No Brendon Fraiser, no stars. Enough with the remakes already. RemakesRemakes are not well made these days.Gohstbusters, Fantastic Four,Total Recall, shoot now they are even thinking about remakingFlatliners and Overboard. These were great movies that did not need tobe remade and degraded. Please have an original thought Hollywood, isit too much to ask for? Anyway. It was a forgettable film that shouldbe lost in the dust.

The Mummy has had countless iterations of the character grace thescreen for the better part of the 20th Century. With the 1932 originaland the fun but lazy 1999 remake and anything in between, we prettymuch got it. It can be scary or it can be action packed as it seemsHollywood has left there to be no in between for this type of film.Unfortunately neither of those extremes apply to this one. The Mummy isa pandering and very meager attempt at cashing in on a potentialfranchise. It's sad to watch because it feels like the studio madethis. This doesn't feel organic in any way, shape or form and relies onCGI filled action sequences, Tom Cruise, and cheap scares that end upbeing unintentionally funny to progress the story. None of which comesoff the way it should.
The story is absolute crap to put it as lightly as I can. It is plottedso on-the-nose that you can't have anything left up to your imaginationexcept for some scenes of violence that may have been too much for aPG-13. Outside of that, everything is spoon fed to us as the audience.Instead of making you feel like you can keep up, the movie treats itsaudience like we are stupid and still expects us to continue watching.Honestly, I almost walked out at certain points, it got that bad.Especially during the scenes with Crowe's Jekyll, which are so heavilyplot oriented that you can't get a feel for his character and when youget the chance to, it fails, crashes and burns.
The cast is surprisingly strong on paper but director Alex Kurtzmanfails to utilize them in roles that best suit them. Tom Cruise isreally the only cast member that fits the part which, when consideringwhat genre we're talking about here, is a horrible thing. Courtney BVance, who delivered an awards caliber performance in American CrimeStory, is watered down to nothing more than a mere walk on role.Russell Crowe is so obviously doing the film for the paycheck, it feelslike he isn't even acting and he is just reading queue cards.
As a fan of the cast and the 1932 original, I was left completelydisappointed by everyone here. Director Alex Kurtzman, who went fromdirecting a small indie to all of a sudden directing this big bombasticaction summer blockbuster, feels out of his element here and misses thebeats of a good action movie and completely neglects everything thatcould make a great horror film. The Mummy is by far one of the worstblockbusters in recent memory and stands as a major misfire forUniversal's Dark Universe and Tom Cruise.
This is a good start for the rebooting of the Universal Dark Universe,if you're expecting a remake of the 1990's Mummy films then you've gotthe wrong idea. The first thing you should know is that this hasNOTHING to do with those movies and are completely unrelated. This is are-imagining of Mummy's Hand (1940) that started the Mummy series ofmovies but with a whole new agenda. This time Universal are makingthese films to link in with all their other monster movies,Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman etc so comparing it with any otherMummy film before it like the critics keep doing is utterly pointless.
The movie is a high entertaining fantasy horror film, its not theglossy action comedy level of the Brendan Fraser films, its darker anda lot more violent but still full of spectacle and a decent amount ofhumour that doesn't completely dominate the dramatic content as manyfilm allow these days. Only Disney's Goofy or Loony Toon's Wild ECoyote can take the level of battering Tom Cruise gets in this movieand still stay standing. The Mummy is an exotic beauty who can hit likea Mack Truck. There are elements reminiscent of An American Werewolf inLondon (1981) and Lifeforce (1985) that forge this version of the Mummyand Russell Crowe's Dr Jekyll makes his glorified entrance half waythrough to remind you this is a shared monster universe so expect moreof the same.
Quite simply you either like this sort of stuff or you don't, if youlisten to critics they'll convince you this is the worst movie evermade, it's not. It's actually really good fun and nothing more, itwon't suddenly change your life and have you buying movie merchandiselike a Star Wars film or Marvel franchise flick but it will entertainyou if you're not already going into the cinema armed with a criticalgun ready to shoot it down for daring to star Tom Cruise like theaverage Hollywood critic and their anti-Tom Cruise agenda.
