Wow, even worse than '80s dud "Cocktail"? Apparently so, since another critic blasted it as "a joyless and soulless bore of a disaster." Eep!
It's not a good start for the launch of Universal's "Dark Universe," with reboots of "Bride of Frankenstein," "The Wolfman" and "Dracula" already announced. "The Mummy" currently has a 27% Rotten Tomatoes critics score, which puts it in the review basement along with 2004's "Van Helsing."
Maybe time to bring Brendan Fraser back to battle mummies?

There are some dumdum moments in 'The Mummy' but I'd take this crew over 'Alien: Covenant' dumdums any day. @ScottWamplerBMD thoughts?
