After an enjoyable afternoon at the cinema, I was quite surprised to read that 'Gods of Egypt' is a lemon. Well, let me contradict the trend by saying how much I enjoyed it. There were several points working in its favour in my mind. 1. The mythology of the golden age of Egypt, when the Gods lived among mortals; 2. Some pretty cool special effects; 3. Darn good looking eye candy and 4. Fond memories of the Stargate movie and TV series.
We go to the movies for entertainment and escapism and in my mind, Gods of Egypt met these criteria perfectly.
Have you ever read ancient Egyptian texts and wondered what their Gods would look like and how they would behave towards the commoners? I have always had a fascination for this. Whereas in Stargate, the powers that appeared magical were mostly due to technological superiority, here it is interpreted in a more traditional sense.
So, I recommend going in with an open mind and you might find that you really enjoy it like I did.
