Mummy, The (2017)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
09.10.17

Mummy, The (2017) An ancient Egyptian Princess, Ahmanet, turns to evil when her father has a new male heir to the throne. She kills him, his wife and the baby by making a deal with the God of Death, Set. She’s about to bring her god into a living male host when he’s killed and she’s captured. She’s mummified alive and placed in a complex tomb a thousand miles away from Egypt. Thousands of years later soldier and archeology thief Nick Morton (Tom Cruise), along with companion Chris Vail, stumble upon this tomb. Archeologist Jenny Halsey also shows up and we find out she works for a secret organization that keeps track and wants to rid the world of evil. And who heads this group? It’s Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), of course.

Ahmanet returns to life after the plane transporting her—and Nick—back to London crashes near an old monastery. She quickly drains the life-energy from the local authorities and begins to look more human. Soon, Nick is drawn to the location and we find out that he is now her chosen one. She wants to stab him with a special dagger which will allow him to be possessed by Set. When Ahmanet is captured by Jekyll and his crew Nick is torn about what to do. They want to kill and dissect her but he’s feeling a connection to the evil princess.

I had a few problems with the movie. First, they allude that Nick has no soul and that’s the reason she wants to have Set possess him—but he doesn’t act “soulless”. Yes, he is a thief, but he has a sense of humor and I don’t think you can have a sense of humor if you don’t have a soul. Secondly, there’s waaaaaay too much action, as if they were trying to please all the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE fans. But these two things aside, this is an entertaining monster movie that will hopefully lead to more monster mashups. I think my favorite part is when he’s introduced to Jekyll’s lab and we see various monster parts in jars, including a Creature from the Black Lagoon hand and a vampire skull. This isn’t the best monster movie but it’s a great improvement over something like VAN HELSING . Recommended.
