The Mummy (2017)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
There are many bad reviews from critics about this summer’s blockbuster but I really liked it 🙂 . I found this story easy to follow (in a good way), I loved the Egyptian back story and I was entertained throughout. I really liked the Mummy Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) and her story plus the actress performed her great 😀 . She was scary, looked amazing and when she “returns” her graphics as a Mummy were cool. I liked the CGI on the mummies and liked how she “turned” others, plus her first attack on the mortals in England was pretty cool 🙂 . I liked the main character of Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and he was a likable character to follow. Plus I really liked his flashbacks / imagination with the Princess which helped keep the story flowing 🙂 . There are some big moments which are cool such as the plane crash, underwater mummies, and when the glass turns to sand in London. I also liked the “secret company” that becomes involved as it hints to a possible other movie (even a series of movies) and gave a new element to the typical Egyptian mummy story. However, there are some rough edges to the tale and I do sense that they did try and shove too many tales without flowing properly. The action scenes aren’t the best so fans of action may feel disappointed. The weakest part for me was Jenny (Annabelle Wallis). She was great at first (I found her moment seeing the mummies with Nick in the church funny 😛 ) but as she went on, she became irritable and not interesting. I did not care what happened to her and liked the Mummy better 😛 . Though she is minor and you can still enjoy the movie 🙂 . This is a really good movie that I would happily watch again but I am a little biased as I loved watching adventure movies involving Egyptian tales 😛 . This is worth the watch and I can’t wait to see what comes next in the Dark Universe franchise 😀 Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
