Tom Cruise stars in this spectacular version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed deep beneath the desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day. Her malevolence has grown over millennia and with it come terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sands of the Middle East through modern day London, The Mummy balances wonder, thrills, and imagination.
Mom and dad were watching the other day and it caught my attention while cooking, so when I saw it at the library, I decided to check it out. I did like the previous one with Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz.
Well, I do lust Tom Cruise and he did oblige in this movie, so how could I not like it. It was a fresher version on the mummy’s tale, with an ending that leaves the door open for a sequel or spin off – on which subject matter, I will not say, so as not to spoil the ending of The Mummy. There were moments of levity throughout the movie, especially whenever Sgt. Vail (Jake Johnson) was in the scene. I especially appreciated the creativity to include another monster within The Mummy.
