    "It's fine" ?
    You. The critic who $hits on mediocre movies. And it's fine?
    This movie didn't even have an ending...aside from a few scripted, forced-humorous lines it had nothing else.
    Tom Cruise got slapped around a bunch, which was enjoyable, wouldn't call it a high praise, though.
    Edit- I really thought that was Rachel Weisz in one of the opening scenes set in ancient egypt, was it? Why didn't her name come up in the credits?
    I wouldn't even call it a "fun" movie.
    That's the thing. Brendan Frasier movies were at least that.
    Russel Crowe has more forced exposition lines...right until the end and To Cruise was racing through the desert on horseback?
    Who was he talking to?
    How would he know those things?
    And why did they include Jekyll and Hyde- omg this movie was a disaster.
    Not fine.
    Not fun.

    The people who are complaining about Chris complaining about Jenny in the people are completely missing the point or are just those anti-SJWs, who ironically themselves behave as stupidly as SJWs.
    Jenny is a weak and boring character. It doesn't matter if you give her martial art skills, she would still be just as uninteresting and completely useless and unimportant to story. Her very existence is not needed in the story. She doesn't even "inspire" or help the male protagonist like in John Wick. The fact that she is a damsel in distress does not matter AT ALL. Evelyn from 1999 movie was a damsel in distress in both movies but her character was strong and intriguing. She used her intellect and wits to help defeat the Mummy. She was resourceful and brave. But Jenny, that pathetic excuse of a protagonist was just plain through and through.
    Besides, creating a bad character like her also shows the weakness in writing. This is what Chris is trying to say. He is demanding better writing from a franchise that's known for interesting characters (male, female or mummified). Tbh Tom Cruise himself was not that interesting either in the movie. He was just OK. His character was 4.5/10 or less.
    So, yeah. The *truth* is writing a weak character cannot be excused just because the character happens to be a female. Try and be reasonable, guys and gals. No one ahould tolerate a useless and uninteresting character in a film, be it male or female or some other species.

    Once again Mr. Struckmann I agree with everything except the grade. Like Iv grown to like Tom Cruise and not because were both from Syracuse, New York. Tom Cruise is a lot like Keanu Reeves , Keanu is not particularly a great actor but it seems almost everything hes in his riveting and awesome. Tom Cruise has far more acting talent but he goes overboard a lot trying way too hard , but he always seems to be in these riveting and exciting films. That being said I don't thionk Iv ever seen a film with great visuals, special effects and a stellar cast absolutely SUCK. I cant put my finger on it but I cant believe Cruise accepted this role. The script was absolutely shit. The only thing original was throwing Russel Crowe in a Dr. Jeckyll. I cant believe he chose this film as well. But overall the story was far fetched with absolutely no engaging suspense or twists. When I watched this film I felt like they literally just through the script together in a week, and simply planned on banking because its a traditional monster movie that has Tom Cruise and Russel Crowe. I honestly would give this movie a D+ Only thing I appreciated was the cast and some of the visuals/ atmosphere.

    Movie was okay untill you see the sarcophacus hanging under the chopper. From that point on the only good thing about the film was Ahmanet. Every scene background in the movie was grey, and dull. Tom Cruise did what Tom Cruise does best wich is: wooden acting, embody the emotionless template of a character and turn the character into a cringy bland generic actionasshole that leaves moviegoers in a coma. He always acts the exact same way in EVERY movie he plays in, in fact he's not portraying a character he's just beeing Tom Cruise !! Btw the blonde side chick was annoying as F**k. This crappy movie was going all over the place, except for the place it should... Because they leave egypt after like 15min? 🤨

    Yup, scatterbrained. Horrible raping of Egyptian culture, though. I really can't stand when producers/writers change the names of integral characters for the sake of confusing ACTUAL HISTORY. Yeah, Tom was good, but I felt like it was the prequel for another remake of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen".... All in all, the plot had EXTRAORDINARILY huge holes in it. Regardless of a few exceptional scenes. I give this one a 2 out of 10. Just to be clear, I really don't care what gender the 'Mummy' is, as long as it's a GOOD 'Mummy'! Personally, I thought this one lacked depth, and character. The previous installment was much more entertaining, in my opinion.

    I disagree, Tom Cruise sucks in this movie! For me he just came off as an unlikable, reckless, bumbling idiot that's trying so hard to be a badass! I hate this movie because the writing is shit, the acting sucks, and Universal's idea to essentially make their own version of the Marvel cinematic universe out of classic monsters is so fucking retarded!

    I enjoyed Russel Crowe IMMENSELY in this movie. In fact, I’d have preferred seeing his story rather than this. The fact that the whole Dark Universe thing is canceled makes me sad because I wanted more of him. Jenny was... so freaking sad. Just no y’all. No.

  • Unknown Unknown

    I think the movie was..." Eh" because you can tell it was whitewashed. And by whitewashed, I mean that this is an egyptian tale about an egyptian curse of an egyptian mummy, and who they pick to play the majority of characters? White people. Yes, the Frasier version had a lot of white people in it too, but you also had the Medjai, the representation of the other culture and people who the mummy is native to. Sure I liked a lot of elements about this story. It had a lot packed into it and they could easily have broken this story down into multiple movies, packed in more details, thrown in more monsters, and it wouldn't have been as whitewashed as it was. They basically focused on filming it in England, another instance of whitewashing. Even in the Frasier movies, they based the not tomb scenes in Cairo. They could have done so much better without whitewashing.

    How do you feel about these old monster movies, which were originally great in creepy atmosphere, timing, imagery, and story, all just being rebooted as distinctly not scary CGI-bloated action movies? I think it's sad that Hollywood would rather take these classic cinema monsters out of the horror genre and force them into the action genre.

    I really enjoyed the Brandon Frasier movies. They were silly fun, didn't took themselves to seriously. Somewhere between a serious adventure movie like Indiana Jones, a parody and a genuine comedy. They had the right mix.
    Sure, they aren't masterprieces, but they were really enjoyable.

    I just finished the movie and I needed to come back to re watch your review. And I definitely agree with your opinion Jenny's character. OMG she was ANNOYING. And frustratingly useless. I was so disappointed that he fell for her when she did nothing and he ultimately "gave himself" fully to the curse for this bitch. Really dude, she did nothing. I know there has to be a love interest but they couldn't do any better than that!? Besides that, movie was ok. I liked the mummy the best. This movie had at leadt one bad ass chick. Though this will NEVER top the originals for me either. They will always be some of my favorite guilty pleasures. I still have them on vhs lol. (Yes including The Scorpion King😂)

    The movie is good but you can’t help but look back at the Brendan Frazier movie (I say movie because I don’t acknowledge the other two) and it’s just. I weep. The best parts were Russel Crowe THE BEST REALLY and the mummy lady. She was cool, powerful and sold her role. Could’ve done without that romance with Jenny... just. Please no. The whole reason for the ending... she needed to be saved. God.

  • Ja tack

    I personally HATED quite many of Cruise's funny quips and faces. It totally destroyed whatever scary mood the setting and score had build up. The overall theme of the movie was sabotaged by Cruise's attempts to make it funny.
    Ofcourse, it wasn't only Cruise doing funny stuff, but his comedy made the biggest impact for the worse. Imo. He was the subject of a real curse. He shouldn't be telling jokes. He should be seriously scared, close to panic, and not in a funny way.
    Rant over.

    To be fair, Oded Fehr who played as Ardeth Bay in 1999 movie, he kind of did the same thing in the beginning. I mean, there was a few parts where he kind of went silent, but at the beginning and end of the “memory” or “flashback”, he did what Russel Crowe did.

    I had the same amount of fun with Mummy as with most Marvel movies or the past Brendan Fraser Mummy movies. All this critique seems like pretentious whining from pseudo movie experts, going into the movies with certain expectations, needing very little reason to bitch to show how well they analyse films. Sit you ass down, get rid if you bullshit expectations and JUST watch the film, not to talk about it later with people, but for yourself.

    Tom Cruise sucks as an actor no sense of humor no real acting skills, his only good movies were cocktail and top gun...with this aid he has not learned to do other types of movies and should be removed from the Hollywood arena until he learns to act better. he always plays all his roles way too serious and isn't very good at many movies. Brendan Fraser is a way better actor with lots of versatility and i believe he will always be better for movies like this over Tom Cruise. Some people may be high in the director's eyes but should not be chosen for that reason but on their ability to play the part.

      +Jashan Wariach It's a more infuriating "fine", but I have to be honest, he is kinda right when he says the movie is only fine. While Transformers had cooler robot characters with awful human characters, this one had not so well-written human characters, but actors who at times can make those characters maybe a little bit more bareable just because they're those actors. I have no interest in defending this movie, but I'm also trying to avoid blind hate. Every time someone asks me, I'm just going to say this movie is not good, because it still has good stuff in it.

  • Jeffrey314159

    Tom Cruise has made some very good movies over the years, Oblivion was the last great one he made. But in this film he is miscast!
    Having said that, this film is still very entertaining with some great action scenes & spfx(if you saw this movie in a theater or on a widescreen).
    This film has been misjudged by the critical intelligentsia, but it is still not a great film, for it could have been better.
    In the end, I was sympathizing for antagonist Princess Ahmanet, and no one else.
    Tom should never have been cast here because in this film he's just Tom Cruise. He sucks the oxygen out of the room, not because of his talent but because of his star power and ego! The film became a Cruise vehicle - - get it ;-)
    If they make a sequel, which is less than likely, they have to get rid of Tom, and bring back Sofia Boutella at all costs!

    Tom Cruise was soooo badly miscast. They should have absolutely found someone else, because not once could I take him seriously. And the ending! God, that ending was stupid. I'm even more unconvinced of an all powerful Tom Cruise with Set inside of him. Honestly, the movie would have been so, so much more interesting if Jenny had been the one to free Ahmanet and become setepa'i.
