Director - Alex Kurtzman

The aging star Tom Cruise should be ashamed for starring in this unrelenting big-budgeted picture. He is not to blame for his large career setback and though he took the fall when it should have been the writer/director Alex Kurtzman's. He still has a touch of charisma left from his middle-aged looks, but was unable to save a remake that is beyond worth saving. Russell Crowe was featured in the supporting cast as the mysterious Dr. Jekyll as the character was borrowed from an classic novel. Sofia Boutella delights in her acting playfulness with sheer fright and seduction as Ahnamet, the undead Princess of Egypt.
THE MUMMY has a few scares to terrify the moviegoers but not able to thrill them into the completely forgettable monster-mash. I advise viewers who have and haven't seen the campy fun of the 1999 remake see this film one time and not bother to rewatch it. Otherwise if you are looking for a good monster movie, rewatch THE MUMMY trilogy instead.
