THE MUMMY (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.7|5.0 Starsìì

The Mummy
does not have the impact that the Brendan Fraser movie, The Mummy, has. The acting does not meet professional standards, the portrayal of story is weak, and comedy relief is not used to spice the storyline. The film, overall, does not meet expectations for actors like Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. The movie does not deserve its watch.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Alex Kurtzman for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Jeb Brody and Roberto Orci for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Nick Morton (Tom Cruise), Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), Sergeant Vail (Jake Johnson), Colonel Greenway (Courtney B. Vance), Malik (Marwan Kenzari), Crusader (Simon Atherton), First Man (Stephen Thompson), Second Man (James Arama), and Reporter (Matthew Wilkas).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. The Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz film, The Mummy (1999), and The Mummy Returns (2001) are the definition of artistic endeavor for this story. This story substitutes a female mummy awakening rather than a male mummy awakening.
