First of all, I’m cheap, okay. It has ancient civilization/mythology background, gods fight gods with fancy suits, and Gerard Butler, so I’m sold. (WHAT?!)
And I don’t care with all the controversy about there’s no black people in this movie, I don’t actually give a shit. I want to watch at least a great special effects movie since this should be the awesome ancient fantasy movie. But Gods of Egypt is soooooo fucked.
Let me tell you about the special effects, this movie looks like it could’ve been made in 2002. This movie was really bad! Like, on every technical level. The script was a mess, visually this movie is garbage with shitty CG and I literally laughing out loud in the theater, this movies is almost like you let George Lucas taking LSD and directing the prequel of star wars.
And Gods of Egypt is pure of fantasy,there’s no fucking Egypt here, historically speaking. With their large budgets I was expecting details history about ancient Gods, but no. They’re having a freaking original story and spinning off the history. It’s original, but stupid shit.
If you love to watch dumb shitty CG movies that contains lots of sex and boobs (you know, “I saw boobs, I pressed upvote”) just like low budget studio-produced porn movies, go ahead. Don’t set your expectations high, you’ll have fun.
