Gods of Egypt is ludicrous
5 second plot: When an evil god takes the Egyptian throne, it's up to a young thief (one of the good guys) to help the rightful heir to the throne (also one of the good guys) get his eyeballs back (yes, you did read that correctly; there's even an eyeball on the poster: go look for it) and restore peace in their country.
5 second review: This movie is all about the (computer generated) spectacle. There's nothing else to it. The effects are often decent, but I couldn't help noticing I had a stupid smile on my face the entire time. Because it all looks really ridiculous. For instance the fact that humans are a lot smaller than gods. It looks a lot like an Exodus: Gods and Kings spoof, only it isn't. And that's painfully sad.
