Gods of Egypt

 They are like transformers?

In the ancient times when towering gods walked among humans and occasionally transforming into CG creatures for fun, an upset Set (Gerard Butler) goes on a rampage in a bid to become ruler of the world and only his nephew Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) with the aid of a mortal man (Brenton Thwaites) have a chance of putting an end to his plans.

Yes. Very Egyptian.

Not the most unique of story lines and there's a major disconnect when things go into CGI mode, not helped in that every scene there is a god and a human, the gods have to be edited (or carefully framed) to look physically larger. Since I had zero expectations I found it entertaining enough for a no brainer flick. Not one I'd actively watch again though - I give it two silly giant snakes out of five.
