Goofs

While walking in the swamp, all three characters have the water covering the same length of their legs (below their knees). Since Horus and Hathor are way taller than Bek, the later should be sunk at least at waist height to accurately match their sizes. See more »

Bad on all levels
5 April 2020 | by gamerz-18042See all my reviews

The CGI basically looks like a PC game. The acting is ok, and the storyline would be reasonable if it weren't for the ridiculous over the top, and facepalm moments.
