Khufu, or Cheops, was the first Pharaoh of the new house and the builder of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
The movie does not portray him as a brutal and full of energy sort of king but as an ambitious and wise one.
One thing is for certain, the movie clearly depicts his passion to build a pyramid where he could rest in the life to come.
And what a majestic sight it must have been to have seen the building of one of the wonders of the ancient world.
He managed to gather 2.5 million blocks. Some of these weighing 150 tons each. Covering 1/2 million square feet and soaring 481 feet into the sky.
That's quite a structure and movie makers were careful in depicting the great enterprise in a way that was accurate and believable.
They did a great job at taking us back in time.
