Together with his partner-in-crime Chris Vail (Jake Johnson) and British officer of cultural heritage Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), Nick discovers Ahmanet's tomb and accidentally awakes her. With her powers constantly evolving, Morton must now stop the resurrected monster as she embarks on a furious rampage through the streets of London. "And there could be, certainly that's what happened with the classic Monster films, but I think the key for us is that each monster film must be satisfying on its own terms".
Crowe had always anxious he'd be playing the bad guy to Tom's good guy but Crowe had other ideas. For me, I will stick with 1999 and Brendan Fraser's Kevin O'Connell. "Which then lead us to Henry Jekyll".
"The nonsensical story would matter less if The Mummy would get out of Cruise's way and let him do what he does best". He adds Russell Crowe appears as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for no good reason.
Those action sequences are pretty cool. "We made a film for audiences and not critics so my great hope is they will find it and they will appreciate it".
"And when you do a fight scene like that, you have to throw a real punch, you have to be so experienced that you have to know exactly how to miss and their technical ability to choreograph that while also protecting each other was pretty awesome to watch". What follows are some decent, effects-laden scenes of catastrophe - a wild plane crash, a vehicle chase, some underwater thrills and a few minutes of body slamming with both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Upon being unearthed, Ahmanet zeroes in on Cruise's character and identifies him as her chosen one, which has something to do with immortality. As an action movie - and one that's trying to set up a series of films to come - a post-credits scene doesn't just seem likely, but necessary. "It's the kind of movie that Tom Cruise became a household name by avoiding at all costs". While "The Mummy's" unlikely to derails the franchise even if it underwhelms, it serves as a reminder not to start counting one's monsters before they're animated by lightning. You'd be wrong! Aside from a big sand storm or three and the zombie mummies, the special effects were lackluster. "What? Why does every film these days have to part of a cinematic universe?" It is a fresh attempt and a good start, but it just spends too much time setting up the future.
It comes as a bit of a shock that the film's screenwriters include heavyweights David Koepp ("Jurassic Park") and Christopher McQuarrie (Oscar victor for "The Usual Suspects"), along with actor Dylan Kussman and three writers given "story" credit: Jon Spaihts ("Doctor Strange"), Jenny Lumet ("Rachel Getting Married"), and the film's director Alex Kurtzman ("Star Trek").
