Did You Know?

Trivia

In the film, souls pass to the afterlife by having their richness weighed on a scale against a feather by Anubis. In Egyptian mythology, the souls placed their hearts on a scale (as a symbol of the flaws and virtues), which why internal organs such as the heart were mummified. The movie apparently sets the version of mythology that is known today. See more »

Why are the reviews so low?? Great Movie
22 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was a actually a pretty epic movie. Probably more like an 8 or 9 out of 10, but i have to level out some of the reviews that really dogged this movie. You have to go into this knowing it is a fantasy movie. And it's pretty darn good. Great story, and satisfying ending. Do yourself a favor and don't pay attention to the overall score, just go and see it.

There were some unexpected twist and turns. The Director definitely didn't cut any corners. There was some pretty good CGI, as well as some OK CGI. Overall though it was good. Hopefully there will be a sequel.

Costumes and acting were good, I know people complained about whitewashing, but really who cares. I know i don't make enough money to care.
