The Mummy Reviews

October 10, 2019
An unabashed pillaging of another culture for the reconstitution of purely exploitative claptrap.
September 27, 2019
The Mummy is just dull, lifeless - devoid of human spark. There are no genuine conversations; there are no relationships that even halfway try to convince.
September 18, 2019
Director Alex Kurtzman packs so many genres into his Mummy movie, it's hard to track all the themes running through this mash-up.
September 17, 2019
The Mummy should haul in the crowds, if not the critical acclaim.
September 1, 2019
Every predictable layer found within the derivative bandages of The Mummy reveals the sarcophagi of a dull and crusty film. The performances are stale other than Tom Cruise who is excited about @#$! no one else can bother with.

It is true that it has a strange beginning, that it takes time to clarify the tone and that it wants to be too many things at once, but that matters little if we are aware that it is a first chapter of something bigger. [Full review in Spanish]

Dark is definitely the descriptive term I would use for The Mummy, as it is much less fun and campy than the 1999 version.
May 21, 2019
The Mummy wants to be a horror movie, an action movie, and kick off an entire universe at the time same - and accomplishes none of those things.
April 16, 2019
As always, Cruise is right in the thick of the stunt action, throwing himself round all manner of exploding buildings and crashing vehicles.
March 2, 2019
This opening film is certainly fun enough to make the prospect of The Mummy's return or other stories a welcome one.
February 12, 2019
Unfortunately, the film fails to achieve the desired launching effect, instead feeling overstuffed and needlessly expository in a way that an oddly flat Cruise can't overcome.

Despite some great action set pieces with Cruise, The Mummy still feels incomplete. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's 9 am, on Wednesday June 7th, and I'm calling it on the Dark Universe, dear readers.

All in all, there just isn't much here to like, and it's a shame. The title would have been better suited to be "Tom Cruise: The Iraqi Plunderer".
November 12, 2018
They definitely paid homage to the original franchise while taking this new series in a more interesting monster direction.
November 4, 2018
About 99% of Cruise's role consists of making confused and exasperated faces in inappropriate close-ups that only highlight how hilariously bad his default Mr. Intensity delivery is for a performance that's all mugging and spit-takes.
November 3, 2018
A mixed bag of action, adventure, horror and comedy that feels like some of the money used on special effects should have been spent on a better screenplay.
October 31, 2018
In trying so hard to lay pipe for interconnected franchises yet to come, the studio and filmmakers forgot to make the Dark Universe's debut compelling in its own right.
October 31, 2018
If Marvel established the textbook way of how to start a cinematic universe, The Mummy should serve as the example of how not to.
October 31, 2018
A fairly generic action flick that features horror elements but fails to bring to the screen a distinct personality that will possibly coalesce into a coherent universe of monsters.
