    The film, pun fully intended, is an ungodly mess. What could have been an adventurous buddy comedy, an old-fashioned, Ben-Hur style epic, or a knowingly deranged B-movie ends up being an early contender for the worst film of the year. Too bad. Those trailers looked good.

  • Interestingly, there a handful of jokes are scattered throughout the script. Some cheeky lines delivered deadpan-style could have livened things up greatly if the writers were more generous with it. If kitsch mythology and a swords-and-sandals clad Butler along with various bosomy lasses float your boat, it’s passable.

    Gerard/Nikolaj fans might lap this one up. The rest of us have better things to do. Like, have faith that there won’t be a sequel to this.

  • While you may admire the physical magnificence of the pyrotechnics on display, there’s little that can take your breath away. This is a tiresome exercise at regaining immortality and the gamey nature of the pursuit only makes it worse.

    Gods Of Egypt stages some of the most spectacular visual effects seen in recent years. It is a simple morality tale well told and executed with enormous breadth and vision. Leave aside all the other films this week.Rush to see Gods Of Egypt.It’s a  feast for the senses.It’s the  Baap of Baahubali.

    Watch Gods of Egypt to witness the notions of an infallible, omnipotent God being destroyed. Watch it for the beauty and grace of Hathor. Watch it for the disarming diatribe between Horus and Bek, and the transformation of their disdain into friendship. But most of all, watch it to bring back the cynic in you, from the dark side, into the light.

  • Gerard Butler after playing the king of Sparta in 300 , plays Set with teeth-gnashing villainy; he also has the legs and shoulders to carry off little skirts. Geoffrey Rush is the venerable Ra, flying in his sun chariot and sending lightning bolts to quell the serpent of chaos. Chadwick Boseman plays the god of wisdom Thoth, while Rufus Sewell (Murdoch from Dark City ) is Urshu.

  • Alex Proyas’s Gods of Egypt is a deeply stylish and deeply hollow fantasy adventure in which it is hoped that the spectacular visual effects will blind audiences to the absence of a credible storyline.

  • This is definitely not even in the so-bad-it’s-good territory, but with just a tiny extra push into the ridiculous, this 127-minute slog could have been made into a caustic 90-minute satire.
