Gods of Egypt Review

Ryan Dolby February 25, 2016

Should be called Transformers of Egypt or Clash of the Titans 3.

I don’t even know where to begin when talking about this terrible film. This film already stole 2 hours of my life that I’m never getting back, therefore this review is not going to be particularly long.

First- The CGI us atrocious. So many special effects are laughably bad. My favorite is when Bek is trying to get where the gold is stored and swing from a rope into the bin that has all the gold. (You’ll know it when you see it) Also the fact that Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau turn into mecha gods that battle each other. This literally good be a prequel to the transformer films. There’s also the god of wrath who pumps himself up to gigantic size. Speaking of size it’s jarring that the gods are larger than humans. It worked for films like Lord of the Rings, but here it is just awkward. The action goes from frantic jump cuts to over use of slowmo in seconds.

Second- The script is weak and riddled with cliches. Any problem the characters get in is easily fixed by movie magic. There are no rules for the characters in this world. They can go anywhere and do anything that gets them to the end of the movie. Also the amount of cheese is strong in the dialogue. Not a single joke landed for me.

Lastly- The only character that is slightly entertaining is Chadwick Boseman. He’s in the movie just a little bit shorter than Gerard Butler. Whoever is Gerard Butler’s agent needs to be fired. Every other character in this film is just going through the motions. That’s not even mention the fact that the cast is predominately white in a film set in Egypt.

Please don’t waste your precious time on this awful movie. Guarantee this will be the first box office bomb this year!
