    Gods of Egypt

    Interesting director + low score means I'm in for something imaginative, unique, sincere, that offends the status quo. And this is no different.

    Welcome to an Alex Proyas film (Dark City, I Robot, Knowing) with Letterboxd average below 2. What higher recommendation could there be?!
