I'm sorry it took so long to review this...I've been very
busy all summer, and there are so many new shows and
miniseries to review!
This is a standard historical miniseries. If you like
history, and lots of battle scenes, with spurting blood,
then you'll like this.
The cast is very good. The young man who plays Tut (Avan
Jogia) is very handsome and charming. He does a good job. I
loved his work on the ABC Family show "Twisted" as well.
There are two other more recognizable acting vets in this:
Ben Kingsley, who plays the Vizier; and Alexander Siddig
(who plays Amun).
I enjoyed watching it, even though it was not
particularly clever. It's not a bad miniseries, and a
pleasant way to spend 6 hours or so. From all
accounts, it's also fairly historically accurate. There are
some interesting things to learn, such as that it was common
for the Pharoah to marry his sister. Wow!
Check it out. It's coming out on DVD, too.
