Gods of Egypt has its moments but as a whole it’s not well made in spite of a talented enough filmmaker in Alex Proyas and a respectable cast, in particular Gerard Butler hamming it up to great effect; not to mention lovely actresses Elodie Yung and Courtney Eaton as love interests to the two leads. This is probably worth a rental, not much more.
Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the fantasy action adventure, Gods of Egypt starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler and Geoffrey Rush and directed by Alex Proyas (Dark City, Knowing).

The Devil’s Hand is an oft times trite supernatural-horror film with some so-so acting from actors I normally love watching including Rufus Sewell and Colm Meaney. It’s easy to see why this was a quick dump job by Lionsgate and offers no bonus material while the video/audio transfers are serviceable enough, however.
The Tourist isn’t as bad as most have been, yet at the same time I don’t quite understand how it received the Golden Globe nominations it did while other more worthy films were left off (see: Morning Glory). That said, if you keep your expectations in check and are willing to suspend some disbelief you just might have a good time with this comedy/thriller.
