Review: 'The Mummy' is an Almost Enjoyable Mess

The Mummy opens up with the Universal intro, which rotates around to reveal "Dark Universe," an amber-tinted logo over a black globe. This reboot of the Universal monster series seeks to update its classic creatures in the action-adventure genre. This first entry in the franchise follows Princess Ahmanet (Sophia Boutella), a power-hungry Egyptian ruler buried alive for her crimes. When her tomb is unearthed by grave robber and Navy Seal Nick Morton (Tom Cruise), Ahmanet awakens and makes plans to unleash the Egyptain God of Death onto the world.
