Yes, Gods Of Egypt is silly and fairly badly acted at times, but it's undeniably spectacular, bounces briskly along (for the most part) and never, ever falls into the trap of taking itself too seriously.
[It's] not satisfied with being your average forgettable blockbuster. No, it wants to be something much worse: a big-budget disaster whose existence is meant to lull those unfortunate few watching to sleep, only to shock them awake in a fit of rage.
It clearly seems to have been made with the desire of making something of quality that just fails spectacularly, and there are definitely some unintentionally laughable moments -- actually a lot of them.
Granted, there's really no good reason for this nonsense to last over two hours; there's probably no good reason for it to exist at all beyond garnering Alex Proyas a long-overdue paycheck. But here it is, and it's actually pretty fun.
