Awesome movie with great plot! Seriously, people, why are your reviews so bad? Like my comment if you liked 'Gods of Egypt'.

Disappointing, though I knew it was widely panned before watching it. Normally I'm a sucker for fantasy/mythology, but I found the script silly. Visual effects were good at times. Fell asleep repeatedly.

Impressive visual effects. A full, well-written story.
Serious with grand drama and thankfully only a hint of puerile hijinks.
Gerard Butler- a mean bad boy.

Fantastic adventure with awesome special effects. Some big name actors in this (Rufus Sewell-currently in the TV show Victoria (Lord M), Gerard Butler, etc.) Full of action and some great one liners!

Thought it was a really silly movie. I knew not to expect much, but thought that with Butler in it, it would be a lot better than it was. Sometimes I wonder why decent to good actors allow themselves to be put into movies like this. It can't be because he read the script and thought it was something awesome or was going to be a big blockbuster, or win him some awards. Maybe it was just the money and he had a hangover when he accepted the part.

Besides the constant skin showing/sexual content, it was a very good and funny movie. Worth a watch.

Few know the whole story. From what I recall, it goes something like this... Before history began, Egypt was the birthplace of all life. A paradise worthy of the gods who created it. So the gods
decided to live there alongside their lesser creation, man. But there was no mistaking the gods
amongst the mortals who worshipped them. The gods were taller with gold running through their veins instead of blood. And they could transform at will into all manner of frightening beasts. Egypt itself was divided between two mighty brothers. Osiris, the God of Life, was the beloved king of all the lands made bountiful by the Nile. His brother, Set, ruled the far barren desert finding both strength and bitterness in his isolation. But then the time came for Osiris to crown a new king. His only son, Horus. It was a decision that would test the brothers' bond and the fate of all Egypt.

Some quotes in IMDb but not these from encounter with Sphinx:
I find your dependence on chance troubling. If you continue to survive, I may need to study you further.
Trespassers in the House of the King, answer my riddle or cease to be: I never was. Am always to be. No one ever saw me, nor ever will. And yet I am the confidence of all who live and breathe.
What am I? (Answer -- You are XXYYZZ.)
Ask whatever you will. Mountains will kneel before you. The winds will do your bidding. Answer quickly, for Apophis still hungers. And night is always coming.
-I want nothing. Except what's impossible for me to give.
