The Mummy (2017) - A Review

The Mummy (2017)

The Mummy is a deeply flawed movie. 
Intended as the first in a shared monster universe, The Mummy  stars Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella. Cruise plays a self-involved soldier-of-fortune, while Boutella plays the title character.  Cruise walks through his role, while Boutella sinks her teeth into her's.  Despite this, despite the presence of Russell Crowe as Doctor Jekyll, this movie is bland and unoriginal.
The biggest problem with the movie, in my opinion, is that there's no one to route for. Cruise's character is just too unlikable, while Boutella is clearly the villain.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give The Mummy a 2; wait for this one to come out on DVD or On-Demand. Give the theater a pass.
