'The Mummy' a fine beginning to new era of monster movies

"The Mummy" is a mess, a movie in such a hurry to introduce more monsters under Universal's "Dark Universe" banner that it comes awkwardly wrapped in impenetrable layers of exposition.

When Morton unknowingly sets Ahmanet free, she decides that he is the "Chosen One" to be Set's mortal vessel when she tries the ritual again. There, Jekyll (Russell Crowe) loses control and turns into Mr. Hyde. In this one, there is no Brendan Fraser insight.

"The nonsensical story would matter less if The Mummy would get out of Cruise's way and let him do what he does best". Scary is great, but a little heart would have really helped. But those moments "are no match for the cumbersome, convoluted story, not to mention the nonexistent chemistry between Cruise and [Annabelle] Wallis", she notes.

Russell Crowe is on board here as Dr. Henry Jekyll, the head of some sort of monster society that will likely bridge the Dark Universe films.

OH city makes plans for North Korea-held student's funeral
The usual menu of retaliatory measures against North Korea include sanctions that target its businesses and officials. The Hamilton County Coroner's Office has issued a statement regarding the actual cause of Otto Warmbier's death.

Those action sequences are pretty cool.

Over the course of the movie's nearly two hour run time, it seemed as if nothing ever really happened. Let's just hope that it lasts long enough for us to see all the monsters get their time to roar.

Ahmanet appears to die at the end of the film but Boutella hints that there may well be more to come from this particular Universal monster: "She stayed alive in that sarcophagus for 5,000 years so why not for another two years?" For example, after a supernatural incident, a dead character haunts Cruise in such a tone-deaf way that it feels like a Tommy Wiseau-directed version of An American Werewolf in London.

"The most unbelievable thing for me watching the fight was they are both incredible actors and both have done their fair share of fight scenes in movies separately but to watch them come together was great", he said. "What? Why does every film these days have to part of a cinematic universe?"

Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez 'not contemplating' Cristiano Ronaldo exit
He has claimed a haul of domestic trophies with Chelsea and other clubs. Perez added: "Now we want to win three successive Champions Leagues".

One bright spot is Jake Johnson, who plays Nick's zombified friend, except that it nearly feels like he's in a different movie, such is the comic relief he brings to this weirdly apocalyptic movie.

"And when you do a fight scene like that, you have to throw a real punch, you have to be so experienced that you have to know exactly how to miss and their technical ability to choreograph that while also protecting each other was pretty wonderful to watch".

This may be the movie's worst conceptual misfire. Of course, if you're Universal, you want good reviews to entice the talent.
