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?
The Mummy is a joyless and soulless bore of a disaster. Nothing about the movie works, and I hate it for even TRYING to be like Indy— Devindra Hardawar (@Devindra) June 7, 2017
After seeing THE MUMMY last night, I'm really rooting for it Tutank at the box office this weekend.— Justin Chang (@JustinCChang) June 7, 2017
The Mummy made me so angry at how it treats women that I nearly ripped my notebook in half so... yeah.— Clarisse Loughrey (@clarisselou) June 7, 2017

Hey, but at least one guy says it's not as bad as "Alien: Covenant." So there's that.
There are some dumdum moments in 'The Mummy' but I'd take this crew over 'Alien: Covenant' dumdums any day. @ScottWamplerBMD thoughts?— Dr. Claw, MD (@DrClawMD) June 7, 2017
