Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It feels less like a movie than a series of compromises worked out by a corporate committee.
Rotten: The Mummy is a mess, a movie in such a hurry to introduce more monsters under Universal's "Dark Universe" banner that it comes awkwardly wrapped in impenetrable layers of exposition.
Rotten: You only have to watch the trailer to know that Producer-Director Alex Kurtzman's reboot of Brendan Fraser's once-charming mummy movies is full of embalming fluid.
Rotten: It's hard to tell if it's Cruise or the dragging weight of the movie, but he's almost totally devoid of the star power that makes the "Mission: Impossible" movies compulsively watchable.
Tried Too Hard, Delivered Too Little
I went in with an open mind, knowing it wasn't the Brendan Frasure versions, which are classics. What I didn't expect was for them to go so off the mark of what most mummy movies entail. They tried to put too much information into a such a short amount of time, the movie is just over an hour, that it simply didn't blend well. Additionally, they tried to incorporate the mummy into the monster universe by introducing Dr. Jekyll & Vampires. This was more confusing than anything. The romance was forced & they left it open for a sequel it probably won't get. I did appreciate the small tribute to the Frasure versions in a fight scene. In the end, the most interesting thing about the film were the eerie credits.
I love tom cruise and the mummy
This particular movie has been redone since The great Boris Karloff, played the tittle role in 1932.......and then in the 70"s with the hammer films from england, and the excellent brendan frasure versions, but this particular version should have been tittled The Dummy......just awful!!
