Gerard Butler said that as soon as he read the word 'God' in the script to describe his character, he knew would have to embark on a huge bodybuilding process. He said he started his work-outs immediately because he plays a God in the film and 'wanted to make sure he looked liked one by the time shooting began.' See more »
After Hathor and Horus get out of Set's pyramid, Hathor puts her left hand to the side of Horus' head. When the camera is looking at her two of her fingers are on Horus' ear. But when the camera is looking at Horus, all of her fingers are below his ear. This happens repeatedly. See more »

One of those (perhaps too frequent) oddball Hollywood epics where, the first time you see it, you go "what were they thinking?" But it deserves a second glance. This film is in the grand tradition of the famous 1940s fantasy films like THIEF OF BAGDAD 1940 (recommended!).
These films are neither as logical as a STAR TREK saga nor as linear as an Indiana Jones adventure. By nature, they tend to jump around, they tend to be a bit wacky, and they often encourage outlandish performances from their stars.
Which is what we have here. The #1 A-List name star, Gerard Butler has arguably never been more unrestrained in his career. He gives the impression that, after he takes over the world of the living and the world of the dead, his next target is Hollywood itself.
In fact, the lesser known stars give the better textured performances and connect with the audience.
Give it a chance -- as a love story that riffs off some extremely misunderstood Egyptian myths and succeeds in spite of itself, it works a treat.
