Trivia

Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) is not the first female mummy in the Universal Monsters. Before her are:
  • The Mummy (1932), Imhotep (Boris Karloff) searched across millennia for his mummified lover, Ankhesenamun (Zita Johann), who had been reincarnated as Helen Grosvenor.
  • The Mummy's Hand (1940), Kharis (Tom Tyler) had hoped to resurrect his beloved, the mummified Princess Ananka (Zita Johann, archive footage). Before he could, however, he was caught, and for his unholy transgression Kharis was cursed to be an undead mummy forever.
  • The Mummy's Tomb (1942), although Ananka was absent in this film she did appear in The Mummy's Ghost (1944), reincarnated as Amina Monsouri (Ramsay Ames). When Kharis (Lon Chaney Jr.) eventually captured Amina, she transformed into the 3,000 year old mummy of Princess Ananka.
  • The Mummy's Curse (1944), Princess Ananka's mummy (Virginia Christine) clawed her way out of a muddy grave before being transformed once again into a beautiful woman.

Far from being a bad film, "The Mummy" provides some thrills and spectacular visuals
30 May 2017 | by MovieGuy_abc123See all my reviews

The Mummy franchise has been struggling lately. Ever since the original 1999 movie was released, the movies have gradually gotten worse. The first "Mummy" was slick, well made and entertaining; the second was your typical B/C movie, not the worst but far from the best, and then with the third installment it was clear that Hollywood had given up on the franchise and wanted one more pay-cheque.

Skip forward to 2017 and we appear to have something just as good as the original. Sure, for some, the flashy visuals may seem like a cover-up for the (occasional) uninspired dialogue, however, there is no doubt that a lot of money was invested in making this film look good, and it sure delivers on that aspect (even with The Scorpion King setting the bar very low, "The Mummy" (2017) still looks pretty amazing).

Tom Cruise stars, which to some may be a turn-off, but I think some credit is due here. Tom has made a name for himself in the M:I film's, and with his performance in "The Mummy", he shows audiences that perhaps it's not too late to make a name for yourself in a different franchise. He's not the best actor in the world by any means, but he does the job and he does it well enough for the film to be taken reasonably seriously.

I think that it's important to remember that you're not seeing anything ground- breaking with this film; it's not going to have the same impact as the original Mummy title and it certainly isn't going to steal the show at the Oscars, but it has its moments of adrenaline-pumping action, well-crafted visuals and smart dialogue.

Some of this 1hr 47min Egyptian-fetish flick feels a bit clunky, and the story is all too familiar sounding (disturbing an ancient evil which comes back to wreak havoc on everyone), but when you consider that there have been worse Mummy films, 2 to be exact and that Alien Covenant hasn't exactly set the bar for reboots particularly high, The Mummy has its entertainment value, it has its action and suspense, but it also has some cracks in its sarcophagi which will, hopefully, be ironed out when they inevitably make another of these in 2 or so years time.

Not the worst, not the best, but definitely worth watching for a few thrills.

Parental Guidance: Some scary scenes, moments of moderate fantasy horror and bloody violence, language (15+)
