Review of "The Mummy"

Review of

Among all the main characters, Boutella is the star of the movie.

DC and Warner Bros. have jumped on board with its DC Extended Universe and "Wonder Woman" marks its fourth film and the fifth is headed to theaters in November in the form of "Justice League". Cruise is the big name in Universal's opening effort to establish a cinematic universe around its classic monster characters (see sidebar), and investing in his star power is probably a smart move when it comes to reaching global audiences.

The original The Mummy film was released in 1999 and was followed by The Mummy Returns in 2001.

This movie is the first in a scheduled series of films rebooting Universal's iconic monsters, known as the "Dark Universe".

But it's here and Tom Cruise wants it to succeed. There were a number of problems with the movie, but the most glaring was a lack of identity.

For a writer as good as Kurtzman, the characters in The Mummy are atrocious.

"The Mummy, ' with Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, Marwan Kenzari, Russell Crowe". Starting with The Mummy, monster fans are getting an entire world of stories, each interconnecting with one another. Instead, it was seen as a fun adventure flick with a few jumps and a few laughs.

However, The Telegraph's critic is slightly more convinced, describing the film as "patently ridiculous - and surprisingly watchable". "It's not that Cruise hasn't had misfires before (and between Rock of Ages, Oblivion, and [Jack Reacher], they're happening at a faster rate), but The Mummy is the first of his films that doesn't feel like a Tom Cruise movie", he continues. "The flabby, shapeless film itself doesn't have his muscle-tone".

Tom Cruise is still Tom Cruise, and the action is still spectacular, but that's not enough to make this movie work. I've watched all his movies, from "Risky Business" on.

Of course, the Hollywood machine can bring competency to the table and they actually nearly made a decent movie had they not pulled their punches at the end. So who knows if we'll ever see any followup to this easter egg. It doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's chock full of 3D action. "He's going to fight it, debate it, stare it down, put it in its place, kick its ass, out-think it and out-run it, out-punch it and out-underwater-swim it". Written by what seems to be a conflicted three-man team (including David Koepp, of "Jurassic Park") and directed as if in a panic by Alex Kurtzman, "The Mummy" is an action-horror-fantasy driven entirely by special effects, with incongruous elements of black comedy, eroticism and gadgetry - all laid atop the narrative blueprint of an "Avengers" movie.
