Kings Of Egypt [2016] ★½

 gods-of-egypt-poster“Please make it stop!” I kept shouting at the screen as I suffered through this endless CGI-driven crap-fest starring Gerard Butler as a merciless God who is ruling the once peaceful Egypt with an iron fist. Now it’s up to a mortal hero (Brendon Thwaites, clueless) to team up with Game of Thrones’ Nicolaj Coster-Waldau and save the day. Pretty straightforward stuff. And yet “Kings of Egypt” (better known as “Gods of Egypt” in more advanced countries) is a sham, with good actors (why Geoffrey Rush why?) using fancy costumes and heavy make-up to hide their shame. Well, you’re not fooling anyone. The God-awful dialogue perpetrated by two writers (yes it took 2 people to write this) did it for me. Butler shouting “kneel before me or die!” belongs in the “cliché” time capsule. This movie will probably haunt him (and us) for years. What a horrible horrible thing to witness!
