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".

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.

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.

The Mummy is a terrible movie in a multitude of ways, including dated views on women and people of color.
October 15, 2018
Not completely horrific, although if I keep peeling back the layers, it might disappoint me more and more.

I left not necessarily thinking this was a good movie, but still caring about the characters going forward...

Who doesn't want to watch another redundantly bland, would-be hero made from an irredeemable man who inexplicably is redeemed?
August 30, 2018
A poor start of a universe which idea is better off in a tomb.
August 29, 2018
The Mummy is a lost opportunity, introducing an incredible subtext that the movie fails to bring to its logical conclusion: that Tom Cruise, perhaps even more than "Axel F," may be the root of all evil.
August 28, 2018
Bogged down by unimaginative CGI-laden set-pieces, and lacking any character arcs, it's a limp attempt at capturing the summer-movie market overflowing with contenders...
August 28, 2018
The film can't decide what it wants to be other than a Tom Cruise vehicle.
August 21, 2018
Overall, "The Mummy" feels empty, devoid of any real urgency, intensity, and lacking in any likable characters.
August 20, 2018
I am not even gonna bore you with all that is wrong in terms of directing, editing, lighting, or casting because all those could have been forgiven if the movie bothered to be a movie. This is one massive product placement.
May 8, 2018
The Mummy feels inconsequential. While you're enjoying the ride, it never feels as though it's going anywhere.
