The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Gods of Egypt (2016)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Gods of Egypt from 2016.  Is it a triumph of the gods, or will it take a god to save it?

Can you make a movie set in Egypt without any Egyptians? Can you make a movie set in Egypt without filming any of it in Egypt? Could they make the CGI stand out any more?  What is Gerard Butler actually trying to go for?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
