Darke Reviews | The Mummy (2017)

All please forgive me if you don’t get a full review tonight I am not in the right frame of mind. I am dealing with the loss of a fur-baby; so TL;DR only today.

Longer review pending – probably with spoilers – as I want to rip this movie apart. So people who enjoy me verbally (textually?) eviscerating movies you have something to look forward to.

The movie is bad. They made Tom Cruise not charming. The effects are “ok”. They have no idea on tone. Its edited badly.

It rips off of LifeForce AND American Werewolf in London simultaneously and not in good ways.

Do not see this.

See Wonder Woman again and again – or see the Brendan Frazier one.

  4. I was finally able to watch this movie. (I decided to borrow it from the library instead of spending my money on this movie since your review made it clear it was going to be a loser film). I have to say, I’ve never felt this deep wish for a lead character to die before. (Characters Sergeant Nick Morton and Jenny Halsey). The ONE PERSON that I didn’t wish death on DIED and even though he was sorta still there, it just wasn’t the same. I had hoped this would be one of those so-terrible-that-it’s-actually-good movies, but this sure wasn’t it. It left me sad and feeling old because I could still remember how much I like the Brandon Fraiser ones more. (And even the 2nd and 3rd ones that were terrible were still better than this). Tom Cruise should just stick with Mission Impossible…


    • The sad thing is there were gems here, but the studio and production staff behind the scenes were the most problematic elements.

      Alex Kurtzman is not good yet he keeps getting work; I really cannot fathom it.
