The Mummy (2017)

Action & Adventure • PG-13 • Directed by: Alex Kurtzman • 110 minutes

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

Viewer reviews

Don’t waste your time and money
★★★★
I’m a fan of Tom Cruise, but this movie was a disgrace. Two thumbs down. — #IMLikeABoss

One of the worst I ever watched
★★★★
A waste of money and time. Watch the original. — Southgtlman

Great movie!
★★★★★
As always, a great movie with tom. — Lights952

better than expected
★★★★★
Cruise turns in a solid, very Cruise-y performance. If you are a fan, you’ll enjoy him in this. He’s about as good here as he is in Oblivion. Crowe is a bit hammy. I like him, but he was wrong for his part. I expected a bad B movie and this was a good B movie. The effects are very good and the lore is passable. Frankly, I enjoyed this more than X-men Apocalypse. I am not saying The Mummy is great or even good movie, but if you saw it on a plane, you’d be totally fine with it. If I were RT, I’d give it a 39%. — blainerunner

Definitely See! Very Entertaining! Don't listen to the haters, they are stupid
★★★★★
My husband and I are avid movie critics and we found this movie extremely entertaining! It had a lot of great action, was thrilling, scary in the parts they were going for, had a lot of witty banter and funny lines, Great cinematically and over all a truly enjoyable movie. Don't listen to the bad reviews. Do yourself a favor and just see the movie. You'll find that the haters were just being mean. I think you'll really enjoy the movie and be glad you saw it. — matching dysfunctions

perfectly fine escapist Adventure Movie
★★★★★
Not sure why the super low marks, this is getting. I just watched it and it was a perfectly acceptable totally escapistic adventure mummy movie with an, intermittently very attractive, intermittently very scary, Female Mummy, Tom Cruise as the somewhat klutzy hero, but not wanting to be a hero, and lotsa special effects and stuff. It is not "Lawrence of Arabia", nor is it "Blade Runner", but if you want a nice distracting, not totally serious, but not extra-creepy either, action filled, expensively constructed cinemagraphic thing, this works. I probably should give it 3 Plus Stars, or 4 Minus at best, but i'll give it a 5 Stars just to counterbalance all the unexplainable 1 Stars. — Neuralangel

Sucked
★★★★
The originals from the 40s will always blow away these wanna be pseudo crap remakes spend your money on the original with Boris Karloff — stp2112

Wait and rent
★★★★★
Not worth a purchase, may be worth a rental price. Tom has never been a great actor, but played some good roles. Typical Cruise movie. — LOMG77

Mummy casting done wrong
★★★★
The lady they chose as the mummy. I found her to be mediocre as an actress and I am shocked they hired her. They could have done better than that. The villain has to be believable. — gb0923

Nope
★★★★
Nothing comes close to beating the first 2 movies , its time to retire Mr Scientologist . — DJJS J.

Trash
★★★★
This movie was garbage. Tom cruise's dude-Bro friend becomes a zombie, tom falls in love allegedly after a half one night stand and then he 'sacrifices' himself to some mystery monster by letting the mummy kill him. Corny. — Pobzombie

Absolute fun
★★★★★
I can't force my opinion on those who didn't like this. I watched in 4k and this movie was absolutely fun to watch. In fact I watched it twice. Kindly don't compare it to earlier version and spoil the fun. It is no better or worse than earlier movies. 🎥 Hope you all enjoy it too. — Amit_Apple

Same Stunts, different movie.
★★★★
What a waste of a rental. Is it a requirement for Tom to do the same stunts involving an airplane in every movie he makes. I'm sorry but the acting was poor and a storyline was nonexistent. "SPOILER" Did they really leave it open for a sequel? I would rather watch the old Boris Karloff mummy movie then go through this again. If you must see it wait till it comes to TV and watch it for free. — Omegavc

😏
★★★★★
It's pretty great movie. Like a lot — Church going

Anything Tom Cruise
★★★★
At this point it’s extraordinarily difficult to stomach anything that Tom Cruise makes. He knows that his church is a lie and that the person running the show is causing significant harm to individuals and families and yet he is more concerned with being a great actor and he hides behind his religion as if they are truly “clearing the planet”. What a joke. Tom Cruise, you are a joke. — Thirty-Something

Really liked it
★★★★
Great effects, drama, action. Classic Tom action persona. A fun watch. — TCN-larkspur

Great!
★★★★★
It was a very interesting movie with a great climax , there should have been a big fight but at least he kept the powers. Hope there's a second part to it. — Deadhitman12271993

It really wasn't good
★★★★
I watched this on the plane after finishing the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and I found myself much preferring the Pirates film. That should say something. The reviews were actually spot-on for The Mummy. I think there were glimmers of attempts at recreating the charm and humor from the original films, but there was also a very obvious, heavy-handed Tom Cruise influence (from what the gossip rags say, he made a lot of changes and the production team caved into his demands). What you get is neither a Mummy film or a Tom Cruise film, but some indiscernible mess in between. The romantic leads had no chemistry, Tom's character wasn't interesting or even likable, and I found myself rooting for the baddie because she was at least compelling and interesting. — Furiae

Fun setup for future monster world
★★★★
The movie was busy, but fun all the way through. Don't know what all the terrible reviews are about; have some fun people! — Gutftufugftfu

had potential but completely ruined it
★★★★
After having read the reviews, I went into it with an open mind and told myself I wouldn't compare it to the Brandon Fraser series. I should have listened to the other reviewers. I will never get back 110 minutes of my life back that I wasted, not to mention the $6 I spent to rent this garbage. I think it had potential with the Egyptian background story, but they completely ruined it with horrible, unrealistic military aspects as well as tying other monster characters into this movie. It was so horrible and made me angry that I felt compelled to write a review to spare others from wasting their time and money. — Juliette1812

Awful
★★★★
Awful awful awful awful movie...By the way did I say it was awful.. Yuk. — Trump girl

Basic. Silly. Boring. Contrived.
★★★★
This movie follows a formulaic big studio production that relys on glitz instead of a strong, well-written story and strong acting. Skip it. — ricexmm

Jeez, c'mon. It was entertaining...
★★★★
I don't really understand all the negativity in the reviews. Best movie I ever saw? No. But it was never boring or slow moving and I found it to be entertaining. I've seen much worse!! — clane47

Entertaining & Suspenseful
★★★★
First; it IS a visually stunning and suspense filled ride! The reviews - overall, seem pointedly harsh and say mostly, "the film doesn't know what it wants to be," which isn't true. This is purely entertainment. Cruise & Company deliver. It's not supposed to be deeply thought provoking, but if you want some suspense on a Saturday night, rent it. I also disagree, the story line knows what it wants and where it's going. Jake Johnson (Nick on New Girl) as Cruise's sidekick was a fun surprise and their bantar is refreshingly like Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis. I liked it, it had tense moments and made for a great viewing. It is nothing like the original, the only likeness is the title. — swmck

Wait, was that the mummy?
★★★★
To start, I'm actually a huge fan of stupid scary movies. Unfortunately this reeks of a movie someone spent way too much money on and it just turned out without any cinematic redemptions. The leading lady is beautiful (I was taught to say nice things) and that is the best compliment I can give. The story line is disjointed, the characters lack development, the plot is overly "modernized", and everyone hits below their theatrical weight. I love the franchise from Boris Karloff to Brendan Frasier and this is a grand misadventure. Russell Crowe and Tom Cruise's characters only serves to add star power and the entire movie under delivers in a fashion that is introspectively disappointing. Please don't try again, leave it alone. Signed, movie fans. — MDMcD

Should have kept this one "under wraps"
★★★★
Wow. Notice there is no explanation point. In theaters, the previews made this look like a thriller, creepy scenes, scary moments and the like. Sat down to watch it and for the first 15 minutes, the movie attempts to be a comedy but fails miserably. Then it's as if the writer quit so they hired the one from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The movie got so confusing and so convoluted with terrible jokes in awkward places, then back to creepy, then to romantic, then to mystery. This was the worst movie I have seen in a couple of years. Usually Tom Cruise is a shoe-in for a good action adventure. I think embalming a corpse would have been funnier and more entertaining than this worthless piece of mindless drivel. — Dr. Mean

Had to turn it off
★★★★
They were all trying, but it was a mess. No one tries to make an unwatchable movie. They managed. A lot of work and money down the drain. — brslc

Crap
★★★★
Despite the reviews I gave it a chance. But it's crap. — br8vhrt

wow
★★★★★
the best movie in the world, you all need to see it! I can not believe the story, action,drama. I pray that Tom wins oscar for from this movie. I am going to but million copies so Tom can make more money. He really deserve to be named as the greatest actor in our life time. Go tom, you are great. keep making movies like this and you will be a lot happier. — iamstupid123

Just Ok!!
★★★★★
Had potential to be great, but.... I liked the story line of the Egyptian princes, nothing much else!! — Pink Fate

Age appropriate casting?
★★★★★
This movie is alright. The age inappropriate casting of Tom and Annabel who is easy young enough to be his daughter was distracting. Tom's underwater swimming facial expressions sum up how I feel about that. Pretending to be young with hair dye, makeup, work, a chef and time with your personal trainer doesn't cut it. Cute touch to see the book from the prior "The Mummy" make an appearance. Entertaining enough based on the junk coming out these days. — PapaBeee

Pretty sweet
★★★★★
Dont base it off of the Original film. Tom Cruise being in is all you should know that this film will not be like the Original at all. Get past that, and it is enjoyable. — Dell051

I've Seen Worse -- Everyone Relax
★★★★★
Number one, not supposed to be at all connected to the Brendan Fraser films. Number two, was it lacking? Yep. Did they focus on visuals over script? Yep. Was the direction less than stellar? Yep. Still, I've seen much, much worse. And I watched this entire thing, which is more than I can say for the majority of movies I've started this year. I rented this and don't regret the $6. The moments of tension kept me paying attention. What this lacked in large part that made the BF franchise so well loved, is the relationship development b/n the protags. There just wasn't really enough dialogue between cruise and the female to feel connected to them or the other characters. But if you watch in a spirit of enjoying some special effects and action, and respect that you're not a professional critic, actor, director, or screenwriter, you may actually enjoy it. — Swansonm

Waste of time
★★★★
sorry to have purchased this movie. It is total crap. Probably the worst Tom Cruise movie I have seen. Avoid this movie at all costs. If you are curious about the movie rent it or better yet see at a friends house for free. I will delete it. — Family Properties of Chicago

Poor Script, Weak Acting
★★★★
I normally don't write reviews, but I feel compelled to make an exception. The previous Mummy movies were classic but this version was simply awful. The script was poorly written and frankly, boring. The acting wasn't much better. Save your money and skip this one. — Alyssajoy87

Yes, The Mummy - not the Brendan Frasier show
★★★★★
Too many people appear to want something akin to the other mummy shows, but this was more a world builder for the world of darkness. And to be honest, I liked it a lot. Especially how they ended it. Five stars from me. Too bad there are so many negative reviews. I would really like to see a continuance of this storyline/world. — IGNiteous

Well that was bad
★★★★
Could this be the roll that finally turns Tom Cruise into the new Nicholas Cage? Was the allstar cast actually directed to not try or was anyone paying attention? What else do we have in the backlot of Universal that we can try slapping a Universe logo on? The answer is yes. — DefinitelyNotTomCruise

Why All The Hate?
★★★★
Not sure what folks were exepcting. I thought it was a really well done & great film. Actually quite mature and refreshing for the genre. — NME09

A fresh take.
★★★★★
I am a fan of monster movies. This movie is by no means a terrible movie. The laughs are there as well as a fresh take on the story. If you do not compare it to other movies I think it does well on its own. — cr@zybear

Amazing
★★★★★
This movie was wonderful. It’s almost like people are hating just to get on the hate band wagon and I HATE that. :p. Stop hating. Tom cruise is awesome. Get this movie. It’s an awesome ride and I can’t wait for the sequels — Computermilk

Great!
★★★★
I got more then expected! Love the characters and how they develop throughout the movie. The hints to previous mummy movies are really great. Can't wait for the sequel! — AsMarcellile

No bueno
★★★★
Weird seeing Tom do this movie. — C2dlos

It’s Okay 3.5 Stars
★★★★★
The movie has action and special FX, an okay story, but it’s average. If it were an original movie, maybe 4 stars, but because it has The Mummy name and one has to compare to the last original Mummy, it’s not as good by far. The original with Brandon Fraser was cinematic and has a nice, engaging story. This one is just the typical, A.D.D action flick for current generation. Tom Cruise is A+ though — .TomCruise.

Very disappointing!
★★★★
I couldn't wait fort to be over — WontonSoup55

So So
★★★★★
I wouldn't say I loved it or hated it. Some good action stuff, storyline was a little lacking. I wouldn't spend the money to buy the movie but I did rent it. — Art Gressick

A mess
★★★★
Wish I had my $5.99 back. Last Tom Cruise movie for me. — Spuds246

Tom Cruise is a Scientology Whack Job
★★★★
Which is why I refuse to ever watch anything he's in again so long as I live so help me God. Go get'em Leah Remini and Mike Rinder! Watch The Aftermath on A&E. — RRobinson37401
