The Mummy had its first wave of reviews yesterday and they’re generally extremely poor. Tom Cruise stars in the reboot, but it’s not a good start to Universal’s “Dark Universe” it seems.

The film has a low 25% score on Rotten Tomatoes and has barely received a positive review. Here’s a rundown of how the major movie outlets have rated the film:

It’s hard to muster anything like desire for another Dark Universe flick after seeing this limp, thrill-free debut – The Hollywood Reporter.

“The Mummy” is a literal-minded, bumptious monster mash of a movie. It keeps throwing things at you, and the more you learn about the ersatz intricacy of its “universe,” the less compelling it becomes. – Variety.

An out-of-the-gate stumble that doesn’t even have the sense to sport its own so-bad-it’s-fun personality, barely qualifying as horror, adventure, fantasy, thriller, or even Tom Cruise vehicle. –  TheWrap.

Rolling Stone – 1/5

IndieWire – D-

ScreenCrush – 4/10

The Guardian – 2/5

Forbes – 3/10

Den of Geek – 1/5

IGN – 5.5/10

BBC – 1/5
