasures of a movie and I plan on watching again and again. I really enjoyed this movie. I am in hopes that this movie will have a sequel with the same level of intelligence, stamina, 3D and special effects to bring the characters to life on the big screen. I gave it an 8 because there were a few places where the story sort of got off track, but not a deal breaker in my book. If you enjoy fantasy and have a thing for Egypt, then this movie may be right up your alley. Just one question, when is the blu-ray going to be released. Sign me up.
