Tome Cruise was like a walking joke in this and while I saw this in the cinema, people were laughing during an action scene that was actually badly put together and I didn't realise this until now. There were plenty of good things but they were just not put to good work. The ranking is based on esimated torrent downloads only. I quite like Doctor Jekyll being thrown into the mix by the way. In general I think it was reasonably well done. I hated almost every scene he was in. It's neither dark enough as a head bothering thinker or witty enough to tickle the funny bone, in fact it at times is very dull.
But the studio has a bigger plan, that you would know if you watch the film, that they had already developed a plot for at least two more films with enough characters to carry on that long. I mean the character designs. My skills cover many aspects of graphic design, web design, illustration and technical knowledge; I am rather skilled on hardware, software, and computers knowledge too. It's all well and good people asking for it not to be judged by other Mummy films, but the creators here make that inevitable. Russell Crowe is a lot better as Doctor Jekyll. Sometimes it's a huge action blockbuster. Computers have been in my life since I was a child and I always loved anything related with web and graphics, most of my skills and knowledge are self taught.
He is mostly wondering about being meh and just reacts to the various situations he is thrown into. Tonal problems and bland writing. I love solving complex problems that make things work in specific ways. Bottom line, I did enjoy the movie. Being a mummy movie there are of course a lot of supernatural stuff, curses, monsters and action. Since then, an unknown force begins to hunt down one of that two army men.
Tom Cruise gives another solid performance despite his character being super unlikable. It was less than the 20 years, the last 'The Mummy' film had released and pretty impressed everybody with modern visual effects. Genre Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Thriller Imdb Rating 5. Comparing this to that, there's nothing much other than more perfection in graphics and additional digital 3D. Even today's young generation getting used to that when it was played on the television.
So the technology advantage would play a major role. Lifting the plot from one of the 1940's films, and even stealing a scene from the Stephen Sommers school of Mummy film making. In addition we publish a yearly review of. Kurtzman is a bad screenwriter and a just as bad director. Sure, it is not a great movie but it is not really bad either.
The female lead who's name I can't remember is incredibly bland. Some fun action scenes and performances can't keep this film from being a boring trainwreck. Even though it did good at the box office, it was considered a decent run. The direction is quite bland. From a summer blockbuster audience pleaser point of view it has the requisite effects work, it's loud, rambunctious and has Cruise and Crowe for star wattage, but Cruise is going through the motions, Crowe is laughably miscast with a later dreadful accent issue to compound the misery , while the rest of the cast play second fiddle to the over egged effects work. In my opinion, they should have waited another decade.
Jake Johnson's character is one of the most annoying characters in a movie ever. The good parts were sometimes really good but in between it felt like everyone went to lunch and let the janitors have a go at movie making. It was exactly reversed version of the 1999 film. It is not just a remake of the original The Mummy movies which I think is actually good. Actually, he was good in the film, but the film was unnecessary at this generation.
Now before I begin to tear this film into shreds, let me give you some background. I feel that's a bad idea right now. On the whole the movie and the story held a lot of promise but in the end the overall performance failed to really impress.
