Could the timing be any worse for a movie with a diversity problem as extensive as "Gods of Egypt"? A couple of days before #OscarsSoWhite Sunday, a movie comes out set in ancient Egypt and starring white actors from Australia, Scotland and Denmark. In this version of ancient Egypt, gods live among the mortals – in one case, in outer space, but more on that later. The gods look just like humans but they're much taller and in really good shape. Unfortunately Horus' Scots-accented uncle Set, the god of darkness (Gerard Butler) also wants to be king, so he stabs Osiris to death and maims Horus, tearing out his eyes.A very bad period ensues for both gods and mortals. Bek and Horus become sort of a god-mortal buddy team, each with his own urgent agenda.
