Gods of Egypt 

 

I am grateful my dad purchased Gods of Egypt on Blu-ray + Digital HD on Black Friday 2016. This movie was part of one of our guy movie nights. We usually watch action adventure movies rated PG or PG-13. Since the name of this is Gods of Egypt, then we can expect false gods and false worship. The way those things are handled in Gods of Egypt is very interesting.

The false gods in Gods of Egypt are shown as very vulnerable. They can bleed gold, and they can die. There is a lot of violence in Gods of Egypt. There is also gore. The blood seems toned down since it is golden. Gods of Egypt also contains a high volume of enticement to lust, and lack of attire. Sex outside of marriage is encouraged in Gods of Egypt. Marriage is even attacked - I mean literally and physically.

Rounding out the other bad content in Gods of Egypt is lying, stealing, and profanity. The storyline is surprisingly interesting. One false god (Osiris) is giving up power to his son (Horus). Another false god (Set) decides he wants to be king instead. So he kills his brother and takes the eyes of the would be king. A thief comes along years later and steals one of the eyes and gives it back to Horus.

The lead false god in Gods of Egypt is Ra. He is up in the sky in a ship battling a nasty worm creature that wants to come and destroy the Earth. He gives different tests to the different false gods. Each of them must figure out what their test is and pass. Osiris passes his test. Set fails his test. Finally at the end of the movie Horus learns what his is, and passes his.

There are some cool Prince of Persia moments in Gods of Egypt. The traps in the pyramids are interesting. I am not fond of the Sphinx character in Gods of Egypt. His riddle is pretty lame, and way too open ended since there are plenty of possible answers. The afterlife teachings in Gods of Egypt are way far out there. Like the size of the false gods being bigger than humans. They could also transform into weird creatures at will.

If you liked the Clash of the Titans movies then you may get into Gods of Egypt. Why? Because this franchise is like Clash of the Titans for ancient Egyptian religious beliefs. Does anyone still practice worship to the old Egyptian gods? I don't know. What I do know is Gods of Egypt is an action packed ride where the main character is on a journey of discovery.
