Why do this film again? This is just stupid.
The first reviews for Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy are in, and it's not looking good for the Tom Cruise-starrer.
The film, which is a reboot of the Brendan Fraser-starring Mummyfilms and the 1932 Karl Freund-directed one before that, stars Cruise as Nick Morton, an Army sergeant and secret antiquities looter who accidentally stumbles upon and awakens a mummy. This version of the titular villain is Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), who brings with her millennia-old malevolence and modern-day destruction.
The pic — the first in a planned Universal monster film series dubbed the Dark Universe — currently has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 28 percent, compared with Cruise's last two films Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which have scores of 37 percent and 93 percent, respectively.
