The Mummy

The Mummy har nu haft premiär i USA och är hittills sågad av den amerikanska kritikerkåren. Filmen är tänkt som introduktionen till Dark Universe - Universal Studios monsterfilm-serie. Men hur stor satsningen blir sägs hänga på huruvida The Mummy säljer och går hem hos publiken. Än så länge ser det alltså mörkt ut för Dark Universe. Kan Tom Cruise rädda filmen från att bli en kassaflopp?

Så här säger de stora magasin, som gått hårdast åt mot filmen:

New York Daily News - 40/100

Sure it’s got big, blurry action scenes, a plane crash, and an army of dusty, mindless zombies. But I think some of them may have been the screenwriters, because the movie’s practically lifeless. - Stephen Whitty

The Guardian - 40/100

It’s a ragbag of action scenes which needed to be bandaged more tightly. - Peter Bradshaw

Screen International - 40/100

Everything about The Mummy strains solely towards setting up a franchise in a world which only makes sense to its writers. - Fionnuala Halligan
The Wrap - 30/100

If Dark Universe is going to conjure a new, interconnected world of evil, it’s going to have to lose the feeling that we’re being sold something, and invent new forms of weird and woolly. In the meantime, this “Mummy” is rags that produce no riches. - Robert Abele

Indiewire - 16/100

It’s not that it’s bad, it’s that it never could have been good. It’s an irredeemable disaster from start to finish, an adventure that entertains only via glimpses of the adventure it should have been. - David Ehrlich
