Fantasy/Action: The evil god Set blinds and casts out his rival, Horus, forcing him to join forces with a rebellious mortal to reclaim the Ancient Egyptian throne.
In Ancient Egypt, Horus (NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU) is preparing for the passing of the crown from his father, Osiris (BRYAN BROWN) the God of Nature, to him and he will rule over all the land as benevolently as his dad. But Osiris' vindictive brother, Set (GERARD BUTLER), has always been bitter that their father, the sun god Ra (GEOFFREY RUSH), favored Osiris over him. He crashes Horus' coronation with a massive army he formed in the Sahara, kills his brother, and pulls out his nephew's mythical eyes that have allowed him to never miss a target in battle.

Set spares Horus' life, though, to secure the hand of Horus' great love, the goddess Hathor (ELODIE YUNG). As Egypt falls to Set's dictatorship and slavery, Horus becomes a blind outcast. One mortal, Bek (BRENTON THWAITES), rises up in opposition. Bek is in love with Zaya (COURTNEY EATON), but she is killed by her new master, the conniving pyramid and tower architect Urshu (RUFUS SEWELL) when she and Bek try and run away together. Bek has stolen back one of Horus' eyes. Hoping that he can bring his lover back to life, he trades the eye in return for his knowledge of Set's stronghold to get the other eye.

On their journey back to Egypt, they enlist the aid of Thoth (CHADWICK BOSEMAN), the god of wisdom, and also receive welcome assistance from Hathor. But Set has been killing off the remaining lesser gods and goddesses and harnessing their powers. When Horus makes his way back to reclaim his kingdom, he will find him much more powerful than when he last left him.

Teens may have some interest due to its PG-13 rating, special effects, and large-scale action.
For fantasy violence and action, and some sexuality.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
