Movie Review: The Mummy (2017)

Did you miss Ethan Hunt? Well, he’s back! Nope, not in Mission Impossible but in The Mummy — the impregnable Tom Cruise that is, and this time as Nick Morton. So get ready!

The Synopsis. Nick Morton is a soldier of fortune who plunders ancient sites for timeless artifacts and sells them to the highest bidder. When Nick and his partner come under attack in the Middle East, the ensuing battle accidentally unearths Ahmanet, a betrayed Egyptian princess who was entombed under the desert for thousands of years. With her powers constantly evolving, Morton must now stop the resurrected monster as she embarks on a furious rampage through the streets of London.

While Tom’s youthful looks and daring stunts still amazes many, of course, there are those who would just base things on his age — which is actually absurd! Hey, if Tom could still do it without looking awkward or something, then just roll the dice!

Still, one thing is apparent tho. The story line. It’s just so common.

The Mummy (played by Sofia Boutella)

A free spirit accidentally wakes up some mummy then chaos follows. Thus, what then would be left to watch as the film has become even more predictable? The cast? The action scenes? The effects? The setting, the makeups?

Well, that doesn’t sound so encouraging. T’is just like t’was filmed for a quick buck which incidentally made a killing — but understandably, not as much as Wonder Woman though. Guess the injecting of Dr. Jekyll with a serum to prevent himself from transforming into his evil alter-ego was kinda dreary and not so good for the film then.

The choice of actors as well as the effects were, well, okay though — but still not enough ‘mummy power’ to be a game changer.

Many times, it could be the seasonal views that takes one’s breath away.. here we could see the appeal of Tom’s 300-acre property.

Though the inside looks like a regular cabin, hey, it’s big and spacious – and especially great to be in during those cold winter months.

While the main house actually has 4 bedrooms and 6 baths including a recreation room and library plus a large sports court..

The property also has a guesthouse large enough to hole in 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, all in its 1,600 square foot guest domain.

telluride4Then again, can you afford this place for $59 million? Cool as it is, it’s still kinda steep.. especially when you’re just basically in the woods.
