Is It Any Good
The first entry in Universal’s Dark Universe monster series gets things off to a so-so start it tries to be a crowd-pleaser but it seems its makers never decided exactly what kind of movie it is.
Like the 1999 movie of the same name The Mummy is an action movie above all It casts Nick as a lovable scoundrel, and it makes many attempts at snappy humor between him and the other characters.
There’s also at least one clever fight scene But aside from a couple of simple jump-scares and references to other monsters it’s not really a horror movie or a monster movie it doesn’t really care about the monster and it probably won’t warrant repeat viewings at Halloween time.
The Mummy Full Movie (Review)
Parents need to know that The Mummy is a monster movie reboot starting Tom Cruise It has very little to do with either the 1932 Boris Karloff version or the 1999 Brendan Fraser take on the story Rather it’s the first in Universal’s new Dark Universe series which is planned to be an interconnected franchise much like the DC and Marvel superhero movies.
Expect fairly strong very loud fantasy/action violence with some blood spatters guns and shooting stabbings fighting and punching crashes and explosions jump scares zombies and a lab full of gross things There are several mildly suggestive sexual references, too including partly naked and/or obscured.
male and female bodies kissing a couple shown in bed together and sensuality Language is infrequent but includes “a–hole” and “son of a bitch as well as hell and damn.The main character who’s presented as a hard drinker quickly downs several glasses of liquor in more than one scene with no effect This film marks the first Universal Mummy movie to have the central monster played by a woman.
The Mummy 2017 Box-Office Collection
This despite the fact that the movie was the biggest global opening ever for Cruise at $169.3M. However relative to the production investment here which we are informed is estimated at $345M in total production and global P&A spend broken out $195M production cost and $150M distribution/ad expenses those records and even this weekend’s No. 1 overseas hold of $53M — are not enough to get Mummy over these hurdles.
