When it comes to reboots, it’s hard to top the films that preceded it; especially if the films did well.

Well unfortunately, for Universal ‘The Mummy’ had some strong films to live up to. It’s hard to go in to a film while trying to block the others out. You can’t help but measure those up against the film being released this Friday. This film just comes off as a watered down action-horror flick, with events just being predictable throughout the entire film.

Although, Tom Cruise did book the gig as the main attraction of the film, his performance still falls a little flat. This film doesn’t really distinguish itself from any other films out there. Yes, he good eye candy for the audience but it’s just not enough to get the audience to care about him.

There are some parts in the film where humor is used but it just isn’t funny. It seems likes poor writing and getting the actors to try too hard. Another thing you may notice about the film, is that mid-way it tells you about future installments coming. Now this can be either a good or bad thing, ultimately it takes away from actual that is going on right now. At that point you’re losing interest in the film so they needed something to grab your attention obviously.

The film isn’t awful but it’s also not great! You could wait for this one to come out on DVD or better yet, wait for it to hit netflix.
