Just awful. ‘Show, don’t tell’ should’ve been the mantra. The endless exposition of backstory and rationale for circumstances and events is tedious and pompous.
None of the characters are credible or engaging. Not even the mummy herself.
There’s so little flow and connection between scenes that it’s almost as if the producers for each one scripted by independent cells of writers. Then they dumped each chunk in the director’s inbox and said ‘stitch it together’. The result is The Mummy 2017. A horrible Frankenstein’s monster of a movie with no redeeming features.
I will caveat this review by saying I could suffer less than an hour of it. Seeing the risible bar scene and mummy victim reanimation reminded me how important vacuuming my staircase was in comparison.
Just don’t go near this.
