Bottom Line: Tom Cruise brings 'THE MUMMY' back to life !!


Millennia after being denied her fate, a betrayed Egyptian princess is back from the dead to take revenge. Determined to reclaim all that should have been hers, she unleashes terrors beyond human understanding. If you are a beautiful Egyptian princess buried alive, you are going to wake up scores of years later. Take it from us. And the first thing you will do is to look upon the face of a handsome stranger, and your hardened heart will melt. 

Star Performance

Protagonist Tom Cruise manages to stay fit at the age of 54 because he spends a lot of time running in his action movies. Alex Kurtzman is the director for the movie. Sofia Boutella plays the part of the New Mummy Rising with a permanent snarl-cum-wistfulness, tattoos running down her face. Because she is female, she has to be jealous of another woman who is vying for the attention of her man.

Techinical Team

There has been some intrigue since we saw the heavily photo shopped picture of Cruise, Boutella and Crowe alongside Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem promising a lot more from the ‘Dark Universe’. But in the absence of quality writing, gripping plots and characters to truly care about, perhaps some monsters are best left buried. The terrific background scoring is stunning to hear in theatres.


The impact of Bollywood is getting stronger, even if it shows up for a flash: the Egyptian princess walks on ancient sandy dunes just the way a series of Bolly beauties have whenever they are transported to a desert for a song-and-dance acres of flowing robes streaming behind, metal bustiers to the fore, background music swelling. This fast action oriented movie will entertain you this weekend.
