An average movie

Since this movie was so poorly received, I didn't expect much from the damned thing but Nick, my step-son, was really eager to check it out. Well, in fact, probably because I had such low expectations but, to be honest, I thought it was actually not bad at all. I mean, this mummy concept remains rather limited and I thought the makers did a decent job. Sure, it was still nothing  really amazing but the action scenes were quite spectacular. Still, even though the action scenes were entertaining enough, there were maybe too many of them, and, as a result, you get to see the mummy in the streets of London causing some major damages only for a few minutes which was rather disappointing. Concerning Tom Cruise, even though the guy doesn't rule the box-office anymore (no one does nowadays),  he remains a decent lead actor and I liked the fact that they tried to show that his character was not really a hero, even if this aspect could have been better developed. It was also obviously a gimmick to have the mummy played by a woman this time around but Sofia Boutella was seriously charismatic, in spite of the obvious limitations of her character. Eventually, you might wonder if they will move on with their 'Dark universe' considering the lackluster enthusiasm towards  this movie and the scenes connecting this movie with the other characters which would be involved in this universe felt really forced and rather awkward. Anyway, even though this movie has already a lame reputation, I think it was actually worth a look but don't expect anything really amazing before watching the damned thing.
