Mummy, The (2017) 
The Mummy - A Bad Start to the Dark Universe?
2/4 stars

The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, the same guy that wrote the script for the Amazing Spiderman 2. The funny thing is, both of these movies were made to create their own universe. We all know how the spidey universe turned out and to be honest, this isn't much better.
Tom Cruise plays an ex soldier named Nick Mortan.
Tom cruise is an awesome actor and sells every role. He does his own stunts and is very likeable in his movies.
I liked his character but he's kind of a dick. He's just out for himself but as usual Tom cruise sells his character.
Then we have Anabelle Wallis as Jenny. An archeologist, who basically tells Tom Cruise where he needs to go.
Her character is literally a damsel in distress. I thought we were pass this, but apparently not. Probably not the best timing considering Wonder Woman came out the Friday before but she's fine.
They have a romance that seemingly comes out of nowhere. Every movie these days needs a love story apparently. John Wick was so awesome because there were no love story, just ass kicking action.
Russell Crowe stole the show with the scenes he was in. I won't say who he plays in case you don't know, as I didn't going in.
Jake Johnson plays a Sargent and good friend to Cruise and is meant to be in it for the comedy. In all honesty, he wasn't funny, he was just annoying. The audience reacted to the comedy twice the entire time. Not great.
Sofia Boutella was awesome as the actual mummy, and scarily attractive. She might be a little overpowered and I found myself thinking they would never escape certain situations they were in, but overall I did enjoy her version.

Please don't go into this movie looking for a good story, you won't find it. The film is a typical action movie with no real point to it.
The real issue with this film is it's not sure what it wants to be. It's an action film, a horror, then a comedy, all while trying to set up the Dark Universe.
The set up feels forced. Instead of trying to make a good mummy film, they were more interested in letting us know there will be future films.
We just want a good mummy movie. I was looking forward to this film too and it was a big letdown.
The cool thing about Brenden Frasers mummy was it never took itself too serious.
It was a adventure comedy at heart with horror and supernatural elements interwoven and it worked well.
I think they should have made it more horror orientated. A horror universe with monsters would be cool as hell.

This is a rocky start for the so called dark universe. I think they need to figure out what kind of world they want to create.
The Mummy is a 3 out of five.
The visuals are awesome and Tom cruise is good as always.
The story is nothing exciting and a little underwhelming.

If you've seen the movie, what did you think?
