Trivia

Goofs

Horus says to Bek that Urshu is needed to get to the top of Seth's tower, then almost immediately leaps away to finish the climb by hand.

CORRECTION: Horus says that Bek needs Urshu in order to reach the top of the tower, not that they both do. In fact, Horus and Bek have to reach the top separately in order for their distraction plan to work against Set. See more »

Quotes

Bek: You really watched the world come into being?
Thoth: I don't lie.
Bek: Where were you watching it from, if nothing had been created yet?
Thoth: If I even attempted to explain, your brain would liquefy and run out of your ears.

Very entertaining, don't know why critics didn't like it
2 March 2016 | by bbbl67See all my reviews

It's a mythological movie, always liked mythological movies, and this one was no exception. I went into the movie not having read any of the critics reviews, and when I came home afterwards, I was surprised to see so many critics have bashed the movie. The only problem that they can cite is that this movie had too many white actors in it! This was never a problem in the past, The Clash of the Titans and the Immortals were similar mythological movies from just a few years ago, also with a mainly white cast and it was never even mentioned for them. Since this movie came out so soon after the 2016 Oscar awards ceremony, which was criticized heavily for not having any black actors or black-based films nominated, maybe this movie got unfairly caught up in the fad of the times?

Anyways, there's a lot to love about this film. Watch the depiction of the flat Earth, with a Sun being dragged around by Ra's chariot. They could've gone with a modern scientific depiction of the round Earth and the Sun, but this is mythology, they wanted to stay true to the mythological depiction, and so they did depict it like mythology has it. But their depiction is a lot of fun, it is sort of a retro-modern depiction.

I never felt the movie dragged at any point.
