One of the better God related Mythic movies ...imo


Watched it for the first time on dvd yesterday , really enjoyed it....don't understand all the hate .....was a million times better than, IMMORTALS , or , WRATH OF THE TITANS

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the west

they got the mythos part all wrong though. killing off Osiris for good even when in the end all other gods are revived is like having jesus transformed into the easter bunny and lived haply ever after along with the 7 dwarves .

the Osiris story of resurrection is vital to all the ancient Egyptian mythology, without him there wouldn't be any trial and no one to rule over the souls who passed the trial.
even worse the issue of quartering of his body is tackled but they decide to kill off not only Osiris but the goddess responsible for reassembling his body in the "traditional story"

so happy they made Anubis what he is/was really supposed to be and not some of Seth's minions...that alone made me smile.

I missed the part where they claimed that this was an accurate portrayal or a documentary.

That's right, they didn't!

if the topic is god related mythic movies then the mythos shown should be subject of discussion.

This is by no means a good movie, but some of the mythical elements in this movie were pretty interesting. Such as the flat world or the huge beast that attacks the world or everything related to underworld.
