The Mummy 2017 (R-13)




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.-  WWW

MPAA Rating:  USA PG 13, Philippines R-13(I agree with the Philippine Rating this time)
The trailer was pretty scary so we did not watch it via 3D 4DX.  My nephew wanted to watch it, but the reviews said it is too intense for children.  Yes.  The reviewers are right. It is pretty intense. 

For all it's worth, the movie is well-acted, especially by Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson.

Tom Cruise, I think, is maximising roles like these because he knows that in a decade or so, if he's like Sean Connery that is, he should lessen the action, unless he finds the fountain of youth(I think he found droplets anyway).

Russel Crowe is Russel Crowe.  He is good.

There were parts that I wish were different, but all in all, I think it "delivered".  

By the way, this movie is nothing like the Brendan Fraser/Rachel Weisz movie series.  It's not even a sequel, but it has the same message: Curiosity killed the cat.
