“Gods of Egypt”

Daily Southtown - - TELEVISION -

(7 p.m., FREE): A de­fi­ant young mor­tal (Bren­ton Th­waites) forms an un­likely al­liance with the pow­er­ful god Horus (Niko­laj Coster-Wal­dau) to save the world from Set (Ger­ard But­ler), the bru­tal god of dark­ness, in Alex Proyas’ 2016 fan­tasy that got roy­ally roasted by crit­ics for ev­ery­thing from its ju­ve­nile script to its not-very-spe­cial vis­ual ef­fects. The harsh­est crit­i­cism, how­ever, was re­served for the cast­ing of mostly white ac­tors as Egyp­tian char­ac­ters.
