Gods of Egypt

Good grief.

I’m struggling to find one thing I liked about this. Apart from that it mercifully came to an end.

It has a 12A certificate, yet the script sounded like it was aimed at 5 year olds, with some pretty poor delivery and accents from several of the major characters. I didn’t see too many Egyptian-looking people in the cast either, so I can only assume that most of the $140 million dollar budget went on getting big names rather than on the special effects. Actually, I should call them just effects, because special they ain’t. I think I could have done better with a fat crayon and some sugar paper.

Please do not turn this into a franchise. My eyes couldn’t stand it.

(I’m leaving the German trailer here, because it makes it slightly more fun to watch. Even if you don’t understand.)
