Storyline Heading
Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess, whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Horror - This is a modern-set reboot not only of the Mummy adventure/monster series, but the beginning of a new shared universe featuring many classic monsters. So this film only resembles the recent Brendan Fraser-starring series in that a mummy is involved and the tone is more action than horror, though the horror angle is more strongly evoked here than in those other films. Language, violence, and some scary monster effects and images make the film too intense for young kids. Tom Cruise fans will certainly enjoy though those of Russell Crowe and Jake Johnson may be disappointed by their more limited screen time.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Narratively incoherent and full of cheese and camp, this movie makes it clear that the mummy should have remained dead and buried. There's no real story here – at least not one worth telling. The Mummy doesn't end. It stops. ...the final scene makes no sense whatsoever.

USA Today Full Review
Good The Mummy unwraps a surprisingly welcome gift for moviegoers: a film with Tom Cruise being unheroic for a change, a freaky-deaky breakthrough for Sofia Boutella and a satisfyingly nutso beginning to a grand monster revamp.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Poor ...this reboot lands onscreen with a resounding thud. Director Alex Kurtzman – who, as a screenwriter, has tackled everything from Alias episodes to a Transformers movie – can't seem to make sense of a script by numerous writers clearly unashamed of hack work.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average Too much is at stake, leading to formulaic plot filler and exposition that snuff out the spark of the early scenes. The most dominant force here is the studio mandate to wring 10 films out of one idea. It's a foundation built on sand...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 56 moviegoers:
The professional critic reviews vary greatly and so do the moviegoer reviews.
TEENS: Two loved "The Mummy," and two rated it "average," which, coming from a teen male, is sorta low for a major movie with such star power. As for the ladies, one loved it, two enjoyed it very much rating it "above average," and one rated it "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Great reviews from both the males and females. They all either loved it or enjoyed it very much, which is a very good review.
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are decent, but certainly not great. About 30% of both the males and females loved it. Another 20% of the males and 40% of the females indicated that they enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average." Unfortunately, nearly half the males and a quarter of the ladies rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable) with a small percentage actually disliking it. For s major summer blockbuster movie with major star power, these are mediocre reviews at best.
