IF YOURE like me, then you can never get enough of Gerrard Butler.
Drop it like itâ€™s hot, Iâ€™ve heard Snoop Dogg say in one of his songs and the same can be said of Butler as he releases one â€˜hotâ€™ block buster movie after another.
The versatile actor is well known for his roles in Olympus has Fallen, The Ugly truth, Law abiding citizen, The Bounty Hunter, Playing for keeps and numerous other movies.
Latest is The gods of Egyptâ€¦but it doesnâ€™t end there because in a few weeks the Scottish actor will drop London Has Fallen. And I know for sure that if youâ€™ve watched Olympus has fallen youâ€™ll be curious to know about the London â€˜fallâ€™.Â So be sure to look out for that showing.
In The gods of Egypt, a movie inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek [Brenton Thwaites] undertakes a titanic yet thrilling journey to save the world and liberate the love of his life.
In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] in a questionable alliance against Set [Gerard Butler], the hard-hearted god of darkness, who has commandeered Egyptâ€™s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.
As their magnificent battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the after-life and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass the tough tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to overcome in the epic final confrontation.
If you love action-adventure movies, then this US$140 million production is a must-watch as the twists and turns will take you on an adrenaline-charged adventure.
Be sure to spare time to watch this movie and more at the SterKinekor Cinema at the Arcades Mall.
