I really, really wanted to love this movie - and, for the most part I did, until the last 10-15 minutes. While it was meandering and low-key, definitely not your typical zombie film, that was okay;it worked. Then, the last scene it just fell apart, introducing a far-out element (which would have been fine, had it been of any consequence to the story) and a final monologue beating the audience over its head with the film's presumed message. It reminded me of the final scene of Black Klansman, which couldn't just end on a high note after subtly - and excellently - proving its point the movie. Zombie movies often warn of the consequences of consumerism without heavy handedly doing it. The Dead Don't Die was great until the director decided his audience was stupid, in the process taking a movie that was a solid 4 and halving it.
Ick - loved return of Brendan Fraser and John Hannah, Jet Li was great. Without Rachel Weisz it just didn't have the heart because the cast's chemistry was off. Maria Bello is a fine actress but this wasn't a role that should have been recast.
Not quite up to the original but pretty close. Love the chemistry of the cast and the action. Great special effects except for the weird Rock scorpion king toward the end.
You know a movie is great when you can watch it again and again - that's true of the first two "Mummy" movies.
I really liked aspects of this film - the originality, the casting, locale, twists - but I just couldn't get invested in any of these characters and that's really the heart of an apocalyptic movie.
