In 2017, Universal Pictures released a reimagining of its classic horror franchise, "The Mummy," starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, and Annabelle Wallis. Directed by Alex Kurtzman, the film follows the story of an ancient Egyptian princess, Ahmanet (Boutella), who was entombed alive for committing unspeakable acts, only to be unearthed in modern-day Iraq by a group of soldiers and treasure hunters led by Nick Morton, played by Cruise.

As they transport Ahmanet's sarcophagus to London, strange things begin to happen, and Nick soon realizes that he has become cursed by the vengeful and power-hungry mummy. With the help of an archaeologist named Jenny Halsey, played by Wallis, and a mysterious organization known as Prodigium, Nick must find a way to stop Ahmanet before she unleashes a curse of biblical proportions upon the world.

One of the most striking aspects of the film is its impressive special effects and action sequences, which incorporate a mix of practical and computer-generated effects to bring the terrifying world of "The Mummy" to life. From the breathtaking airplane sequence that opens the film to the intense battles between Nick and Ahmanet, the action is intense and heart-pounding.

At the center of the film is the tense and complicated relationship between Nick and Ahmanet. Boutella's performance as the mummy is captivating, and her eerie presence looms over the entire film. While she is undeniably the villain of the story, there is also a tragic element to her character that makes her a sympathetic figure in some ways. Cruise's performance as Nick is charismatic and energetic, and his chemistry with Wallis is both believable and engaging.

Along with its action-packed plot and impressive special effects, "The Mummy" also features a wider mythology that hints at a shared universe of classic movie monsters. Easter eggs and nods to other horror icons like Dracula and the Invisible Man are scattered throughout the film, teasing the possibility of future installments in the franchise.

Overall, "The Mummy" is a thrilling and visually stunning adventure that brings a fresh and exciting twist to a classic horror story. With its talented cast, impressive effects, and tantalizing hints at a larger cinematic universe, it's a must-see for fans of action, horror, and adventure films alike.

The Mummy is a 2017 fantasy movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 50 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 34.
