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.

Critics be damned!

This is a good start for the rebooting of the Universal Dark Universe, if you're expecting a remake of the 1990's Mummy films then you've got the wrong idea. The first thing you should know is that this has NOTHING to do with those movies and are completely unrelated. This is a re-imagining of Mummy's Hand (1940) that started the Mummy series of movies but with a whole new agenda. This time Universal are making these films to link in with all their other monster movies, Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman etc so comparing it with any other Mummy film before it like the critics keep doing is utterly pointless.

The movie is a high entertaining fantasy horror film, its not the glossy action comedy level of the Brendan Fraser films, its darker and a lot more violent but still full of spectacle and a decent amount of humour that doesn't completely dominate the dramatic content as many film allow these days. Only Disney's Goofy or Loony Toon's Wild E Coyote can take the level of battering Tom Cruise gets in this movie and still stay standing. The Mummy is an exotic beauty who can hit like a Mack Truck. There are elements reminiscent of An American Werewolf in London (1981) and Lifeforce (1985) that forge this version of the Mummy and Russell Crowe's Dr Jekyll makes his glorified entrance half way through to remind you this is a shared monster universe so expect more of the same.

Quite simply you either like this sort of stuff or you don't, if you listen to critics they'll convince you this is the worst movie ever made, it's not. It's actually really good fun and nothing more, it won't suddenly change your life and have you buying movie merchandise like a Star Wars film or Marvel franchise flick but it will entertain you if you're not already going into the cinema armed with a critical gun ready to shoot it down for daring to star Tom Cruise like the average Hollywood critic and their anti-Tom Cruise agenda.
