It was okay. The storyline could've been better but the special effects were good.

Looked forward to some harmless entertainment. Got a seriously bad movie. Not worth it.

This movie is in the top five of the worst movies ever made. If you've seen a technique or a special effect in one Cruise movie or even just a classic, then you'll see it again three or more times in this movie.

Any movie with Tom cruise promises to be good and this was no exception. The guy from that show New Girl was funny.

The worst mummy movie compared to the previous 3. Even Jet Li's Mummy 3 is better than this one. Very disappointed.

The movie “The Mummy” is a fantastic movie full of adventurous events and action-packed tales. The animation of this movie was marvellous especially with the special effects, the special effects of this movie was absolutely perfect. Unlike other movies which seem very fake, “The Mummy” has the most realistic looking special effects by far. This movie actually seemed very real and would make you reconsider if mummy’s can actually rise from the dead. “The Mummy” has an outstanding plot with some journalists and thieves discovering a tomb of an Egyptian queen. Although The Mummy has the power to control people and can talk to the thieves in their mind, while a research group analyzes her. The emotion and mood which this movie emits is unbelievable with bits of fear, anger and suspense. Throughout the movie, the emotion was very tense with every little event. I believe that this movie is only enjoyable and appropriate for teens and adults as there is some disturbing parts. “The Mummy” is definitely terrifying for young children. Anyone who loves history or mummies will enjoy every second of this movie. Rating 4/5

Directed by Alex Kurtzman in 2017, this action-adventure-fantasy depicts the re-birth of Princess Ahmanet of the New Kingdom of the ancient Egypt.
Although special effects appear really great and fascinating, the story seems unbelievable and childish.
In any case, I enjoyed this flick as a thrilling entertainment.

Why didn't this one work? It had the requisite special effects and strong action sequences.
Perhaps Cruise sabotaged the film by choosing to portray a central character who was a goofball smart-mouth, though deep down decent guy.
It worked for Brendan Fraser in his Mummy series but that was a fun-filled, high adventure, exotic locale type of romp. This film tried for a darker, more sombre approach, but then threw in Tom Cruise and his jarring Jerry Lewis-like antics.

The legend:
Well, we've developed this theory that an Egyptian princess had been erased from the history books deliberately. We've been searching for something called the Dagger of Set. A ceremonial knife with a large jewel at the hilt. Set is the Egyptian god of death. And legend has it that the dagger and the stone, together, had the power to give Set physical form. I'm convinced it was hidden here in Europe. Stolen by Crusaders centuries ago. I found reference to it in a manuscript written by a Crusader knight that suggested the dagger was broken apart. That the stone was buried with this
knight somewhere here in England. A massive Crusader tomb was recently discovered under London. We believe that the stone is in there somewhere. That tomb is what led us to Ahmanet. I think she's the princess in the legend. The hieroglyphs said she murdered her father. ... Along with his child. She made some sort of pact with the god of death...

It is my job to make sure that anything of value stays out of enemy hands. We have no idea what could be down there. The contents of Tutankhamun's tomb alone were valued at 650 million pounds sterling.
Perhaps. Sometimes, it does take a monster to fight a monster.
He is also still a man.
-A good man. Perhaps. Yet he has only begun to discover his power. And we cannot know which side will win out. Between darkness and light, good or evil.
Princess Ahmanet. Beautiful, cunning, and ruthless. Sole heir to the throne of Egypt. The pharaoh's kingdom would one day be hers to rule without mercy or fear. And Ahmanet would be worshipped as a living god. But Pharaoh had a son. The boy, now, would inherit her destiny. And Ahmanet understood power was not given. It had to be taken.
But death is a doorway, and the past cannot remain buried forever.
