The Mummy

Year : 2017 Director : Alex Kurtzman Running Time : 2 hrs Genre : , ,
Movie review score
3/5

What’s it about?
Welcome to a world of gods and monsters! It’s Tom Cruise and ‘our’ Rusty helming Universal Studios own interpretation of a “Marvel Universe” cash-cow using the old (classic horror aka the curse of the mummy) and the new (shit-loads of CGI).

What did we think?
Stephen Scott says: Just like a one-night-stand, you get exactly what you expect: a good time that’s quickly forgotten. Tom is Indiana Jones reincarnated as a sledgehammer that’s been born into a Michael Bay wet dream of ACTION ACTION ACTION! It’s a great way to spend a couple of hours (the plane flight sequence is worth admission alone) with some fun twists, and plot holes as large as the archeological pits they skip over.
