Gods of Egypt is a fun, cheesy adventure story about the struggle between the gods Horus and Set, and the mortals that get caught in between.

Ra: Egypt has always been a paradise. But now, there is chaos. God of the air, you must protect the mortals.

Few know the whole story. From what I recall, it goes something like this... Before history began, Egypt was the birthplace of all life. A paradise worthy of the gods who created it. So the gods
decided to live there alongside their lesser creation, man. But there was no mistaking the gods
amongst the mortals who worshipped them. The gods were taller with gold running through their veins instead of blood. And they could transform at will into all manner of frightening beasts. Egypt itself was divided between two mighty brothers. Osiris, the God of Life, was the beloved king of all the lands made bountiful by the Nile. His brother, Set, ruled the far barren desert finding both strength and bitterness in his isolation. But then the time came for Osiris to crown a new king. His only son, Horus. It was a decision that would test the brothers' bond and the fate of all Egypt.
Some quotes in IMDb but not these from encounter with Sphinx:

Trespassers in the House of the King, answer my riddle or cease to be: I never was. Am always to be. No one ever saw me, nor ever will. And yet I am the confidence of all who live and breathe.
What am I? (Answer -- You are XXYYZZ.)
Ask whatever you will. Mountains will kneel before you. The winds will do your bidding. Answer quickly, for Apophis still hungers. And night is always coming.
-I want nothing. Except what's impossible for me to give.
