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.

    Would have given 4 stars but feel that this has been given a massive under rated score from some, so this is to balance the unfair reviews that have been given. It’s balanced and is another take on the story that to be fair kept me watching through out. Take it from me that this was worth watching and Tom Cruise is on top form as always.
  • Nice enough effects, but not nearly as charming as the 1999 version

    Nice enough effects, and I enjoyed the crusaders sub-plot, but this incarnation of The Mummy not nearly as charming and watchable as the 1999 version. The plot feels like a committee of uncertain writers used too many focus groups, and the apperance of a very under-used and underdeveloped Jeckyll/Hyde character was just baffling. Much like the Mummy herself, Tom Cruise looks like he needs a rapid and prolonged injection of life; he was never a great actor at the best of times, and now he looks past his peak. So very typical of Hollywood films now... Rent when it becomes cheap enough, but you'll have a much more enjoyable time watching the 1999 version.

    I loved this film. Based on other reviews I thought I’d take a punt anyway and began watching, waiting for it to turn into a turkey... but it didn’t. That said it’s not the film I suspected it would be and at times I thought it took from An American Werewolf in London and the Evil Dead 2. It’s a right hoot if I’m honest and the unpredictable switching from serious horror to slap stick humour had me laughing out loud! Don’t follow the haters, this goes into my Tom Cruise Top 5. Watch it!!!!

    It's not a strictly AWFUL film. It's alright, the reviews of it were fairly dire, so my expectations were as low as it could get. It had some entertainment value.... It's what I class as a "day off sick" film. One of those where you're feeling rough and need something easy that doesn't need any brain power to absorb.
