Spike’s New 3 part mini-series Tut: A story of a Great ruler, Love & A Revered Empire

 

 

Here’s a little history on Tut. Tutankhamun was the son of Akhenaten (formerly Amenhotep IV) and one of Akhenaten’s sisters, or perhaps one of his cousins. As a prince he was known as Tutankhaten. He ascended to the throne in 1333 BC, at the age of nine or ten, taking the throne name Nebkheperure. Now speeding up to the present, I must say that out of all of the historical mini-series’s I have seen this one exceeded all of my expectations about the real story of Tutankhamun. If you are not a ancient history geek like me, you can find in this mini-series the alluring notion of who did what, romance and tragedy.

 

Avan Jogia as Tutankhamun was phenomenal in portraying the young Pharaoh in such power and eloquence. Last but not the least Academy award winning Ben Kingsley for his Oscar worthy portrayal of Tutankhamun’s granduncle and advisor. This is an impeccable mini-series that I cannot wait to watch over again, yep it is that good. Special thanks to the director David von Ancken, writers Michael Vickerman, Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg  for creating an amazing masterpiece. Standing ovation for the Spike network as well for being apart of a revered story, my rating is a 10/10.
