Description

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

    It was a very interesting movie with a great climax , there should have been a big fight but at least he kept the powers. Hope there's a second part to it.
  • It really wasn't good

    I watched this on the plane after finishing the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and I found myself much preferring the Pirates film. That should say something. The reviews were actually spot-on for The Mummy. I think there were glimmers of attempts at recreating the charm and humor from the original films, but there was also a very obvious, heavy-handed Tom Cruise influence (from what the gossip rags say, he made a lot of changes and the production team caved into his demands). What you get is neither a Mummy film or a Tom Cruise film, but some indiscernible mess in between. The romantic leads had no chemistry, Tom's character wasn't interesting or even likable, and I found myself rooting for the baddie because she was at least compelling and interesting.
  • Fun setup for future monster world

    After having read the reviews, I went into it with an open mind and told myself I wouldn't compare it to the Brandon Fraser series. I should have listened to the other reviewers. I will never get back 110 minutes of my life back that I wasted, not to mention the $6 I spent to rent this garbage. I think it had potential with the Egyptian background story, but they completely ruined it with horrible, unrealistic military aspects as well as tying other monster characters into this movie. It was so horrible and made me angry that I felt compelled to write a review to spare others from wasting their time and money.

    This movie follows a formulaic big studio production that relys on glitz instead of a strong, well-written story and strong acting. Skip it.
  • Jeez, c'mon. It was entertaining...

    I don't really understand all the negativity in the reviews. Best movie I ever saw? No. But it was never boring or slow moving and I found it to be entertaining. I've seen much worse!!
  • Entertaining & Suspenseful

    First; it IS a visually stunning and suspense filled ride! The reviews - overall, seem pointedly harsh and say mostly, "the film doesn't know what it wants to be," which isn't true. This is purely entertainment. Cruise & Company deliver. It's not supposed to be deeply thought provoking, but if you want some suspense on a Saturday night, rent it. I also disagree, the story line knows what it wants and where it's going. Jake Johnson (Nick on New Girl) as Cruise's sidekick was a fun surprise and their bantar is refreshingly like Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis. I liked it, it had tense moments and made for a great viewing. It is nothing like the original, the only likeness is the title.
  • Wait, was that the mummy?

    To start, I'm actually a huge fan of stupid scary movies. Unfortunately this reeks of a movie someone spent way too much money on and it just turned out without any cinematic redemptions. The leading lady is beautiful (I was taught to say nice things) and that is the best compliment I can give. The story line is disjointed, the characters lack development, the plot is overly "modernized", and everyone hits below their theatrical weight. I love the franchise from Boris Karloff to Brendan Frasier and this is a grand misadventure. Russell Crowe and Tom Cruise's characters only serves to add star power and the entire movie under delivers in a fashion that is introspectively disappointing. Please don't try again, leave it alone. Signed, movie fans.
  • Should have kept this one "under wraps"

    Wow. Notice there is no explanation point. In theaters, the previews made this look like a thriller, creepy scenes, scary moments and the like. Sat down to watch it and for the first 15 minutes, the movie attempts to be a comedy but fails miserably. Then it's as if the writer quit so they hired the one from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The movie got so confusing and so convoluted with terrible jokes in awkward places, then back to creepy, then to romantic, then to mystery. This was the worst movie I have seen in a couple of years. Usually Tom Cruise is a shoe-in for a good action adventure. I think embalming a corpse would have been funnier and more entertaining than this worthless piece of mindless drivel.
