My Thoughts

I give The Mummy Blu-ray a B+.

I think the last Mummy film I saw was the very first one that was released in 1999 with Brendan Fraiser.   I came into this one not knowing anything about it and was really excited to see it.

I really did enjoy this Blu-ray.  The bonus features are enough to keep you entertained as well as the film. It’s action-packed, has zombies, and Sofia Boutella is breathtaking as Ahmanet. Tom Cruise (who seems to never age) gave a high energy performance and was amazing as Nick Morton.  Russell Crowe, who played Henry Jekyll was equally amazing.

There are many things I liked about this Blu-ray/film.  I loved the minions to Ahmanet (Boutella).  They were zombie-like and the special effects were well done.  You knew it was CGI but it didn’t look like it on screen.  I also like the scene with the plane.  I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire scene, hoping that Nick (Cruise) and Jenny (Annabelle Wallis) would escape. I loved the back story of Ahmanet as well.

Catch The Mummy out on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital HD Tuesday, September 12th!
