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.
