SYNOPSIS: Tom Cruise starrer film The Mummy is a horror film with an interesting plot. This Friday on 9th June, the film released in India with a hope that Tom Cruise is having a good fan base in India so the film can rock here.
STORY: Millennia after being faced a bad fate of her; a betrayed Egyptian princess is the comeback from her grave to seek revenge only. And she is as deadly as vengeful. And the ferocious princess can do anything for her revenge!
REVIEW: Tom Cruise literally manages to stay fit at the age of 54 and we can say it is because all the time he has been seen running or doing action in his high-octane movies. Obviously, why he should not do so he received the hefty paycheck in return for doing the same.
And seems like this time Tom Cruise repeat the same in his horror film ‘The Mummy’ which he already did in the acting movie ‘Mission Impossible’. Unfortunately, the entertainment value in this franchise-building reboot is thinly spread, and fans are looked like received less fun and recreation in the movie.
The Mummy is technically mixtures of all the masalas like merging action, mythology, horror, and comedy resulting in the confusing story. Even the occasionally surprising, massive set pieces with elements flying at you in 3D, are not impressive!
Cruise’s protagonist is his version of a lovable rogue, and he turns to be a saviour in the movie. Annabelle Wallis wanders around as the damsel-in-distress and she needs to be rescued ASAP.
But in this horror flick The Mummy, the Egyptian princess Sophia Boutella somehow did justice to her role and she manages to make people somehow scared for while. The film is all about Sophia Boutella’s fight with Tom Cruise as Tom is the savior and he will be seen saving people in the film.
Sufficiently mesmerizing as Ahmanet a.k.a. the mummy, she transitions from a creepy, violent monster to a seductive goddess with ease, and her chemistry with Tom Cruise is just superb.
There’s massive horrible eye candy, and in-your-face action to enjoy in ‘The Mummy’ if you ignore the plot holes and frustrating characters. But the first entry in Universal Pictures’ monster franchise looks like enough to capitalize on Hollywood’s current world-building fury.
With the Tom Cruise and his popularity, the film is expected to fetch audiences to the theaters. Admittedly, there’s been some deception since we saw the heavily photoshopped picture of Tom Cruise, Boutella, and Crowe.
But we can say overall the Tom Cruise features new film The Mummy is just an average movie and the film is failed to leave any impact, so better if the film will be blurry earliest!
