Mummy, like many in this word. Many people immediately understand that we are talking about the adventures, Ancient Egypt, the pharaohs and the Brendan Fraser. Remember how at the age of 10 I watched the first part with great interest, because Stephen Sommers has created a great adventure Thriller for the whole family, despite scenes where there are dead people all of which suck all the life juices. The characters all had very colorful and unique. The story was addictive from the first minutes and kept until the very end a good plot, great humor, quality action. Upon learning that Universal bosses are going to do a restart of this franchise, I was really hoping that by doing so they voskresit career of Fraser, which now rests like an ancient Egyptian mummy in dozens of meters underground. Alas, my expectations were not fulfilled, and the lead role has taken at least charismatic actor of our time Tom Holland Tom cruise. Indeed thereby the user gives us to understand that the film must be a blockbuster, because That is not a priori plays in low budget and uninteresting movie. Unfortunately, the only thing in this film was interesting is the role Cruz, who plays “the thief Daisy” named Nick Morton shousaga the rooftops and able to joke when the bullets fly 10 cm from his head. Annabel Watson (Jennifer something, because I do not remember the name) is an archaeologist who used to get her way, focused only on their work. Sofia Buttel (mummy will Amanet) the main antagonist, which is able to fight with sticks against inflated Egyptian soldiers being herself without muscles, as well as the mummy shausha everywhere and making “a Hickey of death” to recover and thereby create zombie followers. Russell Crowe is a scientist who is head of Jennifer “something”, to talk in detail about it will not, for the spoiler. The film itself is very predictable in terms of events that the viewer expects to see. The plot is basically the same simple in a certain place at a certain time a group of people finding the tomb, which turns out to be a prison, and buried there, the Queen will Amanet for her evil deeds against his own family. After the sarcophagus can get, and it makes naturally Tom cruise, thereby it awakens the “great evil”, which thanks him for the release as well as Imhotep Evie in the remake of 1999. And the mummy starts chasing the main character, because he believes his favourites. Unlike the great works of Somers, film Alex Kurtzman saturated with darkness and rigidity, that can be a plus. At times the film even resembled a horror, with a predictable screamer, but still a horror, why the heart a little twitch. All actions are accompanied by the action of a good quality that was sometimes borrowed from the game “Uncharted” because at least the first 20-25 minutes of the film very much like a game, and resembled a fight from the film Sommers, where the character Rick O’connell took over Imhotep and flew from side to side. Fights with mummies zombies are particularly cool. Speaking of mummies if you take them as a traditional way, such, simply, there is only zombies that were formed from the “Hickey’s death” will Amanet, it is also used to control other undead, how is unclear, perhaps probably it is because it is supernatural evil, but it seemed a little silly. About the main antagonisti can say that it is not as steep as Imhotep, maybe because I don’t see as a mummy woman? Possible. Yes, she does acrobatic stunts, yeah, she’s ruthless, but it does not have the charisma of “villain” which had Arnold Vosloo, he was mostly a silent role, he played look and some phrases that are translated “six”. And Amanat we have English and know well, and ancient Egyptian, but really, it’s a little funny. Good in this film humor, that’s where it is inserted when it is necessary and sometimes you even don’t expect. Unfortunately I have not seen in the movie of Egypt, who wanted all that the viewer can see several pyramids, and the apartments of the Royal family, which did not give masshtabny the scope picture, as well as the desert, where the main antagonisti trains. All. The whole movie takes place mostly in London the night or in dark places in order to catch up the terrifying atmosphere of the viewer, and sometimes tired eyes. Sometimes the picture is intersected with flashbacks, which show the solar time of day, why eyeballs trying to get out from the overload of light. Graphics and the camera work looks very good, I believe that the budget is involved as it is necessary in this matter. Music from Brian Tyler is inferior to Jerry Goldsmith’s soundtrack is nothing special, not memorable, except for a couple of moments that I vaguely remember. There are nice Easter eggs that will be able to see the attentive viewer, at least I was pleased.
Leaving the session I had mixed feelings, like it’s a dark Thriller with elements of horror, which was originally intended to be a horror as it was in the 1932 film. But still a remake of 1999 at the time set a very high bar, and the management of Universal went to great lengths to outdo its predecessor. Unfortunately they failed to do so, but this movie they gave an impetus for the development of its universe of classic monsters “Dark Universe”, such as Dracula, Frankenstein, etc. I Hope that monsters get much better than “the Mummy”. In any case, people will compare the version in 2017 with the version of 1999, and obviously the odds will be in favor of the latter. On this film you can go once, but if you view then online, then you especially have nothing to lose, or rather did not lose anything.
