“The Mummy”: All Tom Cruise And Little Plot, We Need To Know


    If you finds a movies to watch on the weekend in the cinema, you can choose The Mummy. It has good grades and bad grades. In this article, we are to find out about it.

    The Mummy is the movies:

    Genre: Action | Adventure | Fantasy
    Directed by: Alex Kurtzman
    Starring: Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis
    Written by: David Koepp, Dylan Kussman, Christopher McQuarrie (screenplay)

    Runtime: 1 hr 50 min

    The Mummy – Official Trailer 

    Tom Cruises’ The Mummy is the first movie to start in the  Dark Universe of Universal. Tom Cruises doesn’t direct the movie, but he’s the clear star of it and it’s all about him.

    The Mummy is with any of the previous Brendan Fraser ones. As mentioned this film is part of the new Dark Universe monster franchise. If you’re looking for a comparison when it comes to quality, it is fairly similar to the former Mummy movies, but with a whole lot of added Cruise.

    The good The Mummy

    A lack of star big names isn’t an issue with this film. Aside from Cruise, Russell Crowe stars as Dr. Henry Jekyll. Annabelle Wallis plays Cruise love interest and archeologist/explorer Jenny Halsey. Jake Johnson plays their sidekick Chris Vail. Wallis is an interesting choice here, as she’s the lesser known name, but holds her own alongside Cruise. Cruise always seems to surround himself with talented lesser known actors in his movies that end up carving out nice careers after starring alongside him, look no further than Rebecca Ferguson.

    The action is non-stop. There is some neat use of CGI that brings the mummies to life. The mummy caves look intimidating and mysterious, it’s also the setting where most of the movie takes place in. Additionally there is an airplane scene that really pops. Some of the sequences are over-the-top, but that’s to be expected in a movie like this.

    Towards the end of the movie there is an interesting twist and tease of a character. This is done to set-up the following Mummy movie and potentially give a head start to the Dark Universe and preview of what can be expected. I’m glad that the identity of the new character wasn’t revealed, that way there is built-in intrigue going forward.

    The Bad of The Mummy

    The first: 

    If you expected a charming, adventurous and witty Cruise character, you get it. The problem is that there is just too much Cruise. I get that he’s the main star and is naturally highlighted in his films, but this feels more about Cruise and his character Nick Morton much more than about the story and origins of the mummy. That aspect is secondary.

    The second: 

    The plot itself isn’t all too interesting. They discover a mummy tomb of an ancient princess that unleashes her evil terror soon as the overly curious Morton opens up pandoras box, in this case the tomb. There is a decent origin story set-up, but soon as the evil princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) is released the plot jumps straight into action without serving much of a end purpose, aside from pointless destruction of humans and attempting to convert Morton into a god that will work alongside her.

    The thirst:

    I was hoping for better use of Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll character. There is a brief scene when Henry goes Jekyll, or Hulk-esque, which is just a brief tease of the character ultimately. More interaction between Morton and Jekyll would have presented an added story intrigue.

    The fourst: 

    I watched the movie in 3D and it did little to distinguish it from a non-3D screening. That’s not a good sign for a movie that uses as much CGI as this one. I expected it to pop visually, but it marinates instead.

    The Conclude

    Overall, new The Mummy is just ‘meh’ and gets a shoulder shrug for a reaction. It’s not bad, but it’s not great either. For a big popcorn summer flick it’s fairly underwhelming. There was a lot more potential that this movie could have lived up to, but it meanders on the basic formulaic action. The beginning of the film reminded me of the introduction of Apocalypse in the last X-Men movie, which was a good thing, but it quickly dissolves into mindless action.

    I wish I could say that the Dark Universe is off to a bright star, but instead it’s still trapped in the dark ages. Now, it is the movie fun and entertaining. In the Summer with popcorn, soda and another, The Mummy is the best choise for you.

    Have fun watching movies.

    How to add to Amazon firestick


    You can download the latest version, it supports Firestick. The previous versions don’t.


    Player not working. Message “No player link available” keeps coming up. Installed on Android 7, Moto G5. Did I fail to install correctly or is the service down?


    Maybe that particularly movie doesn’t have any player link. Try watch another one, like Split for example, I can watch it just fine.

    I like this alot can you cast to your TV


    Yes, the current version supports more external players than the previous ones. However, if you’re using Chromecast, I’m afraid that you’ll have to wait for future updates.


    Hi.. I’m trying to install on my Minix Android box. I’ve used the APK provided and installed it. After installing, only the logo comes up and nothing else. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.


    Hmm, have you downloaded the latest version which is the 1.5r ver.?
