This movie takes place in ancient Egypt when the Gods lived on earth with humans. The Gods are much bigger than humans, they bleed gold instead of blood, and they can transform into enormous flying creatures, but they're just as vain, greedy, and corrupt as humans. Horus, the god of the air, was to be crowned king by his father Osiris but at his coronation his uncle Set kills Osiris then beats up Horace, plucks out his eyes, imprisons him in a tomb, steals his girlfriend Hathor, the goddess of love, and then becomes an evil despot. There are lots of cool snake sculptures in the movie - on telescopes, fountains, and statues.

Bek, a young human man steals one of Horus' eyes, but his girlfriend Zaya gets killed. He brings the eye to Horus and convinces him to help him rescue Zaya from the underworld and they set out to do that. Set learns that one-eyed Horus has been freed. Set has a couple of young women hunters who work for him Astarte and Anat (played by the beautiful Australian actress/models Yaya Deng and Abbey Lee). He sends the women after Horus. We see that Anat has a forked tongue like a snake, so Astarte probably does, also.

Later, when Horus and Bek are in the desert, we see Astarte and Anat each riding an enormous snake, a black one and a white one. They're chasing after Horus and Bek. The snakes hold their mouths open a lot so we can see their enormous upper fangs. They crush everything in their path and breathe fire on command. The women ride them sitting on platforms as if they're riding jet skis, not monster snakes. Anat blows a long horn for no apparent reason. Bek and Horus manage to kill Anat's white snake by forcing it over a convenient cliff, but Astarte's black snake is about to roast them alive, but the goddess of love Hathor appears out of nowhere to save them. (That's a literal Deus ex-machina.) Hathor seduces the snake and makes it stop. She pulls a spear out of its mouth, then somehow convinces the snake to "warm" itself, and it burns itself to death. This proves that love is stronger than a fire-breathing monster snake ridden by a sexy snake-woman. Or something like that. I'm not sure the message was well thought out.
