Directed by Alex Proyas. With Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Chadwick Boseman. Mortal hero Bek teams with the god Horus in an alliance against Set, the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.
Much maligned for it’s casting decisions, this turned out to be a much deeper movie than I was expecting. Sure, all the Egyptian gods were played by mostly white folks (Black Panther aside), but this is a solid science fiction film with supernatural elements. It’s free on TUBI right now if you can stomach the 20+ commercials that play during a two hour movie.
